Vaster has funded the essential investments of thousands of Americans in the prime real estate markets of New York City and Florida. Backed by Fortune International Group and the Related Group, we offer expansive loan programs so that you have access to the most competitive rates and terms available.
Recently, our loan officers assisted one of our clients with the purchase of a Brooklyn townhome. This deal required a very fast close and quick financing approval. Although the timeline was tight, we were able to make it happen for our client.
Let’s take a closer look at this Brooklyn townhome deal and explore how Vaster can help you find your next investment in the same way.
An Overview of the Deal
Vaster’s client initially wanted to purchase a 2019 townhome with about 3,200 internal square feet. The property had several important amenities and features that made it a great choice for our client's needs. Our client hoped to purchase the property quickly and rent or develop it for their own goals.
As with many of Vaster’s clients, the Brooklyn townhome client had a tight closing window before the property would be potentially available to other buyers.
What Amenities Does This Townhome Offer?
The townhome was a beautiful property with several decks, a scenic balcony, and even a private garage. This made it a prime townhome property, ideal for renting and generating passive income.
What Plans Does the Client Have for the Property?
Our client wished to purchase this property in the waterfront district of Brooklyn for investment purposes. It was only built a few years ago, in 2019, so it was a top pick for investors due to its quality, newness, and few to no expected maintenance issues.
How Did Vaster Help the Client Reach Their Goals?
Vaster quickly got to work when our client reached out to us in search of financing to close the deal before time ran out. Our client needed to close the deal quickly because they wanted to use the extra proceeds to purchase another investment property.
With a target financing goal of $4,300,000, Vaster was able to supply the client with exactly what they needed to close the deal in under 10 days.
What Makes Brooklyn the Perfect Investment Location?
Our client isn’t alone in searching for top-tier properties in the Brooklyn area. Brooklyn is an exceptional investment location for a variety of reasons.
Brooklyn Is One of NYC’s Trendiest Boroughs
For starters, Brooklyn is perhaps the trendiest borough in New York City. Why?
One factor is convenience. It’s easy to live in Brooklyn and still enjoy many of the major amenities and features of Manhattan, since getting to lower Manhattan is only a half-hour or so away by public transportation. Plus, living in Brooklyn means you’re adjacent to glorious Big Apple skyline views.
Brooklyn is also popular due to the high number of trendy shops, restaurants, galleries, venues, and more. And that’s not to mention all its green spaces. Brooklyn might not have Central Park, but it does have many other quiet and nature-focused alcoves for walking one's dog or enjoying the fresh air outdoors.
Many of the best Brooklyn properties belong to neighborhoods within walking distance of major attractions and amenities.
These popular neighborhoods include:
- Park Slope
- Carroll Gardens
- Prospect Park
- Bay Ridge
In many ways, living in Brooklyn allows renters to get the experience of living in New York City without being quite so crowded.
Apartments in Brooklyn Are Coveted
Apartments in Brooklyn are desired by renters, buyers, and investors alike. Many of the apartments and single-family homes for sale are beautiful and historical, including brownstones with lots of closet space, outdoor space, and ample indoor square footage.
According to some sources, it is more expensive to get a quality apartment in Brooklyn than in Manhattan itself.
For example, the median rent in Manhattan for the first quarter of 2022 was $3700 per month. For the same timeframe in Brooklyn, rents ranged from $3075 to $5000 per month. That makes it a prime choice for real estate investors looking to earn passive income.
Those prices aren’t even the upper limit of what one can charge for quality real estate throughout Brooklyn. A recent Penthouse on Livingston St. was on the market for two months — yet quickly secured a renter paying an incredible $40,000 per month in 2022. This property is now the priciest rental in the entire borough.
The bottom line? Landlords and savvy businesspeople are quickly discovering the value of investing in Brooklyn.
NYC Offers Tax Benefits for Real Estate Investors
Investors are also increasingly looking into Brooklyn for their next portfolio addition because of tax benefits. For example, the Income Tax Credit or ITC applies to any businesses that make investments in buildings, machinery, or equipment. It counts for 5% of the first $350 million, plus another 4% of any money spent above that amount.
Put simply; investors can both save on their taxes and generate lots of passive income by investing in Brooklyn real estate.
