Mike Schulte, associate real estate broker with Citi Habitats, broke a neighborhood record for un-renovated, single-family homes when he sold a Tudor-style brick townhome in Middle Village, Queens for $789,000.
The closing, which was $39,000 above ask, came after just five weeks on the market.
“For my townhouse listing in Middle Village, we priced it right,” said Schulte. “We had 40 groups through in the first 10 days, and received multiple offers.”
Schulte said he also believes the fact that he’s a member of both REBNY and the Queens/Long Island MLS helped the property get maximum exposure.
Schulte represented the sellers, a family he’s friends with. “They love the community and are moving within the neighborhood to a larger home,” he said.
The property, located at 65-14 79th Street, was built in 1950 and has three bedrooms and two baths. Highlights include its oversized bay window and crown molding. There’s also a finished basement, landscaped front garden and off-street parking in a rear alley.
Representing the buyer was Janet Grechkosey, Tscherne Realty.
