Like so much else about South Williamsburg, its real-estate market recalls North Williamsburg in the early aughts: intermittently gritty, still a bit sleepy, and possibly ripe for an explosion. Prices remain (relatively) forgiving: Buyers pay $75 to $125 less per square foot here than for comparable properties on the north side; for renters, that translates to a 10 to 12 percent difference, with the rule being the closer to Division Avenue, the cheaper the rent. Here, six housing options currently on the market for would-be transplants.
237 South 1st Street, No. 1A
Few studio apartments come with a separate, private storage space”this one does. The postwar building is pet-friendly, too.
Price: $1,950 monthly

29 South 3rd Street, No. 1B
This 1,297-square-foot ground-floor duplex is technically a one-bedroom, but there’s a den off the foyer and an entire lower level that can be converted into a rec room. The unit also has a terrace, washer and dryer, and storage.
Price: $3,850 monthly

115 South 8th Street, No. 11
This renovated one-bedroom co-op is in a city-subsidized HDFC building. The price is tempting, but there’s an income-cap requirement for prospective buyers: $76,100 for two occupants.

112 South 2nd Street, No. 3B
This 565-square-foot one-bedroom is located in a brand-new, pet-friendly condo building. It has its own terrace, but you might never use it after glimpsing the building’s sweeping rooftop deck.

24 Dunham Place, No. 3A
The Williamsburg Bridge takes center stage through the humongous kitchen windows at this 780-square-foot one-bedroom. Another serious perk: a deeded indoor parking spot.
