I screwed up!

Yes, as a matter of fact that is fake grass.


I gave away the award for the Realtard of the month already, then I found this listing.

17362 Woodentree Ln, Riverside is in the Victoria Groves tract. The home is 3198 sq/ft and has 3 bedrooms and 2.75 baths. This home appears to be owned by a realtor. The past sales look kinda fishy. I don't know what was going on with a $550k sale in July 07 and then another $635K sale in November of 07 ( I can't believe those are legit sales ). Now this tool lists his home for $875K to $925k!! Huh?

The listing is amazing. Here's the first sentence (and what a sentence it is).

WHY BUY A SHORT SALE OR A BANK REPO HOME THAT NEEDS LANDSCAPING , PAINT, CARPET , DOSENT HAVE A POOL , SPA, BUILT IN BBQ FOR THESE HOT RIVERSIDE SUMMER DAYS WHY COME HOME & THINK I WISH IT WAS ALREADY FIXED UP & DONE I'M RUNNING THIN ON CASH I WISH I HAD A POOL TO RELAX IN.

Ok Mr Realtard, here's why. Because those homes are $500K cheaper than yours!

Now on to one of the best things about this listing. There are 10 pictures of the home. Six of those are of the outside, three of them are of the front, one is the dog pen (yup, the dog pen!) and there are two of the pool. The remaining 4 are of the inside. In all four shots there is crap all over the place. 2 of the 4 pictures are of a pool table with crap on it and under it. There is one shot of an untidy kitchen and one shot of the back of the couch (of course with crap on it).

I don't understand what the point of this listing is. Most homes in that tract are listed around $130 s/f, with the low end REOs lising down near $100 s/f. This moron lists at $274 s/f (at his low end of the price range). This listing makes my head hurt......



Yes, check out the fully carpeted dog run!

Could ya maybe put some more crap on the counter? Love those builder grade cabinets too!

Ok, what is this picture supposed to show me other than that the laundry was just done and is now on the back of the couch.

I half expected to see a picture of a dirty toilet.

Um EW! Clean up your crap!

sometimes...when we need a good laugh, we drive by this house and bust a gut...not only is it fake grass, but alot of those plants and flowers in the front yard are fake also, and you can tell from several houses down...the neighbors must be soooooo glad at the thought of getting new owners who will rip that crap OUT! 875 my ASS!

I couldn't sleep under the bank of that dam. If it's a rental I'd sure have all the earthquake/flood insurance needed.
The San Andreas and a predicted
7.8'er will cause major slop over at a minimum or a breach at most.
Not to be an alarmist..but.

I heard from a business associate that Countrywide has just started contacting all Option/ARM customers and is offering them a loan modification to 5% fixed with no modification cost and is getting very little response.

That's because most people with option arms are paying the min payment that is way less than a 5% fixed rate. Most of them will never be able to afford a full payment of principal and 5% interest.

i actually have an ARM with countrywide....i have gotten more than one letter and more than one email about refi'ing with good rates. i have called and emailed, and have gotten very little feedback. when i finally got a live person, they never got back to me. so....they must not want us to refi THAT badly.

Thanks for the post :))
It is about time for something similar to Darwin Award in real estate field!

X Those were my same thoughts. However, in itself it is a very scary thing to think of the ramifications.
