The Stuttering Resales Market

February 12th, 2014 · No Comments

We are certainly in a seller’s market, with supply and demand heavily offset.  Condo sales in Williamsburg alone have risen close to 150% in the last decade.  Bidding wars have become the norm, as homes are selling for record highs.  With the opportunity to sell while the market is peaking one would assume to see […]

Williamsburg’s Newest Rental Development

April 8th, 2013 · 2 Comments

We have had our eyes on this project since it was a wet 2 story hole in the earth, and are pretty excited about the finished look.  The building, standing on the corners of North 11th & 12th Streets, on Bedford Avenue, looks much better then the renderings that were floating around a few years […]

More Views, Lower Cost

April 4th, 2013 · No Comments

A family member recently purchased this 3Bed condo on the 12th floor at Schaefer Landing, and while I must admit having reservations about the location, and building, this unit simply wowed me. The views speak for themselves.  For $1,260,000 the 1,650 square foot 3Bed/2bath was purchased at $764persqft, which in my opinion is a great investment for […]

The Right Time to Invest

April 3rd, 2013 · 1 Comment

It is clearly a sellers market, but does that translate into bad timing for investment?  As the resales market begins to surge, inventory is far below demand, pushing prices up into the clouds. The initial thought that likely comes to mind is to steer clear of investing in Williamsburg, for the time being.  This may not be […]

Get your Ax @ Main Drag Music

March 15th, 2013 · 1 Comment

We’re actually surprised at the lack of stores selling instruments and musical equipment in Williamsburg, considering it is has been a boon for creatives for more than a quarter of a century.  Main Drag Music is really the only store in the neighborhood that caters to guitarists and rhythm section players, but luckily for us […]

Brick&Mortar Launch

August 12th, 2012 · No Comments

For the past several months I have been in the woodshed, carving out a new concept for the inception of Brick&Mortar.  The Real Estate Brokerage has been born from the absolute need of true, quality customer service, in an area that desperately needs honest salespeople.  This environment isn’t an easy thing to create when misleading […]

The Overpricing Epidemic

February 6th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I have recently encountered what seems to be a reoccurring problem in the process of hunting for listings in my farm area.  While I typically create a CMA (comparative market analysis) to hone in on the proper list price for a home, I have found that most Brokers, and their associates, do no such thing.  […]

Is “Sleazeball” Synonymous with “Real-Estate Broker”?

January 3rd, 2012 · No Comments

As far as NYC is concerned, the answer to this blog entry’s titular rhetorical question proves a disheartening and resounding “yes”.  Let’s deconstruct this unfortunate state of affairs by identifying a few points of interest which may or may not be obvious to the unschooled outsider.  ‘Broker’ is the term commonly used to indicate the […]
