What a wonderful and beautiful Southern California weekend we just had. Time for friends, picnics, and outrageous loony housing. Today we salute an 864 square foot home in Buena Park. When you think of half-a-million big ones, we usually think of majestic homes with at least enough room for two cars. But not in Southern California! After taking the kids to Knott’s Berry Farm and dropping $300 bucks on processed sugars and modified carnival rides, why not go over and purchase the above home for $511,000? This place has a marvelous 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. This place has a large backyard for picnics if you can still afford a grill after your $4,000 monthly payment. But you’ll be living in style and hey, you can even catch a glimpse of the log ride from your pad. Talk about living large.
With such a deal as is our custom here at Real Homes of Genius, let us see the previous sales data:
Sale History :
Someone made out like a bandit in 2005 and I’m not talking about the Knott’s saloon either. This person is approaching the two-year anniversary meaning they can avoid capital gains tax on this place and have a nice tax break! Money in the bank. After a 6% commission this seller is looking to score $45,340, the median salary of someone in the area. For two years this is a great investment; let us give our sub-prime lender a call. Well it seems New Century has filed bankruptcy today so we’ll need to go the conventional route should we want to purchase this home. Whoops! You mean I can rent a home in the area like this for $1,300 a month and spend the rest on unlimited rides on Supreme Scream? Not sure if the lifestyles of the rich and famous included 864 square foot pads.
Today we salute you Buena Park with our Real Homes of Genius Award.
