When is a two-bedroom too small to sell?
Q. I'm looking at buying a two-bedroom apt in Park Slope, but the bedrooms are extremely small (5'10"x14'1" and 8'2"x14'1").
I need a two-bedroom and can't really afford anything bigger, but do you think that the small bedrooms are going to make it difficult to resell in the future or are there enough buyers in Park Slope that would find this layout and lower price range desirable?
A. That all depends, say the brokers we checked in with.
“A small two bedroom if priced right will always have a buyer,” says Terry Naini, an agent who works in brownstone and downtown Brooklyn. “That said, the specific location, condition, and health of the building are paramount.”
A small two-bedroom close to multiple train lines and the park with low monthly charges will sell easier than one that is further from the trains, with high carrying costs in a walk-up building, notes Naini.
Manhattan broker Gordon Roberts wondered if your two-bedroom is actually a one-bedroom in disguise.
