When Marie Bromberg brought another one bedroom to the busy Downtown Brooklyn market, she knew she had to make it stand out in the crowd.
“I knew that staging and marketing would be key to moving this unit effectively,ˮ said the Corcoran broker.
The 794 s/f apartment at The Toren high rise condominium attracted only a handful of open house visitors — but they were serious visitors.
“We had a very high offer ratio,ˮ said Bromberg. “In fact, this unit, despite having limited views and light, sold for all cash, at a higher price than some of the one-bedroom penthouses that just closed in the building.”
The apartment #605 at 150 Myrtle Ave., has Brazilian Ipe Walnut floors, a dining area, HVAC, a dishwasher and a Juliet Balcony.
It sold for the $875,000 ask after just eight weeks on the market.
