2013 Looking Good for Manhattan Real Estate Market

Real Estate Agent with The Corcoran Group

Happy New Year 2013

Upper brosdway,Upper West Side

2012 ended in Manhattan with a very strong real estate market. There was increased activity during the last quarter. One of the busiest holiday seasons I've experienced. Activity was seen in all price ranges from "affordable" to "luxury" activity continued right through the holidays.

2012 ended with extremely low inventory and high demand. Properties priced right are in play. Many first time buyers as well as sophisticated buyers have realized that owning can be cheaper than renting.

With interest rates at all time record lows and rents continuing to rise, there continues to be a strong desire to own a home in Manhattan as both a primary residence and as a good investment. Many foreign investors continue to invest in NYC real estate as one of the safest and smartest places to park their money.

“The consensus is prices are going up,” said Pamela Liebman, chief executive of the Corcoran Group, which reported available listings down 16 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 6,514 — a seven-year low.

Hello Mitchell. My Mother, of blessed memory, used to say "rich or poor, it's good to have money." Interesting fact base, but good bad or promising, you will always do well.
