Manhattan Townhouse Market Report

Real Estate Agent with The Corcoran Group

Manhattan (Brownstone) Townhouse

The Corcoran Group published the Manhattan Townhouse Annual Report. The report is a survey of closed sales market-wide in 2010 (as compared to 2009).  It surveys several distinct markets, as well as the luxury high-end, breaking out single-family homes from multi-family ones (for the purpose of the report, multi-family townhouses contained two, three or four units only; buildings with more were classified as apartment buildings and were not included).  Only arms-length transactions are studied.

In 2010, there were 196 market-wide townhouse transactions, a 61 percent increase over 2009. Both the single-family and multi-family sectors increased in sales volume, by 68 percent and 54 percent, respectively, versus 2009. While both markets improved sharply in sales from a year ago, price performance differed considerably.

In the single-family market, median price grew 6 percent from a year ago to $5.825 million while average price per square foot increased 8 percent to $1,619. Multi-family townhouse sales, however, decreased 3 percent in median price to $1.65 million while average price per square foot decreased 12 percent to $709 per square foot.

Interesting numbers, Mitchell.  All the doom and gloom constantly reported in the newspapers, certainly get dispelled by actual activity... if only people would understand that the media is being 'paid' to be promote the negative.

Mitch, I lived in an old brownstone at 46 E 83rd that was chopped up into about 10 apartments.  I think it's now a condo.  It's hard to imagine having a whole townhouse all to myself.

The market here is a unique animal when compared to other markets. While a dip has occurred here, it is far from the slump seen in other parts of the country. Excellent post Mitchell.

This is great news.  So much for the doom and gloom about prices continuing to tank....It has implications for Westchester too.

It's the most expensive Real Estate in the country. It must be fun to show those homes.
