Historic Franklin Brownstones Foreclosure

brownstone development site plan

214 emily court franklin tnIt is quite rare for a high-end property to be foreclosed upon in historic downtown Franklin, TN. It’s even more rare for one of the most sought addresses to experience that fate. It has indeed happened, there is a foreclosure in the Brownstones @ downtown Franklin.

214 Emily Court is a 3 bedroom, 3 full bath, 2 half bath, 2 car garage new construction masterpiece that features a center atrium which bathes the inside of this ultra-luxury brownstone with natural light. I am not using the phrase, “ultra-luxury” lightly, the crown molding is thicker than the tallest Bavarian crème pie you have ever seen and the spiral staircase is reminiscent of the famed Chateau de Blois. Someone will be thanking Fifth Third for giving them the opportunity to own this incredible home on the cheap.

Contact me for information on acquiring this asset from the bank or to preview this historic downtown Franklin Brownstone in person.

Velocity in the Gulch Sold Condos 2010

sold condos velocity in the gulch

As promised to a reporter who called today, here is the current list of sold condos for the Velocity in the Gulch. Clearly, the momentum has vanished in this project as a result of the ownership restructuring and loss of high LTV financing options for new buyers. The rumor mills continue to churn as other large projects like Rolling Mill Hill and 5th & Main fall. Personally, I am not advising any of my clients to purchase in this project at this time as I sense the winds of change gaining energy. However, I still believe Velocity in the Gulch to be an excellent entry level condo community that can thrive in the future given the correct circumstances.

What’s next for the Velocity Development

Rather than speculate at this time, I am going to sit this one out and diligently observe.

Note: I have been told that I am missing 1 sale. I will verify when I hand pull deeds at the end of the month.

Nashville Condo Prices and Closings Q2 2010

nashville condo prices and closings 2010

As expected, Q2 2010 condo prices and closing volume increased rather significantly over the first quarter. This fact can be directly attributed to the expiration of the second Federal first-time homebuyer’s tax credit. Nearly all new construction high-rises benefited during this period, but none as much as the Icon in the Gulch which nearly doubled its Q1 sales volume. Both the Adelicia and Terrazzo continue to impress with sustained increases in total price and price per square foot.

Listed are the vast majority of the condo closings in the following areas of Nashville: 1) Downtown CBD, 2) Sobro region, 3) Gulch, 4) Midtown, 5) West End and 6) East bank. I have only considered condo projects that were completed after 2006 and contain more than 60 total units. I have excluded sold out condo projects west of midtown. Those excluded include: Bristol on Broadway, Bristol West End, The Enclave, The Glen and all projects in the West End Circle area with the exception of The West End high-rise.

Nashville Condo Prices

Clearly, condo prices in Nashville will become much softer moving forward. With the lack of any new tax incentives, I expect both closing volume and especially, condo prices to fall in the third and fourth quarters.
