For good value, Queens is a great option, reports Citi Habitats agent, Jessica Kaufman, who just helped her clients buy unit #7H at 67-40 Yellowstone Boulevard (pictured top) for $499,000.
Located in desirable Forest Hills, the top-floor two-bedroom, 1-bath co-op has a spacious living room and a newly renovated kitchen.
“My clients were so lucky to purchase this apartment for the price and obtain the kind of value you cannot get in Manhattan,” Kaufman explains.
Her buyers were repeat clients looking to move from The Lower East Side for find a larger space that will accommodate guests — and to eventually expand their family. “We looked in Woodside, Jackson Heights and all over Forest Hills and Kew Gardens.
“These neighborhoods have many beautiful oversized apartments and great prices. Smart buyers look here to get more space and bang for their buck.”
The apartment was listed for $529,000 and was on the market for 19 weeks. Boris Mikhailov of DOM Realty of NY Inc. was the listing agent.
