Are condo sales picking up in Macomb County?

March 27th, 2013 · No Comments · Condos in Macomb County MI

The condo segment of our real estate market was hit especially hard during the last few years, more so than the single family residential sales.  A couple of things contributed to the severe decline in market values for condos:

The lack of financing available, combined with higher down payment amounts when you could find a lender to finance you.
HUDs newer guidelines for “approved” condo complexes.

If you tried to sell your condo over the last 5 years then you know exactly what I’m talking about.  Lots of interest from buyers, but unless a buyer had cash or a very hefty down payment, they couldn’t purchase your home.

One of the “bright” spots for condo sellers this year is the fact that investors are still out there in full force, and realize that with climbing real estate prices that they will have to decide to purchase now or will be losing out on some terrific investment potential.  I am currently working with 2 different investors that are interested in purchasing condos that they can hold on to for the long term, and rent out for monthly income.   They are running in to multiple offer situations, much like the buyers for single family homes are running in to the “bidding wars”.

If you have any questions about the current market value of your condo, please don’t hesitate to ask.  I’d be happy to look at the market in your area, no pressure – I promise.
