Actually prices of homes in Marine Park, Brooklyn, NY have not dropped. When you see prices of homes in Marine Park, Brooklyn, NY selling for less its value its because that particular home needed some kind of repairs or renovations. The homes where placed on the market with its value but once several buyers took a look of the interior found that some things where not updated. This is why you need to interview an ERA franchise company agent who can give you the detailed transaction process of marketing your home so you can get the most of your value. You can reach me at or 9172951179 to connect you with associate broker who will work on your behalf. ... more

Consider working with an agent of your own, or check local print media for by owner rentals, always verify ownership before exchanging any money; word of mouth, etc.

I think there is one on E.37 Bet T&U just around the corner. A large semi attached house with private drive, not a realty home which are smaller houses between R& Fillmore and up.

What is your price range? ... more

Good morning Anna Maria,

I've been helping First Time Buyers for 23 years as a mortgage professional and I will tell you what I have always told my clients here in New York: If you are a First Time Buyer, steer clear of foreclosures and short sales.

Foreclosures are someone else's headache. The home probably has not been well-maintained and you're a First Time Buyer adjusting to paying a mortgage. Do you really want to walk in the door to someone else's deferred maintenance that YOU will have to pay for? Also, if you're thinking there are deals to be had in terms of lower prices, mostly those "deals" go to professional investors who can pay cash, negotiate hard with a Lender, and close fast.

For Short Sales, my attitude of late is that First Time Buyers should steer clear. Short Sales tend to be a better deal for the homeowner than for the Buyer. You'll wait MONTHS for the homeowner's Lender to approve the short sale; maybe as long as Six or Seven Months. Meanwhile, you're stuck in a contract to buy that home. I closed a short sale recently with a Buyer who, after seven months said this at the closing table, "I don't even want this house anymore."

And he didn't even get the "deal" on price he thought he was getting! The house appraised for only slightly more than he paid for it at the short sale price. He walked into this deal thinking he was buying a home for $100,000 less than it's value. In the end that wasn't the case.

There are plenty of motivated Sellers with their homes listed on your local MLS. Go find a good Local Mortgage Banker, get prequalified, then find a great, experienced Realtor, and buy the home you want at the price you're willing to pay. It's a Buyer's Market, after all!

I do work with USDA and FHA loans primarily in Yadkin and Davie Counties in the foothills of North Carolina should you wish to relocate to our area. I would be happy to recommend a local lender with whom you could discuss your particular financial situation and see which loan program you could qualify for. You do have to meet certain income limitations for USDA loans and with FHA loans you have to be able to put down 3.5% of the sale price as a down payment. This is a beautiful part of North Carolina and a great place to raise kids if that is a concern for you. Visit my website at to check out the area listings and let me know how I can help! ... more
