The Gainesville condominium real estate market continues to be good for buyers. The biggest obstacle for condominium sales is a buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Each condominium complex will be analyzed by the mortgage lender & underwriters for loan approval. Call me to find out which condo complexes will qualify for FHA Financing. Your lender will want to know if the condominium you are interested in is a “true condo” or a PUD (Planned Unit Development).
