Spring is here

Well, it is that time of year again in Gainesville when the Azalea bloom, birds migrate in, and the weather is perfect.

It is also the time of year when condo sales are reaching their peak.

Condos for Sale in Gainesville FL

The next few months are always busy with parents buying their children a condo to live in while going to school here. It is cheaper than renting. At least it was until the market went crazy and prices hit record highs.  Since then the condo market has had some hard times and prices have come way down. It seems to be tapering off and it is cheaper to own than rent – we are even seeing investors buying condos as rental properties again.

It appears that we may have reached the bottom of this sagging real estate market. Investors are in town competing with parents to find the great deals. They are buying up a few “Kiddie Condo’s” of their own to rent or resell down the road causing a multiple offer situation. Click here to see all Gainesville condos for sale
