Comment of the day: Magnolia and Wilson building is nice, but condos overpriced at $400k

“I actually looked at this building before purchasing new construction farther west.. it is a nice building and has the amenities you would expect in a 4-5 floor elevator building, plus low assessments, but I wanted three bedrooms and preferred new construction.

‘However, I just checked out the prices here on the MLS and I’m stunned. I wasn’t crazy about the location, which is why my visit was nothing more than that, but there are currently 7 units for sale in the building between $380-$430K, and most are two-bedroom units with a small ‘den,’ which was little more than a closet from what I can remember.

“Considering the ‘prime’ Wilson Avenue location, I don’t know why anyone would buy these units when they can move to any of the new-construction developments a few blocks west for the same money and get three full bedrooms, sans (most of) the drunks and vacant retail spaces. There will be a Starbucks there soon also (in the Vis Vitae building at Clark and Leland) if that’s the only thing this location has going for it.”
