FOR SALE | 912 BARNABY ST SE #301 - $55,000

This property was originally sold on Nov 26, 2006 for $179,900. 

Knowing that all of these condos (see below) sold for $180k+ six years ago makes me want to scream.  Yes, the housing market is down but in many parts of Ward 8 the condo market has been decimated. Some condo units are now worth only 1/3 1/4 of what they were a few years ago.

Why there hasn't been emergency city council hearings on this issue I will never know. 

Oh wait, I suppose I should say "gentrification" and this post will skyrocket to the top of everyone's Google alerts. :(

There is more than meets the eye to this sale. The owners had to go and fast. No idea why they went for $55k, that is unbelievable. It is a great complex, HOA and management issues aside. They did a great job on the renovation in 2006, really nice touches on the units.
