Buyer Decides to Test the Trump Soho Resale Market

New, 37 comments

We've heard plenty about the Trump Soho buyers who are trying to get out of their contracts. They've filed a lawsuit over the condo-hotel's alleged fraudulent behavior, and if they drop the legal case, Team Trump has promised them some money back. But what of the handful of Trump Soho buyers who decided to go through with their deals? Are they pleased with their purchases? Well, one anonymous Trump Soho buyer has decided it's time to check out.

Two studios have just hit the market through the same Elliman broker, and both were purchased by an LLC with the same address, leading us to believe that both apartments are owned by the same person. First up is #3002, which was purchased for $1,084,305 in September and is now on the market for $1,214,000, a 12% increase.

Then there's #3111, bought for $1,181,944 and now asking $1,340,000, a 13% bump. Not the craziest flip attempts in the world, just a seller trying to save face, it seems. Please avert your eyes from the monthly carrying costs, and remember, there's all that rental revenue flooding in! Condo-hotels: the wave of the future!

With hundreds of unsold sponsor units left in the building, it might be difficult to make these stand out?unless you've got superb brokerbabble like the following:
