Just In Case You Were Wondering

I was out in west Marin the other day and drove past the boat-garage-pretending-to-be-a-desirable-Marin-abode. It's still for sale. I last blogged it in a post entitled Waiting for Mr. Market to Catch Up to Their Marin Wishing Prices. Apparently, the sellers are still waiting for a Mr. Right buyer to come along "with a bucket of money and a box of stupid".

I first blogged this POS back in November, 2005. So that makes its real DOM something in the neighborhood of 1130 days (give or take). They are currently asking the bubblicious, staggering price of $525K for this 1br, 1ba, 543 ft^2 boat garage (but to put things in to their proper context, $795K was the highest, delusional listing price I've seen for this POS). Three cheers for Marin seller obstinacy, wishful thinking, and denial!
