Yes you can purchase condos for that price. You have a much better chance over any loan because you are a cash buyer also.

I have another buyer who is buying in that price range and this is what I know: The Fairmont Hills condos in Yorba Linda have some townhomes with direct access but they are around $260,000. In Brea, for $250k it'll be tougher to find with Direct Garage access as we have not found any. I haven't seen any in Placentia lately and we really haven't looked much in Fullerton east of State College.

The fact that you have cash is great. But don't expect to be able to get a condo far below list price because of it.

Good luck.

Hi, Jal. I would be happy to help explain the market here. I've found that even cash buyers are finding problems in getting their first choice homes unless they are willing to pay more than asking price, as some agents are pricing especially low in order to begin a type of bidding war. I think it's a bit misleading, but through careful analysis of the comparable properties in your price range, you can make sure that you are not getting taken by having you make an emotional response. Congratulations for having cash! You don't want to spend it unwisely, as it is hard to come by these days. Please feel free to call and I'll be happy to discuss this with you before you decide who you'd like to work with. We have may tools available to help you find your dream home. Please all at 714.296.0513. Bonnie Scribner, award-winning agent with %1 brokerage in north OC -- I'll work hard for you.

Yes, with the information you have provided. But, if you provide me with additional details, like bedrooms, baths, and garage size, I should be able to answer your question more thoroughly. You can always log into my website where you can search like a "real estate agent" for yourself. Call or email if you need additional help.
