The four-unit condo building on Wilson Avenue in Bushwick that we covered in November has sold out. Granted, we are only talking about four units here, but they sure went fast. According to Elliman Broker Jessica Peters, one of those representing the building, offers on all four apartments were accpeted within 24 hours of the building going on the market (contracts could not be signed right away due to amendments that were being made to the offering plan). Two of the four units sold over the asking price — the top unit by about $20,000 over. Every sale was an all-cash deal. The two bedroom units were priced between $475,000 and $599,000. In November commenters were skeptical about the apartments and the location, a bit of a walk from the Morgan Ave L. Said one commenter, “the two bedroom has such a tiny kitchen, with no counter space. The AC unit looks like its sloppily coming out of the upper wall. A private roof deck is nice, but for this hood and a good walk to the train, tough to drop over 500k.” Well, apparently not too tough.
