CONTRACTORS DREAM! in Fremont

Happy Monday! Let’s get back to some housing win by sticking our toe just the teensiest bit into the East Bay. Noooo, we don’t mean Oakland or Berkeley or Richmond. We mean just over the Alameda County line but almost in Silicon Valley: Fremont! Or as our hard-working real estate professionals call it: Fre-tastic!*

130915-mission-cabinets* This is somewhat of an exaggeration on our part (by which we mean a complete lie). We don’t know anyone who calls the city Fre-tastic, although we did overhear one realtard tell a client that this area was Fre-netic. That’s good, right?

And speaking of good, this will be an awesome house for any small children you happen to have lying around. Not only is the playground all set up in front, look what’s in your back yard!

That’s not just ordinary railroad tracks, but a railroad station for Niles Canyon Railway. Yes, good old-fashioned trains, in your very own backyard! Or close enough to smell them, anyway! Whoo-whoo!  Oops, we mean WHOO-WHOO!

CHECK W/ CITY REGARDING POSSIBILITIES!

BLACK FRIDAY DEALS: Cheapest House in Fremont!

Fremont doesn’t get anywhere near enough attention from Burbed, but today we take a step toward correcting that oversight.  This is a DEAL, DEAL, DEAL that should make anyone happy. 

Fremont: Close enough to Silicon Valley that commuting is in the realm of possibility, yet with all the quality features we’ve come to expect from close-in areas such as Redwood City, East Palo Alto, or Alum Rock!

The house has plenty of history, too.  Plenty of listing history.  BUY NOW!!!!!!

Contractor Special in Old Niles. Bring your skills and reap the benefits!

Thanks to Burbed reader CB for this find.

Wow. Now you too can live like a pharaoh in Fremont! Frankly, I never knew that there was a community known as Niles there – learn something new every day.

I think most Real Bay Area people can really bring their skills and reap the benefits. Let’s see… bring on some Ruby on Rails, some Objective C, some .NET, some Beans, some SQL – PRESTO! You’ve got a $500k house!

But wait, there’s more! It really is near a river!

Wow… once you hire a team of archaeologists and interior decorators, you’ll be soon living near the banks of a mighty river, and with easy access to Mission Boulevard to boot!

Fit for a king. Fit for you!
