How do you get into the red-hot Brooklyn housing market? Is it even a good idea to buy in the borough right now? The answers can be found at What First Time Buyers Need to Know: Brooklyn, part of the series of Brownstoner Home Events.
At the April 30 event at the Brooklyn Historical Society, curious buyers will hear directly from the experts about what neighborhoods might be best for first time buyers, whether you need an attorney, what kinds of mortgages you should consider and even how best to make your new apartment feel like home.
With nearly seven years of experience as a broker and manager in Park Slope and Cobble Hill, Brian Giambalvo, the Senior Managing Director of real estate firm Citi Habitats, has long been a leading first-time home buyer’s agent. As a panelist at the event, he will help you better understand the borough’s housing stock, its neighborhoods and how to navigate the competitive market. Puzzling over whether to buy a co-op or condo? Hoping to have some rental income to offset the mortgage? Giambalvo can help.
The event will take place at 128 Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights on Wednesday, April 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10.
