The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the real estate industry, reducing the number of available listings and altering priorities for both buyers and sellers. We can see the impact as we look at the five most-viewed listings in April on The New York Times’s Find a Home site — a collection of residential and business spaces.
$250,000 | 727 Bank Street, New London, Conn.
This building, with more than 10,000 square feet, previously housed a church on a commercial thoroughfare. It has a full kitchen, four bathrooms, about 25 parking spots and is zoned for “mixed-use,” so residential space is allowed.
$500,000 | 157 East 72nd Street, Upper East Side
This beautiful one-bedroom, one-bath apartment in a full-service building has a large living room and small kitchen. The price includes a rent-stabilized tenant, so don’t expect to move in anytime soon. Investors only.
$1,625,000 | 1040-1040A Sterling Place, Crown Heights
This two-family house contains a pair of three-bedroom, two-bath units with separate street entrances. Built in 1905 in the Arts & Crafts style, the home also has a roof deck and a wood shop.
$325,000 | 125-127 South Grand Ave., Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
Up from third-place in March was this three-family house with a pair of one-bedroom, one-bath units and a two-bedroom, two-bath unit. Despite the pandemic, there is a pending offer on the property.
1. It’s About the Water
$998,099 | 99 Sunset Boulevard, Massapequa, N.Y.
Climbing from fifth place in March to first in April was this six-bedroom, four-bath, 3,600-square-foot home. Hidden from the street, the rear of the property reveals a private dock on a canal that connects to South Oyster Bay.
