Even Jared Kushner Can’t Sell His Apt. at Full Price

We all know the real estate market is rough — still. But shouldn’t it be easier for a well-connected mogul? You know, someone who’s heavily invested in the real estate industry and perhaps married to an ultra-famous real estate heiress? Apparently not.
One might assume that Jared Kushner — real estate impresario, Observer owner and Ivanka Trump babbydaddy — could have named his price and bagged a buyer for his East Village bachelor pad without any problems. But, as Curbed reported today, Kushner has sold his home for less than its asking price — down to $3.91 million from $4.1 million. What gives? Doesn’t everyone want to grace Kushner Manor?
Of course, Kushner has already moved uptown to a more family friendly apartment, so we’re not too worried about him. Javanka’s new home — in Trump Park Avenue (of course) — was originally listed for $20.8 million. Not a bad upgrade.
