Top Five Condos For Sale In South Brooklyn
The neighborhoods we are looking at today—Midwood, Sheepshead Bay, Gravesend—still have cheap real estate.
Buying a condo in the most unaffordable U.S. market doesn’t exactly sound feasible. Unless, of course, you belong to the top one percent. But then again, what’s the alternative? Purchasing a place in Iowa suburbs and planning a disgraced exile once you can no longer afford the Big Apple?
Becoming a homeowner in Brooklyn is absolutely possible. The only question is—how far South are you willing to go. No, we do not refer to Prospect Park here. Scroll further down. Yes, keep scrolling. The neighborhoods we are looking at today—Midwood, Sheepshead Bay, Gravesend—don’t get much press attention or hipster love. Which doesn’t surprise us at Agorafy—considering that life there might be somewhat challenging. But this is where all (relatively) affordable real estate is hiding.
These areas can’t boast vibrant artist communities or decent coffee options, and local folks tend to leave the dog poop on the ground. Nope, it isn’t your fun, cool, center-of-the-universe Brooklyn, and if you (or mom and dad) can afford a one million dollar something condo somewhere in Bushwick, you should definitely do that. But for those of us who are less fortunate, buying in South Brooklyn might be the only option to own a place. After all, once you move in there, the area’s “cool” index will automatically go up a notch, right?
