The owner tried to rent this property for $4,000 a month in February, 2006. See the following link:

The buyer went into default on 8/7/2006.

I think this is just the start of a long and painful slide down. The people that were bragging non-stop about all their real estate exploits will be humbled.

Looks like the place is currently for rent:

I called the property manager this morning. They are offering a month-to-month lease @ $3995/month. For this 'discounted' lease amount they expect the tenant to:
1. show the property to potential buyers as needed AND
2. move out when a buyer is found.

Who would be dumb enough to signup for a lease program like that???

This property lost about $1000 per day.

$1000 per day does not include monthly payments made by owner. Couple that with the fact this property is in default, and this owner is much, much poorer than he / she was just 10 months ago.

Who would be dumb enough to think you could buy a house like this and lease it out short-term for $4,000 a month?

Zillow values this house for $669K.

Scripps Ranch is getting hit pretty bad. I just submitted another property that went pending. Looks like a good size loss in a little over six months.

How can Zillow estimate the value of a property ~ 40% over the sale price within two months?

I'm not a big fan of Zillow, I don't think you can easily calculate the value of a property and that's pretty obvious as whenever I see their numbers they don't come very close.
