With the majority of real estate discussions centered on investment value and whether it's a buyer's or seller's market, it can be easy to forget that people's homes are at the heart of it. However, a studio in Greenwich Village supplements its floor plan and specs with a video expanding on what it's like to live in this unit that Compass broker Brian K. Lewis describes as "a masterpiece of maximizing space." Additionally, while it's not uncommon for buyers to write letters to sellers in order to set themselves apart in a competitive market, this seller effectively wrote a letter of recommendation for the apartment and its address on a classic Village street.

The studio was one of 390 listings that experienced price cuts over the past week, having been reduced by $100,000, or 16.7%, to $499,000. A full, sortable chart may be found below, along with a selection of notable listings.
