This seems to be a "fake" listing. The person advertising and representing this property is most likely a broker. They want people to call, only to explain the apartment is no longer available and try to convince you to be their broker.

I suggest contacting a Mortage Broker to get pre-qualified, first. If you do not have one, I can suggest a couple I have worked with in the past. Once you're pre-qualified, you'll have a better idea of where to begin your search. This is why a broker is so important. I will not wate you time with smoke and mirrors.

If you have any further question, please do not hesitate to ask.

That price is oddly low for a 2 bedroom in that location in Manhattan, which suggests something is not quite right.

Others have speculated as to what could be wrong, it could even be a clerical error in the database.

Your best path is to ask a real estate agent ("broker") to help you find an apartment in your price range.

The vast majority of NYC apartment sales involve two brokers--one for the seller and one who represents the best interests of the buyer. I work as a buyer's agent (not all agents do). There's no need for the buyer to pay the broker, because by prior agreement sellers brokers share commissions with buyers brokers.

I actually looked up if there are any 2 BR for sale in Manhattan in that price range - there are a few but their monthly expenses are over 1500-2000K. Let me know if you would be interested. You can set up a free user account on my website and search all exclusive NYC listings (click on search all NYC).

Boris, if it sounds too good to be isn't true!

Listen to Elena!

If it's a RealtyTrac "listing" it's probably not even for sale.......they simply compile data for homes/apartments that are behind in payments.............and then make you pay to see their lists.....$429,821 might be the amount that is owed........NOT a list price.
