Palms Place just about ready for occupancy


Palms PlaceThe condominium tower standing west of Palms Casino Resort was recently granted a temporary certificate of occupancy by Clark County. Buyers who have purchased property there may now close on them and start ferrying in furniture as early as February 29.

The project will add 599 units, ranging in size from a 600-square-foot studio to a 1,200-square-foot one-bedroom suite, to the already saturated Las Vegas condo scene. In addition, the buildings highest four floors hold 21 penthouses that are still being worked on and are scheduled for completion in May. Despite the currently soft real estate market here in Southern Nevada, the stellar, celebrity-flavored reputation of Palms should give it an extra boost in selling the condominiums.

Esko New Condo constrution is struggling a little around here because 51% of the units per phase have to have sales contracts in order to meet Fannie and Freddie guidelines before any of them can close.  That can be a little bit of a challenge these days.

I couldn't find out how many units they have sold so far and what the guidelines are for mortgages.

FNMA and Freddie won't touch condotels...doesn't seem like many alternate investors will either.

Usually it's a portfolio lender who does these projects.
