What Is Your Apartment Worth?
There are on-line databases and classified ads (NYTimes.com) where you can search for apartments on the market and even get prices of past sales, but there is no substitute for a good real estate broker’s experience when you are ready to price your apartment. The listings you see are, after all, advertisements, and only tell you the good features. Actual closing prices are difficult to find. Square footage has become almost a subjective figure because there are many different ways to measure a space. We recommend the following:
- a list of comparable, recently closed sales
- a list of comparable apartments for sale (with size, maintenance, views, condition, other amenities).
- professional observations on how to best present your apartment to prospective buyers
- an evaluation of your apartment’s worth based on this information and our years of experience in marketing and selling in the New York City market. We do not set inflated prices to lure a seller into signing an exclusive.
