Manhattan Loft Guy

buyers with cold nerves sell 4 West 21 Street loft at 51% gain

Sep. 20, 2013
Let’s take another spin at a wheel I mentioned on Wednesday (September 18, masterpiece designed since 2009, 60 West 15 Street loft doubles in value) about the favorable resale position of 2013 sellers who bucked the trend in the overall Manhattan resid

extortion or neighborly consideration 505 Greenwich Street loft? you decide

Jun. 7, 2013
Categorized in: Loft neighborhoods / SoHo
You won’t find a listing associated with the deed recently filed on the May 13 sale of the “979 sq ft” Manhattan loft #12C at 505 Greenwich Street because it was a private transaction. The sale price is a funny number, but not only because it is dec

99 John Street loft sale is the very picture of motivation in a difficult environment

Mar. 15, 2013
I find listing histories like that of the “677 sq ft” Manhattan mini-loft #1704 at 99 John Street (99 John Deco Lofts) fascinating. Sometimes a listing history reveals patience (which can border on stubbornness); sometimes hubris (or its opposite, mod

small 250 Mercer Street loft sale suggests seller got great deal in 2011

Mar. 12, 2013
I am 98% certain that if you look at the 2012 listing photos for the “850 sq ft” Manhattan loft #A301 at 250 Mercer Street you will find that this mini-loft just sold in the same condition, with the same finishes and “elegant mint condition” as in

119 Chambers Street loft with roof view discovers its clearing price, eventually

Feb. 22, 2013
The listing photos in support of the recent sale of the “2,236 sq ft” Manhattan loft on the 4th floor at 119 Chambers Street don’t lie: that is the Gehry building and that is the Woolworth Building, in each case artfully framed with a window (pix #

712 Broadway loft sellers are the very model of modern motivated sellers (and unhappy flippers)

Feb. 21, 2013
Because it can be hard to track sales by units in the 2-building coop that includes 712 Broadway and 714 Broadway, there is no sales price associated with the StreetEasy listing for the “2,825 sq ft” Manhattan loft on the 3rd floor at 712 Broadway, bu

22 Warren Street loft seller paints a portrait of motivation

Mar. 10, 2012
Maybe the winner of the Oscar for Most Motivated Buyer would have dropped in another price or two, but 4 price drops in 9 weeks looks to me like at least an performance worth a nomination by the sellers of the “1,800 sq ft” Manhattan loft on the 4th f

270 Broadway loft sellers prove to be quite flexible

Nov. 1, 2011
I don’t know enough about yoga to pun well (as you are about to find out), but the quite flexible sellers of the “2,554 sq ft” Manhattan loft #21B at 270 Broadway (Tower 270) had to be flexible to get a deal: they started the most recent marketing c

tired of pi**ing into the wind, 130 West 30 Street loft sellers take money, run

Aug. 12, 2011
Although the sellers of the Manhattan loft #12C at 130 West 30 Street (the Cass Gilbert) tried to sell around $2mm in 2006 and again in the post-Lehman market into 2009 at $1.8mm, I would not call them stubborn so much as hopeful when they brought the lof

fun, fun, fun as motivated seller at 25 Houston finds buyer

The Manhattan loft #2C at 25 Houston Street is in contract as of Thursday after a brief but passionate marketing campaign that centered on how much fun (!!!) one could have here.

market doldrums at 36 W 15 / selling an old listing

Jul. 7, 2007
is the market punishing this loft as too old? I recently stumbled across this listing on the 2d floor at 36 West 15th Street, which I hadn’t seen since January. Yikes! Still out there. I... [Read More]
