Happy New Year! 2010 Manhattan Market Optimistic

Sales activity picked up during the last quarter of 2009. The holidays are traditionally a slow period.

Sales increased in the fourth quarter over the third quarter. Most reports indicate sale prices in the fourth quarter of 2009 are down 10% from the 4th quarter of 2008.

Buyers are buying. Many people feel the market may have bottomed. Inventory is down. The extended buyers tax credit has helped. Not only are 1st time buyers eligible, the income cap has been raised helping more New Yorkers including existing home owners also eligible for a tax credit on home purchases up to $800,000. until the end of April.

Although banks are much stricter with lending, mortgage rates are still low for qualified buyers.
