Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – April 19

The $4M and over market had 15 signed contracts last week representing the lowest total since January. Is the luxury market losing the steam it gained in the first quarter or is this just a temporary pause? We shall see! For the first time in ages midtown tied with downtown for the number of signed contracts.

The biggest news in the luxury market last week was the signed contract of 1 Sutton Place #7A . It represented the highest recorded price ever for a co-op sale in the Sutton Place – Beekman area.
