MuseumTowers 1187sf 1 bed with home office. Tale of Two Units. 2.175 vs 2.5m. Thoughts?

So there’s one unit on the 19th floor for 2.175M and the identical layout on the 37th floor for 2.5m at Museum Towers next to MoMa on 53rd street. Naturally the 37th floor has better views, but it also has sleeker, minimalist, modern, 100% sexier interior design. Ignoring the views for now, how do you rate the difference between apartments, is the 2.5M *gasp* underpriced, the 2.175M vastly overpriced, or do you think the 2.175 is a theoretical deal for someone with more traditional taste?

Put your Parker Brother Billionaire Hat on and think about a Monopoly Mortgage. Just Curious.

For those in the know. 1186 sf for 800k. Modern keyed elevator Luxury… on Classon Ave??? Yup!

So if you know me at all, you know I don’t like to pay full price for Macy’s brand Made in China type wears. To be honest, I don’t even buy Made in Italy unless it’s like 65% off.

Well, this condo is on Classon and Myrtle, so it’s really not ideal for someone that is new to BK (aka, no busses, no G train). What it is, is 1186sf of Modern West Chelsea style Loft goodness, keyed elevator and all that for half the price. See what I did there?

So if you are a Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy Veteran, or maybe even a Bo/Co/Ca dweller looking to own a piece of the thoroughest Borough, check this out!

What do you want? An unlikely real estate lesson from a Fantasy Football Sports Journalist.

X521Once you run your criteria the market shrinks immensely.
Falling in love with something out of your budget is potentially damning.
Not everybody is motivated purely by financial gain.

 

“I know the price. That’s not what I’m asking. What does he want?

It was a few years ago and, newly engaged, my soon-to-be wife and I were looking for a new home. Having bought (and then sold) two different houses in Los Angeles, I knew one thing for certain: It takes forever. Days upon days of driving around neighborhoods; silently judging potential neighbors; going through strangers’ homes and saying things like, “Well, we’d have to gut the bathroom” or “Come on honey, that big giant moose head is cool”; having potential neighbors silently judging you back … it’s a seemingly endless process that qualifies somewhere between “brutal” and “soul-crushing.”

I was prepared for the worst.

Our realtor, however, quickly shrugged off our concerns. It’ll take an hour. An hour? Yes, he said, an hour. As he pointed out, we had pretty specific parameters: we had my three soon-to-be stepsons to think about, so we needed a house that not only had room for them, but was near their father and didn’t require them to change school systems.

“How many homes do you think are in this city? There’s fewer than 19,000 houses in town, no one is selling because of the economy … there are exactly five, count ‘em, five houses that meet your criteria and price range,” he’d told us.

Could it be that easy? I am the questioning sort, always have been, so I did what I always do (and somehow have managed to make a living doing): I went to my computer and started researching.

He was right. There were five.

But then there was this sixth house that met all of our criteria but had no price listed. And even better, it had been on the market for two years. Maybe they were lowering the price? I asked my realtor about it and he said, yeah … that house is way out of your price range. With three kids, a wife and potentially more kids on the way, price range was very important to us. We have a lot of college to pay for. But I said, “Let’s look at it anyway. You never know.”
…..

When buying a house, the most common question is “What’s the price?” And, if it’s been on the market for a while, it’s “what’s wrong with it?” Those weren’t the questions I asked, because those weren’t the right questions.
