In our never-ending quest to see just what kind of inventory is out there in the $200,000 range, we came across something fun this week – two condos with nearly identical prices, both with views of turn two at Texas Motor Speedway.
If you’re a racing fan, the idea of a regular perch on the fifth floor for every NASCAR Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity Series, Gander Outdoors Truck Series, and Indy races held at Texas Motor Speedway might just seem like the perfect treat. Host friends and family, enjoy the race in comfort (NASCAR races are held in November and March usually, which means you’ve got a grab bag of weather choices) regardless of whether it’s cold and rainy or mild and sunny.
Both our condos this week have one bedroom, one bathroom, and 1,000 square feet. Both come fully furnished in de rigueur racing aesthetic — plenty of black and white checkered motif and racing red to go around here.
Both are equipped with laundry facilities, a comfortable bedroom, and a splashy but cozy bathroom.
The kitchens are smaller, but perfectly sized for heating up snacks and quick meals, and it’s open to the living area.
Our first unit has a balcony perfect for watching the races, and it’s right off the living room (so if you’re wanting the play by play of the announcers on the TV, you have that, too).
Listed by Roberta Torres with Rendon Realty, the unit is priced at $209,000.
Our second unit, says listing agent Cassandre Brackeen with Repeat Realty, is fully furnished “right down to the silverware, and even includes a pull-out sofa to sleep extra guests.”
The layout is similar to our first unit, but offers an unobstructed view of turn two, plus a balcony.
“It is perfect for all your entertainment needs no matter if it’s just you, your family, coworkers, business partners or seven of your closest friends,” she adds.
This unit is priced at $209,999.
Condo dues are $400 a month, and includes maintenance and use of the building facilities. And racing isn’t all you have to entertain you, either — TMS is also near Tanger Outlets and several restaurants, and is an easy drive to Fort Worth and Denton.
