Despite Views & Beltline Proximity, Inman Park Unit Lingers

New, 31 comments

This spacious condo in the burgeoning bosom of Inman Park has so much going for it, an observer can't help wondering if its price is pushing the limits of possibility. Condos in this neighborhood, with steps-away proximity to the Beltline and an oncoming wave of retail, don't tend to last long on the market — especially not a month, as this has. The hard facts: It's a two-bedroom, two-bathroom corner unit with 1,358 feet, asking $439,900, which would be a bargain in certain pockets of Midtown. The listing agent swears it's been a "very lightly used" second home; records indicate it was purchased for $358,000 when the IPV Lofts building opened in 2006. Uncommon perks include two balconies, a deeded storage unit and a built-in Murphy bed that flips into a desk. Even Walk Score Nazis should agree with the 86 here. So is the industrial aesthetic of concrete ceilings and floors a little dated? Are buyers not willing to spring for red cabinetry and a gym's worth of wall mirrors? Or is the price simply too ambitious?
