The action

Listing agent Nicolas Blachette showed the unit to 15 parties. He received two offers, one of which was too low.

The seller had lived in the unit for a decade and had plans to upsize. The buyers plan to renovate the unit and will live in it.

The sale completed in March.

The agent’s take

“The sale price is great, but it has lots of restrictions and needed some upgrades,” Mr. Blachette says of the co-op unit. “Also, it is harder to finance and requires a larger deposit.”
