The Ultimate Marin Real Estate Value

This one was sent in by a reader. Thank you whoever you are because this one is classic. Ok, so it's not a SFH. It's a "Condo/Coop/Other" PoS in Mill Valley, built relatively recently (for Marin that is) in 1972, that the realtor calls a "Superlative home".

Websters has two definitions for the word "superlative":
  1. Of the highest order, quality, or degree; surpassing or superior to all others.
  2. Excessive or exaggerated.
Aside from being b**t ugly, it is, according to the realtor write-up, "...the ultimate Marin real estate V A L U E!". So given that, the realtor must be using the first definition of "superlative" as I see nothing excessive or exaggerated about this one (other than its ugliness). Well there 'ya go; 'nuff said. And the 'ultimate Marin real estate value' will only cost you $600,000.

I actually live in that complex. It is the Shelter Ridge Condo's in MV. That's funny. I visited a 3 bedroom 1100 SQ.Ft. condo there 8 months ago that was a pure dump (no renovation or even cleaning) for $780k. People are simply out of their minds in panic mode. Times are-a-changing. I am waiting, while people have been buying, I have been saving for a big down...
