As the old saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. And the folks who were prepared and had cash and contract in hand really scored on this downtown duplex condo. It listed last Friday and only took the weekend to find a buyer. It's no surprise that this place went so fast, as it's got a number of great things going for it. First of all, the views are incredible. The windows are tall and every room has great views. Secondly, a heated, indoor parking space was included at the asking price. And finally, the seller was not messing around with the asking price when they listed this place. It listed on Friday for $699,900 when it had sold just over a year ago for $700,000. The place listed back in December 2013 when the market was still a bit uneasy for $718,000, and now that things are back on the upswing, the owner probably could have listed it for a bit more. However, it appears that the seller was serious about selling and the buyer has gotten themselves a really sweet place on Superior for a sweet price.
