Are you referring to Point Breeze neighborhood? All I can tell you about is the neighborhood I lived on 2 years ago 21st and Sigel (which is off of Moore St) Not good if you dont like crime----ie: break ins, robberies, arson, drug dealing. I had a 4 year old at the time and promptly moved out, fearing for my safety. No kidding... more
Dear Dr. Dave,
I think its a safe bet to consider the possibility that most of the cluster neighborhoods surrounding cc will become fully gentrified over the next couple of decades. Eventually, we will see newer development everyplace possible.
Thelma, I can connect you with an agent who can help you make an offer on this property. It is not for sale but was last offered for sale in 2008 listed for $52,000. I don't work in the city but have friends who do. Contact me through the site below.... more
by bike it should take about 10 to 15 minutes at the most.Please let me know if you need any further help
It just means the property is no longer being offered for sale. There could be any number of reasons from the seller changing her mind to the property being foreclosed by the lender. A savvy agent should be able to give you an idea of the exact situation.... more
Negioate with the seller. The seller must realize that the home was overpriced. They will not be able to sell the house to someone who wants to mortgage it without lowering the price and to have a cash buyer overpay in todays market is not going to happen.
I would discuss it with your agent if you have one and renegioate the deal down.

As a broker, you must know how to use MLS and pull comps. That will give you a good idea of value. Fact is you never truly know what a property is "really worth" until you put it up for sale and see what the market will bare. Even appraisals are only an "opinion of value", so what a property appraises for and it's actual sale price may be very different. Good luck in your research.... more
Hello Stepahnie. I would be happy to help you. You can go to my website to search through every home for sale and also get community, school and neighborhood reports. Happy house hunting.
The property is currently listed for $209,900 and the person purchased the property for $129,000. That's only a $80,900 difference. It also shows a settlement date of November 2002. However, I think that it's incorrect and should show as 2003. So it's either 7 or 8 years.
I think that given a typical economy, this place would have been priced properly. With that being said and not knowing what improvements that may or may not have been made, I think this property may only be $20K or so off the mark.... more
There's no easy answer to that question. In most parts of point breeze the highest and best use for a property is residential unless you're talking about a large parcel that can be used for more intensive commercial development (like a whole block, or half-block sized parcel). There is a plentiful supply, and only modest demand, for vacant commercial space in the area in the form of corner stores and commercially-zoned, rowhouse-style properties, so for those the commercial zoning adds little if any value since they're probably worth more when converted to residential use.
Hope that's helpful and feel free to contact me to discuss your specific scenario or questions.

Your agent will be best able to advise you on whether the net price to seller of $136,300 is a fair market price. The seller is responding by building in the seller assist - in my opinion every step of the price negotiation provides helpful feedback and clues. If this home is priced very well at its asking price, then this may be very fair. This response would suggest to me that the seller does not see much room.
One word of caution, seller assist essentially inflates the price and in so doing stresses the appraisal - let's assume for a minute that this is a very fair deal at $145,000 with a 6% seller assist. The home must appraise for the $145,000, though the seller's net is $136,300. If the value is there to appraise at $145,000, then you should be good, if not your deal may run in to a bump.
Work through this pricing question with your agent.
