Do Not Buy A Condo In The Isabella Without Reading This

Isabella At Midtown is a new construction 5-story condo building located at the corner of Main St and Isabella St.

If you’re looking to buy a condo in Isabella At Midtown, here are key risk factors you need to consider.

  • RESALE RISKBased on the last decade of Midtown resale trends, the price per square foot of The Isabella is materially above the norm. In other parts of Houston, some of the newest condos have resold at up to 32% under developer prices. Since most buildings were just completed, there isn’t a robust resale market. Buying a new construction condo from a developer with unproven resale-ability, and when the price per square foot is materially above the market pricing is a risk factor that buyers should take into account.
  • VIEW LOSS RISK: One of this developer’s principal prior projects recently experienced material view loss, which has impacted resale trends in this building. Any buyer considering The Isabella should be aware of the potential for view loss from constructions in Isabella, Cleburne or Main Street.
  • COMPLETION RISK: So far, 11 of Houston’s new condo projects have been cancelled by developers (all of which had received client deposits). If a condo project doesn’t make, are you aware of your rights and protections?
  • DEVELOPER CONTRACTS AND ONE-SIDE AGREEMENTSThe Texas Real Estate Commission provides standard contracts that are used in over 90% of Texas Real Estate Transactions. These contracts are meant to be fair and are drafted to protect both sides. If you are signing a contract with a new developer who does not use a TREC contract, be sure that you are aware of the (usually one-sided) contract clauses and provisions that you are agreeing to that you normally don’t have to agree to when buying another property.

Houston is experiencing an unprecedented amount of new condo construction.

Based on prior condo resale trends and the current (expensive) price per square foot rates, it is unlikely that all of the projects will be successful investments for the buyer who may need to resale their unit within a 3-7 year period.

Ensure that you’re consulting with your Realtor to help you understand the risks, market pricing, and how to protect yourself when looking at new construction options.
