Hillmount Condos Slashing Prices on remaining developer owned units!

Hillmount condos, located at the corner of College Ave and Cherry St, have announced a great promotion to sell  their remaining developer owned units. Prices have been cut, buyer incentives offered and we really like to hear that. Hillmount condos are one of those downtown Grand Rapids condo developments that have sold well over the last year or so. Building amenities include a great roof top deck, well equipped fitness center and WiFi throughout the building. Many of the units here have been upgraded and the most of them are bright and open. These condos are located just a few minutes walk from the downtown core in Heritage Hill, close to St. Marys and Cooley Law School.

The three remaining units that the developer is offering are large, 1 bedroom condos priced as follows:

  • Unit 102-$79,900 INCLUDING FULL FINISH
  • Unit 103-$89,900 FINISHED MODEL
  • Unit 201-$99,900 VERY UPGRADED FINISHED MODEL

All three of these floor plans are the largest one bedroom floor plans in the building and also include FREE DUES FOR ONE YEAR with a $5,000 gift certificate to Klingmans or Best Buy. If you’re not familiar with Klingmans, they are an upscale furniture store here in town.

Downtown Grand Rapids Condos That are FHA Approved

13 10 2009

 

Grand Rapids Condos Downtown Grand Rapids offers some incredible condos from cool, affordable urban studios at the Hillmount or the Boardwalk condos, to luxurious penthouses and lofts at Riverhouse condos or the Fitzgerald Condos. One of the problems we have been experiencing with buyers wanting to purchase a downtown Grand Rapids condo has been financing. Many of the condos, especially the “boutique” condos like Peck, Front Row, Cityview or 65 Monroe require a conventional mortgage with ten to twenty percent down. It can be difficult to come up with that amount of cash  on hand.

Having said that, there are some condos that are FHA approved. This is important to many buyers, especially first time condo buyers looking to capitalize on the $8000 Tax credit. With an FHA loan, you need only pay a 3.5% downpayment on the loan. Much better than 10% or 20%!

Boardwalk Condos Boardwalk condos are FHA approved! Just before last Christmas they were approved. Boardwalk is a great building with many amenities including a pool hot tub area, game room, theatre room, fitness center, roof top deck, salon and JD Reardon’s bar. These condos are loft style with exposed brick, exposed duct work, river views and tall ceilings. Many floor plans are available from studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms and there are two courtyards, one with the pool and the other with a peaceful, wooded area where the outdoor grills are located.

The Hillmount condos are FHA approved! The Hillmount condos offer aHillmount Condos little different feel to the Boardwalk. The building itself is an older, solid brick buillding and it does offer a few amenities such as wireless (wifi) internet, fitness center and an awesome rooftop deck with grill. Many of these condos offer lovely hardwood floors and updated kitchens with stainless steel appliances. This is a great building located at the corner of College and cherry, minutes from the downtown core. Pets are allowed.

Union Square condos Union Square condos are FHA approved! Union Square is one of the coolest buildings in town. You have probably seen it while driving on the expressway at the junction of I-96 and US-131 highways. The building is the Union Square High School and there is a big mix of condos here from affordable 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms which also includes some incredible penthouse units. Amenites include a very nice fitness center and the  roof top deck, pool and hot tub. These condos are loft style similar to Boardwalk but with more floor plans and larger windows. Some of the old school features like chalk boards and lockers have been blended in with the modern condo features.

Fulton Street Flats are FHA approved! This is a new addition to the downtownFulton Street Flats condo scene and has just been approved. These are affordable 1 and 2 bedroom condos with some nice standard features accross the street from Davenport University and minutes to the downtown core. Some features include large balconies, hardwood floors and granite counters. I like the location here and for the money, you get a good sized condo with reasonable association fees, parking and laundry rooms in each unit.
