Brooklyn buyers are getting desperate. A reader got in touch about a home in Prospect Lefferts Gardens where the owner recently passed away. The owner’s daughter, who does not live in Brooklyn, has complained about receiving random telephone calls at her home inquiring whether this PLG home is for sale. (A death notice, with the information about the owner and daughter, appeared on a local blog, and, apparently, the information was taken differently by prospective buyers out there.) Have readers had any similar experiences? We’d imagine that with the growing demand coupled with low inventory in brownstone Brooklyn it happens more than we’d like to believe. If there’s a protocol involved with these types of matters, it seems self-evident that you shouldn’t call up a still-mourning family to push them to sell a house.
