Affordable NYC three-bedrooms for sale in every borough

New, 1 comment

It’s not easy to find but not impossible either


Finding a three-bedroom apartment at a price that won’t cause heart palpitations can be an arduous task in New York City. More space requires more money and in the city’s already overpriced real estate market, it’s a luxury (or in some cases, dire need) that many people struggle to afford.

In an attempt to make things just a tad bit easier, we’ve searched the market for some of the best options when it comes to finding an affordable three-bedroom home. Below is what we found in each borough (even Staten Island) at prices that stay below the $550,000 mark. While $550,000 may not exactly be the most affordable price point, it is about as good as it gets in many cases. After all, this is New York City and obtaining both a large space and a low price is like spotting a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Anyway, enjoy!

Staten Island

Coldwell Banker Reliable.

↑Staten Island’s real estate market isn’t necessarily a chock-full of three-bedroom condos and co-ops but you can score a whole house with said bedrooms at a decent price. For instance, this townhouse in Midland Beach spans almost 1,700 square feet and includes 1.5 bathrooms, a finished basement, and a parking garage for just $548,000.
