I don't know about you but master comediane Kristen Wiig tickles my funny bone in a really big way. So, when her apartment came on the market last week, I couldn't wait to see it.
Her apartment is located in SOHO in New York City. She purchased the 2 bedroom / 1 bath SOHO loft for $1,900,000 in 2009 and just listed it for $2,500,000. How many investments are you aware of that return 31% in 5 years? With the Manhattan real estate market once again at peak values (some say exceeding evaluations in 2006), the likelihood is she will get close to her asking price.
It is located at 476 Broadway between Broome and Grand - a great SOHO location surrounded by excellent restaurants and amazing shopping. The apartment is on the 10th floor high above surrounding buildings. This is a key factor in Manhattan real estate because the apartment not only has voluminous views, but it is bathed in light from 2 different exposures.
It has an open floor plan (like most SOHO lofts) with white walls, dark stained floors and amazing unobstructed views. Unfortunately, the apartment is completely bare. So you'll have to use your imagination to visualize how it might look furnished.
At this incredible price the buyer gets a kitchen with butcher block counter tops, a Bosch range, microwave and dishwasher and a Sub Zero refrigerator. It has a Bosch washer and dryer in the apartment and central air conditioning. One of its biggest selling points? The monthly maintenance fee is under $900 - extremely low by New York standards.
