A prime house in Bed Stuy these days is cause for a feeding frenzy. A stunning Magnus Dahlander two-family home at 242 Decatur Street closed this week for $1,700,000. In April we heard it was in contract for $1,750,000, all cash. The broker, at Evans and Nye, gave us the low-down: “We had numerous offers. One at $1,750,000 all cash, one at $1,700,000 all cash, and one financed with 70 percent down. We selected the one with financing as it was the most comfortable and promising deal for the seller. The buyer was the first to view the property and made an on site offer. We did not plan any open house for this property. To date, we still have buyers asking this property.” Yowza. Next week Evans & Nye will list another Bed Stuy brownstone on Jefferson Avenue, between Throop and Tompkins, for $1,700,000.
