Tiburon PoS

2 br, 1 ba, built in 1952, 874 sq ft, no "lifestyle" upgrades. It's a Tiburon "boutique" PoS at $1,062,500. Come live in Tiburon where everyone hates everyone else and there is no parking except what you have to fight for.

Over $1200/sqft for what looks like a slab floor, and few improvements (apparently no ceiling insul, old windows and doors). Give me a break! It does sit on .29 acres, but how much is buildable?

And you're right: the social ambiance in Tib is decidedly cold; if I had the money to buy there, I'd pick somewhere else first.

I know of two families who now live in Novato (oh, the "poor" people) and who used to live in Tiburon and describe their departures as "fled".

The really sad thing is that up until the early '70s, the people in Tiburon weren't cold at all. Up until then, Tiburon was populated by families who lived there when it was a railroad yard and fishing harbor. Just regular working folk.

Everything changed when the nouveaux riche scum from other parts of the country "discovered" the place, and brought their money and "what about me?" attitude with them. Now, you couldn't pay me to live there.

come on guys, the residents of the slums of tib (where yours truely lives) aren't that cold...it is the wind that is that cold. The few remaining families that live on our street or the next one over are really friendly, and we have really friendly neighbors...except for the one or two sociopaths.

Whenever there is a lecture at the library or a community event, all the old crusty sierra club ladies and gents are pleasant to anyone who is less than 80 years old - as long as you are white.

Residents who live south of trestle glenn are probably about as worthless as the posers of mill valley or strawberry or sausalito or...

Granted, anyone who would buy a POS/mold generator with a slab foundation would have to be nuts, but at least in this neighborhood, you won't have to lock your doors when you leave the house (because you spent so much money that you don't have any cash for furnishings - who wants to steal a bunch of top ramen boxes and bean bag chairs anyway?).

I agree. IMO much of south Marin is now "uninhabitable".

Marinite-

I thought you were a Mill Valley resident? If so, do you feel that your neighborhood is uninhabitable?

I will say one thing for the poor end of the county (Novato) where I dwell: it may look like crappy 60s tract home suburbia with SUV's in each driveway, but I must say it is the only place in Marin where people actually say "hi" to you on the hiking trails. And on my street, we have a "Beer Friday" in a different garage on the street every month -- and my neighbors have keys to my house, etc., etc. But that commute to the city is a killer...

The more I see these POS sites, the more convinced I am that RE is heading for a tank from which it will NEVER recover.

Not in our lifetimes, not in our childrens' lifetimes.
