The Whitman: Because I care

In case you missed it, I'm letting you know The Whitman is cutting prices by $15,000 on its remaining condos. Parking is included.

Update [August 7, 2007]: I just checked the District's real property assessment database. As of today, 37 units have not been deeded to someone other than the developer, i.e., they're either unsold or the deed hasn't been recorded in the new owner's name yet. One could interpret this to mean that 37 of the 182 units built [20% of the total] are still for sale. I'm just saying...

Amusing: "Thanks to the overwhelming response... The Whitman is offering a closeout incentive of $15,000", and parking is free? So, demand is so hot for these units, they're slashing prices? Makes sense, that's how it worked two years ago when buyer's were significantly overbidding asking prices; wait a minute...

Keith-

Is the blog contact email address correct? Just tried to forward you an email, and had it bounce back with a "UNKNOWN_USER: No such user" error.

Was trying to forward an email I received from McWilliams Ballard about The Whitman's "overwhelming response" $15,000 discount I received way back on June 14th. Two months of discounts and the units are still on the market. They're practically flying off the shelves!

You're right, I'd entered the email address incorrectly. I've corrected the error.

It is:

[You gotta "love" the spammers for making me go through these typing contortions.]

Well, remember that The Whitman is under massive pricing pressure by The Grant, which is undercutting The Whitman in quality and design for more money.

The Whitman must be making it up in VOLUME!
