400 Beach

400 Beach condominiumsNotes from Rob:

Had a familiar call today. Someone called and wanted to talk about downtown condos. We started by talking about Vinoy Place, which are very nice condos sitting right on Tampa Bay. Unfortunately, the units were too large for this invididual, so the subject went on to 400 Beach. As with most buyers who have been watching our market, he knew that the developer was having financial difficulties. He wanted to know if 400 Beach was a safe investment. As a Realtor, I cannot give investment advice, so I just spoke about my thoughts on the project.

Right now a buyer can put in an unsecured offer to the developer.  Then it is submitted to the bank for approval.  It is possible that some buyers will get some very good deals out of it.  What about the condo association, is it strong?  The developer still owns less than 25% of the units.  That means over 75% are owned by other homeowners who are just as concerned about keeping the condo association solvent and financially healthy.  If you are trying to buy low and flip quickly, I wouldn’t recommend this building (or any other in today’s market).  But if you plan to live in it for a few years and enjoy the great downtown St Petersburg, this could be a golden opportunity for you.

If 400 Beach is not your cup of tea, Signature Place opens next month, and Ovation follows soon after.  Lots to see and plenty to choose from.
