CITY LIVING with The Stein Team, May 2018

MAY 2018
From The Stein Team

An Offering from our Global Partners: 163 Pear Tree Point Road, Darien, CT. $18,900,000 
CITY LIVING with the Stein Team

The market this April has been quite unpredictable. Many of our buy-side clients (in the $5M+ range) have identified properties to purchase that have lagged on the market for a few months and then strangely found themselves in bidding wars. Conversely, some of our most appealing property for sale has been sitting somewhat unappreciated with very few requests for showings. 

It seems the new order is for properties to sit on the market (with low interest levels) and then suddenly – stirred by a confluence of price and market conditions and simply good timing, multiple buyers emerge and the value of the home is actually established.  

This equates to longer time on the market for Sellers who will require patience, and need to remain open to price adjustments based on market reactions and feedback.

Buyers, faced with bidding wars,  are walking into a tricky landscape to navigate and need to make sure they approach the bidding process thoughtfully. 

With two months left of the Spring, we are very interested to see how the market plays out.  Given there have been a good deal of $4M+ contracts signed of late, we would not be surprised to see a bit of a run on the best properties between now and late June.

Spotlight on

Philip Johnson

Philip Johnson (1906-2005) was one of the 20th century’s most influential architects, with a  career spanning more than seventy five years. Johnson studied architecture with Marcel Breuer at Harvard, and in the late 1940s and 50s, he began designing several of his most iconic structures, including his New Caanan, CT, residence: the famous Glass House, and the Seagram Building in New York, which was a collaboration with Mies van der Rohe. Others famous projects of his include the AT&T Building (now 550 Madison), the Lipstick Building, Dallas's Thanks-Giving Square and Chapel, and the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center. In 1979, Johnson was the first recipient of the Pritzker Prize. From his early modern structures to his later postmodern buildings, Johnson defined several architectural movements over the course of his decades-long career - enjoy our curated collection of his works.
