In Fort Greene, Hype Crests

In Fort Greene, steps from Frank Gehry's forthcoming insta-skyline, real estate agent hyperbole is also hitting new heights. Reports blogger Set Speed:

In what could be a sign of a crest in the Ft. Greene condominium market, Lee Solomon of Brown Harris Stevens hedges her own ambivalence on how hot the market is in Brooklyn. In this ad in craigslist, she states: "What's the catch? This building seems to be selling out quickly. And I'm not just saying that to rush you in any way. So please don't hesitate, call today if you think this might work for you...Priced well at $795,000."
Concludes Set Speed, "So it seems like it might be selling out quickly. Has she mentioned that it's been on the market for at least one month, with one accepted offer that was quickly pulled and that they had to lower the price on one of the units?"
