Here is another Deal of the Week from Zach Fox at the San Diego North County Times: Turning back the clock in Vista

The featured 1,600 square feet, three-bedroom, two-bath house in Vista, CA was built in 1982.

Sold in August 1989: $165,000

Sold in August 2005: $520,000

Sold in December 2008: $100,000

Zach doesn't say, but I bet the house was trashed by the most recent owner. In general Vista is a decent area, and this is quite a round trip.
