MLS Watch: Meritage re-sales and lofts at Monique and Veer

Meritage

There has been some discussion of re-sales in the forum. One unit, #401, went STI, #306 popped up on the weekend at $487/sq ft and #203 was just listed today at $490/sq ft.

Monique Lofts

A cool unit at the Monique Lofts just came on the market, 1505 11th Ave #405 – $599,000, 934 square feet, $641/sq ft. Sadly it is about $100k out of my price range right now.

There are now 3 units on the market at Monique. A smaller unit there is priced at $576/sq ft (21 days on market though I think this got re-listed and has been around much longer) and $682/sq ft (287 days on market). Slow sales at Monique make me wonder about how successful Trace Lofts will be.

Update: Be sure to check out Vlad’s post about why they bought at Monique. I’m curious about which unit he bought since I actually toured a unit there. It was a penthouse north west unit priced around $400,000 for 600 square feet of ‘livable space’. It was a completely crazy unit with two loft areas. One was just completely random with a pul down ladder, the other had a twisting stairway up to a platform which then had a ladder up to the bed which then looked out over top of the city since it was at the top of the freight elevator shaft. For me it was a little far from the bathroom and I couldn’t imagine negotiating that far to a bed when drunk.

Veer Lofts

A penthouse at Veer Lofts hit the market recently at $925,000 for 1,354 square feet ($683/sq ft). Here’s an artist’s rendering of a loft (but not this unit) there:

    Ok…I’m a fan of the industrial loft look…wood ceilings are cool…stainless steel railings etc. but I’m not getting a good feel for the layout of these units.

    The Monique lofts one left me puzzled as to what that little barn door thingy is when I saw the listing earlier today. And the walkway…where is it…Kind of an escher like portrayal of the unit.

    The Veer Loft…The floor plans don’t match the artists rendering at all. Which unit is the rendering of? It would be nice if there were artists renderings of each unit. I’m guess that it wouldn’t cost much more than $.25/sf. Maybe this seller needs to call the person who did the computer rendering of your unit at the Meritage so that the buyer can get a better feeling for the true floor plan.

    You’re right about #304 at the Monique. It was previously listed at $368,000. Looks like it’s been relisted after a price drop.

    Hi Matt —

    I don’t know how many places you toured in the Monique, but if you toured ours this might jog your memory:

    It seems that bunk beds are a staple furnishing in any home. They can do wonders in maximizing the floor space of a very small bedroom. The problem is, if you don't choose the right bunk bed, you may be putting your child's safety at risk. There have been a lot of reports of accidents resulting from improper set up or manufacturing of bunk beds and it always pays to be very careful in selecting one for your children.

    A huge price drop on this unit would be really great for buyers.
