I found it hard to believe this report when I first read it - but it seems it's genuine.
The Brooklyn housing market is so hot, a slick realtor is asking half a million dollars for a glorified tool shed in Gravesend.
The faded yellow 1-bedroom “home” at 86 Bay 47th Street is a measly 12 by 26 feet and is built with aluminum siding, like some backyard sheds.
. . .
“It’s a legal, single-family home. It’s a teeny tiny house, the smallest one I’ve ever sold. There’s also partially finished basement, ” Mussolino of Ben Bay Realty told The Post.
He added, “It used to be a flop house for pets, mostly pit bulls. So it needs some work.”
The lot, which is 20 by 97 feet total, sits a couple blocks from Coney Island Creek, one of the Big Apple’s most polluted waterways.
There's more at the link, including a picture of the 'home' in question.
A 12'x26' house, on less than one-twentieth of an acre of land, for half a million dollars??? With a floor area of about 300 square feet, that's smaller than quite a few travel trailers I've seen on the roads!
