Penthouse Living  At University Gardens

University Gardens

University Gardens

Located at 951 S. 12th Street #316, this top floor condo has a captivating spacious feel. With high vaulted ceilings, a balcony surrounded with tall trees, a bathroom to die for, and a wonderfully maintained complex, unit #316 has generated a fantastic amount of interest. We’ll be reviewing offers at the end of day today and are excited for our seller to be in contract with the right buyer very soon. This market has proven to be quite competitive and looks as though it may continue to be as long as interest rates remain low. The thing that has changed is that inventory has about doubled since the beginning of the year, although still relatively low.

Interested in what we do to expose a home as much as possible to the market? Please don’t hesitate to contact me to find out the strategies we use to make sure you’re happy with the process and the outcome.

Also, I love discussing the market with potential buyers, sellers, and/or anyone who’s got an opinion on the real estate market. Feel free to shoot me an email or better yet, just give me a call. I hope spring is treating you all well!

30 E. Julian Street: The Plaza

Now In Litigation

Currently In Litigation

The Plaza located at 30 E. Julian Street is in pending litigation. This began roughly at the end of April or beginning of May of this year and came as a bit of a surprise. For home buyers as well as home owners, it’s important to know what it means when a condo complex is in pending litigation. Those who live in condo complexes will typically have more knowledge about this subject than someone such as a first-time home buyer.  However, this is not to say that all condo owners know what “pending litigation” actually means and how it affects them. After reading this post, my goal is that all of you will have an increase in awareness on the subject.

Homeowners Looking To Sell And Buyers Looking To Buy

The first thing you must find out as a homeowner is if your complex is “condominium-owned” or if it’s owned as a “planned unit development.” One thing to remember as a homeowner of a unit that’s within a complex in litigation is that prospective buyers could be potentially concerned after they accumulate this knowledge. When a complex is in pending litigation, it means that Read the rest of this entry »
