What are the pros and cons of buying in a mixed-use development?

Asked by jangie88, Charlotte, NC Thu Jul 31, 2014

I have a son and daughter that I plan on helping buy their first homes. They are young professionals and want to live in the uptown area of our city (Charlotte N.C). There is a new mixed-use building that has just finished construction. I have reservations because this building has 172 hotel rooms, 67 condo units, 2 penthouses, a rooftop restaurant, etc. I always go into real estate thinking about the resell so with the mixed-use, as much as it's a draw for my kids, it's giving me pause. Any advice?

The key will be availability of a mortgage. If a buyer is required to put more down, pay a higher rate or such, the value could be affected. Mix use usually equals more risk for the lender. Check to see what is available now and that will give you a good guide.
