Own for the price of rent! It's a buyer's market ... a chance to buy your piece of The Apple - and build equity - for the cost of a rental!
Welcome to this gut renovated home in one of the finest, best-run, full-service co-ops in Downtown Brooklyn, with all the amenities you could hope for. This perfectly proportioned and thoughtfully designed east-facing studio is move-in ready, offering abundant light, new thermal pane windows, and lots of closet space. The floor plan is efficient, making the most for a comfortable lifestyle: a foyer with two large closets, a bathroom with an en-suite dressing area, and an oversized living and sleeping area. And the low common charges make the cost of owning this home comparable.
