What a Deal in Mill Valley

Wow, marvelous mill valley for less than $700,000...Great home, great price!!
2 br 2 ba, 1104 sq ft, built in 1980. Sits practically on top of Shoreline Hwy. Asking: $699,999. If they had asked just $1 more then it would no longer be a "great price". These are truly some savvy Marin sellers.

If real estate agents were inclined to tell the truth (and I say IF) I would love to ask them: would YOU pay this much money for a house like this?

They've had their day in the sun. It's time they accepted the new reality. If they still want to make the payments on they're Mercedes S class, they need to start pricing houses according to market value... are there any agents out there listening?? anyone?... Bueller?

If you like this Shoreline POS, then how 'bout the neighbor's place... MLS no. 20633551. This is just up the road and just after Shoreline turns into Almonte, but, it's also RIGHT on the road, with cars whizzing by all day/night, and at 969,000, comes in at a whopping $703.19 per square foot. And here's the best part... you get a front row seat to all the road construction just outside your front door on Almonte until January, 2007!!! No extra charge for that, by the way. Yes, Virginia, there's a water view, just climb up on that bulldozer and stretch your neck a bit. Dinky lot size, too...

I think someone should make a bet with an RE agent that they will buy the place but if the price goes down in 1 year, they pay you $2k. If it goes up you pay them. If it stays the same no one pays no one.

I doubt any of them would bite.

Even some of these dumps have their charm, but this is basically a human storage box surrounded by asphalt. For $700K, where is any enjoyment living there? Then think about the income you'll need to live here, and whether that makes sense. If such "home" is $600K or $1M, all I see is buyer's remorse, then ample cognitive dissonance to defend your decision.

For a similar price, I think you can buy a condo/TH near Richardson bay, walking trails, and far more quiet.

This stuff is starting to piss me off.
That house is a $76,000 value at best.
We all have to wake up and smell the truth.
This situation is seriously out of whack.

Does anyone have the URL for the Marin MLS? I'm really curious to follow the sattis of a POS like this.

...can I use more acronyms! LOL
