These days, with 'bidding wars' all too common in the 'entry-level' price range of $150,000 to $250,000, condos are an excellent alternative for first time buyers. When 700-sq ft homes are selling for $220,000 (without garages), there are 1100-sq-ft condos with insuite laundry, central air, full appliances and more.... selling for $165,000.
Currently in the south end of the city, there are 46 condos for sale in the $120,000 to $180,000 dollar range, many of which are NOT subject to the 'multiple offers' that individual homes are receiving. If you're thinking of buying your first home, take a look at some of these condos. To receive a list of available units, e-mail me at [email protected]
