Novato Possibilities

Wonderful starter home or great opportunity! 2 bed 1 bath original home with detached garage close to downtown novato. Home boasts original charm throughout, with room to grow comfortably. Charming landscaping, mature trees and shady covered porch are only part of what makes this home shine. Home sits on a huge, level downtown lot, on a quiet street, with the possibility for development or a granny unit. The possibilities are endless!!
"Starter home", "charm", "possibilities" -- all realtor buzzwords for "POS". This thing definately does not "shine" unless buyers are willing to lower their standards of what constitutes a home. At 2 br 1 ba, 980 sq ft, built in 1951, no "lifestyle upgrades" at all, and asking $599,000 it's a true POS.

This has all the charm of Cold War-era military housing.

That's because it probably is. Novato used to be a big military town, due to the presence of Hamilton AFB. I know - my dad was an enlisted guy at Hamilton in the 50's, and I grew up in a house very similar to this.

I wish he were still alive, so he could see what type of insanity is going on here...

It's bad enough we have to live through this insanity of greed. But to wish it on our parents?!

They should call it a "lazy man's special". Tired of maintaining the lawn? Just cover it up with a few bags of mulch. Oh, and are the sellers going to take that plastic Wal-Mart chair with them or does that come with the shady covered porch? Speaking of the porch, is it concrete so I can stub out my Marlboros on it as I sit in my Wal-Mart chair and drink beer?
