Taylor Swift scopes out Greenwich Village pad

January 10, 2014 04:15PM

Taylor Swift is in the market for a Manhattan home.

The country crooner has been checking out apartments in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, the New York Daily News reported. Among the spots she reportedly checked out were a $12 million townhouse at 9 St. Luke’s Place, previously owned by Arthur Laurents, who wrote “West Side Story,” and a $6.25 million four-bedroom at 22 Charlton Street nearby.

The Corcoran Group’s Sharon Baum, known for her license plate emblazoned with “SOLD 1,” showed Swift around.

Swift, who has become something of a prolific real estate buyer as of late, joked in a recent Vanity Fair interview that she buys “houses near every boy I like.”

“If I like you, I will apparently buy up the real estate market just to freak you out so you leave me,” she told the magazine.

A representative for Swift declined to comment to the Daily News. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
