Right now it looks as if there are a few short sales here in Cedar Lakes. Home owners do not worry about these. There is such a small chance these will even sell. Eventually they will just be foreclosed on and sold. Most realtors do not want to work wiht short sales because they are such a hastle and something like 1 in 20 get closed.

Now I do know I am about to contradict myself here but I do know one of the people short selling their condo in the new condo section (Christopher at Cedar Lakes) and I am pretty sure the bank has agreed to sell it at this price. This rarely happens but when it does short sales have a higher percentage of closing. It is a 2bd/2ba very nice condo. If you are interested in seeing this unit please contact me.

Not much has been selling in the Cedar Lakes area except for the older condos. Owners there have some equity to work with and can afford to sell and then buy their next place at a low price.

I do expect to see a couple more townhomes come on the market soon. There are some currently on the market that are extremely overpriced and are going to continue to sit on the market. These owners either are upside down on the mortgage and are about to be short saled or foreclosed on or they are just not listening to what the market is telling us their house should be priced out.

Keep checking back each week for updates on Cedar Lakes. Once the 6 under contract close, I will have the final numbers on here.
