Apartment listings can tell buyers all sorts of useful things: The maintenance, the number of bathrooms, the brand of fridge, the square footage (maybe). But they invariably leave out the stuff that has to be lived-in to be appreciated--which, from the seller's perspective, is a bit too late.

We asked the owners of this
, on the market for $669k, to list the less-obvious upsides of their apartment....Here's what they said: Upper East Side convertible-two bedroom Not one but two doormen during evening rush hours. Better service than any Four Seasons. Our neighbor is an expert baker and the halls often smell of homemade banana-walnut bread. And sometimes a loaf appears at our door. Thick pre-war walls so neighbors are only seen and not heard. Quiet tree-lined street is one block from cross-town bus and two blocks from subway--you will cut your taxi bills in half 52 steps to Crumbs. The weekend doorman insists on calling us Mr. and Mrs. even though we've told him for 8 years to call us by our first names. S'mores taste better in the ornately carved fireplace that we restored with q-tips and toothbrush. The hallway closet is so large that we considered using it as a nursery for our second child, but couldn't stand the thought of ripping out the custom closets. No worries about who's bringing the chinese, or pizza, or.... Delivery men are escorted to door by porter who operates service elevator. Hand-painted ceiling lobby is the closest thing to the Sistine chapel this side of the Atlantic. Not thinking twice about putting AC on high during August heat spell. Utilities included in maintenance! Only three other apartments on the landing means Park Avenue privacy at one-tenth the price. Never risk getting bed bugs at the movies again. This apartment is wired for surround sound. Is your apartment more than the sum of its listing?
