The Price: $640,000

The median asking price for a home in Greenwood was $1.5 million this January, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced at less than half the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $128,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,817. This includes a mortgage payment of $3,348, common charges of $459, and monthly taxes of just $10 thanks to an abatement!

Why You’ll Love It…

This condo enters into an open living and dining area that shows off the unit’s gorgeous hardwood floors and great south-facing light. That light comes from the glass door out onto the terrace, which is large enough for some furniture and overlooks nearby townhouse gardens. Say hello to your new springtime oasis!

Inside, both bedrooms have windows facing the terrace, meaning you have even more southern exposures. Both bedrooms also have a sizable closet, making it a true 2-bedroom unit, which can be hard to come by in NYC. But there’s even more storage space in the unit, provided by a closet between the bathrooms and a large walk-in off the kitchen.

Speaking of the bathrooms and kitchen, all provide up-to-date finishes and features. And yes, there are two bathrooms: one full bathroom with a tub/shower combo and one half-bath, perfect for guests or getting ready in the morning. The kitchen features black granite countertops and backsplash, two-tone cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances, including a Fisher & Paykel drawer dishwasher.

To top it all off, this apartment has central air conditioning and is found in a building with bike storage and a laundry room. The R train stops less than a quarter mile away, and the F and G are nearby as well. There’s also a slew of restaurants and eateries within a few blocks, including Luigi’s Pizza, Baked in Brooklyn, and Greenwood Park. The Greenwood Cemetery is also just a few blocks away.

…And Why You Might Not

The building doesn’t have an elevator, but thankfully this unit is just one flight of stairs up. The dishwasher also isn’t full-sized, but it’s still a great feature to have. Lastly, the living and dining room space is a little awkwardly shaped and sized, but should be able to fit a decent amount of furniture.

So if you’re looking for a great unit in Greenwood, be sure to check this one out!
