East Flatbush is no longer affordable thanks to a few greedy ppl. Friends , we do it to ourself ! Why are we outbidding our fellow hidden 150 k on an old house that. Needs to be gutted.

May be the sad reality of what’s unwillingly (and not purposely) happening. FACT is people are looking to buy houses and FACT is, demand drives prices up, this is closest and walking distance to Crown Heights and now getting supermarket delivery, School bussing etc.. with established Minyan etc. so obviously you will find lots of Jewish families bidding at a ‘open house event’ of a house released to the market.. that’s called ‘demand’ and that’s the nature of it, unless you want to organize like a community council waiting list or the like. What do you suggest? Looks like your… Read more »

You are 100 percent correct. It’s is based on supply and demand . And bidding is normal but to outbid close to 200k !!! More ruins it for every other person looking after you bought the house . These owners are no fool and if they hear one person bought for 950 so will they all sell for that price . Is that honestly fair ? At what point do we say it’s enough ?!!!

If I can afford to pay more to get something that is in demand, why not pay more, to secure its purchase and save me time, negotiations and the risk of being outbid? I should think about some possible effect it might have on some next buyer of some other house? Maybe there won’t be another house. Maybe there won’t be someone who can overpay so that house will sell for less. All maybes. This house is a definite – either get or not get for me. Definite outranks maybe. and if supply demand has the price moving up, go… Read more »

They have worked to create the most beautiful community that has out of town warmth in the middle of Brooklyn! Kol Hakavod! May you go from strength to strength and have nachas from your family and the community you have worked to build!

Beautiful!

It takes great people to create such a beautiful community! Kol hakavod to Dovid and Tzivi Jacobs, who are too
humble to take the credit.

there are other options

A dozen families just moved to Centerville Indiana. (Google maps will tell you that it is in the middle of nowhere). With Chabad Houses all over, it is easier for us than for them. I am not knocking Crown Heights, the Rebbe’s schunah, but every family needs to figure out what works for them.

Aside for the neighborhoods circling Crown Heights, there are loads of places in the states circling New York.

Wonderful place and shul!

Its a wonderful area and shul! Way to go guys, you made and established a beautiful community..of course it could have never been possible without the work of the pioneers who saw the potential of the neighborhood. KOL HAKOVOD! Yirmi

Not the end of the world

..to walk the extra 8-10 minutes. This is a beautiful, young, Chassidishe community and close enough to have all conveniences of Crown Heights, Kosher deliveries, School buses, Mikvahs and babysitting when you need etc. together with the welcoming homey feel of a warm friendly and caring community. Some people may just be too ‘spoiled’ or closed-minded to not be able to have a grocery a block away or Kingston ave at their corner. I personally know people that currently live in the heart of CH but are looking to specifically relocate to East Flatbush solely because of the community atmosphere,… Read more »
