Despite the fact that there are a number of rentals, foreclosures, and short sales, the percentage of these units compared to the total number of units is low enough where you can get financing. The reserves of the building are large and growing. Assessments here are lower when compared to many high rise units in the area.

I have lived there from 2004 to 2009 and still own a unit and parking spaces there so I'm familiar with the building.

If you'd like to discuss the characteristics of this building and/or the one next door (3930 N Pine Grove- I own a unit there too). I'd be more than happy to discuss all of this with you.

There are 9 2/2 for sale and a few 2/1 also on the market. This is one of those difficult buildings that had many short sales/foreclosures over the past 2-3 years. Values tend to be a bit all over the place. They often list parking for about 30K, but they end up almost giving it away to get a sale.
The owner occupancy is poor with many rentals. Getting a loan therefore is a bit more difficult. I would be careful with this building and you should have at least a 5 yr time frame to hold any unit you buy in this building.

Asen,
As you can see from the other replies, there is quite a few listings available in this building. I would have your agent set you up with an appointment to see the unit. If you are not working with an agent, I suggest grabbing one. This way you have someone to walk you through the buying process at no cost to you. Interview two or three agents and go with the one you mesh best with.

Asen,

Are you familiar with this building, its Park Place Tower Condos a full amenity condo building. There are 49 units for sale and 3 unit under contract. There are 900 units in the buiding I am not sure if that number includes the cabanas you can buy near the pool. The location is fantastic seconds from the lake. There are 9 2 bedroom units in the building let me know if you need more info.

Thanks
