1283 Starlit Drive - Another Member of the Laguna Beach Desperate Flipper's Club

Bluebird Canyon is a nice part of Laguna Beach. 1283 Starlit Drive is located well inside the canyon and was just listed. Too bad that it is a just finished remodel that has hit the market waaaaay tooooo late.

Purchased for $1,100,000 in early 2007 before the bottom dropped out, the asking price is now a hefty $199,000 more, totaling out at $1,299,000.

The listing comes right out of the box with a desperate plea: "Seller will carry!! Beautiful home remodeled, 4bed 1 bed converted to family room /office. 2 full bath one story,shows very well,great for large family or roomates. Has seperate entrances. Wood floors, newer carpet and tile,ceiling have been scraped,formal dinning room, fireplace in living room. Many fruit trees in yard, very private. Open floor plan. Please call listing agent for special financing detail. "

So let me get this straight. I should pay $200,000 more in a DOWN market for some wood floors and scraped popcorn ceilings??????? The listing photos DO NOT show the kitchen, so I'm wondering if the old kitchen is in this minimal remodel. But sure, I'll pay the listing price anyway - because the "Seller will carry". Easy loans just like the good old days means I don't care what the purchase price is. Let the good times roll!!! Yeeee-haaaaah! Booooo YAAAAA!!!! Sign me up!!!!!!

Seriously. I'm wondering when the $900K offer comes in.............
