-The de Blasio agenda and the changes that could be taking place
-The rezoning of Midtown East and the new air rights
-The condo concern: how will high end luxury projects like One57 effect other projects in the area

Sales Keep Rising

Although the third quarter of 2013 ended with low inventory, the sales kept rising. The number of sales was at a 30% increase from the same period last year. With the market being so competitive, 44.2% of units sold at or above their asking price. With such a competitive market, the pace is extremely fast with a 3.6 month absorption rate.
If you are looking to purchase an apartment, we highly recommend moving quickly as most apartments these days receive multiple offers within one weekend of being on the market. One of the best ways to prepare yourself is to speak to a mortgage broker and have your preapproval letter in hand.

Making Studios Luxurious

This apartment, designed by architect Rick Joy, is such a clever use of small space. It goes to show that ANY space can be transformed into a luxurious apartment with the right materials and design. We love the clever way that the table and the arched light separate the bedroom area from the living room.

Rentals in Demand

Landlords, pay attention!! The most in demand neighborhood last week for renters was the Upper West Side with the top ranked feature being a new or remodeled unit. This is a huge deal maker/deal breaker for most renters. As brokers, we find that the majority of our clientele wants something new, fresh, and modern. Stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, and new cabinetry would sure go a long way!
