Shop for a Broker
Could the buyer be your neighbor (looking for a combination)? Doesn't hurt to ask and potentially bypass the broker
Unless there is something incredibly differentiated about your place -- which from having several units in the same line sounds like is not the case -- then why would a potential buyer pick your apartment as a "must have" from among the hundreds of thousands that are not on the market and put his broker on the case?
I'd bet dollars to donuts that broker is just phishing, there's no real buyer at the other end, he or she will try to get you to sign an exclusive and then market your place once the "buyer" disappears. BTDT
The broker isn't going to produce the buyer until you agree on a commission. How much that'll be is up to you two to negotiate.
We had a broker send us an unsolicited letter informing us he had a buyer he represented who wanted to purchase our apartment. Our apt is not for sale but quite simply im open if there is an offer i cant refuse. They have not seen the place but there has been several units in the same line which sold recently. Is the broker likely to make me sign something before she brings buyer by to look. Can i have them over, refuse to sign anything, and just structure the contract thereafter. If i find a 3pct commision too high can i just tell them ahead of time..im only willing to give you a 2pct comission on this transaction?
@the-nerve Thank you for your suggestion. While we do show the amount of saves on the listing page, I can see how it would be interesting to show that information in the search results as well. I will make a note for our developers.
Maybe streeteasy should add number of saves to the search function? It might be interesting to see how saves translates to actual sales, time to sell etc. e.g. unit X had 100 saves and was in contract after 25days, unit Y had 200 saves and was in contract after 10 days. It seems like saves would be some kind of indicator, e.g. 100 saves but no sale after 100 days.
Thank you. That's helpful. I realize I need to be on an actual pc (vs device) to see it.
Ooops, sorry. http://imgur.com/K7RAypu
It's right under the SAVE button on the listing page. http://imgur.com/IvVTiQB
Go to Home Depot for pricing fixtures , Colortile for tile
For budget reasons you can budget for a full gut renovation:
Low budget: $100 sq ft- 200sq ft
Med: $200-300 sq ft
Hi $300 and up
Appliance Care will take care of it.
Is there a way to estimate how much it will cost to renote an apartment? If the appliances are not in working order, who pays for the removal?
Whatever happened to this? I'm assuming it was scrapped in the 2008 Crash...
I am looking for recommendations for the shallowest recessed lighting fixture you know of that can only accept CFLs or LEDs (in order to comply with new energy code requirements that I've heard about). I have an 8 foot ceiling but need to add lighting. I'm thinking of dropping the ceiling and/or doing a soffit, but would like to keep the drop to the minimum required. Unfortunately I can't channel through the concrete ceiling slab.
Thanks so much.
litilm: There don't look to be any units for rent in this building: http://streeteasy.com/building/1280-myrtle-avenue-brooklyn
Beware of this property. It is being rented by someone named Jason who claims to be a Broker working with Urban Realty (using Urban Realty stationary) but his license is under investigation and he doesn't work there. He scammed us out of a $500 deposit. While I can't say for sure the landlord is involved, she certainly seemed to know him well.
Communications are managed through someone that represents the landlord. You don't have direct access to the Super. So, it can be a bit difficult to get things fixed if you have that need.
@ Ryan871 Thank you for reaching out about this feature. I have sent you a response through our Help Desk. If you have any questions in the future, please email the Support Team at email@example.com or visit our Help Desk at https://support.streeteasy.com/hc/en-us.
Is it possible to hide listings that don't interest me?
I search using the criteria I want, and see a list or map view of all the apartments that fit that criteria. I click the first one and see I'm not interested... I need to be able to hide that listing so it no longer displays, even if it's within the scope of my search. This is especially crucial for the map view, which I prefer. the little bubbles are all over the place and it's impossible to know which ones I've clicked on or not after a period of searching. Having a simple "hide listing" button would make this process so much better. Interestingly, I see that the mobile app has this feature on certain views, but I don't think it carries over to the regular / desktop site, even if I'm signed in. And of course this doesn't help when searching on the full site. Am I just missing this feature? I would find it weird if it were only on the mobile app... Thanks so much!
Does it matter how old I am?
What happened with this guy: http://streeteasy.com/talk/discussion/24391-broker-referralhow-does-this-work
What floor do you live on?
How old are you?
Can anyone else in the building hear clear footstep noise from upstairs and everything the upstair neighbor is doing, like telephone ring, footsteps rushing to pick up telephone, talking on the phone, talking to other people, tv sound, footsteps with slippers on, and everything else you would expect from a daily life? I am not sure if this is just my apartment or the same for the whole building.
hi, anyone know the latest with the lawsuit?
