 !  under asking price ... at the height of the housing boom?!?

yah. that's what i did. not really a big deal, you'd think, but asking prices for houses i looked at were $379,000 and up ... and it wasn't unusual to see a house sell for 20-40% above the asking price!


henry's home, from the front

so here it is ... exactly as i purchased it (see the sign in the upper right hand window? that's the "FOR SALE" sign ... ). a modest home by san francisco standards (notice it's not a victorian or a mansion), it has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (not bad since it's only me living there!)

there's a large-ish backyard (according to san francisco standards), and the entire downstairs is unmodified ... so that garage door you see leads to a garage that runs all the way to the back of the house (most of the homes in the neighborhood have had these spaces turned into "in-law" apartments that look pretty awful). since i don't drive a car, my garage has become the storage dump for all my friends ...

projects on the project list (since i don't have lots of cash at the moment) include a new deck, hot tub, landscaping, and new windows!

 !  stuff
see henry's "old" web site!
follow this link to see henry's old website. it was professionally designed, and (as you can tell) professionally neglected by yours truly. some filesystem damage a long time ago broke some of the images, and i unfortunately didn't have backups :(
