The broker didn't think that I could do it. But I have an agreement on a price on a 3 bedroom condo in the Towers for $13,000 above the tax assessed value.
The current owner absolutely had to have a figure with a 5 in it. Once she actually started negotiating, this pretty much where it was sure to end up.
Now the lawyer stuff and inspection and getting the house on the market.
This is NOT the unit or building that I had told you about before! Why? I was sooooo close to making an offer on 2HPP, but I needed to look around some more and make sure that it really was the best that I could do (remember, I need to stay in the same school district!!)
So I looked at a place that I had previously deliberately overlooked before. Why? It has a reputation as being a building where it's only old people. And this building was a bit more expensive than the first one, too. But it turns out that the building is flipping. Many of the older senior citizens are moving out to a new Jewish assisted living facility that just opened and there are younger adults and even teenagers and kids moving in.
Now I get a washer/drier inside the unit, a little balcony, a year-round pool (but no hot tub)
