The Real DealIs NYC S Townhouse Market Undervalued

Realty television interior design duo Cortney and Robert Novogratz paid $4.3 million for their nearly 7,200-square-foot townhouse in the West Village in 2007. They recently listed the home for $21.5 million, or just under $3,000 per square foot. While that price may seem high, the Novogratzes, who had their own HGTV show, “Home by Novogratz,” previously listed the house, which is located at 400 West Street, in 2009 for $25 million to no avail. And yet, compared with prices for new development condos in the neighborhood, the property, which is being listed by Douglas Elliman broker Raphael De Niro, is a relative steal, according to some top brokers. ...

The Real DealBrokers Say Buyers Are Less Frantic As Inventory Ticks Up

This year, roughly half their sales are “best and finals,” said Kromer. “There is more available inventory, so buyers are having more choices, and sellers are having to be more competitive.” Kromer and other brokers said the sales market is returning to a more normalized state thanks to the recent uptick in inventory. That’s resulting in the diminished use of “best and final” offers, in sharp contrast to last year. ...

Daily VoiceNew Canaan's Roger Sherman Inn On Market For 6 Million

New York TimesScheduling Open Houses

Scheduling an Open House I am a market-rate tenant in a co-op building and will soon vacate the apartment. I have a great relationship with my landlord, who has listed the apartment for sale. The broker and I agreed the apartment could be shown twice a week while I am at work with 24 hours’ notice, and open houses could be held with sufficient warning and my consent. However, the broker placed an advertisement for an open house at an inconvenient time for me, without my knowledge. Needless to say, I am frustrated. I believe this goes beyond the reasonable access provisions outlined in my lease and infringes upon...

Stamford AdvocateOfficials Hope New Owners Preserve Inn's Charm

NEW CANAAN -- The Roger Sherman Inn, a nearly 100-year-old landmark, has just hit the market with an asking price of $6 million.
