Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – January 23

The Manhattan luxury $4 million and over market showed signs of thawing out last week! 18 contracts were signed versus the anemic 12 signed contracts in several prior weeks. However the average time on market soared to a whopping 787 days and the average price reduction was 20%. These numbers were skewed by a couple of new development sales that spent years on the market at aspirational prices. The downtown market led with 10 of the 18 signed contracts. Condos outsold co-ops 13 to 3.
