Do you love Instagram pictures? Do they help you make an emotional connection to the subject?

Guess what – now we can combine all the things you love! Realtor photos, soft focus, distortions, and other filters!

Just look at this photo above. What emotions does this evoke for you? Does it make you feel better about spending $765 per square foot for this house?

1bd/1ba land value only. Please do not disturb occupants.

imageThis house has practically everything you want in a listing from Burbed. 

We’ve featured it before!  It has no value as a residence, yet there are people living in it.  Plus the tenants living there mean you can’t look inside the house, and the agent isn’t going to show you any interior pictures.  It’s been pending for more than half a year!  It sold for $401,000… ten years ago.  Talk about instant equity!

imagePlus you get this AWESOME sign that matches the house paint, right in front of the white picket fence, reminding you of the other places you could have chosen to find a DEAL.

If only this house were closer to the freeway or built on a Superfund site.  Then it would be the Absolutely Perfect Burbed Property.

But it isn’t, and that means the $199K is just a starting point for your overbidding.  HURRY, WON’T LAST!

NEARLY 1 ACRE of LAND (36,062 SF. ) THE PROPERTY HAS LOTS OF POTENTIAL. TRUE VALUE IS IN THE LAND. “REGULAR SALE”. A very rare finding property in San Jose—nearby lots of public amenities. “REGULAR SALE”! — OPPORTUNITY !!! OPPORTUNITY !!! OPPORTUNITY !!! MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.

imageTired of living in a cooped-up apartment?  Hate hearing neighbors through walls?  Maybe you need some elbow room, and you’ll fit plenty of elbows here.  Haven’t you heard?  This is a very rare finding property.  Also the agent is USING ALL CAPS because he can’t believe this one isn’t a short sale or REO.

That means faster turnaround time for YOU to MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE because the bank won’t be throwing roadblocks at you every step of the way.  You can definitely make a lot of dreams come true with this much space, as long as your dream included South San Jose.  But it says OPPORTUNITY !!! three times.

So why are you still here? Go! Go!

Value is in the land. Home is not habitable. Fantastic opportunity to build close to downtown Los Gatos off Jackson St. Lot features private road access and is located in the Los Gatos school district. Plans for 2318 sq. ft. home are available. Los Gatos Planning Dept. needs to approve.

Phew. For a minute there I thought this was going to be a bad surprise. Fortunately this find from Burbed reader Herve turns out to be a great find!

Not only are you buying into a vision, like a true Silicon Valley resident, you’re buying into a vision of a house! A 2318 sqft house!

Personally, I think the best part is the private road. Let’s say that you start the next must have social networking yogurt cupcake site – boom, papparizzi up the wazoo! Fortunately, this private road will help keep your privacy private. Private cat wants privacy.

I also like the fact that the 1 is gone from the post. How Lostish!

You’ve gotta admit, those are some amazing views. And once you spend another $579500 building this house, you can spend all day admiring your private, million dollar view. Win win if you ask me!
