Market Update: Brooklyn, NY

In case you are not familiar with Brooklyn New York, let me give you some of the facts…

  • The estimated population of Brooklyn is approximately 2.6 million
  • Also known as Kings County, Brooklyn is the 7th largest county in the U.S.
  • Brooklyn covers approximately 71 square miles
  • Brooklynites represent over 90 different ethnic groups, 140 nationalities, and speak over 130 different languages

Brooklyn truly is a melting pot and the market conditions and property values vary from neighborhood to neighborhood. On the high end of the Brooklyn market you have many areas that are still realizing appreciation in property values. These areas include Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Williamsburg and several other neighborhoods towards the northern tip of Brooklyn. There is always strong demand in these areas due to the easy commute to Manhattan (minutes via bus or subway). These areas offer much more bang for the buck when compared to prices in Manhattan.

On the flipside, there are other neighborhoods in Brooklyn that are hurting right now due to the mortgage crisis that has affected our entire country. Areas like Bushwick and East New York are experiencing foreclosures at record numbers while many homeowners are trying to negotiate short sales with their lender so as to salvage their credit ratings.

This Market Is Not “Business as Usual” – It’s “Brutal as Usual”

"It’s important to re-train, re-think, and respond in kind with the re-tooled knowledge and skills to practice real estate effectively in one of the most challenging times in our history."

My real estate broker/manager came to me recently to ask if I would speak to the sales group at our weekly staff meeting about some of the things I’ve been doing recently to account for the amount of sales production I’ve had in the first half of the year.

First, I would like to state upfront that I hate “boasting” or sounding like a hubristic boar (I’m a great man – in my own mind) and I am a firm believe that once you start getting a big head about how great you think you are, you stand to lose your focus and things can take a turn for the worse.
