Overall I would say depending on where you are looking the market is pretty good for midtown. Depending on the number of bedrooms and where in Midtown you are looking you may find condos starting at $69K. Of course the lower priced condos may need updating and are more likely to be 1 bedroom 1 bathroom, but sometimes you may find that diamond in the rough that is a foreclosure or a short sale.
Depending on where exactly you need to be in terms of location, schools, work, what your budget is, and how long you plan on staying; I would look more into buying an actual house. In terms of resale you would have an easier time.
Any more questions feel free to contact me anytime.
