2 Bed, 2 Bath Aliso Viejo Condo Awaits You. Just $430,000!

Aliso Viejo is a lovely Orange County community positioned south of Lake Forest and north of Mission Viejo, California.

16 Alicante
1,496 square feet in size ($287/sq foot)
2 bedrooms
2 bath
2 car garage
Price: $430,000
Last Buy Price: April 1993, $125,000

Assuming you can scrounge up $86,000 for the 20% down payment, you can finance the remaining $344,000 with a fixed rate 30 year mortgage. Monthly mortgage payment at a 6.13% mortgage rate from the local bank and presto: A monthly mortage payment of just $2,091.29. That was easy!

But wait a second. What do we see just down the road nearby?
Another 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, slightly smaller in size, for $390,000!
A $40,000 difference!

87 Pamplona
1,213 square feet in size ($322.00/sq foot - WTF?)
2 bedrooms
2 bath
2 car garage
Price: $390,000 as of Feb 18 (holy crap!)
Original Buy Price: November 2006, $421,172 (holy crap again!)

And dammit if both condos don't have brand new gas stoves!

Aarrrrghhh! Runaway!

Come on people! Let's get with the program, shall we!
The temporarily increased loan limits are starting to make no sense at all if people keep dropping their pants on price!
