Hope everyone had a very happy 4th of July. Now that we’ve declared our Independence, let’s get back to looking at some housing win. Today’s entry is from Burbed reader Tom Paine, to which we say, thank you very much for this superb structure in Sebastopol.
Sebastopol, in case you’re checking, was not, is not, and never will be part of the Real Bay Area. However, the market is so hot, hot, HOT… even this place is pending.

This property is not buildable. The septic system needs to be replaced and the property is too small for the County of Sonoma to allow that. There is no well. County will NOT allow this property to be refurbished. Land only.
Here’s what Tom had to say about this lucky listing:
You can’t build on it and you can’t get a permit to fix it because there’s no room for a septic system. Soooo $65k for .130 acres with a structure that needs to be demolished because it is an attractive nuisance. On floodplain. Who could pass this one up!
The real question is, which one of the neighboring property owners snapped this up? Because there isn’t a good reason to buy this if you don’t own the lot adjoining it, is there? Maybe our readers can solve this mystery!
