Every once in a while we take a look at the listings that are for sale by owner throughout the city. When we last scoped out the market in September, the FSBO scene was running a little dry. Today, there's an abundance of properties on the market from good to bad to ugly. With these ten we attempt to bring you some of the most promising up for grabs right now.
Above, this 825-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in a limestone mansion in the Clinton Hill historic district at 269 Clinton Avenue is asking $695,000. The kitchen's been recently updated and although there is no in-unit washer/dryer, there's a common facility for the building. The building has dedicated bike storage and the unit comes with an extra storage space. The building also has a common backyard and is pet friendly.
This one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo in Murray Hill's The Charleston at 225 East 34th Street looks new, tidy, and practical. The unit itself is a decent 814-square-feet, and comes with a 131-square-foot terrace that's accessible from both the living room and the bedroom, an in-unit washer/dryer, a separate walk-in shower, and a deeded separate storage space in the basement. The $1.15 million price tag also affords access to the building's gym and requisite zen garden.
This two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom co-op apartment in Midtown West at 150 W. 55th Street #7A is looking for $885,000. Despite missing pictures of the 1,200-square-foot unit's one-and-a-half bathrooms, viewers can rest assured that the kitchen is up to snuff with a recent overhaul. Bonus: tons of closets (a walk-in in the master), and those two chandeliers.
This 21st-floor Tribeca apartment in the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed 101 Warren Street wants $3.49 million. This two-bedroom unit has an open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling north-facing windows and walnut hardwood floors throughout. The apartment also has a washer/dryer and lots of storage.
This sale isn't just for an apartment, but the whole building at 276 Grand Street between Forsyth and Eldridge streets. With its Lower East Side location and an ask of $13 million, we're pretty flabbergasted. This five-story walk-up with ground floor retail has eight apartments which were nicely staged for what listing photos there are.
The owner at 54 East 1st Street wants $650,000 for their 500-square-foot one-bedroom apartment in the East Village. The unit was recently fully renovated with kitchen and bathroom upgrades that include Icestone countertops and glass shower enclosure, and refinished wood floors. The living room overlooks an interior courtyard.
This Flushing single-family detached home with a red roof and landscaped gardens wants $915,000. The five-bedroom, four-bathroom home measures 2,290-square-feet, with a detached garage, driveway, and backyard bumping the whole property square-footage to 4,000. The interiors could use some renovation, but with some of the house's original details in tact like the banister and wood floor, the home's potential ekes through. You feel me, Novogratzses?
The owners of this three-bedroom, two bathroom condo at 650 Bergen Street are asking $1.6 million. All 1,555-square-feet of the Prospect Heights apartment seem well appointed, from the Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen to the double-pane windows and recessed lighting throughout. The master bathroom has radiant heat flooring for all these cold winter mornings. There is in-unit laundry and a sweet outdoor space. Please someone, snatch this up. It's been sitting on the market for 106 days.
The sellers of this Windsor Terrace house at 709 Greenwood Avenue want you to know how truly homey it is, from the festive Christmas tree to the enchanting fireplace. This seven-bedroom, three-bathroom multi-family home wants $1.695 million for its 3,400-square-feet. The building has a finished basement and wood floors throughout. There is a backyard where there's room for improvement. Perhaps that lounging dog comes with the home too.
This Upper East Side one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom at Casa 74 wants $1.9 million. The 951-square-foot condo at 255 East 74th Street was used as a pied-e-terre by the current owner, who claims that the kitchen and the appliances were "never, ever used." The ten-foot floor-to-ceiling windows look westward. The building has direct access into its flagship commercial space, an Equinox, which gives discounted rates to building residences. The owner is willing to sell the unit furnished for an additional $250,000.
