BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - Bidders have a rare opportunity to snag a multi-million dollar Baltimore penthouse for a bargain -- literally millions of dollars below the original listing price -- at an upcoming real estate auction.

The nearly 4,000-square-foot luxury, high-rise home will be auctioned on Oct. 17, 2009. Interested homebuyers can bid at the live, onsite auction or via online webcast at

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for buyers to take advantage of the distressed real estate market and move into a luxury home for a substantial discount to what the property was valued at previously," said Dan Will, president of Great American Home Auctions.

The beautifully appointed 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom penthouse is located at 100 Harborview Drive. It features dramatic wraparound views, refined elegance, a prestigious address, and luxury amenities including a gourmet kitchen and wet bar, whirlpool tub, and two pools/spa.

According to Will, the penthouse was originally listed at $4.6 million and was last appraised for $3.6 million. The starting bid for the auction is $950,000 -- an unbelievable value on a premium property.
