  • so whats the story with Midwood?

  • H’mmm…

    People are still getting large mortgages…

  • Must be located close to a synagogue.

  • Brenda from Flatbush

    That’s my Q, too. Even for 4,000+ square feet, even for today’s insanity, $2.5 mill seems absurd for an ugly brick house on a narrow lot near Ave. N. Is it a dead-house-walking for a teardown? That’s been the fate of a lot of solid but unremarkable such bldgs in Midwood lately.

  • How far back does that Midwood house go? Doesn’t look too wide and even counting the low basement in the figure, hard to imagine how they get there with such a small attic.

  • The Midwood house is only 21′ x 72′ x 2 above grade = 3024 square feet, not 4,728 square feet. The lot is 4,820 square feet (40′ x 120.5′). This has to be a teardown.

    Anyone know how much you can build on a 4,820-square-foot lot?

  • so now dumbo is worth 1600 per sq. ft? wtf!

  • 12:55 pm – i do think that any waterfront/manhattan views type apartments will continue to rise in price. the 5th street apartment in williamsburg is prime, but not near the water, and that got $868 psf it (looks like) which is high for the area. Thinking it must have views then because it’s listed as the penthouse.

  • Even with the price cuts, the Montgomery Place apt. still got almost 1000 psf.

    I remember when bstoner highlighted that place. I loved it. Glad to see it sell.

    Dumbo price…WOW

    Is it true that FG us desirable enough that people will pay about 2m for a 3-family which has had a contractor-ish reno? Was that the orig. ask ($1.969) or was it higher initially?

    Do similar houses with C.of O.s for 1 or 2-family go for more or less in FG generally or is it all about the same thing.

    Seems like those who can easily pay 2m don’t necessarily want regular duplex but might want the whole house…

    …just my thoughts…

    no, i’m not a renter…am thinking of selling…

    ****

  • nope…just tried it…it works…

  • The people buying in Midwood probably bought all cash. Not too many of them need a mortgage. There was a home that sold not too long ago in this neck of the woods for 10 million.

    Brenda, I wouldn’t call them insane for paying that much though. Living near family and community doesn’t have a price tag. If I could afford to buy at least five of my neighbors out at outrageous prices, I would. I’d then move my parents and siblings in near me.

    people who are buying buildings at that cost want the full monty. you’d have to get $4k per floor in rent to make it work financially and you simply cant get that.

    a 4 story bldg in manhattan may go for $5m and you get it for 40% of that in FG or other “close” parts of bklyn. you can also fairly easily convert CofO from 3 to 1 family. so if CofO is 3 now and the buyer wants it to be 1, it would be a liability to the buyer and feasibly make property worth slightly less. but again if they are also committing $300 per s.f. to renovate the bldg too, the cost of CofO change is nominal.

  • So, if Guest 10:43, you come back to read this, can you tell me if there is a big difference between what one would expect to pay for a 3-family vs a 1-or 2-family four storey townhouse in FG?

    If someone can easily convert a 3 to a 1, it seems there should be very little difference in purchase price.

    Is this correct?
