Park Slope is a very desirable neighborhood that is still in demand and the homes/condos/coops have retained their value well, even in this market. While there are exceptions and you can sometimes get a price break (i.e., finding a very motivated seller or a situation where there is an estate sale or job transfer) it doesn't happen often. Park Slope is not the first place we'd suggest looking for a "great deal" when it comes to price. There are surrounding neighborhoods you can consider depending upon your price range, including WIndsor Terrace and Kensington. We are full time Brooklyn agents and we would be happy to help you in your search.
At this time, there is approximately an 8 - 9 month inventory of homes on the Brooklyn MLS. You indicate you are from San Francisco. If you would need to set up a time to come in, we can begin to look for properties in advance and have some lined up for you to view. If you provide enough details we'd be happy to e-mail you a list that meets your criteria.
