Summer Drubbin'?

The Post speaks with a small group of brokers to get their take on the summer sales season, and most say it actually wasn't as bad as they thought it would be. But here's some interesting intel: "Over the summer, 'transactions that sold above asking price were 10 percent,' says Prudential Douglas Elliman's Lisa Maysonet. 'At asking price were 26 percent. Below asking price were 64 percent.' If you're a buyer, it's a time to bid low. And perks like rooftop cabanas or parking spots can be negotiated into transactions." [NYP]
