Auburn Woods Townhome Real Estate

I currently live in Auburn Woods; and have sold residential real estate in the area for over 6yrs now. We currently have 7 townhomes for sale; most at very attractive prices. Does any one have any questions about these homes or about the current market here or surrounding area... Or does any current resident need information about selling their Auburn Woods home? I would be glad to help.

Hi Sdasmaju,

I can't predict for sure where prices may be a year from now, much less in 5-8 years. Anything might happen to our economy before now and then.

However, reviewing where our real estate market has been during the past 5+ years tells me that we are currently at the bottom of a price pull-back from historic highs.. In addition I am also seeing historically low interest rates. As we head out of the year, I am already seeing some prices moving back up a little. We definitely had a low bounce this past summer/fall 2009. Worst case scenario is that we get a double bounce come 2010. But by then interest rates may be higher, and government incentives (Buyer Tax Credits) may expire.

I reviewed the properties you identified above ( I assume the New listing at 143 Aberdour for $350k is the property you're interested in ) . What I would suggest to you is, if you're interested in buying either of these town homes is to view them... then if interested in either/both... conduct a thorough CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) of the properties in those 2 subdivision (Ashbury; and Inverness on the Pond)... and if need be the surrounding town home area... to make sure that you are offering a nice, low, yet acceptable-to-the-Seller price. A historically low price unit in this subdivision ought to payoff 5-8 yrs down the road with a bit of profit,,, baring any unforeseen economic disaster/

I would be glad to help you with this as a Buyer's Agent if you would like. Feel free to discuss with me in further detail at 847-934-5065

Ken, A friend lives in Auburn Woods. She's been there a few years and so far had been happy with the community. However since January water is leaking in from the roof or somewhere from the outside into the sheet rock. She has called maintenance multitudes of times. They came twice both times saying they saw no "dripping" water therefore they weren't going to do anything. Doesn't take a genius to figure out it doesn't have to be dripping into the house for there to be a problem causing the sheetrock to buckle inward with water stains in two different places in the house. Now their answer is put in a claim on her own insurance even though her insurance only covers the INSIDE of the home from the sheetrock in and the problem is all caused by THEIR part of the property. Do you know who I can file a complaint with to force them to do their job? What are your suggestions?

Steph9176 In order to try to help I will need to know which AW owner you're referring to.
In addition, I would need to talk directly with the owner if they would like me to help.
I suggest that they call me at 847-687-7705 and fill me in... what did the Property Mgr have to say specifically.
I would even be glad to stop by and take a look. --Ken

PS: Instead of this blog, I've been using a more private website to assist AW owners. Glad to share that info with all AW owners.
