7 Stunning Brooklyn Properties on the Market Right No

7 Stunning Brooklyn Properties on the Market Right Now

According to Douglas Elliman’s second-quarter 2021 report, residential real estate in Brooklyn reached new records for the third straight quarter. There were 3,427 sales, up 124.7% from the year-ago quarter, reaching the highest second-quarter total in 14 years. Rentals saw a spike too, with 2,141 new leases signed—the highest total in June since 2008.

Lindsay Barton Barrett, a broker with Douglas Elliman, says that Brooklyn has what buyers want in a post-COVID world. “You have lots of large town houses, more green spaces, and more space, in general. As a result, high-end properties are in demand and attracting some wealthy buyers who would typically only live in a trendy neighborhood in Manhattan.”

From a historic town house with a contemporary new look to duplex penthouses in amenity-laden buildings, our roundup of seven of the most upscale properties currently on the market in Brooklyn follows. Spectacular views are only one of their many perks.
