Keep in mind that most owners would rather sell outright than enter into a lease option to buy--you can consider working with any local agent, also check local print media, for by owner properties--if you haven't done so yet, visit with any qualified loan officer and have him/her review your financials, credit, etc., and see if you qualify for a loan in order to purchase outright....... more
I have lived in Park Slope since 1981 and raised my children here. It is a fabulous area. The schools are great, Prospect Park is amazing and there are endless things to do. Great shops and restaurants, the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanical Garden and a host of other things. Because of its popularity, I am seeing addresses that are really on the fringes or not in the Slope at all being advertised as Park Slope. If you have a particular address in mind, feel free to run it by me. Or if you would like assistance buying here, I would be happy to work with you as a buyer's agent. There isn't a nook or cranny of the Slope I don't know.
In my opinion Park Slope is a very safe neighborhood. It is a very close knit community where everyone looks out for one another. If you go to www.nyc.gov you can look up the police precinct or click on the link below: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/precinct_maps/precinct_maps.shtml
Once you have the police precinct you can then look at the crime statistics by clicking on the link below: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/crime_prevention/crime_statistics.shtml
