"First time buyer's [sic] don't delay!"
"First time buyers" = People born yesterday.
"don't delay" = Because if you took the time to open a newspaper or talk to just about anybody, you would change your mind about buying this house.
"Great opportunity to buy in sherman oaks [sic]."
"Great opportunity" = This is literally true, it is a great opportunity (if you are the seller and you can find a big enough sucker).
"This fashion square [sic] traditional home offers original charm & more."
"original charm" = No improvements.
"charm & more" = No improvements.
"Great for owner user [sic] to add & build home."
Okay, I have no idea what an "owner user" is, but I can tell you that "add & build home" means you will have to tear down this home and start from scratch building yours.
Without further ado, I give you:
(MLS #: F1757259 )
Full Baths: 1

You read that correctly. This house is $869/sq.ft. despite the fact that it has one bathroom and it is the same size as an average one bedroom apartment. It has no view. It is not close to the beach and it is not in the hills. Finally, it does not appear to have undergone any improvements since it sold at the peak of the market for $650k. At the peak of the market!
Sweet fancy Moses. What are they thinking?
UPDATE: An eagle-eyed reader points out that this house is actually a McMansion now. Here's the current listing. But I stand by my position that this is the WORST listing ever. The listing photo is of the original house. The list price is not for the last sale (which was $650k) and it is not the currently offered price ($1.3M). So what the hell? And will anybody even remotely consider paying over a million dollars for a 5,900 sq. ft. lot that's Van Nuys adjacent?
