The Market Speaks

Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President of Warburg Realty It’s lonely at the top. That’s what sellers and agents handling ultra-luxury real estate in Manhattan are finding these days, as the borough’s most expensive apartments and townhouses linger for months on the market. These units, priced at $8 million and above, receive few calls and fewer showings even as the lower end of the market, for properties of $2 million and below, remains smoking hot.

Why Would You Move?

Courtesy of Steve Blank with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty DENVER, CO – Over the past few decades people typically have moved about every seven years. That average has increased nearly 30%, mainly because of the recession (2008-2011). People have stayed in their current homes longer than usual, even though personal and family needs may have changed. Denver has experienced somewhat of a slow economy since 2001, eclipsing with the national recession, until the beginning of 2012 when it became one of the first cities to lead the country past the recession. Housing values in Denver have increased over 25% in the last three years and continue to enjoy a promising economic outlook. There will be a positive economic impact due to a recovering housing market as we transition to more normal conditions and higher levels of activity. The increase in home prices is helpful to a homeowner’s net worth, which needed to be repaired from the wealth declines associated with the recession.

We Can’t Fall Asleep on the American Dream

Courtesy of Frederick Peters, President of Warburg Realty Income inequality is in the news. The Democrats blame the Republicans for it, and the Republicans blame the Democrats. There is a long article about it in this week’s New Yorker. What seems beyond dispute is that incomes are more polarized in this country than anywhere else in the First World.
