central market condos: FHA Approved Condos in the Central Market Condo Area of Dallas Texas - 04/01/13 02:49 AM
Until several years ago, only 3 of the 17 condo complexes in the Central Market Condo area of Dallas, Texas, had FHA loan approval.  If you wanted to get a mortgage to buy a condo, you got a conventional loan.  As we headed into the wild and woolly downturn in the mortgage industry that began in 2008, conventional lenders became less willing to lend the money to condo buyers. Condos pretty much stopped being sold (except for deeply discounted properties that sold to cash investors).
In the past, in some parts of the country, there had been some really wild speculation … (3 comments)

central market condos: La Fontaine Condos Dallas TX - 10/14/12 02:39 AM
Since March 1, 2011, there have been a total of 4 condos sold in the La Fontaine Condo Complex in Dallas, Texas.  Because the complex has such a large mix of floor plans, it really is almost unfair to throw the sales into the same calculation.  It means that we are comparing bananas to tennis shoes!  However, I am doing it anyway because the average number is consistent with the overall performance of the area.
The properties sold include
a 974 sq ft loft-style 1 bedroom two units that have 1189 sq ft, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths a 1350 sq ft … (0 comments)

central market condos: Williamsburg II Condos in Dallas Texas - 08/10/12 01:06 AM
Williamsburg II Condos are located on the north side of E University Blvd at Matilda Street, in east Dallas Texas.  The complex has nice landscaping and is pretty. The complex is built with a brick that tends to appeal to a large number of people, a red brick that gives the buildings a warm and inviting look.  Each condo unit has a bay window in the formal living space.  The curve of that bay window helps to visually break up the long horizontal lines of the buildings.  Something else about the complex is that about 10 years ago, their board began … (1 comments)

central market condos: Sandhurst Manor Condos in East Dallas - 07/06/12 01:03 PM

central market condos: Central Market Condos in Dallas TX - 06/22/12 01:37 AM
I live in a pocket of condos located in east Dallas Texas around the Central Market at Lovers Lane and Greenville.  I love my neighborhood.  It doesn't look like much from the street, but living here is great!  Once you are home, you aren't going to have to venture very far to find everything you could possibly need.  If I am overcome by the need for a single slice of Italian Cream Cake at 9:30 at night, all I have to do is slip into a pair of flip-flops and walk a block down the street to the best destination grocery … (1 comments)
