06/29/09 Good Deal if you want a lot of space!

When we find a good deal on a condo we will highlight it here. This will be a unit, sometimes more than one, that we consider to offer special value based on a price change, added amenities, or anything else that makes the unit stand out from the rest.

There is some uncertainty about the market but there are also incentives for buying now. Interest rates are still at historic lows. There is a good initial selection of units across all price ranges, plus motivated sellers. The $8,000 first time buyer tax credit can now also be used as part of a down payment. To qualify for the tax credit, closing must occur before Dec.1 of this year. Plan ahead, keepingĀ  in mind that a dedicated search for the most appropriate condo can take time and that financial institutions take months to finalize some deals, after an accepted offer and before closing.20090603135001268983000000-o1

There are some real advantages to widening a condo search beyond the downtown area, if that is an option for you, because typically your dollar buys more space and more amenities. If space is what you seek, consider this exceptional value, newly listed at $179,900 at Nicolet Parc in Glendale, about a fifteen minute (by car) commute from downtown and only minutes to the new Bayshore Town Center. A newer construction, NE corner, private front entry townhouse with 2 car attached garage offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths plus a full basement! The unit has vaulted ceilings, a skylight, all new carpeting throughout, a larger, semi-enclosed balcony, and is cat-friendly.
