The Price: $550,000

The median asking price for a home in Morningside Heights was $1.1 million in December 2021, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at exactly half the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Buyers who stick with the 20% minimum down payment of $110,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,225. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,964 and a maintenance fee of $1,291.

Why You’ll Love It…

Located on the 8th floor of a building in Morningside Gardens, this 1BR unit has space for days. The rooms are enormous, plus the apartment has an enclosed terrace — the dream for many New Yorkers. Oh, and there are seven, yes, seven closets — talk about storage galore!

Semi-open to the living room, the kitchen features ample cabinetry, a substantial double-doored fridge, stainless steel countertops, and a dishwasher. Step out from the kitchen into the main living area. The space is drenched in light thanks to its sizeable, floor-to-ceiling windows. The bedroom is large enough for a king-sized bed and features the same hardwood floors found throughout the apartment.

Morningside Gardens includes a shared laundry room, 24/7 security, daycare facility, playground, and a fitness center. Plus, it’s only a couple of blocks from the 1 train and Riverside Park. Morningside Park and Columbia University are also just down the street.

… And Why You Might Not

The bathroom in this apartment could use an update. The square yellow tile appears to be vintage and it might not appeal to all buyers. Plus, the pedestal sink doesn’t provide any storage.

The good news, the rest of this Morningside Heights 1BR is sure to check off most of your boxes.
