The Gainesville condominium real estate market continues to be good for buyers. Our market statistics for closed sales show that condo buyers are now getting mortgages for their condo purchases. 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).
Cash Buyers and Investors have excellent opportunities in the Gainesville market.
It’s Condo Buying Season in Gainesville!
