No Place to Sleep in Lagunitas -- Update

The realtor removed the picture that I used in "No Place to Sleep in Lagunitas"; the one with the "No Trespassing" sign hanging from the rope across the "driveway". It was replaced with these winners. LOL! I'll never understand the mind of a Marin realtor.

It's still asking $290,000. As you might imagine, this is the cheapest listing in all of Marin as far as I have seen.

Oh, but if only this was a joke. But the real joke is that there are people who buy these things for these insane prices.

LOL. Whenever something seems so impossible it probably is.. Why would the agent even take these pictures? That question leads me to believe some kind of conspiracy.

Those are the kinds of windows that faces look out of *shudder*

Screw the $290,000, what this place needs is a can of gasoline and a Zippo. Presto - instant improvement! (Not that we advocate such things, mind you...)

I've seen treehouses closer to code than that POS.

We need to fetch the "Holy Hand-grenade of Antioch" for this one.

BTW, although the square footage is generous, check out this place just down the road from my SA rental. I was wondering what was happening here. It is the Haunted House of Laurel Avenue. A pile of rotten wood yours for $900k.

rejunkie -

That's funny; I was just sent that listing from a reader. I was just about to "ffeature" it.

If this "home" had a theme song, it would involve a lot of banjo.

WoW! You've listed a lot of POSs, some of them actually viable aside from price, but this is the first one that screams "Deliverance". Where's the albino kid playing banjo? Man, it's straight outta Appalachia with a Cali price tag. The shame! The ignomy!

You could have the the Mill Valley store Maison Reve stage it with their equally distressed furniture (think flower pot shoved through wicker chair picked up at a dump site and priced at $500) and flip it for tidy profit!
