Hi Viviane,
I suppose anything is possible, but $500,000+ is really what you are going to be seeing for a 2 bedroom condo in Fort Greene.
If I can be of any assistance with your search, my contact information is below. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Viviane, since we last communicated the numbers have changes, here they are;

The median sales price for homes in Fort Greene, Brooklyn for Aug 09 to Oct 09 was $700,000 based on 13 sales. Compared to the same period one year ago, the median sales price decreased 33.1%, or $345,950, and the number of sales decreased 35%. Average price per square foot for Fort Greene was $571, an increase of 3.6% compared to the same period last year.

There are currently 155 resale and new homes in Brooklyn on Trulia, including 1 open house, as well as 16 homes in the pre-foreclosure, auction, or bank-owned stages of the foreclosure process.

Hello, Fort Greene is one of those high demand areas where the prices are high. You would have to go up to very high $400K to $500k to find something. Right now I am selling a one bedroom co-op in Fort Greene that's not even renovated asking $399K.

If you can't afford to go up on price, then I suggest that you try finding a co-op or look for property in the next area over from Fort Greene.

I hope this answer helped you.
