Hi Justin,

They are restricting access to the basement because there is a serious mold issue. I had a client interested in this property and did some research and discovered this through my contact with the listing agent.

Best of luck.

Hi Justin.
re/ do not go into the basement. The buyer might not have access to the basement from the seller.
seller probably doesn't include use of the basement with the sale.
You can work with a realtor that will get that question answered for you before you go there.
You can make a decision if you do want to have access to the basement of a condominum that you purchase.
good luck Justin.

It comes with one parking space.

A home inspector will tell you what needs to be repaired and if the electric, heating and roof need to be updated. As to kitchens and baths, you will be the judge if you want them updated.

regarding the basement - I would quess it has to do with safety issues

Have you viewed the home?

Do you have a buyers agent?

Price often reflects condition - and potential profit for the effort one puts into the improvements.
