San Anselmo Haunted House

$899,000 and this 1904 "haunted house" in San Anselmo could be yours. Now, just imagine how much a real house in Marin would cost you; you know, one you could actually live in. People, get a clue already. Don't be fools. Don't listen to the fork-tongued realtor's salesman-speak. That seemingly seductive and flattering smooth-talk is designed to separate a fool from his money. Don't be that fool (there are enough here). Thanks to the reader who sent in this "find".

Actually, if it *was* a haunted house, you could use that as an investment opportunity. Alas, this merely looks like one, and has no such marketable value.

..realtor should mention that this "property is great for those work-at-home types as it has a large, open, breezy office." (Note the file cabinets on the front porch)...

As seen in the listing:
"not for the faint of heart"
Agreed. There's little value in that structure; I'm sure it's riddled with mold and termites. That's basically $900K for .2 acres.

Plus whatever it costs to raze the place and clear out the debris. Plus the cost of a new structure.

Incredibly, this place is already in escrow.

This has sold according to Vision RE on June 20.

LP: $799k
SP: $819k

This one truly blows my mind (and my mind is not easily blown).
