07/07/09 Good Deals close to the lake! BOTH SOLD!

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.

Here are two condos downtown with just announced price reductions, both excellent value. Each is a 2 BR/2 BA unit with underground heated parking, balcony, and in-unit laundry, in a pet friendly building.

The first, at $200K, is spacious and in a newer construction, high quality building in a great location just south of Brady and near the lake.

The second, at $225K and even larger, is in one of the more prestigious buildings along Prospect. It offers lake and marina views from the balcony and full views from the lakeside terrace plus concierge services and well-equipped workout facilities.
