Seller will consider contributing towards a portion of buyer's closing costs or give an appliance allowance with a full price offer. 1 year buyer's Home warranty through Service Plan of Florida provided. One of the most competitively priced units in NW Gainesville considering the updates and the great location.
Please visit my article about how a less expensive listing price DOES NOT equal a less expensive mortgage payment! The more expensive unit I referred to was this one. When the lender did a mortgage calculation for my customers, INCLUDING estimated real estate taxes, the association fee, and mortgage insurance, at a close to 6% interest rate, my customers were looking at $960/month, which is competitive for this price range. Seller owned for 16 years and had homesteaded taxes for low taxes to this day. The $960 includes the higher tax estimate for when the unit is reassessed for 2009.
Also visit the article for purchasing real estate for your son or daughter who will be attending UF or SFCC to see why it makes sense to buy instead of rent (for yourself or a family member!!)
