On the Market: Half-Truths on Ankeny Street

Where's Ankeny Street? Yeah, us too. Facts first: 110 Ankeny Street is listed as a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1,302 square foot home in Visitacion Valley. And it costs $799,000. $706 per. Could be worse, sure— even in V.V. Let's read deeper into this listing: This home was originally built as a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom above a two-car garage. Now, however, the owners have sealed off the garage so that the home actually features 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, two kitchens, and an office. "Legality of these rooms may not be warranted." So, in other words, we've got an illegal inlaw unit. Which means that an enterprising homeowner could, conceivably, risk renting out the aforementioned unit— or deal with the huge hassle of bringing a house up to code while wrangling a rather horrific interior at the same time. Worth the hassle?
