This boring PoS in Novato, built in 1960, goes for $679,000 if you can believe that. Of course, real Marin snobs will tell you that Novato doesn't count as being "Marin" so this post is disqualified. (In fact, anything "over the hill", i.e., north of Greenbrae, is not Marin according to these people.) Anyway, this house is so run-of-the-mill, even the picture of the kitchen is a joke at this price -- no upgrades whatsoever, not even the coveted granite countertops (they are that cheap plastic stuff). I'd post the picture but I want to keep each post down to one image.

Nice...although the Kentfield mansion definitely wins the Biggest POS in Marin award so far.

As for Novato not being the "real Marin": I moved from Novato to Tiburon in the early '70s, and some of the nice folks in Tiburon treated us like we had just rode in from Oklahoma. It was like, "Novato? Oh you poor thing!"

Nice. I guess I'll need to find a gem in Tiburon now.

OK. Here's my POS candidate for Tiburon. Another '50s tract home, but placed on the market for about 1.1 million. Do check it out.
