Contrary to popular belief, Manhattan real estate is not going on vacation this summer. At least not before some of these great new properties hit the market and get snatched up quickly due to their location and superior features.
My newest listing at 501 West 138th Street, #43 in Hamilton Heights had recently been transformed by my sellers from an estate wreck into a magnificent, loft-style space. Overlooking the Gothic architecture of City College of New York–“the Harvard of the Proletariat,” which is directly across the street–it features a reconfigured open floor plan, crafted for today’s modern living, without giving up its prewar charm. The apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, as well as a beautiful California-style kitchen with all the high-end finishes you’d expect to find in new construction.
With an asking price of $620,000 and maintenance under $1,000 a month, this listing is priced to sell quickly. Call or text me at 917-992-5350 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: an extensive bidding war ensued, and this unit now has a contract out–with a purchase price that exceeds the asking price. Buyer and seller are both ecstatic! These are the kinds of results you can expect when seller and broker work together and set realistic expectations for the current market, and price appropriately.
