Triple Assessment

Four months after the owners put this two-bedroom co-op up for sale, it’s still a wallflower. Our panelists gave it a thumbs-up for grace without stuffiness, and they all say the price is more or less right. So why won’t it sell?

2 Beekman Place, Apartment 5E
Asking price: $1.195 million.
Maintenance: $2,255 per month.
Broker: Jolanta Zonca, Fox Residential.

Karen Kelley, the Corcoran Group: “It’s very tasteful—they did a good renovation,” Kelley says. “[Still] when you get out of the elevator, the hallways are subpar.” She adds that the 50 percent down payment could be a big problem: “You’ll need a cash buyer.”
Her assessment: $1.2 million.

Sharon Rosenberg, Century 21 NY Metro: Rosenberg calls the space “visually appealing … It shows well. When I came in, I felt comfortable.” Problems? “The bedrooms are a challenge. They look small to me.”
Her assessment: $1.25 million.

Richard Silverman, Bellmarc: “I love the location—it’s a sophisticated part of the city,” Silverman says. “[However] it’s not a view apartment. Even though it has side views of the East River, it faces an office building.”
His assessment: $1.295 million.
