Chad’s Take-  Now that the developer has sold all of their Park Terrace Condos, I think we are going to see a lot of short sales and foreclosures at Park Terrace for 2011.  The reason I say this because one of the components that made Park Terrace so successful with their sales is that the building is FHA and VA approved.

With many buyer’s having bought in 2009 at higher prices, with only 3.5% down payments, if these buyers want to move today, they would be facing having to bring money to the table to close escrow.  Values at Park Terrace crept down slowly in 2009 and 2010 so the owner’s only equity, if any, would be their down payment.

If you figure the cost to sell at 6% in sales commissions against a down payment of 3.5%, then it is likely many of the future sales will be Park Terrace short-sales or even foreclosures if owners just decide to let their homes go.

Park Terrace is a great building, in a really exciting neighborhood and will have really good value.  I expect some great buyer deals to be had in 2011.  As the Downtown San Diego real estate market makes it’s rebound, expect prices at Park Terrace to go up.

Park Terrace does not contain any East Village Lofts.  For ideas about investing in condos at Park Terrace, see how the numbers pencil here.

How many short sales do you think we will see in 2011 at Park Terrace?
