  • Riverside Drive & West End Avenue Report
    In most cases, the condominium market more strongly exhibits the effects of declining sales volume and prices than sales in the co-op market. New development that has been hit the hardest on the Upper West Side has been in the Riverside Boulevard area. Prices have recently come down on the Boulevard and sales have begun to pick up. While this stretch does not impact the Riverside/West End market directly (which is largely made up of co-op buildings and not much in the way of new construction), it does have a psychological effect on a buyer’s perception of the market.

  • Fall 2016 Newsletter
    The Manhattan residential real estate market in the first quarter was negatively affected due to several different developments both domestically and internationally. This was evident at the beginning of year when we normally experience an upswing in the real estate market – which did not materialize. Many have asked about the reasons behind the market sluggishness and why it continues to be lackluster. The answer is complex, multifaceted, and has been percolating long before the first quarter of 2016. Featuring in the fall issue The Current Market Review, Buyer Checklist, the Value of Preservation, Townhouse Snapshot, On the Market and Sales Sampling. Click here for the Fall 2016 Newsletter
  • Spring 2016 Newsletter
    A GENERAL REVIEW OF 2015 All statistics and reports on sales in 2015 are based on actual closed deals. In this regard, it is important to explain the trends of the market we have experienced and how they have affected the number of new signed contracts over the past year. In times of economic uncertainty, there is often a disconnect between data from closed transactions and newly signed contracts/new business. For example, some of the highest closed sales reported at this time will be the ones where a buyer signed a contract for a new development apartment a year or two earlier. The closed sales data should be referred to as “Reported Market Data” versus new business, which is “Real Time Data.” Read more: Download the Newsletter Spring 2016  
  • Fall 2015 Newsletter
    The 2015 spring residential real estate market was, by most accounts, a strong market. Sales prices and volume in Manhattan were up across almost all sectors. Based on the closed deals, the average sales price per square foot and new inventory increased over the same time period as last year. Some of the key causes behind the growth of this year’s market includes a continuing strong local economy led by job gains, a flourishing tech sector, low mortgage rates, and the highest average Wall Street bonus per person since 2007.
