Hi Tina,

I'm an agent in Park Slope at Warren Lewis Realty, living in central Slope and the price range is approximately from $1.3 million (and 2 family brownstones have sold for about $1.3 in the past year) to $3 million. The closer you get to Prospect Park the more expensive the properties get. Barbara gave you some good information on taxation below. Also note that the more "families" that the building is legally allowed to house, the higher the taxes are. People have been able to adjust that when they are using the building only for 1 family, but it's difficult to do. The best place to look for all properties is the New York Times website real estate section. Virtually everyone advertises their properties there. With the more expensive properties they often don't hold open houses (shown by appointment only) but they do advertise them in the Times.

I am happy to assist you with your search. Please email me directly ( and I will call you or forward my phone number to you so you can call me.

Warm regards,

Hi Tina,

It's hard to get exact numbers on price and inventory for Townhouses in Brooklyn or Manhattan. There are many small, local Brooklyn real estate firms which don't co-broker their deals and god knows only where they advertise. In my opinion this does injustice to sellers who need to sell their homes and aren't aware that their broker isn't doing everything they can to sell it, directly or co-broker.

Looking in our system alone, there are 8 two family homes on the market and 5 3 family homes. It's possible that I would be able to find few more properties by doing a more extensive search for you and walking the neighborhood.
Price range for these buildings is $699,000 at the lowest end and $2,995 at the highest.
Ultimately it will come down to the building size and your lot/block.

Anything specific that you were interested in, or specific blocks?

I'll be happy to meet with you and discuss this further if you like. How does SouthSide cofffee sound?

Feel free to email or call me.

There are only a few two family houses in Park Slope (above 17th St) currently on the market, and their asking prices range from $1.3 million for a wood-frame house on Prospect Avenue, to $1.5 million or so for a nice, under 20' wide house in the north Slope, to over $3 million for an extra-wide landmarked mansion in prime center Slope.

Taxes vary depending on the lot size, square footage, and the number of times the property had changed hands -- in the above examples, taxes range from $2K to $7K to per year (and it isn't the most expensive house that has the highest tax bill).

Your best bet is to work with a real estate broker who is completely "plugged in" to this very small market. Many high-end properties are never openly advertised for sale, due to their owners' desire for privacy. Please let me kow if you would like any further information on any of these listings.

Happy New Year and good luck with your search.

If you don't have an agent, now is the time to call a few Realty offices, interview a couple of agents and choose the one you like best. He/she will guide you best, as far as pricing, comparables sales, showings,etc.
