This is news! most new construction condos in Cleveland have been a bit in denial over the market and kept prices relatively the same throughout the overall decline.  The developers at Stonebridge Plaza on the West Bank of the Flats have recently made MAJOR price reductions up to $100,000 off, in an effort to be viewed as more of a bargain and to get some would be buyers off the fence.  I think it is a great move and puts them in a very competitive place.  You should see other developers follow suit if they know whats good for them.

US Bank took over a little bank called Pacific National Bank back in 2009. In doing so they were able to scoop-up the debt to a little downtown San Jose building called 360 Residences. As most Realtors might already know from reading their marketing material from The Mark Company this development has been Half Sold Out since before they started construction.

The 360 Residence has been having financial problems? - "what is that you say how could they with half the units already sold?" I think that the Mark Company has been caught in a little fib that in our industry can cause some big issues. Now I know why they keep saying it, trying to build some sense of urgency for potential buyers but as a Realtor it is against rules and ethics to not tell the…

Home Sales with and without Parking: note that many condo developments offer parking by lease instead of by title, which is a very different situation than a condo or house that does not have onsite parking and leases it nearby. Appraisers have estimated that the first parking space is worth about 10% of the price.

TIC Sales by Quarter over the Past 3 Years: huge decline due to financing conditions.

Average Days on Market for SFDs & Condos by Quarter over Past 3 Years: lowest in 2 years.

SF SFD (House) Median Sales Price by Quarter over Past 3 Years: overall stability since 2nd Quarter 2009

One Ecker – With the public release now behind us, One Ecker has been very well received by the community. Thus far, 13 homes have already gone into contract and we strongly encourage our clients to schedule an appointment with us if they wish to take a look.

The project is a converted ice house. This brick and timber structure has been turned into beautiful loft-like condos in the heart of the financial district. However, given the proximity of this building to the surrounding high rises, the natural light in each home varies greatly. We believe that the most premium homes will sell very quickly and we want to provide our clients with the opportunity to take a first look.

Please keep checking back for further updates!
