This might be one of the better deals on the investor side that has ever been profiled as a Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R), since the developer paid $200,000. cash for the entire building in 2010. In addition to the subject property, there are three additional condo units in this building, all currently under contract, listed from $400,000 to $525,000. Having personally brokered numerous properties in the Trinidad neighborhood over the years (ranging from $65,000. in the early 2000s to $500,000. at the peak of the market for a four unit building), I have to say that I’m rather impressed at the sale of a condo unit at this price. As one of the commenters noted on the original GDoN post, “the times, they are-a-changing, my friend…”
Located on the west side of the neighborhood, and substantially larger than other condo units recently marketed in Trinidad, these are much more expensive than a typical condo unit in this location. Now that these are selling, however, I would not be surprised to see similar developments in the future.
