Totally redone - 32 years ago!

Solid house in quiet area. 2 bdrm & den up. 2 bdrm suite down. Extra large 8'6"x 19' workshop in garage, nice fenced backyard for BBQ. House was totally redone i n 1974. 8-year old roof. Move-in condition. Close to everything.

V607874 $525,000

I love the talk-up in this blurb. The house was totally redone in 1974 (and it cost them $5k to do that, I'd bet), so it's totally modernized, fuel efficient, and man - those avocado appliances are in now! Retro y'know. The pepper-mill patterned wallpaper is catchy too, and the flocked wallpaper in the living room is stunning. Just bring yer plastic-sheathed settee, and yer all set.

And the extra-large workshop - (most are only 7'9"x18.5') - runs the length of the garage, and you can park the Edsel in the other side of this spacious hybrid structure. Vendor will throw in a retro game of Twister, a Bee Gees record, and a Spirograph for the kiddies as an incentive.

The roof is only 8 years old too (previous owners did it).

All this makes it worth it. Especially when the Olympics come. Don't worry about property taxes heading through that 8 year old roof though, you can just flip it for $600k in the spring - when things continue to appreciate 20% plus per year.

Hey Rob C. Do you think I could make a living ghost writing these blurbs?
