Award-Winning Actress Marisa Tomei Lists Manhattan Apartment


Marisa Tomei, Academy Award-winning and three-time Oscar-winning actress best known for her role in the movie, “My Cousin Vinny,” has listed her Manhattan home for $7.5 million.

The apartment was originally two separate condos, both one-bedrooms. However, in the two decades Tomei has owned the properties she has combined them to create a luxurious, 2,300 square feet Greenwich Village apartment.

One apartment became the home’s celebrity-grade master suite, which features a wood-burning fireplace, beamed ceilings, a 200 square-foot dressing room and walk-in closet, and a terrace. The second now holds a large great room with another fireplace, a second bedroom, and a kitchen equipped with commercial-style stainless steel appliances. Between the two areas are a library and a home office, each with doors opening onto the master. There are two baths overall; both bedrooms are en-suite.

The building was designed by New York architecture heavyweight Emory Roth in 1931. Tomei has done a brilliant job of combining modern, contemporary style and design to the space while, also, maintaining the classic period charm of the original apartment era.

Mortgage Rates Shrink

Mortgage rates are finally going down! The average 30-year, fixed mortgage rate has retreated, back to 4.44 percent this week after rising for nine straight weeks, according to Freddie Mac’s recently released Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS ). The average 30-year, fixed mortgage rate was 4.46 percent the week prior.

Mortgage rates are directly correlated with Treasury yields, which dipped following an inflation update this week, says Len Kiefer, deputy chief economist at Freddie Mac.

“Tuesday’s Consumer Price Index report indicated inflation may be cooling down; headline consumer price inflation was 2.2 percent year-over-year in February,” Kiefer says. “Following this news, the 10-year Treasury fell slightly. Mortgage rates followed Treasurys and ended a nine-week surge.”

In addition, the average 15-year, fixed mortgage rate also decreased, now at 3. 90 percent. It’s down from 3.94 percent the week prior.
