NYC real estate in brief

L Haus tacks on more buyer incentives
Three months after announcing buyer incentives, the Long Island City
condo L Haus just started offering 90 percent financing in addition to its rent-to-own and price protection incentives to
potential buyers. L Haus is also offering brokers 2.5 percent
commission on first deals, 4 percent commission on second deals and 5
percent on third deals. The Park Slope condo at 500 Fourth Avenue is
also offering a broker promotion. If three deals are done from one
brokerage office, the condo will raise the co-broke fee to 4 percent
from 3.5 percent.
