600 amp panel? Sold! And that’s just for starters!
Because you know what else this place has? Elegance! Prestige! Why it’s boisting wit’ klayuss! Why? Kawlums! Everything’s better with kawlums!
Although, not so fast. A look at the property history suggests this place has been on the market a lot more than one day. Or one time. Take a look at the death throes of someone’s dream:
Hey, the price has been going back up for almost a year! Even the short sales show that Bay Area Bubble 4.0 is firmly inflated! Blurry pictures, Christmas at Easter, more than a 50% haircut with amazing price history going back six years, and if you spent this much money in Palo Alto, there wouldn’t be a kawlum in sight!
Is that #winning or what?
