What’s the right price for a condo in downtown St Petersburg Florida?

Finding the right price for a downtown condo in StP etersburg is an interesting process. Here are two different approaches happening right now:

SignatureP lace is a 244 unit condo that began closings last June. Approximately 100 condos had sold by the end of the year. Individual unit sales are on hold as it’s been announced that 35 units are being auctioned on March 7th. It’s an absolute auction, with a minimum bid on each of the units. Minimums range from $135,000 to $400,000+.  Once those are sold, over half of the units in the building will have been sold. We’re assuming that the auction prices will determine the sale prices on the remaining units. In the last couple of weeks thousands of people have visited Signature Place to look at the condos.

400 Beach had 18 units (out of approximately 100 since the others had already sold) that were part of a foreclosure of Opus South, which had used these units to cross collateralize another project. Speculation continued for some months after the foreclosure sale. Last week the lender announced prices on these 18 units. 10 went to contract in the last 9 days and today they raised the prices on the remaining 8 units by 10%.

This shows that there are indeed buyers out there, ready and able to buy – they just want to find the right price.
