The least you could do if you're going to post a zillow screenshot from my town is get one from a desirable part of town. That area sucks. Too many duplexes and parking is a nightmare.
Read again what I wrote. When I bought my house in the first half of the 90s my neighborhood "USED TO" BE PAST TENSE known as the surfer ghetto. It was not a great neighborhood when I bought here but it was affordable at the beach. Almost everyone cashed out in the early 2000s when properties like mine suddenly went from selling for under $100k to close to $500k. My 60s split level house went from being one of the nicest houses among a bunch of run down duplexes and boarded up beach houses to surrounded by brand new McBeachMansions between 2000 and 2007. Now new houses on my block built on lots half the size of mine are selling for $1.3 million. Someday I'll split my lot in two and retire.
This screen shot is more like it. See the price tags on those narrow lots? Its gone insane since the year 2000. I'm just a poor old toner salesman who stepped in some sh!t by buying at the right place at the right time almost 30 years ago.
