The builders of this place must hope so because they just dumped broker number two and have hired Mary Crist of Ogilvy’s shoppe to try and move it. Mary’s a pal so I wish her luck, but I’m sorry she couldn’t convince the seller to switch prices as well as agents. The price remains at $7.850 million, a level that so far has proved resistible to buyers. We’re into our fifth year of ownership on this project and the price has chased the market down from an original $9.250 million to $7.85. The land was purchased (via bidding war – heh) in 2004 for “just” $1.7 so there ought to be room here for the builder to cut his losses and run. I guess he’s got deep pockets and a will of iron.
