House of the Day: 1328 Troy Avenue

If you don’t like the idea of paying $1,000 a square foot to own in Brooklyn, maybe it’s time to check out Flatbush. This sweet semi-detached two-family, built in 1930 according to the listing, appears to have all its original moldings, French doors and hardwood floors. The kitchens have been nicely updated with white subway tile. It’s configured as a three-bedroom duplex over a three-bedroom rental. And there’s a garage. At 2,421 square feet with an ask of $599,000, that works out to less than $250 a square foot. What do you think of it?

  • This house is easily 75-100k over priced…its been on & off the market for years…East Flatbush one families sell for 350-400k two families like this 450k-500k (maybeeee slightly more for a really nice one)…only houses I see selling for more than 550k are three fams or those HUGE Victorians that riddle the neighborhood, they’re awesome and worth the 650-700k someone might pay for them…this particular house probably wouldn’t appraise even if the broker got the price.

  • Definitely East Flatbush, not Flatbush. Not sure how those neighborhood boundaries were determined, as Flatbush used to encompass everything from Lefferts Gardens to Ditmas Park. Google maps puts this at about a mile into East Flatbush.

  • What do I think of it? Well, notwithstanding the above two comments, I think you would be doing your readers a great service if you would feature more HOTDs in the affordable range, like this one. Perhaps the 1% is more visible among buyers in Brooklyn, but the majority of us are hard-working and of more moderate means. Listings in this price range are far more inclusive of the rest of us.
