Real Estate Roundup: Marked Down Deals

Real Estate Roundup: Marked Down Deals

Hot on the heels of a mayoral election, we found ourselves thinking of the “the rent is too damn high.” While we here at BKLYNER do our best to find the finest deals in the county of Kings, it seems nothing can shape markets like plain ol’ supply and demand (pursuant to incentives, etc.) Fortunately, it seems as though rents might be starting to tick downward thanks to the flood of new housing that has, in part, reshaped the skyline of Brooklyn and its denizens.

Rents have continued their downward trend of the last six months, per October’s Douglas Elliman report. This is in keeping with the trend BKLYNER reported on back in March.

A (glass and steel and) concrete example of this – the new towers along Flatbush Avenue were not quick to occupy their surfeit of stock. Meanwhile, talk of Kensington’s prices required a downward adjustment.

Finally, Curbed reports that the city’s supply will continue to grow into 2018. What does all of this mean? That there is a renter’s market. Take advantage of some of these marked down deals.
