Welcome to our new feature where we take a co-exclusive listing (an apartment listed by two brokers from different agencies) and ask the question: Who Listed It Better? Send any tips in to the tipline.
This Kips Bay townhouse has been on the market for three months now, but despite that it actually looks very nice. It's just waiting for the right buyer, specifically a buyer that wants to have a doctor's office in the basement. That might seem like a drawback, but think about it this way: Free tongue depressors all day. Anyway, the owner decide to double his chances by listing the place with two brokers, so Who Listed It Better?
|The Duplex||"The duplex has two bedrooms, living room with wood-burning fireplace, light- filled den in the extension, dining area and windowed kitchen. Both bedrooms have en suite baths."||"Second floor is the owner’s duplex, sunny kitchen. powder room, living room with WBFP and den extension. Third floor of the owner’s duplex has 2 bedrooms with leafy views and 2 nicely appointed baths."|
|The Overview||"Set on a quiet, tree-lined street, the 21' wide townhouse has light and space, elegance and grace."||"The house is 21X45 with a 3 story extension. The lot is 99’ deep."|
|The Garden||"There is a lovely south-facing planted garden, with flowering dogwood, gardens on either side and peace and quiet."||"Garden."|
Even though we spend a fair amount of time making fun of brokers' use of adjectives, that doesn't mean we want them to eschew description altogether. Elliman, don't be afraid of a little salesmanship! That street is tree-lined! The garden is lovely! Stevens takes this one in a landslide.
