When you begin to understand that many of the Peninsula home prices being advertised aren't real (meaning the owner would never sell for their asking price), then this becomes less surprising. Pricing low to create a frenzy and frustrate many would-be buyers is more common here than anywhere I've ever seen.

If the home sold for $782K above the 6mo comparable prices in that neighborhood, then that would be an interesting story.

Nothing to see here.

It's interesting that they show both a listing agent and a buyer's agent. Does that mean you have to use the buyer agent of their choice? What a scam.

They just list who the buyer's agent was in the transaction for records. Fortunately there's two different companies shown for buyer and seller agents

$2.4M for this crapbox (on a 13,000ft2 lot) in Sunnyvale? Delusional buyer. This must be the peak.

They'll scrape it and throw up three 1/2 bedroom homes with combined kitchen/shower/shitter and sell them for $3 million each.

By 2020 it will be a $4 million house. Just wait and see.

You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
