The neighborhood analysis site NeighborhoodX rounded up the 10 most affordable properties for sale in a Brooklyn neighborhood that's gotten attention for its affordability: Sunset Park.

The analysis only looked at market-rate properties, excluding foreclosures, short sales and properties with rent-controlled tenants in place. Pricing ranges from $299,000 up to $580,000. For some context, the median sales price in the neighborhood is $453,000, according to StreetEasy. Price per square foot on the 10 properties ranged between $415 and went up to $753.

Constantine A. Valhouli, Director of Research for NeighborhoodX, said the two lowest-priced properties (both asking $299,000) should be considered outliers, each in their own way. "One requires an all-cash transaction, thus forcing a discount," he said. "The other is a basement condo, and basement spaces command less per square foot than do properties that are above-grade." With that in mind, here's the breakdown of all ten units, from the most affordable to least.

Price: $299,000

Size: Two bedrooms, one bathroom, 750 square feet

Price per square foot: $415

Details: This co-op unit is an outlier because "it's priced at a discount because it can only be purchased on an all-cash basis," said Valhouli. There are no photos available for the unit, which is located in a 1940s brick building.
