well its not like what you are thinking. you walk in to the area and the back main wall is chalk board. inside the pantry and the landry roiom wall are not. i guess its more an accent wall. and its usually covered up with drawings and such. it doesnt look like **** like the pic in this thread

Holy heck...$800/sq ft?!? I'm literally OTL since I live in the burbs, but is stuff in town really going for that much?

And the interior of that house...there are no words.

No it's not...at all. River Oaks is like 450 - 600/ft. And that sure as hell isn't River Oaks. And it's awful.

And I thought the place down the street from me in the Heights was overpriced for $500/ sq ft and no garage.

I'll take a wild guess that the house will be sitting for a long while at that price (and any price in that vicinity).

It's only about 4 times higher than it should be. I don't know if anyone who could afford the land would want that house...so it's probably just worth lot value.

List it sky high, after a few months knock off half of the price, some sucker swoops in to buy said $4MM house at half price, then profit?

Someone should email the listing agent and tell her the house is located in Houston, TX and not "The Heights, Tx." God I hate realtors that have no brains. It's not in the Heights.

I guess the thought is that someone who has $4M to spend on a home won't know the difference and will think it's "The Heights" just because she says so. Not to mention the fact that there's not a single home in the actual Heights listed for anything near that. Or worth it, for that matter.

You can list a house for whatever you like. Why someone would waste their time? I have no idea.

Nearly every time I comp a home, I'll find one or two homes listed for 30% or more above market and just sitting there. I guess they're hoping to find a fool with cash. Maybe it's just a way to get some attention for the listing agent. Reading this ladies bio, she doesn't seem terribly sharp.

Maybe the real estate agents enjoy being message board fodder for their overpriced listings?

if she knew what the word "fodder" meant, I would doubt it.

Haha! There are always some if those in every profession. It just seems in real estate there might be a few extra.

I know a few "accountants" I wouldn't trust accounting for a lemonade stand.

probably an off the market sale. People spending that kind of money don't want HAR to know what they paid.

Were you interested Ducks? I bet if you hired Diggity and yall made a cash offer of 3.75M, they'd have to think really hard about it. Might be able to get it done for 3.8 or so.

Looking through the listings in my area (always looking at what houses are being priced at, and what is moving- hoping to sell when we can)

This is quite possibly one of the most awkward houses I have seen. It is listed at $279,000, at $133/ft, most houses are going around $90/ foot or less.

Just a few teasers


This carpet flows through the dining room as well



Living room/Breakfast nook I suppose



Who doesnt like to face each other at the foot of the bed



I think they may be considering this as a full bath



Massage parlor?

I fully expected to see a swing in the bedroom (and was kinda disappointed...)

so 1st- what is with the swing?
2nd- what is with all the built ins?
3rd- that is quite possibly the ugliest nursery I have ever seen.
4th - the couch in the nursery, I had one just like that in college. Mine was not that clean
5th- I know you cant "stage" common areas in a community, but at least crop out the broken rusty pipe in the tennis court picture.

A horse stable is to the rear of the nearly 1/2 acre lot. Yes, horses are allowed on this property (possible AG exemption?).

Maybe a horse garage? Miniature horse ag exemption, like for Lil' Sebastian?
