Wow! that place is gorgeous. But I couldn't live there. Why would anyone want to live where there's nowhere for little people to write on the wall with crayons? You can't slide down the bannister and it's a freakin' condo - no yard.
But it's gorgeous enough for the real elliemae clampett to love, i guess.
Lots of upgrades, but definitely not my style. Too gaudy. And I don't like gated communities with a $400 HOA either.
I'm not sure this fits the true description of a condo. More like a townhouse, but for loan purposes, have to describe it as such.
We paid $800K for a townhouse in July. We wanted to stay in the South Bay (LA) and we could either get a 1400-1500 sq foot mid century place with a 5000 sq foot lot away from the ocean, or a townhouse with a tiny yard, but walking distance to the beach. It's truly a lifestyle decision. Sometimes I wish for the yard (and its accompanying yard care headaches), but our neighborhood is great and we live in one of the least expensive places on the block.
As for the plasma mounted above the fireplace, we did the same. At first it was an adjustment, but from 12 feet out, it's no big deal. (and we paid $1500 at costco 5 years ago for our 50 inch).

You rich people, listen! Cry and be very sad because of the troubles that are coming to you.2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes have been eaten by moths.3 Your gold and silver have rusted, and that rust will be a proof that you were wrong *(see: "by the time your dead"). It will eat your bodies like fire. You saved your treasure for the last days.4 The pay you did not give the workers who mowed your fields cries out against you, and the cries of the workers have been heard by the Lord All-Powerful. (See: work for nothing. Only in debt. Can't wait till I'm dead) 5 Your life on earth was full of rich living and pleasing yourselves with everything you wanted.
So the rich are screwed. *You have to wait till your dead of course. By then your loan is paid off (close to dead). It all works out. For someone...
Now heres the thing. You don't think the lenders are there when your dead. Oh they wouldn't miss that one. It's part of the deal. Theyre going to make sure you get to Wonderland. You get a complementary bible of course. Don't thank them. They printed way more than they needed. Don't ever forget those bastards can print.
You also might not be aware. That they will also finance vengence. On any people. Any act of outrage. Of course you have to provide the outrage or catalyst to precipitate any act of "Righteous" vengence. On successful "Overthrow" of any government. Or of any peoples governments. Or successful installation of a "New government" payments may be deferred for up to 3 months. The nation of Israel will be provided for any apocalyptic purpose. Or any act of religous "Righteousness" or religous "Indignation" for a small fee. Any damage to homes and commerical buildings in Israel caused by any staged apocalyptic or religious (Herein known as "Righteous") event (due to bad planning). From rockets or any other incendiary shall be the sole responibility of the borrower. All limited engagments will be financed on ballon payments. Targets will be provided at no extra charge. Nuclear targets (herein known as "The Shell") advertising will be provided at no extra charge for "The Shell". As long as religous belief in the last days and Pat Robertson exsist. Also any apocolyptic "spoofing" on the part of both parties involved in any limited engagment is subject to the "dual agency" rule. Actually I added that one. It's my fond wish they meet in the middle of a field somewhere blow each others heads off. So I don't have to hear or see their obnoxious bullshit anymore.
You're not in this year, you and your progeny will never have a chance to live indoors again!
Why are you so optimistic? I am looking at houses to buy that averaged $650-700 k in 2005 that today are at $250k. I told one agent that the asking price was way out of line with reality. They gave me the "this is a $650k house---this is the best time to buy blast of gas" and I told them--look at the sold comps! This house will sell for $210k and is on the way down to $150k! The Real-idiot reluctantly agreed that he though $210K was realistic TODAY but that he felt (30 yrs experience) we had 5 more years to go. I asked him "why try so hard to keep asking prices high?" and he replied I have to try something to keep them up---most people will think they are getting a deal. Haha ha
I can honestly see how this place would be worth more than $100/sq.ft. if it were a single family detached house since it has a nice interior. If it were a single family detached house on a decent size lot, I could imagine it being worth $400k, half of what it sold for.
But it's a freakin' condo. You share walls with noisy neighbors. It doesn't have it's own lots. Sure, it's a nice condo, a big condo, but it's not a house! $250k tops in real value.
haha the plasma is mounted 12 feet high above fire place. totally useless except to show off the 60 inch tv
Yeah, the plasma TV adds $1000 to the value of the condo. Plasma TVs are cheap. I guess realtors believe that people are dumb enough to overestimate how much the TV would cost to buy separate from the house, which you would want to do anyway to avoid paying property taxes on the TV for the rest of your life, even after the TV is gone.
Still, perhaps people are dumb enough to fall for the plasma TV trick.
We have condo's, near where I work for 60k now. They are the ones hawked for probably 120k at one time. The location though, is literally right above the interstate, down wind, only hundreds of yards away.
Nice cookie cutter condo. Seems obvious the owner has some rich blood in them.
