The two available listings at one of my favorite buildings are now under contract and it looks like The Waterview in Rosslyn has nothing available for the first time in the building’s history. Or so it would seem. This trend is indicative of the market in general. Where once buyers had their pick of several units at competing buildings, inventory is so low that many buildings are indeed “sold out” and those that aren’t don’t have the desirable inventory options they once had. The better the unit, the harder it is to find on both sides of the river. Even the massive penthouse that languished on the market for many months landed in a bidding war as buyers realized the party was over and had to jump to acquire it when the first offer came in. The result? A cash sale $250,000 over list price that closed in 10 days. It doesn’t pay to wait!
