Ever wondered what a home that's ideal for a President would be like? You don't need to wonder a whole lot anymore, considering that presidential-hopeful Donald Trump has managed to sell his New York penthouse, located in the Trump Park Avenue building, for 21 million dollars. Being the business mogul that everybody in the world knows, Mr. Trump is is practically a brand in his own right, thanks to the many high rises and homes with his name on it. Knowing all this, the penthouse was definitely hot market property.
Ivanka mentioned that the sale has absolutely nothing to do with her father's bid to run for the U.S. Presidency. In her own words, her father simply is in " the business of real estate", not related in any way to fundraising for political purposes.
According to a statement made by Mr. Trump soon after the purchase concluded, the sale is considered to be a testament to the building itself. It's got a great location and simply epitomizes the strength of his brand.
Donald Trump currently has assets worth 1.5 billion dollars at the very least. These assets range from restaurants and entertainment companies to real estate. Trump alone has a net worth of 10 million dollars, which is mighty impressive. Wish you were in his shoes yet?
With one look, you can already tell that the penthouse is quite huge. According to listings, it's got 10 foot ceilings, 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and even a powder room. It's also 6,200 square feet in total area. It was initially prices for 35 million dollars back in 2013, based on public records, yet it eventually got lowered to a price of 24.995 million dollars, the lowest it got to be before it was purchased at its current price.
It was his daughter, Ivanka, who also happens to be the Trump Organization's VP of development & acquisitions, who confirmed the final sale. Ms. Griffith has mentioned that an offer was made to rent out the floor-through penthouse for a price of 80K a month, all before Donald managed to conclude transactions. The market is definitely strong and we could not agree more with this decision to get the place out in the open for people to bid on.
The star of TV's "The Apprentice" owned the unit at 59th Street. However, what you may not realize is that he never actually lived there, according to real estate agent Michelle Griffith. Then again, if you've got a lot of money to burn, you can purchase as many pieces of properties without even having to reside in each one of them.
In addition to this, the person who purchased this apartment gets to have one of the biggest perks --- living in the Big Apple. The building, owned by Trump, was bought for 115 million dollars back in 2001. The former Delmonico Hotel eventually got converted into a residential space, consisting of several luxury condominiums.
Alatia Bradley Bach and Leighton Candler from Corcoran Group, served as agents for the buyer, who opted not to have their identity disclosed to the public at all. However, Ms. Griffith mentioned that it was a U.S. based couple who also happened to have other homes all over the country.
