How much does it cost to use a broker when buying an apartment in Dumbo? Apparently somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000. Remember the For Sale By Owner apartment, One Main Dumbo, with the cool website that we profiled a few weeks back? Seems like the owners have decided to enlist the help of seasoned professionals, as the apartment is now listed with both Triumph Properties and HH Realty. The goofy thing is, each listing has a different price: the seller is asking $899k on their FSBO website, HH Realty has a price of $926k and Triumph Properties lists the property at $952k. Obviously the latter two listings include commissions. I'm no genius, but if I were interested in buying this apartment I think I know where I'd go first.
