Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – March 20

The robust Manhattan luxury $4 million and over market continues for seven weeks in a row with 26 signed contracts. The condo market outpaced the co-op market 18 to 3. The number of signed contracts were fairly even across all locations of Manhattan. Typically downtown leads the market. Five of the signed contracts were in the $10 million and over range. The average days on market were 409 and the average discount from the original asking price to present asking price was 14% demonstrating that sellers are moving further to meet the buyers in negotiations causing more contracts to get signed. This will be the first issue of the Pulse Weekly where I will be using video to give you highlights of the Pulse.
