Listings: 2-Family in Bed-Stuy - 104 Malcolm X Boulevard

When one of our favorite Bed-Stuy specialists said there was nothing west of Malcolm X Boulevard available anymore for less than $1M, it sounded like a sign of the times.  New to the Listings section of the blog, it's 104 Malcolm X Boulevard asking $875K.  This 20' wide 2-Family between the J and A/C trains in Bed-Stuy is currently set up as an owner's duplex with a rental upstairs.  Interior pictures show some original detail and some unique decoration...

Even the kitty made its way into the corner of this pic...

The Bushwick end of Bed-Stuy can be a plus or minus, depending on who you ask.  We've seen some great rental values over here, and this probably fits the bill as a condo alternative for lots of folks.  Make a few updates and max-out the finished basement.  Keep the yard paved, or greenify that badboy further.  "Fruit-bearing Asian pear tree" in the back?  Check!

Pro's:  totally legit turnkey 2-Family, under $1M, original details, backyard

Con's:  too far east for some, not everyone's down with the J train, updates to be made

Ideally:  we see a happy compromise coming here
