Rental pick of the week

This Flatbush two-bedroom rental comes with discounts, and there may be room to negotiate more

You'll definitely want to go out and kick the tires on this one, as these photos are described as being for "sample purposes."


This two-bedroom, two-bath rental is in a new, 16-unit development and seems emblematic of the market in Brooklyn these days, wherein landlords are having difficulty filling high-end, recently constructed apartments. This broker fee is waived for this unit, which is listed by MNS rent of $2,177—after you factor in the free month of rent you were supposed to get for moving in by October 1st.

That date has come and gone, so we suspect there's room to negotiate for even more now. 

Note that the photos below are described as being for "sample purposes," which means you should take a very close look at the actual apartment in person to ensure it lives up to the listing. 


The open living and dining area (see main image) features hardwood floors and is illuminated through large windows and recessed lighting. The kitchen, tucked into a corner, is equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and what looks like a decent amount of storage space. There also appears to be under-cabinet lighting. 




The two bedrooms are adjacent to each other, and each has its own closet and en-suite bathroom. The bathroom pictured here has a soaking tub and eye-catching tile, though with its small vanity, you may find it a bit short on storage space. 


In addition to the in-unit washer and dryer, you'll have access to perks including a shared terrace and roof deck, as well as storage space. The building is half a block from the 2 and 5 trains at Newkirk Avenue.
