This week our Open House Picks consists of two outliers and two flips. The most expensive property is a single-family house in Victorian Flatbush that appears to be a custom-built home dating from the mid to late 20th century. Bargain hunters should check out the pick at the other end of the price scale, a circa-1900 neo-Colonial in Old Mill Basin. The two flips, both in Bushwick, are unusually decent, plus they also have original details such as mantels, window surrounds and stairs.

Three out of four sold ain’t bad. We’re surprised by the closing price of the Bushwick sale, which went over ask. Even for a freshly renovated property, which it was, $1,225,000 is a very high number for a house in this location, near the Halsey J train stop.

As for the other sales, the most expensive and the least expensive homes on the list, Park Slope and Greenwood Heights, both sold for slightly under ask. South Slope is still available.

Evidently, the high asking prices we’ve been seeing for a while in the outer fringes of Bushwick are no longer just pie-in-the-sky but actually reflect the market.
