The real estate world was a different place 4 1/2 years ago. The thinking was that putting 10% down and re-selling after a 1 year was a valid business move. Now It has kicked me in the butt, because there is little chance to re-sell the condo, and the mortgage rates for jumbos are extremely higher. I will enjoy it while it lasts. Can always try to rent. It is a beautiful tower.
