Not true. My recent sale of Apt 9J at 25 Sutton Place South broke price records for a two-bedroom in the building. Of course a view of the river gets a high premium and he condition of the apartment has a lot to do with the ultimate sale price.... more

Unit 6MN is a really nice looking apartment, but like you said it has a signed contract. Unfortunately apartment just a floor above 7MN is also under contract.
There are two other units, similar size slightly larger at 900sf which are temporary off the market and I'll be happy to speak to both brokers to see if they are coming back on.
As for the finishes in apartment 6MN, you can do the same or even better. This will of course depend if you are looking for a turnkey apartment or something which you can update with your personal touch.
Are you interested in this specific building or Sutton Area in general?

One easy way is to buy a sponsor unit, they do not require board approval. You simply sign a contract and get the money and close, you don't need to guarantee anything. I sell Sponsor units in many neighborhoods from the Upper East Side to the Village...I get a lot of buyers who want exactly what you want...no hassles and a sure deal. Just look for such listings--they will be clearly labeled. Oh and sponsor apartments usually do not have down payment requirements!... more
Great question and I agree with the majority of comments. There's no appropriate % but if you want to be taken seriously you'll make a serious offer and not an outrageous low ball offer. First impressions count. Secondly, speak to your broker and get the comps in the building, neighborhood. Stick to your gut feeling, if you feel that your best and final is just that then be prepared to walk away. In today's market you'll read about 15-20% offers below asking, and you'll also read that depending on the location sellers aren't always that flexible. There's many variables involved but I want to stress that it's a buyer's market, so don't be afraid of making an offer regardless how low you or your broker might think it is. You're the boss, we brokers are the advisers, good luck & keep the faith!!!!... more
