Yet Another Report Documents Skyrocketing Prices in Brooklyn


    Yet another report has come out showing huge jumps in housing costs in Brooklyn — this one covering a period of 10 years. Some highlights, as summarized by Curbed (we received the report too, in our in box), based on data from Williamsburg-based real estate firm

    *Townhouse prices in Brooklyn Heights have more than doubled over the decade. “In 2003, the average sale price was $1,926,000. Today, it’s $4,860,000,” as Curbed put it.

    *Williamsburg is the “epicenter of the Brooklyn condo housing boom,” said Aptsandlofts. In 2003, there were only 21 condo sales in the neighborhood. In 2013, there were 706!

    *As you might surmise, sale prices in Williamsburg have skyrocketed. In 2003, the average sale price was  $378,000. Now it’s $1,262,000 (in 2012).

    *In Bed Stuy, there were a mere 12 condo sales in 2003. In 2012, there were 124.
