Where oh Where have all the listing gone?

Asked by MPP, Brooklyn, NY Wed Oct 24, 2007

There is hardly anything listed in Brooklyn under the 450K mark. Where have they all gone? Are people afraid to sell their homes?

depends what area you are looking for, there are some nice homes in old mill basin in the lower 400's
you can get a decent new construction in ENY for under 5K or something in marine park in the upper 4's.

I think you just need a good agent to show you the way.

Manhattan, Brooklyn, Astoria and surrounding areas are not depressed and not suffering falling prices.

Contact your Realtor and ask to be put on an automated prospect match for your search criteria. If something comes on the market, you will be the first to be notified.

Well you need to look at areas that are not easily accessible into Manhattan, or at condo's coops to really find homes in that price range. I found over 700 listings on Trulia in Brooklyn within that category. Most homes of that price range, are going to be out East in Brooklyn, farther from trains and in two fare zones, where you need to take a bus to a train, or walk a long way.

There are literally thousands of homes for sale under 450k in Brooklyn. Please check out the old mill basin, marine park, gerritsen beach, east flatbush area. These parts of southern Brooklyn all have affordable homes under 450k. They range from 900sqft to about 1100sqft or so. Once in a while there even bigger homes you can get. If your looking anywhere in Booklyn with close proximity to NYC you can barely get a condo for 450k. Look in the more residential "real Brooklyn" neighborhoods. these neighborhoods are my speciality Ive sold over 12 homes in these areas in the last 2 months. If you'd like to contact me for more information you can reach me at:

There are plenty of homes available for that price range. You may have to compromise on what area of choice you are seeking. But because of the real estate climate we are currently in, you are in a position to purchase a home (even in a decent area) for below market value. Please contact me at 888-360-5757 x86 or along@corleyre.com for assistance.

Hello, actually there are many homes available in the Brooklyn area under $450K. There are many short sales where banks will accept less for what a seller owes is they can prove hardship.

Currently I have short sales for 1 family homes in East Flatbush Brooklyn. Feel free to give me a call now.

Hello, I specialize in coop and home sales full time for three years in Brooklyn. I can definitely advise that you use an agent that knows the ins and outs of dealing with a coop transaction. There are alot of details, paperwork and requirements to be met by the bank and by the coop board. Also in order to sell a coop an agent needs to understand how to explain what a coop is and how it differs from owning other types of properties.

Feel free to give me a call to answer any other questions you may have.
