Id lk 2 buy vwl--410 Bryant Avenue, Alameda, CA
Another giant McMansion on Bryant is for sale. This "highly sought after plan 9" was apparently "SOLD OUT" last year, and now is you chance to get another one for $9,000 more than what the other one is asking for after several price drops. Let's all jump up and down for joy. In fairness, this one has one more bedroom than 350 Bryant, so maybe it is worth the extra $9k.

It was last sold right when it was built:
The pricing strategy appears to be something along the lines of "We're not losing money on this! Let's get a pair of agents who will share a 4% commission and we can break even."

It looks great if you like huge new McMansions that look the same on tiny lots with nice, straight new sidewalks and minuscule green spaces whose personality gets brutally manicured out of them on a regular basis.
Update 8/30/09: Sold for $852,000, less than its 2004 price.
