The Brooklyn Real Estate Market is On Fire!

Brooklyn Real Estate Market is Hot!

Come Feel the Heat
The news is great! The New York Post just published some numbers that show the Brooklyn Real Estate market to be hotter than ever!  With Manhattan rent costs rising, and apartment sizes shrinking, people are flocking to Brooklyn and all it has to offer. The desire to purchase in Brooklyn is strong as many Brooklyn entrepreneurs are opening new businesses and wish to live where they work.

Residents can enjoy fine dining, museums, and stunning visual vistas that are just a walk away. Brooklyn is not only the new cultural hotspot, but also offers a variety of cozy neighborhoods and great schools that are perfect to raise a family. Proximity to transportation and Manhattan is also a huge draw.

Numbers Don’t Lie
Record low mortgages and more reasonable sale prices are joining to boost property sales in Brooklyn…  Sales of everything from condos to brownstones leapt 6% higher than the same period in 2010.
Co-op sales rose almost 28% over the past year.

Sale prices dropped almost 6% for Co-ops and 8% for luxury properties over 1 million dollars. Real estate properties in Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens and Fort Greene had the highest average sale price of $745,330.

As supply and demand shift and prime properties get snatched up by savvy buyers, values have nowhere to go but up… Every purchase is an excellent investment!

Strike While the Iron is Hot!
Record low interest rates and present values make this the time to buy. Stop paying your landlord’s mortgage. Become the landlord!

Buy, Invest, Live — Brooklyn is the place to do it all.

Every Journey starts with a first step. Call today to discuss your future in Brooklyn.

Hello world!

Hello, and welcome to our blog!

Awaye Realty
Your Friendly Neighborhood Real Estate

As this is our first, we thought we’d take the opportunity to introduce ourselves…

We are Awaye Realty, a boutique Brooklyn Real Estate firm located in historic Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. You’re probably wondering what makes us different from other realties…

For one thing, we are a smaller company, which is an asset to our clients. It means that whether you’re a landlord, buyer, seller, or prospective tenant, you are not just a drop in the bucket to us. We are able to strategically focus our resources, and make sure that our service is always exceptional and customized to our clients’ unique needs.

This brings us to another point. Don’t let our size fool you! We have an administrative team dedicated to marketing our properties in dozens of the most powerful venues on the web and in print. When it comes to marketing Brooklyn real estate, we know that if a property doesn’t get proper exposure, it might as well not be on the market.

Another thing that makes us stand out is Awaye Realty Management, which is a property management company under our umbrella. This not only gives us insight into tenant/landlord relations, but also allows us to set a standard for the real estate in our inventory. We know what a well-maintained building looks like. Being property managers also allows us to offer a big variety of “no fee” listings.

Currently, we have a fantastic team of 14 licensed sales people (we’ll try to highlight some of these guys in upcoming blogs), all of whom have their own strengths and passions. What they share is drive and a love for Brooklyn properties.

Awaye Realty was founded in 2003 by our President and Broker, Arlene Waye. (A… Waye … Get it?) Arlene has been a Licensed Real Estate Broker for 20 Years, and has over a quarter century of Real Estate experience in Brooklyn. She has managed Residential and Commercial Real Estate and Developments in the New York Market for decades!

With our expertise and Brooklyn roots, we can help you with all things Brooklyn Real Estate!

Brooklyn Condos, Brooklyn Co-Ops, Brooklyn Homes, Brooklyn Rentals… We are your neighborhood Real Estate experts, and we hope that you will turn to us, first.

Now that we’ve been properly introduced, we hope you’ll read more from us.

In future editions, we’ll be highlighting our team and the myriad neighborhoods that make up our favorite borough. We’ll let you in on the best schools, eateries, parks, and events.

Most importantly, we will provide you with true insight into the Brooklyn Real Estate market– stats, mortgage rates, and more.

We hope to see you soon.

All the best,
Team Awaye
