1,000-square-foot co-op unit in 13-story Manhattan building goes to auction with a lien of $353,446. The auction is scheduled for 10:15 A.M., September 25, at 60 Centre Street, New York City.

Unit 9E, located within The Morad Beekman Building at 420 East 51st Street, was purchased in 2006 for $560,000. A loan for the same amount was secured soon after with E*Trade Wholesale Lending Corp, and was assigned to Wells Fargo in 2011. The foreclosure judgment was handed down on September 10 for a lien of $353,446. This is the first scheduled auction of the property.

A Comps search revealed the estimated market value of 9E to be $867,000, which is based upon 42 comparable residential sales that occurred recently within a quarter-mile radius.

Unit 9E is part of the 110-unit Morad Beekman cooperative, which was built in 1962. The property offers Manhattan living in a quiet cul-se-sac with easy access to the East River, Peter Detmold Park and Midtown. The Morad Beekman offers city and river views from the landscaped roof deck, as well as 24-hour concierge and doorman services. It also boasts a two-story lobby, fitness center, garage parking with direct building access, private storage, a bike room and laundry facilities.
