Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan of Stribling & Associates Quoted in The Real Deal on Manhattan's Townhouse Market

1488911731NEW YORK, NY - Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan of Stribling & Associates was quoted in an article on The Real Deal titled Manhattan's Townhouse Market is Cooling Fast The article starts,

In 2007, Charles Murphy, a current partner at billionaire John Paulson’s hedge fund, Paulson & Co., bought a turn-of-the-century limestone mansion off Fifth Avenue from Seagram heir Matthew Bronfman. Murphy paid $33 million for the pad, which was a record price for a New York mansion less than 26 feet wide at the time. Then, in 2016, he put the property back on the market for $49.5 million, evidently envisioning a windfall.

But the home at 7 East 67th Street didn’t sell — even after listing broker Carrie Chiang of the Corcoran Group slashed the price by more than $10 million. Murphy pulled the listing, but the townhouse reappeared last month with a further discounted price of $36.5 million. Assuming the hedge funder can find a buyer for that amount, factoring in broker and attorney fees, he will hardly clear the sum he paid a decade ago.

Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan is quoted as a luxury real estate specialist:

“You’re seeing townhouses languishing,” said Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan of Stribling & Associates. “The townhouse used to be the ultimate trophy and status symbol, but the prices aren’t as extraordinarily high as they were in the past.”
