Home of the Nets and 2.6 million other New Yorkers, Brooklyn’s multifamily market has been on a rise compared with same quarter last year. Brooklyn’s Multifamily market rose 18 percent from 2017’s first quarter reports, with sales volume this quarter coming out at $1.3B. Square-footage pricing also increased, up 18% percent from last year to $397 dollars on average. Average selling price went up, to $366,000 – a difference of 18% percent from this time last year. Total transactions were a bit less, down 7% percent to 436 in 2018’s first quarter.

The Multifamily market is trending progressively higher in the past years first quarter. Brooklyn’s top sales are still numbers to marvel at. The top sale of 2018 can be found in Prospect Heights: 461 Dean Street sold for a cool $156,000,000 in March. At a $468 a foot

Even that enormous price, however, doesn’t garner many square feet in the most opulent neighborhood of Brooklyn. The top ten most expensive neighborhoods this quarter were as follows:

Carroll Gardens, with townhouses, brownstones & beautiful parks, tops off the list at an average of $910 per square foot. Cobble Hill comes in second at $856, with Boerum Hill coming in third at $758. Park Slope listed at $696 per square foot, Williamsburg at $626, Brooklyn Heights at $570, Prospect Heights at $558, Clinton Hill at $483, Greenpoint at $479 and, tenth but certainly not least, the Fort Greene area averaged in at $450 per square foot.
