2010/06/14 My house, for sale
π 2010-06-14 00:00 in Public
This replaces my older post about my house going for sale. I had put it couple of years renting it. I never quite wanted to be a landlord but the 2 year wait allowed for the market badness to flush itself somewhat.
Unfortunately, even 2 years later the market has barely recovered and it's really cheap considering it used to be valued $700k, but for tax reasons and not wanting to manage/landlord a house any longer, I decided to put it for sale after my last tenants just left.

I hadn't gotten around to post pictures of my house after it had been staged, so it's done now.

Chen-Chen really did a fantastic job taking the place over and getting it ready for selling in a record time.

A few are picked here:











The virtual tour is sweet (I recommend that for as long as it's up):

and the MLS listing for whatever it's up too: http://www.mlslistings.com/Default.aspx?pp=-1&pg=0&idx=1&l=19$978330$RES

But for posterity, here's the youtube video made from the virtual tour and embedded in this page (this will stay forever since it's a local copy 100% served from my server, gotta be careful with WEB 2.0 nowadays):


After the original post, 2 weeks later, we got several offers and I'm currently in contract with an old couple downgrading from a more expensive house in Palo Alto. I'm kind of relying on their house closing to happen for them to close with me, but they offered more than other folks as a way to make up for it, so I agreed to take the slightly extra risk.
