How will trends such as rental investing and high tech affect real estate and the economy in Brooklyn and beyond?
Here's an entire five-bedroom townhouse for rent, dolled up with a high-end renovation that's restored its original details and added some modern trappings.
This could fairly be called a deluxe rental -- an entire landmarked 1895 Renaissance Revival limestone in Bed Stuy that's been renovated with a combination of restored original details and luxe updates.
This three-bedroom, two-bath townhouse is another rental from Australian investment firm Dixon, with a condo-style renovation that is pretty high end for this part of Bushwick. There are new oak hardwood floors, original mantels, Italian marble in the kitchen, wall-mounted air conditioning units, a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. There is also a deck and backyard.
Potentially the open “recreation area” on the garden level could be used as a fourth bedroom. Rent is $3,995 a month, plus one month free, and there is no broker fee. (And as with all Dixon properties, you can pay your rent with a credit card.) Do you think the price is right for a whole townhouse near the Halsey J train?
