Greenwich Village NY Condos buyers MUST READ

Have you been looking for a condominium for sale in the Greenwich Village neighborhood in New York City? If you have been looking for a Greenwich Village NY Condo than you have probably been seeing a couple of market activities happening quite consistently:

1. Multiple Offers on 1 Bedroom Greenwich Village Condos for sale. I have been working with multiple customer’s looking in the 1 Bedroom Condo market. If a newly renovated full time doorman 1 bedroom condo has come on the market for less than $1,000,000, the first open house is packed and multiple offers come in shortly. Most of the offers are cash, or non-mortgage contingent at or near the asking price.  

2. Almost no inventory for Greenwich Village apartments less than $600,000. The studio or alcove studio condominium market in not only Greenwich Village, but in the East Village or the West Village is quite limited. After a couple of afternoons you can see everything that is available. The well priced apartments are selling quickly and the apartments with more aspirational pricing are even getting more interest. This time of year see’s an influx of demand and the low supply creates an atmosphere where the best Greenwich Village condos for sale are moving quickly.

3. Greenwich Village Pre-War condo inventory is scarce. Building’s like 59 West 12th Street, 2 Cornelia Street, 115 Fourth Ave, 45 Christopher St, 299 and 302 West 12th St, The American Felt Building have very little inventory. The Bing and Bing Emery Roth designed pre-war condos are always desired and when priced well sell quickly. The unique apartments, such as duplexes, apartments with open views, recently renovated, don’t sit on the market quickly.

4. Larger Apartments Inventory Limited. In my database I see 12 Two Bedroom Condos for Sale in Greenwich Village right now, 10 Three Bedroom Condos for Sale in Greenwich Village and 4 Four Bedroom Condos or Larger in Greenwich Village. If you are entering this segment of the market, you will probably expand your search to the West Village, parts of the East Village and parts of Chelsea, but you will still have a small number of apartments to view.

Overall, the spring and early summer real estate market for condos for sale in Greenwich Village has been quite robust with multiple offers for apartments priced effectively for their individual part of the market. One Bedroom Condos in Doorman buildings have seen a lot of interest.

Manhattan NY Condos FAQ: Are the Manhattan New York condo Pet Friendly?

Manhattan NY Condos FAQ: Are the Manhattan New York condo Pet Friendly?

One of the most common questions we receive is regarding the pet policy in a condominium building.

The answer is that every building has a different pet policy. Most buildings will allow pets, but will have specific guidelines that outline if they allow both cats and dogs and the size and quantity of each.  Aggressive breeds of dogs are usually prohibited.

In Manhattan New York; if you have larger dogs(50 lbs+) there are only several buildings that will  be available to you. Some buildings do not allow any pets at all, but when you visit the building you will see some unit owners coming in and out of the building with their dogs.

This is typically because those pets had a “grandfather clause” and were already in the building prior to the most recent decision to change the pet policy in the building.

In looking to buy Manhattan New York condos, it’s very important to ask about a building’s pet policy before you start looking at apartments because a pet policy is not something that will be amended to your specific situation.  Unless the pet is a service pet that is required, no matter how much you like an apartment if the building has a strict no pet policy there is not much you can do to change it.

In Manhattan New York, most buildings will require you to use separate elevators and you must notify the building of the type of animal that you are have.  This is typically because of insurance reasons, but depends on building to building.

If you are looking at purchasing a Manhattan condominium and will be bringing your pet to the apartment even if its for just a few days a week, month or year let us know what type of pet and how many you have so that we can make sure the condominiums we will be looking at allow them.
