Take Two (And Big Cuts) For Thirty-Four At 188 King
If you've been plugged-in since 2006 should know the full saga of 188 King. Now three years later, the rented units (34 of 44) "are being converted back to condominiums in a phased manner" according to The Polaris Group.

37% in three years! At this rate, by 2016, woo hoo, houses will be free!

the sky must be falling as the wishing price is now down to $808/sq ft.

And should have been $2.305M inflation adjusted, so 41% down in real terms. What were they thinking with that original price?
But the fact that this is mostly a renter-occupied condo building can't be good for values, right? The prior post also alludes to problems with financing.

They can't be serious about selling it with those photos. Really - a close up of the stove? Another close up of the floor?

The photos of the space make this unit look big. The "at this rate" comment is strange. Corrections move sharply at first, then much more slowly later. Movement is neither linear nor unbounded, but approaches a point where excesses are shed.

After three months on the market at $1,350,000 the listing for 188 King #604 has been withdrawn from the MLS without a sale. Once again, orignially priced at $2,150,000 in May 2006.
