What a Week - The Agony of Defeat.....

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals BK659643


Ummmm, well what I mean is "DA AGONY of DA-FEET".....so say some of my buyers this week!   Their feet are killing them from viewing so many condos!

It's Spring Break here for the University of Florida, but that means there are parents here for soon-to-be UF students and we are hunting for condos near UF.

University of FloridaI think I have worn out two sets of parents here, and they are amazed at how many condos are for sale at great prices.  So, if they want to see them....we get busy.   I always tell them to dress comfy and wear their comfortable shoes.

Here in the Gainesville market, you have different scenarios to consider for your student's housing at UF:

  • New Construction Communities with Community Pools, Gyms, Tennis, and on a Bus Line?
  • Re-Sale Condos in established Communities popular to students.
  • Condo Conversion Communities
  • Does the condo fee include insurance, full exterior maintenance, ammenities, or utilities?
  • What Price Range can your monthly budget afford?
  • Is it on a bus line - as all students RIDE FREE on our Regional Transit System Bus Lines!
  • How far away from campus do you want to be?
  • How many bedrooms, how many baths??
  • Does your student want to live alone, or rent other rooms to pay that mortgage?

These are great questions I propose to my parents/buyers as this will determine the best complexes for them to investigate and see.  Let me help you find you a condo near UF!

If your student is planning to start school at the University of Florida, please contact me and we can get to work finding the best place for your family.

Christine, I, too had a "shop 'til Pat drops" day yesterday - all on foot downtown, seven properties in all.  Thank goodness I was wearing sensible shoes!
