Kim and Kanye sell Bel Air home for big profit
The new owner is a Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist
Los Angeles /
And the Kardashian real estate saga continues.
Reality star-turned-makeup guru Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West sold their Bel Air Crest residence for $17.8 million to Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist Marina Acton, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Spanning 9,000 square feet, the minimalist estate has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a swimming pool and a cabana. The couple renovated the home upon buying and installed new glass windows, some of which reach over 30 feet high.
The property last traded hands for $9 million in 2013, public records show.
Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman brokered the deal. Sandy Papale of Douglas Elliman and Joel Goodrich of Coldwell Banker Previews International also represented Acton.
Just a year after acquiring this residence, Kimye also snagged a Hidden Hills mansion once owned by Lisa Marie Presley for $20 million. Kardashian West also just recently purchased a condo in the Avanti community in Calabasas for $1.6 million. Kanye, on the other hand, has been more in a selling mood. He recently sold his Hollywood Hills home used in the “Heartless” music video for just under $3 million. [WSJ] Natalie Hoberman

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s apartment on the Upper East Side has hit the market for $20,500 a month.
The three-bedroom unit at 800 Fifth Avenue just recently became available, according to the New York Post. It is ready for a December move-in, and amenities include a concierge, a parking garage and a gym, according to its listing on StreetEasy.
Once owned by Standard Oil treasurer Jabez Bostwick, and later, by a Rockefeller – the mansion at 800 Fifth Ave. sat vacant for more than 50 years until Spitzer s father Bernard demolished it and built a luxury rental tower at the address in the late 1970s.
An analysis by The Real Deal in June 2016 found that the building s 208 apartments leased for an average of $10,500 a month. The building, still owned by Spitzer Enterprises, also holds a few medical suites. There are four other apartments in the building currently on the rental market for over $10,000, according to StreetEasy.
Spitzer is currently building a $700 million, 857-unit rental complex along the Williamsburg waterfront. The first building is slated to launch next year, with Dave Maundrell of Citi Habitats leading the marketing effort.  [N[……]

For the better part of a year, StreetEasy has been a magnet for criticism from much of New York real estate s brokerage community.
But a visit Thursday by Spencer Rascoff, CEO of StreetEasy s parent company Zillow, to the Real Estate Board of New York may signal a thaw in relations.
Sources said Rascoff — who is based on the West Coast — met with senior REBNY officials, including president John Banks, to discuss the possibility of StreetEasy taking REBNY s syndicated listings feed, which it so far has disavowed.
It s not happening tomorrow, said one source familiar with Thursday s discussion. But they were open. They were listening. It s something that s being considered.
The meeting was two months in the making, according to sources. After reaching an impasse with StreetEasy, REBNY reached out directly to Rascoff late last year to propose a face-to-face meeting.
In addition to Rascoff and Banks, others present at the meeting included Susan Daimler, general manager of StreetEasy; Jim Whelan, REBNY s executive vice president and chief lobbyist; and Sandhya Espitia, REBNY s senior vice president.
It was a productive, positive conversation, confir[……]

Buckle up, brokers: This could be the worst spring for home sales in years
Rising prices and interest rates, along with the new tax law, could slow demand
New York /

Springtime for home sales across the U.S. could end up being a pretty depressing season.
Increasing mortgage rates, a new tax law reducing homeownership incentives and exhaustion from first-time homebuyers getting priced out of the market could all contribute to extremely low demand for houses this spring, according to the Wall Street Journal. The volatility of the stock market is also contributing to weakness at the high end of the housing market, while rising interest rates are a major factor on the low end.
This could lead to a slowdown in the constant price increases that the housing market has seen in recent years, but while this may increase interest from buyers, it could make things more difficult for sellers in pricier markets.
Last year, about 2 million homes were sold between March and June, and the National Association of Realtors expects this spring’s sales to be flat. Fannie Mae data from February showed that consumer confidence had dropped in the housing market, and in January, NAR data showed that home sales saw their sharpest drop in three years.
“People are being a little more cautious than they were before,” Chicago broker Bruce Glazer told the Journal. “Buyers h[……]
