Jared Kushner, the young real estate scion and New York Observer owner found a perfect match in Ivanka Trump who is another real estate scion and is being seen in the reality TV show Apprentice supporting her dad. Even the professional head hunters couldn’t have done a better job of locating a suitable candidate with a more appropriate profile. But the spectacular wedding has resulted in Kushner’s duplex at 21 Astor Place being listed for sale.
The 2,000 square foot duplex was bought by Kushner as recently as 2009 through a Sotheby’s broker. He had bought the two bedrooms and two and half bath condo in one of the neighborhood’s most glorious buildings, for $3.225 million. So what has changed so fast for him to decide to sell it? Well he is married and Ivanka has an equal say if not more. Like they say, a bride never likes shacking up in her husband’s former bachelor pad.
The same Sotheby’s broker has been retained to find a buyer for the stunning pad. The asking price seems to have been fixed by a simple calculation for the expected return on investment. Since the couple has quality experience of selling real estate it is expected that they would get the asking price of $4.1 million. In the mean time the power couple has been spotted around town apartment hunting and ideally both the transactions will take place simultaneously.
