WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

Magellan- A Thoughtful Buying Process

You are buying the Address
BOTH Ocean Ave and Midwood
Midwood for its pre-Hollywood film making history-it was this power of the arts that may have ascended Williamsburg 20 yrs ago
Ocean Ave for its varied historical architecture- including Landmarked buildings.
You are buying History.

You are buying the Brand- Magellan
Magellan - one of Pioneer, First - "Infusing local history with contemporary art"
We instill Character, Spirit, Appearance
We care about the Value of your purchase.

When its time to resell, the above are important compared to other aged buildings.
Ask yourself, does this building have Brand, Character or Spirit distinctly identifiable?
For resale value, Buy the Different.

Possibly Undervalued?

Possibly Overlooked ?- based on area comparison, possible buyer demographics shift, and Midwood's pre-Hollywood history?
Midwood ($600-700/sf) may be a safer investment in event of a downswing- compared to the north brooklyn. With similar subway convenience nearby, this may encourage buyer shift to south Brooklyn.
Flatbush, directly below Prospect Park, is already around $900/sf. May Midwood be possibly next in line on being possibly price influenced? Pls read our Disclaimers.

Unique Amenities rarely found elsewhere- FREE Bus shuttle to B/Q subway (wkday morning, to compensate the additional 15 min subway ride from Williamsburg/ProspectPark to Midwood - for those living now in North Brooklyn)
FREE Housekeeping(weekly)
* All FREE services guaranteed 1st yr, subsequent yrs up for total buyers voting.

Midwood - "the" Zen, without the need for mountains
Aspirate the Dew of origin.
Midwood - Most Ethnic.
According to article by New York Magazine, "Because Brooklyn and Queens Are Competing to Be the Most Diverse Counties in America (and Maybe the World)", based on the demographic diagram, it could be extrapolated that Midwood/Flatbush area may be the most ethnic area in the world, by variety and density.- a historical jewel of Harmony.

The "Magic Transporter of time and place"

"All the different gestures, the purest, rawest frowns, laughters, smiles, yawns, jiberish all culminated to that one single moment of realization-where millions of dreams, hopes, yearns of past, present and future all bridge to that one single moment-the moment where all of me touches the origin." - mentioned poetically by a local resident.

"The bliss didnt come from the mountains, nor the trees, the grass, nor meandering rivers.
Nor was it about any single moment.
Its a process over time, that all of a sudden triggered the realization.
The realization that helps us re-discover the bliss - the bliss that has always been within us."

"Its not a bliss where its temporary, where you have to be near it to feel it- as in mountains -
and if u leave it, its gone.
Its a feeling that stays sublimely with u, no matter where, what , when."

Ever wonder why we crave for travel to India, Africa, Tibet and all those countries?
Come experience the pure, the raw, the origin.

Come experience Midwood- the ALL in One.

The Romanticism of Midwood- originally a Dutch and English settlement, Midwood is a Dutch word-meaning Middle Wood, has a romantic feel to it- much to the likes of King Arthur or Robin Hood- due to its origin of being an isolated dense forest, mysteriously displaced in a city. As a result, it has countless variety of trees and they are everywhere- truly a explorative city oasis.

Come Experience the Greatness & Unusual-Pre-hollywood history + the Ethnic Cool vs the Metropolitan

Other attractions include our 360 view roof top garden laid with grass, mini-golf, electric massage chair, yoga mats.
Centrally Located to subway B Q lines, bus lines, all highways, multi ethnic eateries, shopping centers.

Why Midwood
A. The Opportunity
One of glorious historic film and television origin that predates even Hollywood- in fact Midwood can be said to be the original Hollywood. However this fact may not be well known, thus an opportunity, as industry may soon realize the difference and play catchup to this possibly undervalued (priced at a steep discount to Williamsburg/Dumbo) situation. Local non-profit Midwood Developmment Corp. has been working on revitalizing the area's former historic glow in film/television- its historic roots unmatched by any area of Brooklyn. Midwood, which limited area is only 10 avenues by 30 streets, is home to renowned actors such as Woody Allen, Marisa Tomei, Beastie Boys founder Adam Yauch, and films/shows like Godfather, Cosby Show, Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live. Vitagraph Studios built the first US modern film studio in 1906 and became the most prolific American film production company by 1907, producing many famous silent films, the world's very first aviation war film in 1911, the world's first animated film in 1897, and produced some of world's first movie stars. In 1952, NBC bought part of Vitagraph Studios and rename it NBC Brooklyn- its presence transformed Avenue M into the likes of Broadway and Hollywood, with stars like Sammy Davis Jr, Rolling Stones, Sonny & Cher and Tina Sinatra, Roy Rogers performing there in tv shows. When NBC Brooklyn Color Studio 2 was built , it was the largest color TV production studio in America.

Aside film-making, Midwood is also notable for John Kennedy's and Robert Kennedy's campaigns and speeches here in the 60s. Another historical noteworthy is during the Revolutionary War, the British chased after George Washington's army through Kingshighway prior to the War of Brooklyn.

B. Possible Migration of renters/ buyers from
northern Brooklyn (Williamsburg/Prospect Park areas-avg $1200/sf) moving slightly south
and western Brooklyn (Sunset/Boro Park- avg $800/sf) moving sightly east-
for more affordable prices, possible cash flow savings, and possible appreciable upside.
All these may portend favorably for Midwood ($600-700/sf).

C. Strong Economic Support of tight knitted local communities.

D. Close to many multi-cultural eateries/retail, it is potentially the next desirable market, comparable to already prominent matured developments in Flushing and Brooklyn 8th Ave- yet priced at a sizable discount.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
