Who Are They Kidding?

This gem is burned out according to the description. Completely burned out. So it’s a shell of a house. They want close to 300K for it. The delusional values it at 436K. The last time the house sold, in 2001, it sold for 36K. Fundamentals, schmundamentals.


Another Home in Gang Territory

I continue to be fascinated by some of the listings out there. I’ve seen ads describing houses that look to be one step up from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre house with descriptions like “fascinating,” “enviable.” Yes.

Is This a Record on Record Ave?

You can have your own box with a window and slot for your car for only $329K!


How Many Bedrooms Are There In This LA Charmer?

Maybe squatters knocked down the wall between the bedrooms then tore out the copper pipes in the second bathroom to sell so they could some buy crack so they had to revise the listing?

What the F*$#@&

Couldn’t resist one more…just one more…holy shit.  Here you go for 350K:
