On The Market: Too Hot To Trot in Tribeca

New, 31 comments

When is the "best and final" gambit to sell an apartment not really best, or final? For the answer to this brain-teaser, we turn to an email in our inbox from the broker representing Penthouse B at Tribeca's 55 White Street. (Background on the place: the 2,063-square-foot three-bedroom is listed at $2.95 million, down from the $4 million it was originally listed at in—cue ominous music—August 2008.) Under the terms of the "best and final" offering, it can be yours for a minimum bid of $2.6 million—an opportunity that was supposed to be best'd and final'd already but wasn't because—well, let's just let the broker explain: "Due to the heat wave this past Sunday we have extended the 'Best & Highest' bid until 6:00pm Monday, May 4, 2009." Pray for rain!
