Manhattan Monthly Market Report | April 2014

Manhattan Monthly Market Report | April 2014
April 2014 showed indicators of a market that is continuing to tighten; price negotiability shrank, days on market dropped in all categories, fewer units than ever before were signed below their asking price, and average price as well as price per square foot rose. 

Generally, smaller units saw bigger gains in price per square foot versus April 2013, particularly in the cooperative market where buyers may be looking at smaller units to find more affordable options. Condominium units saw strong year-over-year gains in all three price metrics, while cooperative unit prices held close to steady. This month had the lowest market share under $500K since we began tracking the statistic in November 2007. 

Inventory declined year-over-year by 10%, continuing the multi-year decline, however with a less dramatic drop than experienced over the prior 18 months. While cooperative units experienced another month of year-over-year decline, the condominium market saw the first month with a year-over-year gain in total listings in over four years. Likely a result of inventory which is still very low, sales volume declined again this month, down 12% versus April 2013 in the condo market and 8% in the cooperative market.

For property owners thinking of selling, there has never been a better or more advantageous time since before the financial collapse of 2008. For buyers looking to act in this market, swift and aggressive action is called for. Whichever you may be, I invite you to contact me with your questions about this report or about the Manhattan real estate market in general.
