DEALS: John Legend Selling East Village Condo $2.9 Million (pics)

 width=One of my many professions includes being a real estate agent. Legend paid 1.9 Million for the condo in 2009 and is putting it on the market two years later for 2.9 Million. While the market for real estate is still tight, I think he will get it but if the condo does not sell by mid Novemeber, it is likely to sit through January perhaps longer which may make him decrease his price. Once the holidays hit the market almost comes to a screeching halt not to mention the winter weather in NYC during that time. See Pics below. K

John Legend is well-known in the music industry and has won 9 Grammy Awards throughout his career. Getting his start with Kanye West, Legend’s career took off and spiraled down the road to ultimate success. Ever since the release of his debut album Get Lifted (released in 2004), John Legend’s music continues to touch the lives of his fans.

Last week NBC purchased John Legend’s “Mixed Blessings,” making him officially a television producer. The series will include a “cultural clash” and involves an urban hip-hop artist.

Between writing new songs and working with NBC, Legend has recently put his condominium in East Village on the market for $2.95 million. The home includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms and spans over 1,300 square-feet. Legend is seeking to make a profit off this property, which he purchased in 2009 for less than $2 million.

The condominium features a swimming pool and beautiful views coming from this 15-story building.   Rumor has it that Legend and his girlfriend both love the apartment; however, they may looking to upgrade to something bigger and better, hence the condo being placed on the market. Maybe the couple is planning for their future together.

Anyone that is a fan of Legend or an investor with an interest in an incredible condominium with a stellar location should seriously look into this property. Knowing that Legend paid less than $2 million for the home in 2009 could be used to the potential buyers’ advantage when negotiating. However, with the recent recovery in the luxury real estate market it may be hard to get Legend to budge too much on his asking price.

In the end, this incredible property is connected with a musical legend (no pun intended) and you could be the next owner if you have almost $3 million to spare.
