As long as I got one real estate agent annoyed with us, let’s take this find from another one. My good buddy Greg Fielding actually posted this listing to patrick.net and expected to get a friendly reception there. I told him he should have posted it here. Then I realized, why wait on Greg to write it up? I’m sure he wants this listing on as many real estate sites as possible!
SQ. FT.: 6,120
$/SQ. FT.: $212
LOT SIZE: 0.69 Acres
YEAR BUILT: 1925
COUNTY: Contra Costa
ON REDFIN: 1 day
NEW LISTING (24 HOURS)
Expansive, Spanish-style home with secluded feel yet close to everything. Master suite w/ fireplace & soaking tub occupies 2nd floor. Boasts den w/ fireplace, dining room, wet bar, & kitchen with too many features to list. Deck w/ built-in BBQ & firepit, perfect for entertaining. A must-see!
This place’s former homedebtors would have been better off realizing that with three fireplaces plus a firepit, the answer to their financial woes was staring them right in the face. Instead, the bank took this disaster from them along with $1,835,379 of a two million dollar mortgage that was never going to be made good. Now, three or four entities later, whichever finance company ended up owning this Spanish elephant is actually throwing it onto the market in hopes of seeing some of the money again.
So you can now consider moving into this expansive, Spanish-style monument home with secluded finances feel yet close to bankruptcy court everything. There are too many features to list! Don’t you think they should list what you get for those $400 of homeowner fees?
- Other Item Included in Fee
- Other Amenity
- Other HOA Documents
- Other Transfer Fee
While you’re puzzling over what that “other amenity” could possibly be for $4800 a year (I think it’s martinis for the lawyer who drew up those HOA documents), let’s admire the bathroom. It could use some mawbul kawlums, I suppose, but you’re not in much danger of falling asleep in the soaking tub with this bold, innovative color scheme.
There are a few other parts of the house with similar décor, so if you’re a bold, innovative person you might appreciate what’s been done with some of these rooms. Then again, if you’re a bold, innovative person, you might also know better than to leave other people’s bold, innovative interior decoration around for your party guests to snicker gape at. Perfect for entertaining, indeed!
And it looks like the bold, innovative people who borrowed way too much on this house also made bold, innovative moves like putting in improvements without bothering to get any necessary building permits.
Now, let’s salute the agent who had the bold, innovative idea to encourage readers and fans of one of the Biggest Bear Housing Market Sites Eveh to come on down and check out this REO. Given that his site is usually a breath of fresh air refreshingly free from Now is the Time to Buy hype, this one’s for you, Greg!
