Done Deals: Unique selling style

It’s not easy being unique — just ask Citi Habitats agents Jed and Lindsay Wilder.

They were tapped to sell an LIC penthouse that the owner had styled in his own unique way.

“It is stunning, but very taste specific,” explained Jed. “It was a very challenging deal because appraisals did not come in for full price due to the uniqueness of the apartment and lack of comps.”

Unit 4/5B at 10-40 46th Road, a boutique building known as Casa Vizcaya, is a convertible three-bedroom, 3.5-bath with a great room, sleek modern fireplace and slate floors. It has 1,000 s/f of outdoor space with a private pool, custom bar and grill.

The agents listed the condo — the biggest available in LIC at the time — for $3.695 million.
“It took some intense negotiating, but in the end, we were able to seal the deal,” said Jed.

In fact, the sale closed at $3.1 million, a record-breaking price for a condo in the neighborhood.

Blair Sheenan of Prevu Real Estate represented the buyers.
