A few stories popped up today regarding the demand at Long Island City condo buildings. First, a story published by DNAinfo on buyers snatching up properties around the city without bothering to see them in person. A snippet from the article: “The $599,000 one-bedroom unit in a Long Island City boutique condo had been listed on Streeteasy a mere 30 minutes when Pimmie Hoontrakul offered the full asking price, sight unseen.” Okay! Also, the Court Square Blog notes that Apartment #3B at 44-27 Purves Street (pictured above) entered contract after one week on the market and just a single open house. The buyer is paying full ask — $860,000 — for the two-bedroom, 1,023-square-foot pad.
