Diamond Terrace Condos for sale & recently sold
Chad’s Take –
Diamond Terrace remains a popular building and has had less turnover than any other condo building in the East Village neighborhood. Diamond Terrace condos will likely be one of the first buildings to enjoy an increase to property values because of the location, low HOA dues and rent-ability.
If you were to buy a 2 bedroom condo at Diamond Terraceand put 25% down, you could cash flow it as a rental property…nominal income, but the ability to tie a great property up to keep as a vacation home or retirement home later. Let’s face it…life is more fun if you own a condo less than 1 block from a professional baseball stadium and 4 blocks from the Gaslamp Quarter.
Diamond Terrace is a really good buy and with a limited number of condos for sale, I would take advantage of the few short sale and foreclosure opportunities that are around right now….they won’t last long!
