☞ DWELL: 310 West 137th Street in Contract

After being almost a year on the market, the  2-family, 2,496 square foot townhouse in Central Harlem going for $685K is finally in contract.  The 16-foot-wide brick property had its facade stripped of old paint and was repointed but the inside looks like it was in the middle of a gut renovation in the past months.  DOB records still has it listed as an SRO and a B3-2 Family dwelling which shows that the online system is not always up to date. Otherwise, it's a quiet brownstone block that's about a 5 minute walk to the B,C station at St. Nicholas Park and 135th Street. There appears to be some original details left intact but the space will need the full reno treatment. Go to the broker website to set up a viewing and see the interior: LINK

    $275psf for a property in lousy shape, SRO but without tenants. Does anybody know how long it has been vacant? If longer than two years, it will be easy for the new owners to get their certificate of non harassment. The location is decent and the price feels about right to me.

  2. I have done my research. The sellers are involved in an illegal situation. Buyer has to be real leery about this house. It is in a surrogate court situation and the administrators are being investigated. HPD NY is also being investigated.
