Property of the Week: Second Chance for a Great Kendall Condo

July 6, 2012

In real estate, it ain’t over til it’s over, and sometimes deals fall apart at the 11th hour. Sadly, that has happened with my great 1BR over at Thorndike Place in Kendall Square, when the buyer couldn’t get financing from the particular lender he wanted. But… his loss will be someone else’s gain!

This perfect rental alternative, pied-a-terre or investment unit has tons of perks: professional management, garage parking, in-unit laundry, central air (!!!), a common roof deck and bike room, and extra storage in the basement. My client has lovingly updated the unit — it’s the nicest so far of any of the units I’ve listed in this association. And with market rents for 1BRs in the building at $1,800 – $2,000 a month, the monthly costs to own the condo would be cheaper than renting it. No open house this weekend, but get in touch if you’d like to set up a private showing.
