April 29th, 2014 · 1 Comment

When you are forced to vacate your home due to a fire or natural disaster how do you relocate?  When these homes burnt up last year one of the occupants approached us hoping to find new digs.  Unfortunately the tenants of these 3 buildings were paying far under market value for their apartment rentals and […]

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 […]

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.

Our Rental Pick of the Month

April 1st, 2013 · No Comments

For $3,200 and one free month, averaging $2,944, we feel that this 850sqft 2 bedroom is a great deal.  The multifamily dwelling houses 6 apartments that are undergoing a top to bottom renovation.  This particular space is on the 3rd floor (top), and boasts skylights throughout the apartment, keeping it nicely sun-lit all day long.

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 […]
