Wednesday Word—Neighbors

Look at the lovely foliage and that’s the Umpire State Building in the background!

CK has had many careers. Today I’m trying my paw at Real Estate. I have the opportunity of a lifetime for some furrends of mine and their staff. Yes, you could live right next door to The World’s Most Stunning Cat! Don’t faint cos it’s true! You’ve all read in this blog what a crappy wonderful community I live in. Oh come on, the elevator doesn’t catch fire every day and all the CO problems are so last year. Guess what? There are no less than four apartments for sale/rent on this floor! In fact, you can have the honor of moving in right next door to this stunning ghetto kitteh! How titillating is that! The apartments on either side of us are empty and can be yours.

Let me tell you a bit about the apartment next door that’s for sale. This true 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit features high ceilings, fully renovated kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, breakfast bar and hardwood floors. It also includes washer/dryer in unit, new HVAC and offers partial city views. Plus, you can knock on the door and come play with ME! All this for just $425,000 for 1200 sq. ft. Hey, Woman, why is their apartment 200 sq feet larger than ours? It’s not fair. What does “under contract” mean? Does someone have a contract out on whoever buys it?

The apartment on the other side of us is For Rent. $2450 per month gets you all this: Top floor corner unit, NW exposure with partial NYC views. 1260 sq ft one bedroom, two bathrooms and a sleep loft/office. Open kitchen and living area with 14 ft ceilings and overwhelming sunlight. Large master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in closet. Tons of storage. Just 15 minutes to midtown NYC! All that AND access to this little ghetto kitteh. Hey, this unit is bigger than ours too! Did you ax for the smallest unit in the building? I’ll bet I could jump off that cool loft and land on my feet.

If you move into either of these apartments, you better be damn quiet cos Pop needs his beauty rest and CK doesn’t like loud noises. I would appreciate if you could bring me treats.

Lots of trees mean Bird TV.
Then there's the unit down the hall and note it’s also bigger than our place. This 1322 sq ft. 2 bed, 2 bath lofted condo features 16 ft ceilings, in-unit washer/dryer, storage, newly refinished hardwood floors and new loft carpeting, stainless steel appliances, newly refinished bath jacuzzi tub and more. Check out the appliances you also get: refrigerator, dishwasher, oven/range, microwave, washer/dryer. built-in entertainment center, built-in desk and cabinet, There’s no NYC view in this unit, which I guess is why it’s only $409,000. How come this unit’s ceilings are 2 feet higher than the other one? Someone is not being truthful and it’s not me. 

Pets are allowed with a maximum of three. So how did I do in my first try at being a Realtor? I bet you guys want these apartments, don’t you? Who wouldn’t want to live close to Stunning Keisha? You may NEVER again have this opportunity. Oh, and, um, I had nothing to do with the previous owners putting these units on the market. Really.

Note: I was gonna publish pics of the actual units but TW didn’t think that was wise. I’m not worried about my furrends that comment every day but there might be some unscrupulous humans and cats, including, but not limited to, my political enemies, rival street gangs and the po-po, that can use them to pinpoint my location. I must keep my whereabouts a secret.

Yeah, and a deeded indoor parking spot all included in the maintenance fee.

Good job, CK! We think you're a natural at this real estate stuff!

Angel Prancer Pie said...

You've sold us on it! We would love to move in next door to you!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

I'd totally move in! But my human's boyfriend prefers no seasons and my human refuses to ditch him - or the dog, who is the fourth pet.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We'll need to get all 3 apartments to accommodate all of us! MOL.

Lone Star Cats said...

Molly The Wally said...

Yes but whilst they are empty it is nice and quiet CK. Hmmmm watch for any vodka bottles the Russians may be coming. We got plenty rich ones we can send you from over here. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Tamago said...

You can be a very good real estate agent! Those units sound really good. Spacious, good location, etc, but the best feature, becoming your neighbor!

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

I think you make a great real estate agent! I would live by you in a heartbeat! Except, those apartments would have to be pretty darn big, cuz we got 3 huskies, 3 kitties and 2 kids! haha!

Melissa and Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

I think you've found your calling, CK!

SpittySpeaks said...

Shoot. I don't have the $400K--couldn't I just move IN with you?

Jans Funny Farm said...

Well, you might call yourself a ghetto cat, CK, but we couldn't afford a postage size apt there. Don't suppose they have gold faucets?

Patty Woodland said...

I think they could charge more with a Famous Blogging Cat in the building

Austin Towers said...

OMC! I thought prices in the UK were high!!! But the footage seems large by our standards! I might give it a miss, CK. However, the temptation to live next door to the Ghetto Kitteh is almost overwhelming!!

PeeEss I don't like loud noises either :)

Absolutely a class act there CK. Why, we would jump at those places 'cept the cost for the square footage is almost like our bay area...especially the rent.

Kitties Blue said...

Hope you get some nice cat-loving neighbors and no yappy little dogs. It is always scary to get new neighbors. At least living in an apartment/condo you don't have to worry about your neighbors parking their car on the lawn or leaving broken appliances on their front porch!

WOWZER MEOWZER CK.....good job on the real estate sales pitch. I was going to ask why the condos on EITHER side of you were - well - emptied out. You're sure it wasn't anything to do with you? Loud rap music, po-po raids? C'mon....fess up! I did note that there's a view of the Umpire State Building - is that where the Yankees Umpires live???

I'd move there in a flash just for the chance to be next door to someone stunning. However I think my Mom and Dad wanna stay out here in the country. Go figure.

Hugs, Sammy

Mariodacat said...

I'm sold CK. I just asked M if we could move there. Ummmm, she has the nerve to say no. It wasn't because of you tho - you are a wonderful realtor - it's cuz she don't want to get used to a big city and give up her car. YIKES - dumb reason if you ask me. Here we could have been neighbors!

Caren Gittleman said...

Oh CK you found a new career! You are a CATABULOUS Real Estate Kitty! OMC my Mom can't believe the prices there! Why is everyone moving out? Did you scare them away? Love, Cody xoxo

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

TOTALLY. You could sell ice cubes to eskimos, girl!

Flynn said...

You've sold it to me! I'm busy counting my pennies but I think I will have to ask my mum for a loan. Maybe I could move in with you until I have saved enough.

Katie and Glogirly said...

CK, we think you've got a real future in real estate!
I can't imagine ANYONE will dare more in without treats for CK.
; )

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

Very good job, CK! But watch out for that Flynn. He's so in love with you he'd rather move in with YOU, anyway!~

Brian said...

Bravo CK! You can do anything girl!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

They should charge extra for the units because they get to live near you, for sure. You have a bright future ahead as a realtor... and as a stunning, famous neighbor!

The Island Cats said...

Will you try your paw at selling the Brooklyn Bridge, too, CK?? You're a natural!

Anonymous said...

Great sales pitch! I think you could totally have a new career on your hands, Keisha. I hope you get some great new neighbors - with cat treats.

Eileen said...

You've done an amazing job! The only problem...we didn't hear anything about a cat tree or a scratching post.

Oh well, mom bean says it is too far away for us move. Spoilsport!

Sasha, Sami, & Saku

Jobi Harris said...

Wow, CK! It's been almost two years since we've moved and I don't want to set any records. I am sold...I mean on the idea. Next move is to run out and get my lottery ticket. You are an awesome realtor.

Cheri Wildcatwoods said...

we would hire you for our realtor!
