Manhattan Market Monthly Report | March 2014


Manhattan Market Monthly Report | March 2014  

Market Wide Summary

Low inventory continues to drive strong competition for available units across the market, with year-over-year declines in listed units in both the co-op and condominium markets.
Also occurring in both markets and likely affected by inventory, days on market is down year-over-year and buyer negotiability has dropped. 

This month 31% of sales were above their asking price and just 49% were below their asking price. Contracts signed decreased year-over-year but relative to last month the number of contracts signed increased significantly, up 35% in condominiums and 24% in co-ops. 

The year-over-year decline in contracts signed could be due to several factors; the unusually inclement weather and the decline in available inventory are both likely to have impacted sales. 

Price growth was less robust this month than recent months, however average price and price per square foot had modest year-over-year increases in both the condominium and the co-op market. Compared to last month, prices declined in both of these metrics as well as in median price. 

This is at least in part due to market share by unit type: three+ bedrooms were responsible for only 15% of sales this month compared to 19% in March 2013 and 28% in February 2014.
