Hello, to answer your question, the hot neighborhoods in Brooklyn like Clinton Hills, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, Ditmas Park, etc. are still holding their value. Sure their has been a dip in price, but you may never see a huge decline because those areas are still in demand. So in essence, the person on an average income may never be able to get into those areas, but you never know.
But there are many shifts in the neighborhoods during a market like this. Many people that live in areas like East New York can now afford properties in East Flatbush, Old Mill Basin and Canarsie.
Stay tuned to see what happens next.
