Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – July 3

The luxury $4M and over market is continuing its 20 plus signed contracts per week run since January. Condos outsold co-ops 13 to 4. Last week we had 22 luxury contracts signed in Manhattan. Downtown with 11 signed contracts took almost half of the market share. The Eastside came in second with 8 contracts. The average days on market were 390. The average discount remained the same as the week prior at 7%.

Behind the Numbers

Behind the numbers- In spite of the slower pace and increased inventory the luxury market is experiencing a steady stream of above average numbers of signed contracts. The numbers are driven up by sellers becoming more about realistic about pricing. Buyers are responding to well priced homes and are moving forward with their decisions to purchase now.
Do you want to sell your home successfully in this current market? Then price your home at or just below market value to attract the highest level of interest that could result in possible multiple offers. Correct pricing is key in this market!
