Manhattan Loft Guy

flipping the dark bedrooms earns 100 Hudson Street loft 20% premium over (near) Peak

Sep. 12, 2013
The “1,025 sq ft” Manhattan loft #3A at 100 Hudson Street that just sold for $1.535mm with some “customized elements” looks a lot like the loft when it sold in June 2008 for $1.283mm with very enthusiastic broker babbling about the kitchen and the

original condition loft at 1 Hudson Street goes well above ask

Aug. 21, 2013
Stop me if you've heard this before: a Manhattan loft that needs pretty much everything sails through the market above ask. That's the story with the "2,000 sq ft" Manhattan loft on the 8th floor at 1 Hudson Street, which came out on March 8 at $2.198mm,

255 Hudson Street loft sells 19% below 2007, after 15 months, 9 prices

Ever get tired of reading about how hot hot hot The Market is? I don’t, but the recent sale of the “1,684 sq ft” Manhattan loft #6A at 255 Hudson Street in “Soho” (I’ve expressed my preference that this little corner be dubbed The Greater Ear

112 Hudson Street loft zooms through market above ask

May. 29, 2013
I can’t tell from my notes and calendar why my buyer client around $1.5mm never got to see the “1,103 sq ft” Manhattan loft in prime Tribeca on the 4th floor at 112 Hudson Street, but the sellers didn’t miss us: the loft came to market on February

you'd have to see 161 Hudson Street loft to hope to know why it sold 53% above 2009, 9% above ask

May. 28, 2013
You only have to toggle back and forth between the 2013 floor plan and the 2009 floor plan for the “2,314 sq ft” Manhattan loft #2B at 161 Hudson Street a few times before you are confident that the structure of the loft has been little changed in the

OYAToMLG talking about post-Peak and square floor plans at 161 Hudson Street

Mar. 18, 2013
Last year on the day of Saint Patrick I was talking about prices post-Peak and a nearly ideal floor loft plan at 161 Hudson Street. In my March 17, 2012, 161 Hudson Street closes off 2.5% since (late) 2007, I noted that the front-end paired sale, 2007-and

Keystone loft at 38 Warren Street sells up 15% in 11 months

Mar. 13, 2013
Here is another one for buyers who are feeling that (their part of) the Manhattan loft world is moving against them: the “1,850 sq ft” Manhattan loft #7C at 38 Warren Street (Keystone Building) could have been purchased for $2.15mm a year ago (it was!

42 Hudson Street loft was a very tight fit to close at $1,474/ft, up a ton

Feb. 26, 2013
The “1,900 sq ft” Manhattan loft on the 2nd floor at 42 Hudson Street that recently sold is a lovely loft overlooking Duane Park (my personal favorite non-water view in Tribeca) that is designed within an inch of its life. Unfortunately for my buyers

love the neighbor on neighbor action, as expensive 55 Hudson Street loft wall should come down soon

Dec. 29, 2012
The folks who just bought the “1,000 sq ft” Manhattan loft #7C at 55 Hudson Street for $1.5mm live next door in #7D, which is why I expect the wall between these two lofts to come down soon. That nice round number purchase comes to $1,500/ft (d’oh),

nice pics help sell underwhelming 77 Hudson Street loft at $1,089/ft in prime Tribeca

Nov. 13, 2012
The listing photos for the “1,711 sq ft” Manhattan loft on the 5th floor at 77 Hudson Street show a loft with some “classic” elements, as advertised (chiefly, the truly massive columns and beams, less so the large living room windows). As you have

10 months + 4 price drops to contract for 124 Hudson Street loft to sell 16% over 2007 but only off 5% from original ask

Oct. 9, 2012
The folks who bought the “2,057 sq ft” Manhattan loft #4B at 124 Hudson Street in April 2007 just sold it for a gain of %. That’s nice work. Weird thing is that it took a while to get there, with the asking price dropping from $3.3mm down to $3.05mm

flip city: 99 Reade Street loft sold in 2011 sells again, up 4%

Sep. 21, 2012
Some people might look at the September 4 sale of the “1,576 sq ft” Manhattan loft #5W at 99 Reade Street (Reade Court) for $2mm and see that the big news is that it sold at that round number 15 months after being purchased for $1.925mm; really close

100% reno + 24k gold = 27% over 2008 for 16 Hudson Street loft

Jul. 2, 2012
The broker babble for the “1,550 sq ft” Manhattan loft #4B at 16 Hudson Street is just one step shy of babble-porn, with the claim of that it was “100% renovated” and a staggering list of proper proper names and materials, including at least one y

telltale $9 shows bidding war for 100 Hudson Street loft

May. 15, 2012
The fact that the “1,080 sq ft” Manhattan loft #8E at 100 Hudson Street recently sold with the last digit being “9” tells you that the loft almost certainly sold after a bidding war; that the clearing price is higher than the ask tells confirms it

truly "one of a kind" bathroom sells for $2.35mm, loft at 56 Warren Street comes with it

Apr. 27, 2012
Forgive me, but the question that lingers longest in my mind after seeing that the “2,200 sq ft” Manhattan loft #5E at 56 Warren Street just sold for $2.35mm, is how did they take that bathroom picture without the photographer being reflected in the m

"great bones" 100 Hudson Street loft sells above where it "should" have

Apr. 20, 2012
Apparently The Market thinks that the difference between “1,100 sq ft” of “great bones” and “1,100 sq ft” of “meticulous renovation” and “superb craftsmanship” is $92,500 in Tribeca. I’d have thought it would be more, as you’d pay

195 Hudson Street loft takes deep haircut to close up 385% (since last century)

Apr. 9, 2012
Since the “2,325 sq ft” Manhattan loft #3D at 195 Hudson Street recently sold at $2.85mm after having been asking $3.5mm, you have to wonder just how low that negotiation started. A negotiated discount of 18.6% implies an opening bid that would be con

124 Hudson Street loft finally sells, above nearby comp but below 2006

Mar. 26, 2012
To look at the most obviously relevant data on StreetEasy regarding the recent sale of the “3,217 sq ft” Manhattan loft #5C at 124 Hudson Street, you’d think the sellers did fairly well. After all, the clearing price of $5mm computes to $1,554/ft, w

love it or hate it? glass master bath sells at 181 Hudson Street loft

Mar. 22, 2012
Sometimes I wonder if I get attracted (or, distracted) by the same things in a listing that people who do not look at Manhattan lofts for a living notice. For the recent sale of the “1,898 sq ft” Manhattan loft #3F at 181 Hudson Street, it might be th

161 Hudson Street closes off 2.5% since (late) 2007

Mar. 17, 2012
Regular readers of Manhattan Loft Guy know that I am enamored of the power (well, potential) of the Master List of Manhattan Lofts Sold Since November 2008, and that one of my favorite uses to date was to use paired resales to assess the relative strength
