These under-the-radar neighborhoods offer prices that are significantly below the lower end of the price ranges found in the more familiar neighborhoods," says NeighborhoodX co-founder Constantine Valhouli.
Buyer beware, of course: some of these apartments in income-restricted buildings, and many are rather far from transportation or a neighborhood center. But at these prices, that might not be so bad.
Check out a few of the apartments below:
↑ Located in Brooklyn’s East Flatbush, this studio apartment in a co-op building is asking just $99,000. While no one can really argue that the apartment is overvalued, it is nonetheless more than a mile away from the nearest subway station.
↑ With a king-sized bedroom, living room and a large kitchen, its hard to believe that this Bronxville one bedroom is asking for only $90,000. In terms of transportation, the neighborhood is both automobile and commuter friendly, with the apartment within minutes of both the Bronx and Pelham Parkway along with the 2/5 trains.
↑ Built in 1928, this recently renovated apartment features hardwood floors, large bedrooms and plenty of closets. For $62,291, you will be able to live in an two bedroom only a block from the 6 train. However, if you are moving with kids it is important to note that the local school district lags behind the rest of the city.
