Boring, Nothing-Special Novato PoS

Again, Marin realtors really need to learn how to use their light meters (and check out this one and this one too both of which point out how sometimes something called a "tripod" is necessary). Light meters come with the camera after all and usually when a part comes with something that part is important for some aspect of normal functioning. As a service to Marin County real estate I provide this link for all the light-meter-challenged realtors out there.

But anyway, this boring, nothing-special 1954 house is located dead center in boring, nothing-special Novato. Nothing special has been done to it other than a new coat of paint and a new water heater. The write-up says it has "originally a 2 car garage" which I am guessing means that the garage has been converted down to a capacity of 0-1 cars. Anyway, this yawner will cost you $599,000. Thank goodness it's not $600K or it would be over-priced for sure.

I saw the listing, and it's a 3BR/2BA, around 1100 sqft.

I guess the Arlington owners are not sure about their bet and have it advertised to rent as well.

Ahh, I missed some of your older POS postings. Pretty hilarious!

I'd be curious to see who is buying these ugly crap-boxes. Investors? Millionaires? I/O, neg-am borrowers expecting to sell next year for 20% profit??

Mind boggling.

Another POS "vintage classic san rafael home". i.e. Built 105 years ago!

Have you seen the listing at 19 Lovell Ave in Mill Valley? It is another "pied-a-terre" with 1 bedroom and (as highlighted in the listing) washer and dryer hookups! And it is only $630k! I walked by it this morning, and it just barely fits on its lot.
