Hi Jordan,

The Atwater is probably my favorite condo building in the South Waterfront neighborhood. First of all it sits right on the river so the views are amazing and completely protected. What you see is what you'll have for years to come. Also the finishes are top notch. One thing to consider when choosing a building is the variety of floorpans that encourage a wide range of values. You never want to get stuck in a building where everyone is selling in the same price range.

Happy Condo Shopping!

Hi CJ,

I am sure you have gotten a ton of great advice here, but I am going to pour in my two cents. I have had listings in buildings, complexes with ongoing litigation and they are a challenge to sell based on the lack of financing availability. This drives prices lower for those that absolutely have to sell. Inevitably these issues get resolved and once it does, values typically rebound quickly. This could be a great investment for you if you are able to get the financing or buy with cash.

Good Luck!

Hi Sam,

I too am going to cut and paste an answer from a previous posting.

Looks like you got some great advice below. I'll throw in that interest rates are fantastic right now which depending on your timing could be a factor. I have had quite a few clients buy in the Pearl recently and all of them have been happy with their decisions. Home values will continue to rise (albeit a bit slower that last year) and rates look to be on the rise. You may have missed the bottom, but I believe that given market factors now is still a great time to buy. Good luck!! ... more

Toots and Chris have this right. Some sellers want their privacy and I support that. The properties that are listed with that concern in mind are easily found by a buyer broker.
