Trace Lofts or Trace North?

This past week two good looking places came up at 12th and Madison. Both priced below what they sold for brand new in 2008.

The first, is a penthouse unit at Trace North featuring a custom built staircase to a loft area. Priced at $350,000 it is 726 square feet. Downside is, no view. It looks into the Citizen Apartments next door. This place sold brand new in 2008 for $384. You can check it out this Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 pm.

After 3 days on Redfin it is at 187 views and 10 favorites.

Or you have a unit in Trace Lofts to the south (you’d be my neighbor!). Unit #402 has a terrace and killer west views. $489,500 for 820 square feet. This place sold brand new in 2008 for $515k.

After 3 days on Redfin it is at 184 views and 7 favorites.

Sure wish the listing agent had posted larger photos!

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.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    Both of the above unit or loft are interested and kindly let me know who I can get in touch with for it to discuss.
    I am looking forward to seeing it and talking about it for sale
