Not for the Faint of Heart

Here is the realtor write-up for this Mill Valley 2 br 1 ba PoS; it speaks for itself: "This is a major fixer... Bring your contractor clients. This is not a property for the faint of heart! Please be careful when showing." So how much do you think a house that is dangerous for people to enter will go for in Mill Valley? How overpriced is Marin, really? This thing is asking $549,000.

While perusing the listing, I am seeing more statements like this one from a realtor for a different listing:

"$20k price reduction*** owner offering $5,000 cash at closing. To help w/ n.R. Closing costs or cash out to the buyer!"

i love what you're doing here on your blog. The housing market in Marin is beyond laughable.

I wonder if there is a newly emerging trend of RE agents telling the unvarnished truth?

Surely, in this litiginous neck of the woods, those rosey writeups we have been seeing must have gotten somebody in legal trouble in the past.

good work. just when I thought that we were stuck having to look at San Geronimo Valley POSs- Mill Valley comes in and shows its true colors.

Hey, if you want real value, you don't even have to drive all the way out to Marin. You can live in a 50 year-old shoebox in Pacifica for $760K. As the copy says, it's "contemporary" (meaning "square"), and if you stand out in the street, you can see a hill.

I didn't know there were meth labs in Marin county! I would think this house would have been condemned by now.

Any interior pix? Is this is a catbox property? Perhaps condemned for health and safety or structural violations? The post above nominates it for the neighborhood meth lab, but there's way too much wood on the exterior for it to survive a mishap of methlab proportions.
