Listings up, sales down in Manhattan - 11/24/08 02:09 PM
The number of apartments that went into contract or had accepted offers in Manhattan in October fell 20 percent from September, and declined 62 percent compared to October 2007, according to the Corcoran Group. The number of listings in Manhattan rose 33 percent in October compared to the same time last year, according to Miller Samuel. Jonathan Miller, president of Miller Samuel, said because of the lag time between contract signings and apartment closings, about 45 days, sales figures won't reflect the price decline in the market until the first quarter of next year.

Residential market halts in its tracks - 11/14/08 11:20 AM
Wall Street's recent wild volatility has caused the New York City real estate market to freeze in its tracks, with sales volume screeching to a halt and deals falling apart as potential buyers have watched their net worth evaporate. With the passage of the $700 billion financial rescue package on Oct. 3, analysts hoped the nationwide economy, mired in the credit crisis and housing slump, would show signs of improvement. Instead, the stock market saw wild volatility throughout the month of October, with frequent, jaw-dropping daily moves of 400 and 500 points. By late October, arguably the worst financial crisis since (0 comments)
Renter's Market in Manhattan? Manhattan vacancies at 12-year high - 11/13/08 04:21 PM
Vacancies in Manhattan apartments increased from 1.46 in September to 1.71 percent in October, a 12-month high. While Battery Park led all neighborhoods with a vacancy rate of 2.02 percent, vacancies were up in each of the other 10 neighborhoods tracked by Citi Habitats, including always popular neighborhoods like the East Village and the Upper West Side. There is also some downward pressure on rents, perhaps due to the uptick in idle apartments. Average rents for studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and three-bedrooms all fell modestly from September to October. Some neighborhoods are falling faster than others, however, and some of the most (2 comments)

New York's 20 Most Expensive Rentals - 11/08/08 01:48 PM
The stock market is down nearly 500 points this afternoon, we're in the middle of a deep recession, and tens of thousands of New Yorkers have lost their jobs.

The prices of dozens of luxe apartments have been slashed in recent weeks. And while the rental market hasn't been crushed just yet, prices are very, very negotiable. That $60,000-a-month rental? You might just be (0 comments)
Foreign buyers struggle to buy in U.S. - 11/07/08 02:31 PM
Foreign buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to purchase U.S. real estate as mortgage interest rates increase by several percentage points and down payments rise to 50 percent for some homes.

Landlords worry Senate will eliminate decontrol - 11/07/08 10:38 AM
Landlords in the city are afraid the now Democratic-controlled Senate will eliminate the vacancy decontrol law. Housing advocates expect to make a push to get rid of the law -- which allows landlords to charge market rates for rent-stabilized apartments once the tenants move out and the rent reaches $2,000 per month -- in the next legislative session. Landlords believe eliminating decontrol measures would harm real estate investment in the city, and hurt developers who were expecting to eventually convert apartments into market rate. (2 comments)
