House tours are normally the domain of neighborhood groups, but this Sunday, November 16th from noon to 3PM, it's the brokerage firms getting them going. "The continuous price chopping of townhouses and brownstones has not resulted in any contracts signed among the major Brooklyn firms (Elliman, Brown Harris, Corcoran) over the last few months," wrote a rep from Elliman. "In an effort to step up the traffic and hopefully the chatter, a historic district home tour has been coordinated." Eight homes are up for gawking, priced between $1.6-$2.2 million, but no one real estate firm is taking charge; they're joining forces to combat the crummy market. "Just an example of how as the market shifts, so does the cooperation of real estate agents who recognize that sharing information and being inclusive is a strategy to court today's stand-offish buyers." If you go, please send some photos and a round-up. The tour begins at 306 Washington Avenue. It's free.
