PriceSpotter is Curbed's asking price guessing game. We provide you with some details and pictures from an apartment listing, and you take a crack at the price in the comments. Wednesday reveal. And hey, cheaters never win, and winners never cheat!
This week's divisive PriceSpotter entrant was unit #629 in The Palms, the hotel-like condo at 555 4th Street. 629 is one of the largest units in the building with four bedrooms over 2,133 sq ft, two balconies, and a spa-like master bath. Personal opinions were split, but almost everyone agreed that the listing price would fall somewhere around 1.5M. Surprisingly, The closest guess of the week was also the highest: $1,750,000 from reader A Castro Condo or a Town in Kansas. Even more surprising - that number isn't even close. The actual listing price is $2,199,000 - almost a half million more. Sharpen the axe, we've got ourselves a future PriceChopper.
