Julia Hoagland Shares Manhattan Residential Market Report: Fourth Quarter 2013

Posted by Katie Spencer — January 7, 2014

1389111393NEW YORK, NY - There were tiny glimmers of hope over the last quarter for a turn toward balance, with time on the market increasing to 83 days from 79 and discount to last asking price increasing to 1.6% from 1.5%. Year-over-year the market continued to perform very strongly despite the average price for an apartment declining 2% to $1.55M, as the decline was solely due to the proliferation of high-end sales in 4Q12 due to the tax laws changing.

The average co-op price dropped 18% to $1.12M; the high-end co-op market was most heavily sold in 4Q12. Condo prices rose 14.9% to an average of $2.16M ($1562/SF)-all categories of condos were up with 2BDs posting the highest gains at 19.7%.

Although building permits are slowly increasing, the sum of units filed between 2009-2013 still barely exceeds the number brought to market in 2008 alone. As a result of this persistent low inventory environment, Manhattan absorption rate remains very low at 3.1 months.
