Contractor special. Small house on a big lot. Potential for new construction/addition.

$666 per square foot is pretty reasonable, given that this house isn’t in the Real Bay Area. But let’s face it, the real selling point of this house is that it is earthquake proof! Just from looking at this picture, you can already tell that this house has been stress tested and is well equipped to handle the next calamity.

Why risk the lives of you children by buying a brand new house that’s unproven? You want a house that you know has withstood the test of time. Furthermore, it’s like those $250 jeans – this house is distressed and distressed is HAWT.

It’ll also confuse robbers! “What is this? A pile of wood? A house? I’ll move on to the next place.” Safety first my friends!

So go ahead, go vintage. Go buy this house.
