downtown la real estate: DTLA Arts District Development over 85% Sold - 07/30/12 05:50 PM
DTLA Arts District Development over 85% Sold Inventory's low, demand is high. It's just the game when involved in shifting markets, particularly in Downtown LA where the inventory is trickling through an IV line at the moment. One example in particular to highlight -- the 940 E 2nd St complex in DTLA's sought-after Arts District. Outside of being a beautiful building, the developer has been holding firm on prices. I've had different buyer clients ask me to let them know if there is ever a price reduction, but in this case, they have all but sold out at the project, (0 comments)

940 E 2nd St Inventory Update: DTLA Inventory in DTLA is low. Super low. And everything's moving, and not just in the 1st time buyer and investor price points. I'm talking the $500K range.

Outside of being in the Arts District which is the new, hip, trendy area just east of Alameda, the building itself has a townhouse-like feel, with a great set up for a live/work situation. With an immaculate attention to detail, these units have been moving quickly, (1 comments)
