thanks for that link McD... I have another running joke with the wife when in the LBC... we would go into an open house and I immediately mark mentally the walls we need to knock down...  the house above basically just has three rooms... nice...!  From the street, the house looks very awkward, and BTW Ilike a little privacy...

   Thoughts?  Reactions?  I think it's nicely upgraded... I like the vaulted ceiling, and all the wood and windows.. and kept the tradition of the house but brought out the newness... next to El Dorado... and a big lot!

   

   It's being sold by a flipper.  A month ago, he paid $129k less than list price for it.

My wife is drooling over this find over the weekend... any comments? Price..?

   

   

   

   If you liked that one you must love this one. Right down the street. Dropped its price 60 big ones today! The flag is up! Ane ther they go...who will win the race to the bottom?

   

   376 Audra Dr

   

   The views on that one appear to be blocked by the neighbor.  The Wendy Lane house directly overlooks the water, which has to command a premium.

   

   Lopped off $60,000.00 today. Not a bad savings for a blocked view

the price war has begun.. we know the house on Audra is very motivated... it's a single mom with two kids, who bought a more affordable house and NEEDS to sell now!!  Sad story,, apparently the husband left her with a infant... we like Audra a little better... Not that there is a lot of traffic, but the street runs straight into the house on Wendy Ln...

This house on Ultimo is back... the house had a Escrow Sign out front, but I guess fell through...  it was listed for $790, but since has been raised to $799, go figure?  A house drops out of escrow which justifies a price increase?

   Over $800/sf for an apartment sized home with a super tiny lot?  LOL  The owner was stupid enough to pay over $1,000/sf...them are Manhattan prices.  Call me when this baby is below $500k.

Even the rich can run out of money. I seem to see these more and more around here, not even the Peninsula is imune. Look at this "as is" sale in a very nice area

   Man, just $75,000.00 short. That must have hurt.

   

   "BEST VALUE! HUGE PRICE REDUCTION! 'As-Is', call (800) 456-9107 to preview. Almost finished, estimated $75k to complete."

   

   Well the markets has certainly turned on the Peninsula. this place is now squarely on the appreciation path. Best of luck with that.

   OK, so you got it at auction and dropped the 75 big ones in to get a garage door...and now you think it is worth $700,000.00 more in just 2 short months? Brother you must own a medical marijuana dispensary cause you my friend are HIGH!!!
