The Cammeyer is now offering the last 12 studio buyers a $50,000 credit to use on furniture, technology, or both for their new home, according to John Gomes, a senior vice president at Core, who is heading up sales and marketing at the condominium conversion along with Fredrik Eklund, a Core managing director.

The 67-unit Cammeyer, located at 650 Sixth Avenue between 19th and 20th streets in the Flatiron District, recently announced that it’s 50 percent sold. But the building, being developed by Kumkang Housing, just started marketing its collection of studio lofts, which start at $845,000. To help kick-start sales, each studio buyer will receive a $50,000 credit to work with a technology consultant from Kraus Hi-Tech Home Automation or an interior designer from Manhattan-based Interior Marketing Group, Gomes explained.

Buyers who choose the technology option get a credit towards Kraus’ home automation system, which comes with a 50-inch plasma television and in-wall surround-sound speakers with a touch screen and iPod dock that lets the homeowner pre-program the temperature, lighting and music settings they want to greet them when they enter.

“It says ‘welcome home,’ and the lights and music come on to your settings,” Gomes explained.

Potential buyers can check out these features in the model home at the Cammeyer sales center.

Buyers who choose the interior design option will receive a consultation with Manhattan-based Interior Marketing Group and furniture worth up to $50,000.

Buyers who want some of each can mix and match, choosing some technology items and some furniture.

The Cammeyer isn’t the only project in town offering giveaways to lure buyers (and brokers) in a still-rocky market. Buyers at Lifesaver Lofts in Chelsea are being offered the chance to win a Vespa scooter, and Prudential Douglas Ellliman’s Bracha Group head Ilan Bracha recently offered a pair of World Cup finals tickets to any agent who fully executed a contract on an apartment at Midtown’s Centurion condo.
