2013 Manhattan Real Estate Market

Happy New Year - 2013

2012 ended in Manhattan with a very strong real estate market. There was increased activity during the last quarter. One of the busiest holiday seasons I've experienced. Activity was seen in all price ranges from "affordable" to "luxury" activity continued right through the holidays.

2012 ended with extremely low inventory and high demand. Properties priced right are in play. Many first time buyers as well as sophisticated buyers have realized that owning can be cheaper than renting.

With interest rates at all time record lows and rents continuing to rise, there continues to be a strong desire to own a home in Manhattan as both a primary residence and as a good investment. Many foreign investors continue to invest in NYC real estate as one of the safest and smartest places to park their money.

Last night Congress finally voted to advert the fiscal cliff. Income tax will be increased for singles earning over $400,000 and couples earning over $450,000. The tax rate will increase from 35% to 39.6%. Capital gains and dividends will rise to 20 percent from the current 15 percent for the same income thresholds. In addition to the capital gain and dividend rates, health care reform will levy a new surtax of 3.8 percent on capital gains for those tax payers with incomes above $200,000/$250,000. The primary residence $250,000 single $500,000 capital gain exemption remains.

New York City has lead the country in economic recovery and job growth. For every 100 jobs that were lost in the national recession, the rest of the country has gained back only 40. In New York City, we’ve gained back 200. And those jobs generate tax revenue that in turn supports services in the rest of the country. New York City is the nation’s largest economic engine.

New buildings, both new construction and new conversions will come to the Manhattan market in 2013. New inventory is much needed.

On the Upper West Side, 101 West 87th began selling on December 7th, and already has many units in contract. The building features a mix of 62 one to four bedroom residences and a plethora of amenities which include a courtyard garden, garden lounge, children’s playroom, sky terrace, and a fitness center.

    The situation in the hotel business has been the same. More and more hotels raised their per night rates as there were more tourists in New York. If you try to search for some hotels in Manhattan NY you will find out that there are almost all way too expensive.
