Manhattan Luxury Real Estate Report – September 10

Last week marked the strongest post Labor Day week in the Manhattan $4M+ market in 12 years! With 20 signed contracts, condos outpaced co-ops 15 to 4. No surprise, downtown led the market again. What’s behind these numbers? Well, half of the signed contracts were new developments.

Selling Your Home This Fall?

Thinking of selling your home this fall? Take a hint from these new developers, who are offering attractive discounts and offers to get their units sold. Price your home at or just below market value and make sure to hire a broker with a strong background in marketing properties.
