Needs a lot of work

Here’s a house for the budget-conscious. You may not get much when you look for “affordable housing” in the Bay Area, but at least there won’t be huge swathes of ugly.  Just small ones.

Fixer upper house this property needs a lot of work, two story building with a large back yard.

If a 3500 square foot lot leads to “a large back yard,” just imagine how much “a lot of work” adds up to. Our money is on that streetname illustrating just one of the many kinds of fixes in store.

Come and see this custom built Eichler in Oakland. You will own the house that everyone talks about. This house is an architectural masterpiece and the additional master bed and bath make it incredible. This is the only Eichler in this part of Oakland. Open House April 6th, 10 AM- 12PM.

130508-83rd-saluteHere’s what dollarbin thought of the place:

I’ve been sitting on this one for quite some time and it’s finally pending but as a short sale, I bet it will have a long luxurious escrow.  Check out the listing price history, more ups and downs than a whack-a-mole game. Bring on the Eichler lovers!

There’s so much to salute about this property, it’s hard to figure out where to start the rollout.  How about we take a look at all the attractive price points it has offered in search of the One True Buyer.

No wonder it’s selling shortly!  Don’t miss the Open House, either! Um, whoops.  Hey, this is the only Eichler in this part of Oakland!

Great 3 BR/1 BA home with Tall ceilings! (Buyer to verify)

Who’s priced out forever, and getting more priced out by the minute in Bay Area Bubble 4.0?  Not you! Not when you check out this completely affordable home in Oakmmphf CLOSE TO SAN FRANCISCO. Heck, you could pick up this sweet little lodging on your way home from the grocery store.  Well, you could if there were a grocery store anywhere near it.
