Hello Elaine...Unfortunately, it is common for companies like RealtyTrac to show listings, such as the one you are asking about, at prices that are very unrealistic, in the hopes that you will subscibe (at a cost) to their service. The only active listing on Starboard is at 571 Starboard. It is a three bedroom listed for $1,095,000. There is a pending sale of a four bedroom home at 501 Starboard, San Mateo. The list price is $672,500. It is not a foreclosure. The last closed sale on Starboard was in 2/09. It was a three bedroom, two bath and sold for $750,000. As you can see for the recent activity on Starboard, it is not likely that there is a three bedroom, two bath home for sale for $259,000.
The very best way to find what is really listed for sale is to talk to a real estate agent. An agent can give you the latest information on any neighborhood, whether the homes for sale are foreclosures, short sales or not. The best thing about working with an agent is that there is no cost and you will get accurate information..
Best of luck.

I am not sure which unit this is, but it will not be the asking price.The amount could be a second mortgage in default. 501 Starboard Dr, San Mateo which is a 4 bed/2.5bath 1860sqft home is currently pending. The asking price was $ 672,500. I believe it sold for a little under that which is a fantastic price. I saw the unit...beautiful!