Yankee Stadium doesn't care if corporate boxes are empty so long as they are paid for. Which is like a lot of new real estate in NYC. Of course the concessionaire doesn't make any money, neither do the local restaurants, shops, or the tax man.
Insane prices at the Prism. One bd apt start at $5100. If you are making $100k a year, you have no chance. $200k/salary is minimum, even then you are cutting coupons. Is this sustainable?
It reminds me of Yankee Stadium and their luxe boxes which were priced just for corporate companies. They became eyesores since they were always empty.
Big landlord or small landlord? For the most part, I think big landlords pay 1 month commission to the broker who brings them a tenant, i.e. No Fee building. Small landlords have their apartment sitting there empty earning no rent for an extra couple months waiting for the broker to find someone who will pay their commission which they charge to the tenant at an even higher rate, unless the owner is smart enough to lower the barriers to renting and pay the marketing commission themselves, i.e. it works out better for the owner to negotiate the 1 month commission directly with the broker when he gives the listing and then to pay it.
"I will list your apartment free to you because the tenant pays my fee, oh and the added benefit is that you know they are qualified because they can write a big check upfront that proves they can throw money away" is actually not in your interests.
At last, who pays the commission for a rental? The owner of the prospective tentant?
Any news on when the building will be complete and start closings?
Has anyone heard recent news on when closings might occur or if they have the TCO for this building yet?
I think you are in the airbnb business now.
Sorry for all the questions: when you say leaving NY / the U.S., are you talking like to Canada or England where we have more common trade, or places like The Republic of Mauritius? http://streeteasy.com/talk/discussion/33006-f-coops
By the way, where is the toilet?
Sorry, I meant to say shower in the kitchen.
I assume from your name that this apartment is in C0lumbia C0unty? In which neighborhood is this apartment with the window in the shower?
prior comments are very out of date. stable building. low turnover. good value. prices reflect adjustment to the market. inventory reflects some estate sales. worth a second look..
Everything in the Sutton area sells, this will have no problem in attracting wealthy buyers. An article about the building appeared in the NY Times real estate section a couple of days ago.
haha nice picture of the entrance
1st ave at 7am---9pm a bit more 'hectic'
awful location right on 1st
Owned an apartment there . This is not a land lease building.
this is a land lease building? that will explain the high maintenance fees... overall nice building/lobby, but a bit of a walk to the north tower (and you can't drag a cart or anything on wheels through easily as there are small stairs that go up and down from the main entrance on south to the north)... prices do seem in line with the neighborhood, but the high maintenance and the long lobby walk and if true, the land lease are deal breakers.
any updates on this, what ever happened to the lawsuit, i heard there were two pending litigations
2172?!? Our DUST will be dust!
The Soldiers/Sailors Club owns the lot. The co-op has the air rights under a lease ending around 2172, with an option to buy the land for $500K.
The club sued the co-op, claiming the original agreement was unfair for various reasons, but has been shot down twice in the courts. The notes to the financials will say whether the Club has appealed again, and what the defense has cost the co-op.
^ ? land lease has nothing to do with ownership structure (co-op or condo)...
Like the area very much - particularly with the recent addition of Whole Foods right there outside your door. But I find the cc's in this building a bit too high, and I happen to detest ugly window mounted A/C units. The building next door (225 East 57) is a post war building (and so admittedly an entirely different feel aesthetically), but the units (particularly the 1 bedrooms) are massive, the cc's are lower, it has central A/C, and it is very well run/managed...
It isn't a land lease building, it's a coop
Is this a land lease building ??
Does anyone know how hard is the board in this building?
Yes, literally on W 63rd. Not related.
This is different from the building on Madison Avenue?
Does anyone have feedback on living at the Ashley at 400 West 63rd for a family? Thanks.
One Irving Realty and Site Realty (aka City Connections) are NOT the on site or exclusive agents for Zeckendorf Towers - they just happen to be agents that live in the building and run their business from their homes. There is NOT an on-site exclusive agent for the building. The condo management doesn't do rentals or sales in the building. MOST brokers charge a 15% fee - so 12% is a good savings. New leases must sign riders agreeing to no smoking (good) and no pets (sad) - condo management will be quick to issue fines if the rules are violated.
I lived in this building for two years and it was fine. Clean, decent staff, great location, nice fitness center, decent pool. I would be happy to live here again but was kind of priced out plus there aren't many (any?) 2brs to rent.
I love the bit about having to take the primary elevator up to the second lobby so you can access your tower elevator. Efficient, especially when you remember that you left your umbrella back in your apartment.
Still amazes me a building half filled with college students goes for what it does. I wonder if newer condos nearby will raise prices or make this look older by comparison.
