We received this comment this morning and am moving it to a post for maximum visibility. I encourage all “silent majority” Vue buyers to contribute to the blog. Thank you Rob Cummings for this post!
I wouldn’t consider myself part of the “silent majority” since I was quoted as an enthusiastic soon-to-be-closer in the Charlotte Observer last week. I expect to be one of the first to close since I am purchasing a unit on the 4th floor. With that said, I too am interested to see what today’s value is for the units. I purchased back in 2006 and I think there was a price increase in 2007. So I am in at a price that is lower than what is quoted as the selling price range today, but I suspect still not at the “market rate” for Uptown condos in today’s market.
With that said, I will be waiting with baited breath for the appriasal results. If I/we have sufferred off-the-chart price deflation, then my close position will change. Of course we all would have to weigh walking from our deposits, or closing on a unit that is worth significantly less than what we contracted for, or (and my preference) work with The Vue to create a win-win scenario for the buyer and seller.
I love the building, amenities, etc. I walk by weekly and have watched the building being constructed from my office Uptown. Hopefully things play out and Dan McLean is true to his word to work with each buyer individually. If so, I should be a Vue homeowner soon and will provide further details about the building as I sit by the pool in September.
