Friday Five Hundred: Life is Sweet on Turtle Creek, And This Renovated Claridge Condo Has Views That Inspire
We tend to obsess over condos here from time to time, searching through listings and Pinterest. (By the way, did you know you can pin photos from CandysDirt.com just by hovering over them and clicking the “Pin It” button? Well, you can.) Sometimes we find one that is so money and it doesn’t even know it.
What do you think? I spoke with one Realtor Monday who said, yes, buyers are already worried about buying on the Katy Trail, where there have been a rash of robberies and gunmen threats to “pop you”. Not just buyers, but sellers are worried about how this will affect property values. Talking to a real estate veteran today, he tells me there are some areas in Dallas where the mercury has burst and we have less than a one month supply of inventory. Condos and townhomes not quite as hot, and this robbery stuff is not helping. Maybe give the guys an extra ten for hurting property values?
You know, the Katy Trail is no longer the only hot trail in town. Here’s a pretty home on Northaven and backing up to the Oncor Power lines, but keep in mind that statement has a new meaning! The City of Dallas Parks and Recreation just completed the Northaven Trail right behind this house, and already it is a huge hit. The trail will link White Rock Creek Greenbelt, Royal Park and the Elm Fork Greenbelt. It will connect with the existing White Rock Creek Greenbelt Trail and the proposed Elm Fork Trail. The trail will also connect several public and private schools, churches, and a YMCA at a total length of 9.4 miles.
Oh, I am saving you so much money today with this listing you’ll be able to buy a second home in Miami or Costa Rica. Nice Uptown location here with this great starter condo, perfect for a single gal or guy. Seller is so motivated he is offering a full six months of paid HOA dues ($139 per month) at closing — now that’s an offer! The spacious one bedroom, one bath at 4111 Cole (#32) is 682 square feet and decked out. Get this: Carerra marble countertops, wood floors, stainless steel appliances and even a wood burning fireplace. The kitchen has oodles of counter space and includes a breakfast bar, pantry, and desk for home office needs. The back balcony has downtown views and great sunsets. The community includes a pool and hot tub with a deck, grill and lounge chairs that make Texas summers survivable. Gated, secure covered parking, near Cole Park, tennis courts, The Katy Trail and even a dog park. Reduced to $115,000 from $129,900, the last unit in the building for sale and like I said, a little incentive of those HOAs paid up for six months. Call Jennifer Shindler at Dave Perry-Miller and go for it! I mean,with rates this low you may not see a lick of appreciation but your payment will be secure and this baby will be your’s!
