You Snooze You Lose – Downtown Grand Rapids Condo Update

 

 

Timing Is Everything

Timing Is Everything

 Even in this market you have to move fast when opportunity presents itself. I had posted a couple of days ago about some great deals that had just been listed. A Cityview condo foreclosure and a Monroe Terrace condo foreclosure. The Cityview condo I just knew was going to go fast and when I found out about it the morning it was listed, I notified my buyers and contacts of this great deal. I went to show it the next day and was probably going to write an offer on it today or tomorrow, but it turns out they had accepted a cash offer last Friday. Whoever got this one, scored. It did need some work to be sure, but there was nothing a good hose down, some paint and carpet couldn’t cure.

The Monroe Terrace condo at 600 Monroe Ave NW, I had been watching since it got listed. It had several price reductions and finally sold this weekend as well.

What this shows is that even in this market, these condos will sell if priced correctly and it’s a good idea to have everything ready before you start looking. With a foreclosure property, you will typically need proof of financing in the form of a pre-qualification letter from a lender and an earnest money deposit of $1000.00. I would get these ready ahead of time because it isn’t fun to find a great deal only to lose it because you couldn’t write an offer straight away.
