What does this all mean?
Because Dorchester Towers Condominium is such a large building, 680 apartments, and the specific location and design of the building, taking up the entire block from 68th to 69th Street from Broadway to Amsterdam, the layouts, exposures and floor level have dramatic effects on the pricing of each unit. The building was originally built in 1965 and converted into condominiums in the late 80's so the physical condition of each unit will depend on each individual owners ability to remodel.
At Dorchester Towers Condominium it is very important to know the fine points of the building because there are so many layouts and variations that will effect pricing. Understanding individual lines, a pricing history of similar apartments, exposure and view will greatly impact a pricing strategy or bidding strategy for both buyers and sellers.
We are in a competitive market, hence working with two agents that live in the building and that specialize in condominium sales will you give you an advantage when it comes time to sell or rent your apartment. Our approach to selling your apartment is intentionally unique. We use strategies that most real estate agents do not use. If you are interested in hearing our proposition, contact us immediately to see how we can help you achieve your goals.
