Luxury Real Estate: While "location, location, location" remains the prevailing mantra for selling real estate, "added value, added value, added value" is apparently gaining momentum when it comes to marketing high-end luxury properties. Here's one we found in Brooklyn, NY, at One Brooklyn Bridge Park. Here is an opportunity to live in a building with a storied industrial past and to receive a free car, an Audi A4, and a garaged parking spot too.
There is one catch, or provision if you would, in order to take advantage of this horse-powered buying incentive. It is applicable on single-family residences with a minimum price of $2.1 million. Several of these premier condos are available and priced from $2.1 up to $4.25 million. Living space on units offering the Audi A4, range from 1,443 to 3,739 square feet.
All units feature hardwood flooring throughout, over-sized windows, ceilings over 12 feet high, and 14-foot kitchens with custom Italian décor by Dada and Sub Zero and Bosch appliances. The bathrooms have limestone floors and ceramic-tile walls. Master baths have freestanding soaking tubs and frameless shower doors along with custom-wood double-basin vanities and vanity walls. Additionally, all units are Internet-, media-, and telecom-ready and include home-offices as well. The view of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the harbor, while not a sight for poor eyes, is spectacular.
Common-access amenities include a courtyard, a billiards room, a piano room, a video-game room, and a children's playground. Residents will be able to work on their golf strokes year round with a high-tech golf-simulator, plus there is a full gym area and a yoga room.
Beyond the free Audi A4 for specifically priced units, there are great units with reduced pricing that are equally appealing, value-wise. The residence we found most attractive offers a 2,295-square-foot dwelling originally listed at $2.73 million that is now offered at $1.995 million. While it does not include a free automobile, a savings of $735,000 is quite substantial. Decisions...decisions.
