Former Seventeen magazine editor and CosmoGirl co-founder Atoosa Rubenstein has decided to sell her ridiculously beautiful three-bedroom loft in the Flatiron — see for yourself in this 2010 New York Observer slideshow — for $3.995 million through Corcoran broker Noble Black. It's about 20 percent more than what she paid back in 2007; it cost her $3.105 million. The posh condominium, built by Extell (they of the behemoth residential tower rising on 57th Street) appears drama-free, with no complaints filed against it at the Department of Buildings and no residents behind on the monthly fees. Real-estate snoopers take note: All this info on her condo building is in one place now that Streeteasy has redesigned its listing pages.
As of today, each listing and building will detail past sales or rental history, as well as DOB records and other public information (read: dirt). (A new tool also tells you which apartments are facing imminent property tax hikes — in Williamsburg alone, there are 57 listings that have tax abatements expiring three or more years from now.) You can find out if someone in your building just paid off their entire mortgage — but not how (pity) — or if that woman upstairs finally decided to sell and you can now pounce and create the duplex of your dreams.
In fact, says Streeteasy’s Sofia Song, you can track a property whether it’s on the market or not simply by creating an alert. For the record, someone owes $19,386.22 for unpaid common charges since last fall at 15 Central Park West.
