The Price: $375,000

The median asking price for a home in Sunset Park was $1.4 million this January, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at a little over a quarter of the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Buyers who choose to stick with the 10% minimum down payment of $37,500 can expect to see monthly payments of $2,014. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,506 and a maintenance fee of $508. Plus, the monthly payment is right on the money for the median monthly rent in the neighborhood: $2,000 as of January.

Why You’ll Love It…

First of all, we’ve got to talk about this unit’s location: right across the street from Sunset Park and all of its sports fields, walking trails, and sprawling lawns. The building is pet-friendly, has shared laundry and common outdoor space; plus the unit comes with its own storage space in the basement. And the D, N, and R trains are about a quarter-mile away.

Inside, you’ll step into a foyer that’s open to the living room and kitchen, complete with a generously sized closet. The renovated kitchen has everything you need to cook at home, including a dishwasher and stacked fridge. The high ceilings also allow for lots of cabinets, and the glass tile backsplash offers a classy touch. Plus, throughout the unit, you’ll find northwest-facing windows and parquet flooring with inlaid trim.

The bedroom is located right off the living room and is large enough for a queen-sized bed. There’s another large closet in this room, too. On the opposite side of the apartment, you’ll find a windowed bathroom complete with a glass-walled soaking tub and shower combo.

… And Why You Might Not

This unit is located in a walk-up building, but it’s only on the third floor instead of the fourth — which is something. Plus, the co-op doesn’t allow for subletting. Additionally, the kitchen doesn’t have a lot of counter space, but there is a decent amount of cabinet space.

Despite all that, you’ll have a hard time finding a better deal in Sunset Park!
