I have not forgotten our Friday $500,000 juicy real estate buy. I’ve been busy researching and posting Texas Ranger’s homes — sorry! But it’s never, ever too late for House Porn. I heard about this listing Monday and have saved it for you all week long, kind of a treat. The owner is about as serious as the Cardinals were tonight. They have just lowered the price to $549,000 from $599,000. But here’s the kicker: if this was 2007, this unit would be priced at over one million dollars. It’s a large, 1925 square foot unit with three bedroom, two and a half baths, seventh floor, beautiful downtown views. Floor to ceiling windows provide a dramatic effect and allow light to highlight the space from the deep balcony. Of course you get the Miele appliances, SubZero fridge, custom drapes, dark wide plank hardwood floors, top of the line plumbing, and more. In fact, the home is exquisitely decorated and looks like it’s never been lived in. The agent, Julie Provenzano, says she has never had a more motivated buyer so take a look at the unit, take a look at the price, and if you want a great buy at The W, make an offer. (This is $285 a square foot!) I know of one bedrooms in foreclosure here going for as little as $199K. This is a huge three bedroom unit! Run, don’t walk!
