- 2569 Montgomery Street (Blairmont Associates LLC, May 2005, $23,000)
Yes, that's TWO properties there, and BOTH have been damaged by brick rustlers. They've totally destroyed the one on the right. They've also done significant damage to the left-hand building, though; note the gaping hole in the rear side wall:
As for the destroyed building, here's what it looked like before:

No price bouncing in evidence on these two, but $80,000 seems a bit inflated, even for a house that seems to have been in good repair before the brick rustlers hit it.
The destroyed house was vacant since 1996, but the intact house was occupied as recently as March 2006. Both have now been condemned for demolition. Thanks, Blairmont!
Update, August 11, 2008: 2571 was demolished in early August 2008.
