☞ DWELL: 207 West 131st Street in Contract

With many properties sitting on the market for most of summer and fall, 207 West 131st Street beat the odds even though the location isn't as prime as some others. The central Harlem brownstone, as we covered last spring, was on an interrupted brownstone block with views of government housing across the street. What helped it move? It probably had to do something with the fact that it was more closer to the avenue than it was mid block (so the view is a bit better), the inside had lots of original details, the property was move-in ready and the asking price started at $995k. With buyers offering 10%-20% lower these days, this building makes sense for a first time home owner. Plus, having such handsome neighbors to the side doesn't hurt either!
