The most important question becomes how much your purchasing budget is. Some neighborhoods are more expensive and you are restricted by your budget (or maybe not depending on how rich you are!).
You need to explore Brooklyn as a whole and do research into crime statistics. With regard to schools you can do research online at web sites such as http://www.schooldigger.com. You can also do research into school zoning for a property address via NYC.gov here http://schools.nyc.gov/schoolsearch/
Also speak to people you know in Brooklyn and local business owners. Licensed real estate agents are prohibited from suggesting areas to buyers, You have to determine where you want to be and then have an agent show you homes in that particular area.
If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct. Good luck!

First and foremost and already mentioned; you must get a pre-approved to determine your exact
buying power, then you can really concentrate on what is available in that price range. Are you or your boyfriend handy? How handy?. Can you handle some tlc , a lot of tlc, or do you need mic. all of these things need to be considered before going out looking, because many areas of brooklyn right now are experiencing many bidding wars.
Which sections of brooklyn are you both familiar with, where are you moving back from how long have you been gone, and what do you mean by outskirts of brooklyn? Feel free to contact me directly and we can discuss any further questions you may have. Good luck whatever you decide and more importantly
WELCOME BACK TO BROOKLYN
Brooklyn has to be the most divese of all the boroughs. You have every ethnic backround, food and of course, real estate here. I was born and raised here and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Park Slope. Williamsburg and Greenpoint are a few good places to start from for what you're asking for. Again, Brooklyn is very diverse and I can show you the difference in locations and value.

There are so many different great neighborhoods in Brooklyn - and a few in particular that are really emerging. Depending on your budget and the lifestyle you want to achieve - different locations will work for you.
Keep in mind that not all of Brooklyn is served by the same brokerage community - so you will need a Broker that is able to forage around for properties - especially if you are not looking in the areas that are served by different MLS services.
Call me, or a broker you already know and trust who can help you through the process.
Best of Luck!
