And don't forget - those ghetto houses are priced at $199K while we're in the middle of a housing bust. A year or two ago, they would have been at least $299K.

My suspicion is that someone in the loop on this forclosure found some neighborhood kids and gaven them $50 and a case of beer and said "Go have a paint party." Easy way to get the bank to sell at a deep discount to a friend of this "person in the know." Besides the art work I din't notice much other damage (like broken windows, burned flooring, missing fixtures, etc.) that you often find in these kinds of properties.

The second home I posted had an identical one sell for 349k a year and a half ago. Good 'ol Long Beach.

$200,000? Ha ha! If you would consider a 1 bedroom condo in a somewhat ok area, then maybe.... It's depressing, I go back and forth on moving out of California. But I am a California girl, and I don't like cold weather. But if I continue to live here, I will probably never buy a home. (too expensive).
Good luck!
