Fairfax Ridge Condo Weekly Update 11/08/08-11/14/08

Those thinking of renting. I am working with and have interest from 3 seperate groups. If you are thinking of renting out your two bedroom unit. Email us asap.

As of today (November 14, 2008 1 PM), there are 21 active listings (+3) in the MLS and 2 Condos are currently under contract and 2 Condos have sold in the last 30 days.

Here’s the breakdown of all active listings in MLS:

11 - 1 bedroom units (-2) (5 short sales, 3 bank owned, 3 regular sales)
10 -2 bedroom units (-1) (3 short sales, 6 regular sales, 1 bank owned)


According to MLS, there was 1 new listings this week. This is bank owned. DO NOT EXPECT THIS ONE TO LAST LONG. 2 listings have come back on the market. 1 is a short sale and one is a regular sale. These have previously been on the market but were taken off and now back on.... and will probably be on the market for a long time.

This short sale below was under contract the last couple weeks but did not make it through. Short sales are very tough to close and 9 out of 10 times not worth the hastle. Ask us for advice on trying to purchase a short sale.

Interesting Fact - 13 of the 14 sales this year have been 2 bedroom units.
So do not be suprised if next week the 2bedroom bank owned unit that just came on the market is under contract.
Well as you can see from our stats 2bedroom units priced correctly and rental condos at Fairfax Ridge are doing awesome ! You wouldn't think rentals would be doing good this time of the year but they are. We can help you get your unit rented. Contact us
It looks like to me there are about 7 overpriced 2 bedroom condos that will sit on the market for a while and its hard to say about the 1 bedroom units. You should not be priced higher than a 2 bedroom unit, thats just plain sense. So probably around 5 overpriced 1 bedroom units.
