David Wright Makes a Play to Unload NYC Bachelor Pad

david wrightThe New York Mets may be hurting, but third baseman David Wright is making some smooth real estate plays. In March, he moved from Manhattan's ultra-hip Flatiron district to a $12,000-per-month rental on the Upper East Side. Now he has listed his tricked-out Flatiron bachelor pad. The asking price? $7.85 million.

Wright purchased the 3-bedroom, 4½-bath, 4,000-square-foot penthouse loft in 2006 for $6.1 million. It includes a salt-water aquarium and gas-fueled stone-and-glass fireplace, as well as a media room with a wall covered with five flat-screen TVs. There also is an upstairs roof deck, complete with a sound system and enclosed hot tub, notoriously delivered by a crane that required shutting down the block of West 21st Street temporarily.

Now if only the last-place Mets, with only 6 wins and 13 losses, could catch a little bit of Wright's real estate mojo.

Seller financing can be a great way to get a house sold without slashing the price. By recognizing the millions of people who can't get traditional financing as potential buyers, resourceful property sellers (and their real estate agents) can minimize their time investment in getting a property sold. Even better, sellers who offer financing can usually get a higher asking price for their property, even in the slowest markets. Clearly this is a win-win situation. www.cash4cashflow.com/jhansbury

I am offering commission sales jobs, selling 100% Shea Butter, unlimited income. Just thought you would like to see something rational rather than some overpaid ball player's pad. Don't you think that America's obsession with sports and entertainment figures is a tad sick.

From owning to renting. A team in rebuilding mode, perhaps Wright knows something we do not. With Reyes, Beltran, Santana exiting soon maybe Wright will go as well. He would bring atleast 2 top prospects. Murphy can take over at third and is much cheaper.

Can you say "the writing on the wall"? Go to rental so when you get traded you wont have a mortgage payment.
