Bruce Willis Asks $3.9M for NYC Pad
Actor Bruce Willis listed his New York apartment just a few days ago for $3.9 million. That's significantly less than the $4.26 million he paid for it in 2008.
"The amount is a very strategic move," David Salvatore of Town Real Estate, who is co-broker with Chris Sileo, told AOL Real Estate. "We wanted it listed under $4 million because this is a property Bruce does not want to be showing on the market. He wants to sell it quietly in a reasonable amount of time and based on a price that is really fair."
Why is Willis, who shot to fame in the 1980s with the hit TV series Moonlighting and followed it with a string of action flicks such as Die Hard and a turn in Quentin Tarantino's cult classic Pulp Fiction, selling his humble Manhattan abode?

Salvatore says it's a lifestyle change. "He purchased the apartment prior to getting married to Emma [Hemming], and I think like in any situation they're looking for a new adventure together," he says. "Certainly he's not at a loss for places to live."
At 2,300 square feet, with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 17 oversize windows that provide a spectacular view of Manhattan, it's the only unit in the building with 11-foot ceilings. Also included are a master suite with marble bathroom, double sinks, separate shower and jacuzzi tubs, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, cherry cabinets and granite countertops, pretty much the works.
"This particular property is in the Trump Place building in a great location, steps away from Center and other great spots, it's really in its own little world," says Salvatore.
The 6 percent price drop was on direct advisement from the folks at Town. Still, this price is in line with the luxury market in New York City, which remains strong. Salvatore says, "Luxury property is all happening at the same velocity as before the market adjusted. We actually have a shortage of luxury high-end properties in Manhattan."
