From the ad:
“Time is of the essence! Rush & make an offer!”
Why the fire sale?
It’s called a “short sale,” which is to say that the bank is handling it. The seller bought at an “unrealistic price” and needs out, says Gilbert.
“If I had a million dollars and wanted to be in the area, I’d buy this,” says Jim Lanfranchi of Archer Meade Appraisals, a Manhattan residential specialist.
In 2007, it would’ve gone for: $1.8 million.
