I don’t know how I missed Real C’Ville for so long (they’ve been up since May 2008), but here they are – offering candid commentary on the market and most interestingly, different houses on the market:
This house is on pretty Oxford Place, the one-way horseshoe street that jogs off and back to lovely Oxford Road, in the Rugby area. Just by looking at the pic, and knowing the neighborhood, and realizing we’ve been in a Bubble, the price doesn’t seem to be anything to blink at. Right?
Except: What the hell is going on across the street?
We don’t know. As you drive down Oxford Place, almost immediately to your left it’s like you’re in Belmont or Woolen Mills, back in the day: there’s overgrown foliage obscuring an abandoned house and dead cars w/tags expired in 2003. The place is so abandoned that we can’t even see a number on the house–we can’t even look it up.
Candid insight on houses? Who do they think they are? FranklyMLS? The above commentary, combined with photos of the neighborhood is right in line with what buyers want when they are searching online.
One additional thought – I can understand the desire for anonymity, but why no comments?
