Agent Gave This Listing a Hand

12712 Fairgrove Ave., Baldwin Park, CA 91706

Best I can tell, these are photos of someone’s computer screen. The clicking hand computer pointer is sort of a giveaway.

Very low quality photos. Of very low quality photos.

  1. Really? Really?! So maybe this place is better than anything folks in a 3rd world country could ever hope to live in. But what’s the point of them bothering to come here if we’re still going to try to soak them for $320K for 744sqft of 1949 house? It’s obvious that whoever stands to make a commission off this sale doesn’t care enough to do anything to earn it. About the only people who might are the ones who came up with the predatory loan scam. You know, the one that sank our whole damn country into the economic toilet?

    Sigh… at least some of this block is in decent shape, looking like they’ve had lots of improvements and upkeep since the area was first constructed. Take a look at 12742 Fairgrove. Yellow house, spiral columns, nice landscaping and fence, even a good looking boat in the drive. If the wart that is this listing can command $320K, I wonder how much 12742 would go for. :\

  2. When the realtor – who presumably would expect to be paid for the effort – won’t physically go near the place, I reckon the rest of us should take warning, eh?

    @anodean: I noted that it does seem to be in East L.A. ‘Nuff said.

  4. “Better than anything folks in a Third World country could hope to live in.” Given the quality of the photography, I’m surprised that line wasn’t in the listing.

    I got paid cash for this house. I grew up there. It had a in ground swimmimg pool. There was tons of citrus and nuts trees. A Korean family outbid everyone paid me cash and off I went. Nice new home in Oregon on the 101 Hwy. They will never get close to what they are asking for it. The place was falling down. They brought they’re Mother to see it and she told them don’t do it. Hahaa, too late. I took the money and split. It was such a shady deal. The realtor and the buyers got screwed. Not me. I got that fire trap off my back!

  6. @Rebecca Hoffman: …and then, in an unfathomable display of mysterious Asian Feng Shui stars, their purchase of the property (including the act of liberating you from it), spectacularly changed their luck for the better. A fortune they thought lost was restored to them, their alienated siblings came home, every holiday dinner tasted better than the last…and at last, in the process of time (and without their ever having lived in the awful place, ick!), the signs in the stars have moved them to pass on the Good Luck Bad Look House so that the same transaction may serve another.

    Nice to see you, Rebecca. Welcome! :D
