    Join us for an evening in conversation with brownstone and townhouse experts to learn about the history, care, purchase, financing and renovation of houses in Brooklyn.

    Brownstones and Townhouses 101 will cover topics such as features to look for when buying, landlord basics, where the market is at, financing for tricky situations, and what kind of renovations to do to maximize beauty, livability and value.

    The event is the second evening in the Brownstoner Home Events series, a program of workshops and panels for prospective home buyers, sellers and homeowners. The first event, What First-Time Buyers Need to Know, attracted a standing-room-only crowd earlier this month.
