It looks like the market in Downtown Augusta is continuing to improve! There have been some notable sales downtown, with murmurings of decent deals being considered and hunted for. It appears that the investors are bullish on Downtown, and that prices have not peaked. It also appears that although there is talk of a recession, most people don’t believe Augusta will be significantly impacted. It appears that some notable buildings are potentially transacting–Bonnie Ruben has put her portfolio on the market, and the Lamar building and the Marion building are both said to be under contract. Ironwood Apartments sold the first week of August, and 1500 apartments are either just delivered or in development.
