auctions: The intense interest in m127 auction is ironic - 07/08/10 02:35 AM
When my recent posts on the auction of six condos in a new development called m127, at 127 Madison Avenue, generated a record number of page views on my blog, I was struck by an irony.

Model apartment at the m127 condominium.
Potential bidders may snag a baragain in the auction June 27 of unsold condos in a small new development in the heart of Manhattan. 
Or, they may get more than they bargained for. 
Indeed, winning bidders may well regret their success at the absolute auction of five of the condos plus the penthouse (subject to the seller’s confirmation and, therefore, not an absolute sale) at 127 Madison Avenue, dubbed m127.
