"I did the math. The previous owners lost $1000 per day."

Warms the cockles of my heart to see money redistributed thusly. Reminds me of my favorite Barry White song, "My Murst, My Last,My Everything"

Unless they paid all-cash, your comment "the previous owners lost $1000 a day" is not literally true, even if it is true from an accounting perspective. Someone else took much (most?) of the loss when the loan soured.

s said...

Nah, the lender lost $1000 per day.

The previous owner lost his down payment and whatever payments he actually bothered making.

I'm far more interested in the 2003-2006 appreciation from $350K to $2.6 million. I have to assume that some serious renovations were undertaken to justify that increase.

Rob Dawg said...

Of course you are correct. The actual loses are spread around, downpayment, lost opportunity costs, a send trust deed most likely.

Mortgage fraud nets man 17-year prison sentence

A Haitian man was sentenced Monday to nearly 17 years in prison for leading a mortgage fraud scheme in Phoenix that authorities say cost banks about $9.5 million.

Federal prosecutors say 51-year-old Mario G. Bernadel was convicted last September on 19 counts related to mortgage fraud, including mail, wire and bank fraud plus transactional money laundering.

Authorities say Bernadel led a two-year conspiracy involving the purchase of 37 properties using fraudulent loan documents and receiving cash back at closing. They say the scheme from December 2005 through March 2007.

@ NoobGoldberg - Notice the home was constructed in 2006. $350k was for the lot.

Rob Dawg said...

Notice also that 13 years of 1.2% appreciation on the raw land prior.

Lost Cause said...

Wow! What a nice house! If I were Steve Jobs, I would tear it down.

@picosec

Ahhh, thanks picosec. I obviously did not notice that!

By June 2006 the market for million dollar homes was really slowing. Whoever got this thing sold in June at this price was really fortunate.

Mike said...

Dawg, thought you would dig this. Check out listing price history.

Rancho Las Flores. .. a magical place! (Ya, magical like Fantasyland)

The one weird thing with that house is that the wall around it is pretty low in areas so it is not as private as it looks in the aerial view.

I suppose they had priced it for development if you could extend San Mateo through the property. But I heard that they could not do that for some reason. Otherwise you could fit 8 nice lots there.

Mike said...

w, interesting observation. I hadn't noticed that. Now that I look, San Mateo is the only street that is broken like that that has the same name north and south of that property. Good eye :) That property has gone down from its original listing price by over $17k per day. Must suck for the property owners to realize they are at least $800k poorer than they thought they were at the end of Jan ;-)

You have to admit that as spectator sport Ventura County is hard to beat.

Serin gets trolled. Big time.

Girl named "Holly" comes onto him through Facebook -- gets him to take compromising photos -- girl turns out to be a Hater, probably a CampIdiot poster. Sweet.

Rob Dawg said...

Just disturbing. Still stupid after all these years.

JP said...

What's the deal with "Financial information: Deposit $3"

Rob Dawg said...

I'm not sure but I think it means 3% deposit for consideration.

Wasn't that a Paul Simon song? :)
