    • Establish a New York bank account. If this is not possible, we require all is pay upfront.
    • Bring funds to cover the broker’s fees if tenant’s employer company is not paying covering that expense. Majority of the time, Brokerage fees are paid by the tenant in New York City.

Do I sell Furniture together with my 3 Lincoln Center Condo?

This is a very common asked question by our condo sellers. Many of the website photos of the Three Lincoln Center Condos at 160 West 66th Street or other Manhattan condos will have furniture and fully furnished units. However, the furniture DO NOT convey in a New York condo sale unless it is specifically mentioned in the property description or discussed prior to the negotiation.

Very rarely, buyers may want to purchase the owners' personal furniture, there is often a disconnect between what the buyers are willing to pay and the emotional attachment the owners may have for the piece.

If there is an option to purchase the furniture there will often be TWO SEPARATE prices, one with the furniture and one without. The spread between the two prices, may or may not reflect the actual replacement costs of the furniture and will include a convenience premium of being able to move right into the apartment without spending the time to furnish it.

Many of our condo sellers in Manhattan New York will hire staging services to ensure property is in best presentation possible. This is with help of a team of interior designers and decorators, when every square inch of the apartment has been well thought out, it gives the condo owners the chance to maximize the investment and sell the condo top dollar.

If you prefer to sell your furniture together with the apartment at Three Lincoln Center Condo, we can discuss it in detail to best protect your interest and market your condo creatively.
