Two co-op open houses in Queens this weekend offer a great opportunity for first-time homebuyers

Queens Daniel Gale Douglaston 1

The first glorious weekend of spring will soon be upon Queens and it’s sure to bring with it avid prospective homebuyers, who’ve been chomping at the bit these past few weeks for good weather to do some serious house hunting.

Don’t be left behind. In this volatile real estate market, homes are being scooped up almost as quickly as their listings are posted.

There are two co-op open houses featured below. Co-ops are the perfect option for first-time homebuyers, who may not be ready to handle the cost or all the additional responsibilities that come with a traditional house. And yet, co-op values rise just as steadily, if not more so! Plus, we have for your viewing pleasure the listing and photos of a grand home in Douglaston, a 1920s classic Tudor packed with beautiful features.
