This Fort Greene two-family townhouse sold in September for $613,000, changing hands from the estate of the previous owners to a corporation. In October, Corcoran put it on the market for $1,670,000. The house does not appear to have been renovated in the meantime, judging by the photos, although it does have some beautiful original detail. A few weeks later, the price decreased 11 percent to $1,490,000, according to Streeteasy. In early November, the ask increased 14 percent to $1,700,000. Then, surprisingly, on Dec. 6, Corcoran relisted the house again, this time for $2,400,000, an increase of 41 percent, according to PropertyShark. Does anyone know what’s going on? We don’t see any indication on the listing that it is in contract.

OK, it’s really narrow and there are a lot of down lights but this Greenwood Heights house at 396A 19th Street looks pretty cute to us. Goes to show what some great rugs and Timorous Beasties wallpaper can do, right? That bath looks pretty slick, and we also like the new unpainted clapboard exterior. We’re not so […]
