Brooklyn Monthly Market Report | March 2018

Market Wide Summary

The Brooklyn market experienced a year-over-year increase in contracts signed for the third consecutive month. Strong new development sales in South Brooklyn, driven by contract activity at 2128 Ocean Avenue and 26 East 19th Street, sustained from the previous month into March. However, Brooklyn price metrics showed mixed trends compared to March 2017.

Average sale price improved compared to last year and last month skewed by Cobble Hill and Park Slope townhouse sales.When excluding those high priced townhouse sales in Cobble Hill and Park Slope,average sale price was essentially level and the average price per square foot increased 5% versus March 2017.

Average price per square foot, also affected by t he high priced sales Cobble Hill and Park Slope, increased 9% versus March 2017. The difference from last ask price to sale price was 0.9% below the average asking price, slightly deeper when compared to last year. The average days on market figure of 87, while up year -over-year, still indicates a very competitive market in Brooklyn.


Days on market dipped from last month’s five-year record high of 105 days to 87 days in March, but was up 17% year-over-year. Days on market has been above the Brooklyn five-year average for five consecutive months as higher prices and an annual increase in newly listed apartment inventory slowed buyers decision-making.


Newly listed apartment inventory continued its expected seasonal climb after declining during the winter months. In addition, newly listed apartment inventory grew 17% annually as more apartments were introduced in March 2018 compared to last year. The number of apartments introduced this month set a new seven-year record high as sellers anticipated the Spring selling season along with the launch of Brooklyn Point and the relaunch of Austin Nichols House.
