Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – July 10

The Luxury $4M and over Manhattan real estate market continues to enjoy its 23 week run of 20 or more signed contracts . 20 Contracts were signed last week even in spite of the long July 4th holiday. The Westside really surprised us with 8 signed contracts and tied with downtown who usually comes in first. Condos outnumbered co-ops 13 to 5. The average discount was 5% down from the 7% the prior week. The number of days on the market were also down to 269. Typically they are averaging over 300.

Behind the numbers – Last week there were 2% drops in the average discount from the asking price and a 31day drop of the average number of days on the market. This data is further evidence that prices are becoming more realistic. As a result buyers are moving forward and taking advantage of a market that is more favorable to them.
