In an effort to offer information on the condo real estate market in the Gainesville Fl area, I thought I give an example of a recent sale in the area.
Yesterday, one of our listings in the Cricket Club Condominium complex in SW Gainesville closed. It was a new listing on February 3rd of this month. The seller was an investor and wanting it priced to move quickly. We had a handyman do some minor repairs that we knew might be an issue for any future buyer inspection, the carpets were professionally cleaned, and a cleaning service put the final touches on this unit.
This was an end unit, 3 bedrooms with 2.5 baths, and 1,384 sq ft. This townhouse had covered assigned parking as well. The list price was $ 65,900, and was not a short sale or foreclosure.
It closed on 2/28/12 with a cash buyer (also an investor) for $ 60,000. 19 Days from List to Close!
This is a good summary of the condo market in the Gainesville area.
- Motivated Seller with Competitive List Price
- Priced Right – Location is Good – Good Condition & Move In Ready
- Buyer with the ability to pay Cash
- Investment buyers getting good purchase prices for future rental income
