Sure, we've mocked listings before that tended to overreach. We don't have a high tolerance for the overstated verbal flourishes you often find in listings. But in the case of this Encino condo, brevity is not the soul of wit. Here's the whole description from the listing: "The is a [sic] very nice condo. All remodeled." Well, thanks for that helpful information! It's also frightening that this is the best, and only, picture of the one bedroom, one bath condo. And the sales history is also suspicious. The place was first sold in 1991 for $125,000, then again in 1995 for $90,000, in 1996 for $62,000, in 2002 for $4,000, in 2005 for $5,000, then again in 2007 for a whopping $613,636. WTF? Seriously, WTF? The sales history has now reduced our ability to comment coherently. And yes, it seems to be passing back and forth among the same few owners. Today's listing price: $195,000.
