As for seeing the condo, tell the realtor that you HAVE to see inside and that you are serious about buying, but you cannot buy something sight unseen. I would suspect they are hiding something if they won't even let you go and look. Find a better realtor that will help you more in getting what you want, not what they want to give you.

He probably isn't hiding anything, but doesn't want to spend time showing without an immediate commission possibility.
It is chicken an egg, but I will definitely not go any further with this without seeing more than is shown on the website pics.

Don't they have an office on-site that would be willing to show you one? Or is that just apts?

Good luck in your search. I love Centennial and look forward to being there more than part-time!

When we were looking at houses, there was one in a gated community in the Southwest. It looked great on the internet. When our realtor called to arrange a viewing we were told that the only way we could see it was if we made an offer. I had never heard of this tactic before so passed on the place. I don't like games.

If my client was interested I would probably just write the offer with price and terms all subject to modification based upon the viewing. Probably use a version of the short adder where nothing is real until after a successful viewing.

Client would have to be interested though. Otherwise a lot of trouble for little return.

The only way I would buy something, I would have to see it first to see if it fits my criteria. Otherwise, I will just find a realtor that will actually show me places. How is someone expected to make a bid if they never set foot inside? That does not compute.

I found a realtor that was willing to show one condo on short notice without me having to say I would make an offer right then if I liked it.
I liked the layout of the condo and the complex, so I plan to work with this agent when I'm ready to buy instead of the original agent.
I asked a couple people living in the complex whether there was good sound insulation between units and got conflictiing answers. So, I will assume the worst and plan on soundproofing the unit with something like QuietRock and soundproof double windows prior to moving in.

Appears the Ace does not hold up well in long run service.

The building in the background is the Lou Ruvo Brain Center..the work of famed architect Geary. Located right next to the World Market Center.

I saw the new bus running in Cenennial Hills this week. I asked about it and the driver said it only runs in the area occasionaly.

^^^Decent looking bus and transit terminal at Centennial Hills but the location, amenities and the structure of the Westcliff Transit Terminal is better.

Is there going to be a Trader Joes or Whole Foods type supermarket with a good selection of organic fresh fruits and vegetables in the area any time soon?
The nearest ones are pretty far away.
I looked in Vons, Alberstons, Smiths and Fresh & Easy in the area and they have very poor choices of organic produce. Organic is only important for certain produce, but they had organic versions of the wrong types of produce. Those stores didn't have organic versions of the worst high pesticide fruits and vegetables, but they had things like organic bananas and avacados that are a waste of money. So the only place you can go to find enough variety of organic produce is to go to stores like Whole Foods.
