    I think I'll hold off on selling my place and moving there for a little bit...

    I first thought that if you can afford a $1.3M house, you can afford $3500 HOA. That's like 0.3% of the houses value. If I had to pay the same, it'd be $600 month. I would be the guy who refuses to pay.

    Wow!

    Glad you did OK though man. Were you evacuated during the water drops, or did you have any warning?

    Crazy how hard that water comes down, and how it doesn't seem to help much, or for very long. Better than nothing, I'm sure. Way better than.

    I don't live there. My Dad built it in the late 40s for a weekend place when it was the boonies. It was a 2 hour drive back then. Today it takes me 20 minutes to get there and there are houses all around the area.

    I wonder if that double-wide is in the neighborhood that a bunch of actors (such as James Garner) started back in the late Fifties or early Sixties. It was right on the PCH, and apparently just a block or two from where The Rockford Files filmed the beach scenes.

    What's up with the price history? It's doubled in value in 3 years.

    There's a much clearer view now, and fewer neighbors.

    All in you're at about $13.5K per month for a $1.3M house. For that you could get a house valued at about $1.7M and not have to deal with the inevitable HOA increase.

    I think they painted it and added that cool shed out front.

    I would trade losing some gutters rather than losing the house and you're right the water and foscheck pack's a wallop, they hit my house and shop at the ranch in Simi Valley in the early 2000's.

    Not really. It's been listed for sale several times, and the asking price has doubled in three years, but it hasn't sold at any of those prices ... probably because they're asking way more than its value.

    I think they are trying to gouge the multi-millionaires who lost their homes to the fire. I saw an over priced condo in the area that suggested the new owner could still live in Malibu while they rebuilt their home.
    So thoughtful.
