A sampling of last week’s press coverage of CORE and CORE properties.
“On the Market”
New York Magazine
One Murray Park is featured in a roundup of 12 condos available for sale in new developments throughout the five boroughs. After reaching 64% in contract in mid-September, this Long Island City development has drawn residents in with amenities that include a residents’ library, a large common rooftop with open views, a fitness center and indoor parking.
“Postwar, Prewar and Everything Before”
The New York Times
The terms prewar and postwar are commonly used in New York City real estate, and CORE brokers Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon aren’t strangers in using either of them. Both weigh in on the different charms of prewar and postwar apartments in a piece that touches on everything from building details and layouts, to amenities and actual building ages.
New York Post
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s recent sale of a full-floor loft at 77 Hudson Street made it into the New York Post’s roundup of recent sales across the region. Featuring a key-locked elevator and approximately 1,700-square feet, this loft sold for $1,862,500.
It seems that every media outlet’s real estate section has been consistent with covering multi, multi-million dollar properties lately. Continuing that trend is the New York Post, which launched their new luxury section, Alexa yesterday. This finely curated broadsheet “showcas[es] the most exclusive real estate for sale in and around the city.” CORE Managing Director, Emily Beare, is not unfamiliar with the world of ultra-high-end properties so it’s no surprise she was interviewed for her listing at 15 Central Park West. Additionally, the floor plans for the home were featured in a separate story with in the publication. Although we already released the floor plan to this amazing combination unit on the CORE Blog, the New York Post took there coverage a step further and included highlights from each room. See their detailed floor plan below complete with insider tips.
The skies are grey, the real estate market is cloudy, and the unpredictability of both has never been more apparent. The New York Post’s Katherine Dykstra wrote a story today that featured apartments with outdoor space. Will this will clear the air and give us hope for brighter days ahead?
I still contend that THIS IS THE TIME TO BUY! I say this not because I own a brokerage that relies on transactions, but because of the fundamentals underlying the opportunity for buyers and their ability to transact.
Let’s see what happens.
