07/21/09 Boating access! 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, keeping  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.

The good deal today is in the Third Ward in a great, cat friendly building right on the Milwaukee River that even includes boat slip and pier access. Just reduced to $194,900, this is a great price for the area, especially considering all the included amenities.
