Be a San Francisco media giant!

Let’s finish out the week with another find in San Francisco. Once those Facebookers get their hands on all that IPO money, lots and land there are going to be made out of unobtainium.  Thanks very much to Burbed reader Petsmart Groomer for this SoMa spot, ready for your serendipity.

Billboard on Site


This urban homestead, or Garage 4.0, depending on what use you feel is best, ready for you to build upon.  But there’s so much more than a generous half of a tenth of an acre lot.  There’s also a steady stream of hard liquor advertising dollars, too.

Well, the billboard seems attached to the building next door, but we didn’t say the advertising payments would be going to you.  The agent just notes there is a “Billboard on Site”. 

The photo also reveals that you’re close to transit.  Real close.  So let’s get a better picture of the lot, courtesy of Google Streetview.


Billboard still on site.  Facebook’s better watch out for you!

Thanks to Burbed reader M.D. for this find!
What? No photo? Here’s one from Google:

Why yes! That’s exactly what I would expect for $1M.

Here’s what Burbed reader M.D. had to say:

this one is so hot they can’t even show a pic.  actually it’s not yet built, so you’re buying a dream in mt view.  if the builder thinks that’s a legit price, maybe someone should take away his wood glue – no sniffing allowed on the job.
btw – i live in that zip code and i don’t think anything has sold for over $900k in the past 1 1/2 yrs – probably nothing over 850k. 

Can’t you just imagine the beauty that you can build here? 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms… with great room concept! Sure it may look like a field of weeds now, but with just another $500,000 you can your Mountain View masterpiece.

More importantly, your house will truly stand out from your neighbors. You know what they say – you want to have the best house in the worst street. Or something like that.

If this isn’t a great deal for those with great imaginations, I don’t know what is!
