Coventry Court Home on the Auction Block

2CoventryThe owner of a pricey home in the Scarsdale School District has made an unusual move to sell it quickly. With so many expensive homes on the market in town, and little movement for homes priced above $3 million, the Romans of 2 Coventry Court have retained Concierge Auctions to auction off their home. The home was listed last year for $4,995,000 but didn't sell and was taken off the market. On the tax roll it is valued at $5,175,000 and a similar house across the street sold for above $5 million to an embassy last year.

But last year has come and gone, and there seems to be few buyers for premium homes. Rather than sit and wait, the owners have opted to sell it to the highest bidder, setting no minimum price.

The home is now listed by Leslie Dorf of Houlihan Lawrence in Scarsdale, who will hold an open house on Sunday May 15 from 2-4 pm to allow potential bidders to tour the 11,000 square foot home with seven bedrooms and seven and a half baths. The home sits on .93 acres, and has a Shoreline pool and a dumbwaiter. Currently real estate taxes are $108,107 but they are being grieved.

According to Leslie Dorf, "The auction will take place on June 3 and will be hosted on Concierge Auctions digital platform called instant gavel. Potential buyers may have someone bidding for them by phone as well as Bidders are encouraged to submit earlier bids to receive a 10 percent rebate on the selling price if they eventually become the winning bid.

Let's see how it plays out. I find it hard to believe there isn't any caveats attached. It is a way to set a mkt price on a house though ? A good tax argument if best bid is $4mill. and they don't sell it at that price.

What a strange way to sell a home in this town, you can almost smell the desperation.
