Today’s high-end luxury find is thanks to Burbed reader Fun Dip, with a fun-filled first Guest Post from the land of high-scoring schools and higher-hitting prices. All I have to say in introducing this pimped-out palace is YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE! It’s going, going, GONE! Yes this place sold faster than the parents queue up for Kindergarten registration at Lincoln Elementary.

Not only is the 5/2 really a 3/1 + 2/1, but more awesomeness in the description
- surrounded by large, elegant newer homes! (really? this is such a crap box, you have to talk about the houses surrounding it?)
- rectangular lot! (OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!)
- and convenient commute … to… Whole Foods! (you know, in case some bagger really has an eye on that cottage)
Now I heard of people during the peak peak peak years buying up crapboxes in this zip for like 700k, tearing it down, getting another nice line of credit to build a new house for 600k or so…. so I couldn’t figure out why this house is listed at $1,088,888.
Then I read on in your blog that zip 90514 comes in at #188 in terms of ranking, so maybe Listing Agent Nora Cook figured a few more lucky 8′s, maybe add a zero for good measure, and prestomagic!!
