Yesterday, we asked you to come up with a listing price for a 6th-floor 1-bedroom walkup on the edge of civilization. Today, we reveal the answer.
Early bidders came in high, only to be significantly undercut by the evening crowd, which cried foul on the stair-climbing and the east Alphabet City locale (see, e.g., "It's almost impossible to find somewhere further away from the subway than this."). Nobody hit the price on the nose, but two came in just $4k short. Way to go, "wildedge" and "John is renting until '08"'s wife ("My wife says $455K but I think $419K is the magic number..."). Proceed directly to brokerage school.
