I've written about the Palisade Palms project in Galveston since 2008. Back then, all aflush with condo optimism, the two towers on Galveston Island were selling for $500,000 - $1.6 million. Flash forward to now and have we got a deal for you. On June 6, 27 condos will be auctioned off in an "inventory reduction" that has sellers naming their own price.
Prior to Hurricane Ike the condos were selling briskly but after the hurricane and the subsequent real estate slump sales slowed to a crawl. The Kennedy Wilson Auction Group is running the sale and starting bids will range from $125,000 to $375,000. The two towers have panoramic views over the Gulf of Mexico and amenities include two pool areas with spa hot tubs, a plaza deck with a fire pit, fitness center, tennis court, media lounge, private party room, gazebo, concierge service and more.
