Wow - that is sad! I would not even want a free home in the "heart of Escondido".
As funny as this is, it's also fairly depressing. This is symbolic of how disgustingly wasteful and unsustainable our national consumer culture has become.
On a lighter note, wow am I glad I waited (and am still waiting) to buy a house. Sooner or later I'll be able to get one free with mail in rebate.
Enigma, Don't be an elitist. I was born and raised in San Diego, and most of Escondido isn't that bad. If people can live in Temecula, Murietta and other inland areas, they can live in Escondido. Regarding the deal, Michael Crew is well respected local builder, who is doing anything to try and get rid of inventory. Remember, you have to buy a $1.6+M home, to get a smaller home.
What!! Buy one get one free !??!what, so your first home can be your main home and your second home is a "commuter" home? How is this an advertising strategy? This is insane. Giving away a second home with the purchase of a 1.6M home.... Man, that is a depressingly sad statement on the state of housing oversupply.
If you can tell me how much copper pipes and copper wiring is in the house I can tell you what it is worth. Or does that formula only work in Detroit?
Abitare -It applies to Cleveland as well ,anywhere else not as much. :-)
It's worth even LESS if there are squatters on your property....at least that's what astry says...
