We haven't seen many newly constructed Echo Park Condos so the developers of the Sunset Five condo complex probably expected them to fly off the shelf. You many have read my post about the Sunset Five condos in Echo Park. I thought the units were over priced when they first came on the market, and 4 months later my opinion has not changed. Below is a chart of the Sunset Five Echo Park Condos showing their relative size and price changes since they came on the market in October of 2009.
As you can see from the last column, the price reductions have not been significant. These units were originally listed with Furstenberg Realty. From what I can see, there was nothing wrong with the agent or his marketing. Like so many sellers, the developer failed to see that the "problem" is NOT the listing agent, but the price. These Echo Park Condos were relisted just days ago with Deasy Penner & Partners as if listing the units with an agent that "specializes" in architectural properties will really convince buyers to pay more than they should! In my opinion, it's just another example of sellers having an inflated opinion of the value of their property. Don't get me wrong, Echo Park is a great place to live but this complex is not like the Sunset Silver Lake lofts with their great locations within walking distance of Sunset Junction and The Cheese Store of Silver Lake. These Echo Park condos are surrounded by some pretty shabby looking homes with a bus stop right in front. Sure, this section of Sunset Blvd may someday be the place for all things hip but you may have to wait a while.
