The Most Popular Brooklyn Homes for Sale in 2018
If the New York City real estate gods were to fashion the perfect home, it might just be this Park Slope 3-bedroom. The central location, in-unit washer and dryer, and private outdoor space take care of the practical stuff, while the reclaimed wood accent walls, exposed beams and painted white wood floors take the interior style to the next level. It’s no surprise this piece of heaven was the most popular apartment in Brooklyn in 2018.
A duplex penthouse with a private roof deck and skyline views is not the typical piece of Park Slope real estate. The combination of modern layout and amenities and classic location of this 2-bedroom, however, has clearly caught the attention of StreetEasy shoppers. The original listing got nearly 800 saves; the unit has since been relisted and is now racking up saves once again.
A good price and a whole lot of convenience come together at this 1-bedroom condo in Fort Greene. The apartment is located in a brand-new, doorman building and comes with a practical layout, washer and dryer, and three closets. Despite having income restrictions ($95,030 for individuals and $108,550 for couples), it entered contract in fewer than 80 days and was the third-most popular sale listing in Brooklyn this year.
The Most Popular Brooklyn Rentals of 2018
Perhaps StreetEasy users who weren’t ready to commit to a $1.2 million Park Slope condo eyed this 1-bedroom rental instead. The apartment has brand-new everything, and is situated on top-notch block close to Prospect Park. No broker’s fee and great views? Sounds like a recipe for the most popular rental of 2018.
With more than 700 saves, this studio was the third-most popular rental in 2018. Renters will certainly appreciate the apartment’s sunny interior, prewar details and proximity to Prospect Park and the Q and B express trains. They’ll also appreciate that it’s rent-stabilized.
