Closings of Note: No Alarms & No Surprises

On Platinum Member radar since last August, 356 2nd Street was a 3-Family in Park Slope that wanted $1.1M after the crash, $1.5M after the bounce, and those lurkers at Rutenberg swooped it up for $1.3M this Spring.  It closed for that price last month.

Corcoran brought you a modern renovation in Cobble Hill at 282 Clinton Street, bobbing around since January with a list price between $3.5M and $3.75M.  Closed last month for $3.585M.

473 Union Street was a tiny play on the Gowanus-y end of Carroll Gardens cheaper than many condos trade for over here.  We covered it not once, but twice, since 2010 - and it finally closed last month for $785K.

While some were still chasing unicorns in Park Slope in January, Prudential Elliman dropped an 18' wide corner property on a great block in Bed-Stuy for $1.29M.  271 Jefferson Avenue had original details to gush over and some rental income that people in Fort Greene would be jealous of:

It barely lasted a month on the market and closed last month for $1.2M.

Meanwhile, a rehab company picked up this 20' x 50' 4-Family on the same block in Bed-Stuy at 221 Jefferson Avenue for $500K.

499 16th Street was a small 2-Family around the corner from Prospect Park in Windsor Terrace that many couldn't understand at its list price of $1.495M.  Someone picked it up last month for $1.365M.  How amazing do 1612 10th Avenue and 144 16th Street look now??

It's not going to win any beauty contests, but this corner property at 354 Bond Street in the Gowanus-y end of Carroll Gardens with parking spaces did list with Brown Harris Stevens for $1.25M and eventually find its price.  Self-proclaimed as "the virtual heart of this destination neighborhood" near "the ultra hip Gowanus Grove hipster hangout", it sold last month for $1.11M.  Try not to let the mishaps of the local moms get you down.

65 Pineapple Street, a Brownstoner House of the Day in Brooklyn Heights this Spring, lists for $3.1M, has a contract in 2 weeks, and sells for $3.3M.

Long before low-ballers were whiffing on a 3-story beauty in Park Slope like 365 6th Street, the 4-story beaut' at 428 6th Street was already in contract just below its asking price of $2.49M.  Some thought they were ready for a low-ball offer, but they were actually just in contract as we'd supposed.  This 20' wide 2-Family between 6th & 7th Avenues closed last month for $2.435M.

777 Union Street was a small 3-Family listed as an "architect delight" for $1.4M in the Spring.  After a contract in under 2 months, it closed for $1.51M last month.
