New York City records show the median price in the month of April for an apartment in Brooklyn was $753,003. This price represents a significant uptick in the median price, just over 10% from  last year’s median price of $682,228. The volume of sales year-over-year jumped considerably from 269 to 488 an increase of 81%

So, what does $753,003 get you in the borough of Brooklyn? Today we’ll take a look at the two apartments that fall closest to the median price for April 2021. 

Apartment 2 at 437 Putnam Avenue is a newly converted condominium located in a turn-of-the-century brownstone in Bedford Stuyvesant.  This parlor floor residence combines ornate pre-war features with a modern renovation.   

The two-bedroom, two bath floor-through totals 827 square feet and offers a split-bedroom layout with a kitchen that opens into the living room.  Highlights of the home include a working fireplace with a richly detailed mantle, beautifully preserved window cornices, tall ceilings, exposed brick and a washer/dryer.  The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops.

437 Putnam Avenue is a four-story townhome that was converted to residential use in 2019.  The building contains four two-bedroom floor-through apartments.  

Apartment 2 was represented by Noel Borbon of Triplemint. The property originally hit the market in September 2019 at $875,000 with another agency.  The closed price of $752,500, about $910 per square foot, was 14% off the original ask.  To view this apartment on Linecity, click here
