Crown Heights Winners Don't Last: 1259 Dean Street

In case you've been living under a Park Slope rock for the past few months, chasing $1.5M shells and underbidding $3M+ winners, you might not have gotten the memo that Crown Heights is pretty hot right now.  If you missed (or struck-out underbidding on) turnkey, sub-$1M Crown Heights winners like 1142 Dean Street or 931 St. Marks Avenue, here's your chance to drop $1.3M on a beauty.

Oh wait, no it's not... it's in contract already.  That's right, nothing good over here lasts a month, even at these pricepoints. 1259 Dean Street came out 5/31/2012 with no pictures and a showing set for no sooner than June 10th. Then quickly de-listed in a few days, back on the market the next week, now, "OFFER ACCEPTED. - OWNER SUSPEND SHOWING OF THE BUILDING!!!" This from the same agent who brought you 1310 Pacific Street already in contract the day it hit the market. If you had this nice of a place to sell, you wouldn't wanna co-broke either!

This 20' x 50' barrel-front 3-Family will wow you with its original details, surprise you with its pricepoint, and infuriate you that it's gone long before you even had a shot at it.

Pro's: curb appeal, great block, size, original details, true 3-Family, true backyard, incredible value

Con's: it ain't a steal, it ain't available

Ideally: don't be tardy to the party

  1. We're told this closed a few days ago for $1.05M - a truly solid pick-up!
