I have a question regarding the real estate market here in Greenpoint. I need some smarty pants agent or landlord to enlighten me about what I just found out.
My VP at work has lived in Williamsburg for awhile, she arrives via MO (not relevant). She has tired of her nabe, the L train, higher rents so on and so forth. So she comes and tells me she’s coming to Greenpoint!
VP – “I am going to be your neighbor; so tell me about the G train..”
Me – “Wow, that’s great! I tell all the cool places she will be near and pretty much what to expect from her commute.
VP – “I am really excited, for what I paid in Billyburg (she will now have a roommate), I am gettting a duplex with a yard!”
Me – “That’s so cool, good for you.. (I am happy for her; she is cool people)
Here’s where I am dumbfounded-
VP – ” Yeah and it’s “rent to own” so I have the option to buy and every month the rent goes into an escrow account…
Me – “Really?”
WTF, where is there rent to own in Greenpoint? This is not a new structure. She is living in an existing building.
So tell me people where can I rent to own? Justine has seen listings like this in Staten Island. I demand to know where else? Tell me people! While I am happy for her, I am seething jealousy. I’m sure that isn’t proper English… whatever.
Please tell me this is just amazing luck and everyone throws away rent money.
