Amazing opportunity in prime location – right next to SJSU and behind San Jose City Hall. This fantastic property has 11 rooms (possible to add 3 more), 3 bathrooms, common area, coin operated laundry machine in the spacious basement. Plenty of parking spaces available in the large backyard. Options for Fraternity house, business, restaurant or duplex. Buyers to confirm use permits.
Wow, sonarrat, I’m speechless. Has there ever been a property on Burbed before where the agent suggests it would make a great Frat house? Fraternity brothers take such good care of the premises, too! It would be such a shame to turn this into a business or restaurant instead. Then it could burn down when a waiter trips holding a tray full of flaming shots for the frat brothers who bought down the street.
Look, we know in life there are winners and there are losers. Not everyone who can send their kids to college gets to send them to Stanford. So if your son or daughter is as upset about their options as you’ll be, why not pick up this conveniently located little dwelling as a consolation prize, and skip the whole dorm thing? Let the college kid learn about the real world by writing leases, collecting rents and evicting deadbeats! Plus, you can sell it at a profit in seven or eight years when your child finally graduates. Yes, seven or eight years, because with those budget cuts, there’s no way the school’s letting anyone graduate in just four.
Real Bay Area property doubles every ten years, so this is an investment that more than pays for itself. Remember, it’s got a coin-operated laundry machine.
