Coming Up Short: Grand Madison is Latest 'Sale' Opportunity

New, 47 comments

The "short sale" bug that bit Williamsburg's Schaefer Landing hard is now infecting hosts on the other side of the river (curse you, L-riding carriers!). We direct your bargain-hunting attention to this Bond New York listing for a 1.5BR (err, OK), 2BA unit at 225 Fifth Avenue, otherwise known as the Madison Square Park-area luxury condo conversion the Grand Madison. The listing shows the symptoms: *****Short Sale Opportunity***** screams the headline. Below: "Priced to sell!! Make crazy offers!!" However, please note that the distressed asking price is still $1.15 million, a fact not lost on StreetEasy message boarders trying to make sense of it. Says one, "I assume it's going for around $1k/foot (maybe less). Street easy says previous listings went for average of $1500/foot and last blding comp went for $1270, so looks like its coming at a fair discount."
