New residential projects are coming online fast and furious, but some have expressed concern about how quickly they can be absorbed  When sales launched at the Baltic in Park Slope back in 2016, the condo building had the market to itself. But then things started softening, and more nearby developments started launching sales. By the end of 2018, there were about 1,000 condo and rental units on the market in just that one neighborhood. To sell the remaining apartments with that new competition, the project, developed by Michael Stern’s JDS Development, had to change its strategy, said Robin Schneiderman, the director of business development at Terra Development Marketing, which oversees Halstead Property Development Marketing and Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing, the latter of...

One of my 2019 new year's intentions is to attend more concerts and last night on December 30th, 2018 at Barbès in Brooklyn NY, momentum to that one intention has already taken place. Usually when in Brooklyn, I'm on business conducting Feng Shui Consultations, so it was great to be leisurely and enjoy the richness of the art community. So, what makes Barbès so special? Its a bar and performance space for local and international musicians. And wow!! Are you in for treat with who preforms there! This hidden gem provides a very intimate platform for top performers to serenade the audience. My husband and I had the great pleasure of seeing, meeting, and listening to Stephane Wrembel, the French and American vernacular musician. His playing falls into the general umbrella of Gypsy Swing, ye...

In New York City, space comes at a premium.  Putting down a huge chunk of your monthly income for a place to call home is the reality New Yorkers deal with.  New York is also the capital city of dreams, dream makers, and creative minds that come together and wonderful things are created.  For example, Edward Franklin Albee III, an American playright wrote "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" at 50 West 10th Street in Manhattan, and "Hello Dolly" writer Jerry Herman lived in his converted 1869 stable.  The English poet, Wystan Hugh Uden, arrived in New York in 1939, he lived on East 23rd Street, and eventally settled into a second floor apartment in Brooklyn Heights.  His living quarters were so cold that the toilet no longer functioned, and he ended up using the toilet in the liquor store a...

View Apartment Details HereLiving in New York City has it's own set of challenges unique to different neighborhoods and boroughs.  Yes, sometimes it is irritating to live in the city, some say it is too loud, or not enough action.  Some say living close to where you work is the best gift you give yourself, while others say having some space is better for the soul, otherwise you are always at your office if it is too easy to get there.  If you love the Opera, Broadway, and the myriad of entertainment options then living within walking distance of these venues is the ticket for some, while again, others claim that is not worth the extra rent you pay each month for a smaller sized unit.  To each his or her own as far as where to live in New York.  We all tend to gravitate to own best Neigh...

             Looking at the market for home sales can feel daunting.  Are you wondering if you have the right "secret sauce" in making a decision.  How will this neighborhood likely change over time? Will there be additional commute options coming up? What are the status of schools in the area? Will you be able to capture your dollars on the end game when you sell?

Brooklyn Q4 2016 Report Williamsburg Bridge   The 4th Qtr. 2016 saw continued 2016 trends of record sale prices achieved and challenged inventory levels – less availability at the lower end of the market and increased inventory at the high end. Contracts signed this quarter were almost level with the previous quarter, but market-wide closed sales and contracts signed were lower this quarter than a year ago. Closed sales, which reached an all-time high in the fourth quarter of 2015, declined 26% in the fourth quarter of 2016. Contracts signed were 1% less than 3rd Qtr. 2016 and 12% below a year ago. Inventory played a role in the softening of sales this quarter.   Despite a 13% market-wide overall increase in inventory to 2,267 units, the persistent lack of inventory at the lower end of...

Upon entering the Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, along the wall you saw a quote by John Tucker Battle. "The greatest wealth a man may acquire is the wisdom that he gains from living. and sometimes out of small beginnings, come the forces that shape a whole life." We are always so caught up with how much money we can make, we forget how wealthy we all really are. Learn to become present and have gratitude with your days here on earth, and you can become some of the most wealthiest people in the world.
