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.
A 32nd floor One Beacon Court condo hit the market a few days ago for $14,000,000 (or $50,000/month, if you want to rent it.) The 2,500-square-foot 3BR belongs to businessman James Dahl, who purchased it in 2005 for a mere $5,498,550 (39% of its current ask.) All of that is pretty noteworthy in and of itself, but as an added bonus, Dahl has listed the place with two different brokerages, and that leads us to ask the question: Who Listed It Better?
|The Windows||"A gracious foyer and gallery open onto the expansive living room and dining room with floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows and the same incredible light and most spectacular views of Central Park, the City and the Hudson River."||"Lined with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, this 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom unit enjoys dazzling natural light exposure in every room."|
|The Prestige||"Located in one of Manhattan's most elegant and desirable buildings, this spacious three bedroom apartment is now available for resale for the first time. The apartment is one of only a handful in the entire building with coveted, private outdoor space."||"Beyond the impressive panoramic views, this unit is located in one of Manhattan's hottest condominiums, One Beacon Court."|
|Entertaining||"Whether a tete a tete for two, a sit down dinner for ten or a cocktail party for fifty or more, this residence will easily accommodate all of your entertaining needs."||"much more!"|
At no point was this contest remotely close. Even Halstead's listing photos are far superior, as Peter*Ashe neglected to turn the lights on (but did not neglect to emblazon a huge Peter*Ashe logo in the middle of every picture.) Halstead takes it.
