Our prediction for 2012
Jasmine will continue to see small depreciation in pricing due the lack of financing available to homebuyers and will see continued purchases with cash buyers. One key to the financial recovery of this complex will be to get those condominium owners facing foreclosure to keep their HOA fees paid and pursue a short sale instead of letting their condo units sit vacant and affecting the other sellers in the complex. Once financing opens up in the complex we anticipate to see an improvement of the sales pricing in the complex which is still in demand for homebuyers but out of reach due to financing options. Homebuyers searching for condos in Jasmine should focus on Homepath eligible units or HUD owned units as these provide more available homeowner financing than openly available.
