3 Story Office REO Rare Sale


Hi Prospects & Friends,

I wanted to share a rare moment I came across, recently about this office. First I remember this office when I was a little girl I was about 12 years old. I would always ask my parents why was this house sitting close to Krogers, and my parents told me this was no house and it was a unique office building. I then as a little girl started thinking wow I love it and want to explore it, well I never got the chance and time passed by. As I got older I would occasionally drive by it since my parents lived close to it when I would visit them. I always thought someday I would tour this office and own it myself one day, but I knew it was well worth over $1,000,000 since it sold for that back in 2002 and I would not be able to take on that kind of debt so I moved on and started investing in condos. My parents moved and I haven't been by this office in years. Well recently I was doing a search on Costar and came across this property being sold as a REO sale REO means (real estate owned) foreclosure by the bank. The property sold for less than about $500,000 and sold May 2010 of this year, I was stunned to see this. I had no idea this property would ever be a possible foreclosure, but my only conclusion was 'The Great Recession" caused it and the new buyer is quite lucky because of the office sitting in a main location with demanding real estate growth. This office has always been unique to me and listed below are some characteristics of this unique office:

7,232 square feet
3 Stories
Free- Standing Office Building
A+ Location
Year built- 1984

It's rare to see something like this and all I can say is I remember this property when I was about 12 years old. I'm not sure what the buyer plans on doing with this office, but every once in awhile I still think about running my company A. Colette Harris Properties, LLC out of it and making the 1st floor the reception area and my office, renting the 2nd floor and using the 3rd floor for files and etc for my company. As I look back maybe someday again I will cross paths with this unique office building.
