Yet another reason not to use Redfin - this listing was actually SOLD by another agent earlier this month! This guy (Charlie) is not the listing agent and the data still shows as an active listing on the Redfin site.

The 'real' listing agent did a great job on the write-up though - as well as the photos, John!

Not sure what you are asking here John, but do find what Debe said disturbing that redfin allows hucksters to sell properties that they may not own or have a listing for. 

Is redfin the new craigslist for foreign scammers?

I think perhaps many real estate agents are now educated better to the needs of the buying public. the description leaves no doubt that this home has an ADU.

 I was confused when I first read the question this morning -- I thought it was sleep deprivation -- now, reading some of the answers I'm even more clueless.

Clueless is not typically a trait I identify with.    

I kinda feel like I'm watching a foreign langauge film(in Esperanto) and there's no sub-titles.  Maybe an adult beverage will clear up things or bring clarity to the situation.  It's Happy Hour somewhere all the time, right?

Well, seems Dede got a bit inside story on this listing. I'm not a fan of Redfin...

Wow, sounds like my dream house, haha: ''ideal for a vegetable garden option for endless fruit trees or maybe even a vineyard. Let your imagination soar.''

In our area one needs to offer $2+ Mil for a modest 950sf cottage on 4000sf. Too close to Facebook headquarter.

Sorry, rejected not high enough. Try more

I guess I missed the point of the post. Based on other comments, I am under the impression this listing was sold recently but another agent is now actively marketing it. If that's the case, I assume there is a way to report them for ethics violations?

Ha! Well, I'm certainly glad this Q has engaged a few of you and I was indeed surprised to read so many diverse answers. Not one person picked up on what the message was really referring to and I don't have time to answer all the other questions albeit several were very interesting, informative and even a bit humorous.
