Manhattan Condos - New Developments - Conversions - Resales: April 2010

Upper West Side First Quarter 2010 Market Report:

 

Bidding wars in the 1st Quarter of 2010 - Two Bedrooms in Demand

Buyers are buying because they need a place to call home, and not for investment purposes.

 

RESALE:  UPPER WEST SIDE

West Side co-ops had solid median price increases versus last quarter, including a 17% climb in two-bedroom median price.

Compared to last year, all bedroom categories are down in median price, except two-bedrooms. But with more sales of larger apartments, overall median price still increased 11%. Resale condos increased 4% in median price from a year ago, but decreased 4% in average price per square foot, now $1,381. Versus Fourth Quarter 2009, resale condos increased in median price by 7%, to $1.018 million, and increased 2% in average price per square foot.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS:  UPPER WEST SIDE

The West Side new development market saw declines of 26% in median price and 25% in average price per square foot from First Quarter 2009. The median price of a West Side new development was $1.39 million while average price per square foot was $1,212, a 21% and 7% decrease from Fourth Quarter 2009, respectively.

Every bedroom type decreased in median price from a year ago. The Rushmore 80 Riverside Boulevard accounted for two-thirds of West Side new development closings this quarter.

The window for buyers to act on their advantage may be short-lived. Market activity is significantly higher in 2010's First Quarter than it was in 2009, and we are seeing an increase in property coming on to the market.

I will be tracking this closely over the spring and summer months, and would welcome the opportunity to answer any questions about the report or the market generally.
