Curbed features a Brooklyn Heights property as park of its “Six Digit Club” feature. Commenters there are weighing in on the 1BR/1BA coop’s price point, $539K, which the site feels is low. However commenter “Folly Benz” says”
This isn’t a remarkably low price by any means. It’s more than $1000psf, which is already a bit high for a co-ops in BH, except it’s a 4th floor walkup with a bad layout. In reality, it should be asking less than $500k. The apartment below it sold for $499K in 2011, except that apartment had a gigantic terrace. Would it kill Curbed’s writers to exercise a modicum of critical thinking once in a while?
Curbed: The highlights of this 1BR/1BA co-op on the fourth floor of a 12-unit brownstone building on Brooklyn Heights’ Joralemon Street include the high ceilings, crown molding, recessed lights, and wide-plank flooring. For all that, and in the location it’s in, you’d think it could ask a bit more than the $539,000 it’s listed at, but maybe the tiny kitchen has something to do with that. As is, it seems like a pretty decent deal, and the brokerbabble brags that it is “quiet, serene and private, overlooking a church roof and stained glass windows. Uniquely situated away from prying eyes.” As far as hideouts go, you could do worse.
What do you think?
