StreetEasy's Most Wanted: A buyer's guide to the most-saved listings of the week

By Emily Feldman  | February 2, 2012 - 2:25PM

The dip in home prices seen in last week's Most Wanted roundup had a short lifespan. On the bright side, perhaps it's a sign that the housing market's improving.

This week's batch of the most frequently saved listings on, however, does include a few apartments that, with a little imagination (or justification), warrant the price.

The $1.25 million price tag attached to this 2-bedroom postwar co-op on East 87th Street buys access to an outdoor adult pool, a kiddie pool, a roof deck, a party room and a bike room (basically a small-scale country club). If you'd like even more for your money, the unit's den can be swapped for a third bedroom. 

This $1.995 million 2-bedroom on Bank Street doesn't have as many bells and whistles, but it can be converted to a 3-bedroom and is in a pretty prime location.
