A drastic price reduction on an apartment can mean a lot of things: Maybe the unit was mistakenly priced too high at the outset. Maybe it suddenly developed a big issue—a leak upstairs damaged the ceiling, a flood destroyed the floors—that’ll need to be repaired. Or maybe the owner simply is motivated to sell quickly. Whatever it is, a price cut can be good news for the buyer.
