They're still out there
Dellusional sellers, you'd think by now that no one would try for peak pricing with a new listing. But, you would be wrong! Those ridiculous listings are harder to find these days, but they still appear and far too often too.
1592 El Paso Dr in Norco Hills is one such listing that hit the market this weekend. The home is a 4430 sq/ft, 4 bedroom/3.5 bath mini mansion. It does have all the bells and whistles. It's got the rock pool, a basketball court, a built in bbq, fancy stone work, pergraniteel kitchen and a multitude of other nicities. Two years ago all those upgrades would have fetched top dollar. But today they really don't mean much. The fancy pool is now just added maintenace and the rest of the stuff is just fluff, lipstick on a pig. The home was built in 2001 and sold new for $503k. I remember looking at the models for these homes. The floorplans were a bit funky. But, I digress.... back to the post. So whether due to job loss or unaffordable payments the owner has placed his dream castle on the market for the laughable price of $1.1 Million!. Yes that's right, there are still people smoking the dream pipe. There are still agents so desperate for a listing that they will clutter up the MLS with garbage like this. I'm not a big fan of Zillow, but in this case I think Zillow has the price about right. The Zestimate is $570k.
1.1 million.....paaaa leaze
The realtard states that the pictures sadly understate the home. He's not kidding. Not a single one is in focus, even the outdoor shots are blurry. He probably laughed so hard when the told him the asking price that he got spit on the camera lens. Either that or he took them with his cell phone. How hard is taking a picture these days with all the point and shoot cameras on the market. It's almost idiot proof. Yet again though, we are supplied proof that idiots can find a way to screw up the unskrewupable (that's a new word I just made up!).
