Recent Offer at Historic 1 Ecker

One of our favorite buildings in the downtown area, 1 Ecker is a brick & timber building (built in 1906) converted to condos in 2010.  Units here rarely go on sale and to our delight, we had a client interested in making an offer on unit #406, an elegant junior 1 BR at 527 sf.   Most recent sale for a junior bedroom here sold in August of 2013 for $588,000, unit #302.  That unit was bigger by 14 sf but on a lower floor.  Our client made a valiant attempt for unit #406 at $550,000 (asking $495,000).  There were a total of 12 offers and a few of them went over $600,000.  For a small space, this condo fetch a high price but you know what, this unit is so nice, it’s worth it. 419398419398_01

Lyft Adds Insurance

Remember the days of waiting to hail Taxis and expecting to get to your destination by the next day?  Lyft and Uber has exploded in popularity but with the New Years Eve tragic accident by an Uber driver, Lyft has responded by adding more insurance.  A way to look more favorably with the public and our Supervisors who is looking into more regulations.
