Escala Raises Prices Again

Escala, now famous for appearing in 50 Shades of Grey, had previously raised prices at the end of April, and this week moved up prices on a handful of units:

#1802 – $934k to $949k (started at $924k)

#308 – $579k to $589k

#1908 – $799k to $809k (started at $769k)

#902 – $779k to $789k

#702 – $739k to $749k

#1802 – $934k to $949k (started at $929k)

As Escala continues to get closer to selling out (we last checked in with them at the end of April when they were 68% sold out) I expect we’ll continue to see them sneaking up prices a little bit at a time. I’m curious though, for those making offers are they doing any negotiating or standing firm on prices?

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

    They are less willing to negotiate at the higher prices than they were at lower prices.

    There seems to be very little room for negotiations even though the pricess have been raised.
