The Visio Condo has One of my Favorite Units


What I can't understand is why one of Robertson Development's units at the Visio has been on the market for so long. Their units, at the rear of the building, has fantastic 22'+ ceilings, loft style windows, a lofted second bedroom and a wonderful kitchen for entertaining. Robertson's creativity really impressed me by his use of wood 2"x4" ends as the floor, laid vertically and then stained. What a building. If I'm not mistaken, the units been on for nearly a year.

The address is 2109 10th St NW, unit 102, priced at $799,000.

If I wanted to spend nearly $1 million in the U street area, PN wouldn't even come close to the finish work at this beautiful unit.

The Erie in Adams Morgan

This month DBLee Development will be selling their eight unit condominium in the heart of Adams Morgan on Champlain Street. The Erie features both one and two bedroom units, starting in the $500's for the one's and $1 million's for the two's. There will be four penthouse units with outdoor space. What makes this building so unique is not the features, design, detail oriented development, but rather the quality of construction DB Lee is known for. The building, while only required to be built with wood, has been constucted out of cement and steel, a far better and more accomodating material for the discerning buyer. The building reminds me a bit of Brook Rose's Iridium Condominium in Adams Morgan DCat 1306 Penn. For more information Washington DC Real Estate

A great new building coming in Adams Morgan

This past week I had the pleasure of touring the Coronado Condominiums in Adams Morgan/Kalorama. The 28 unit building is sure to please the area, as supply diminishes and from what I can tell, demand is picking up. The Coronado sits at 1840 Vernon St NW, just a stones throw from the bar scene and from Dupont Circle. Novo Development originally started working on the project in late 2007 and as of this spring, should have a model up and ready within weeks.

You'll Love our Building!


Signs of the market are everywhere. I am not talking about economic indicators or several old men sitting around a table on T.V. Sunday morning talking about what they think. I am talking about the little indicators I see every day.

I deal with building developers and potential buyers every day. I hear both sides of the argument; DC is too expensive to buy in, DC isn’t making me money on my development so on and so forth. I also see plenty of people buying homes and plenty of buildings filled to capacity.

One thing I dislike is when a developer or agent tells me how great a building is and how they have buyers lined up to purchase. Please don’t tell me one thing and let me see another. The picture above doesn’t say a building is great, it says a developer is desperate to move units.

Do you know of any other signals that you look for to see if a building is popular or having difficulty moving units? I always say customers are the smartest consumers and have the best tricks for seeing value. What’s yours?
