REBNY's Meeting - The State of the Manhattan Market

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

KSI Realty New York Inc.’s Broker and President, Marc-Henri J. Kijner, attended a panel discussion at the Real Estate Board of New York where top brokers and industry leaders discussed the state of the Manhattan market.

The 421 A program that was created by Mayor Bill De Blasio expired last January and experts composed of attorneys and industry leaders argued that due to the lack of tax incentives, developpers would most likely slow the development of affordable housing projects. Hence putting further emphasize on the hot market of the sub $3 million price range.

Resale units tend to stay on the market for less than a couple of days and buyers are competing even more to snatch their dream property. Higher cash reserves and better credit scores can certainly help strenghten the approval by the boards of both co-op and condominium buildings that prospective buyers are looking at.

New developments are generally not offering discounts but Attorney Steven Matz, one of the managing directors at Katz & Matz, expressed that they are seing more and more concessions on bigger deals such a free storage units being offered, upgrades given on fit and finish, or credit applied towards the transfer fees to attract buyers that are comparing with more affordable resale units, which tend to be larger but often in need of full gut renovation.

The conversation continued on the topic of rental market. Afterall, 70% of the real estate market in Manhattan is comprised of rental properties. Many brokers including myself, argued that June is the official kick-off month for the appartment hunt that thousand of new comers will engage in until late September.

There is no better time than now to find new rentals whereas landlords have updated, refurbished and repainted their units to attract as many quality tenants as possible. Using the help of a qualified and diligent licensed real estate salesperson can turn out to be an invaluable investment to help tenants snatch the best properties as soon as they hit the market. 

We at KSI Realty New York, believe that clients should sit down with our expert agents and discuss their needs. We help our valued customers pin point their area of interest based on their search criteria and finally draw potential property matches with the help of our online 
search tool.

During this panel discussion, we also talked about the emerging areas of Manhattan and everyone agreed that Harlem with Hamilton Heights was the most promising area. With beautiful browstone townhomes that can be up to 50% more affordable than their equivalents in the Upper West or East side of Manhattan, these products are a must buy! The extended subway lines on 2nd Avenue is also benefiting South Bronx and quality and affordable properties are also looking very promising for prospective investors.

Global Perspectives August 2015: Guiding Buyers Beyond Your Borders

Ask the Expert: US Realtor

by Kijner & Sons International Realty

Kijner & Sons International Realty
is pleased to share a recent report from
World First, UK first foreign exchange broker offering currency exchange and international payments to private and corporate clients in the UK and abroad. Laura Kijner, international real estate specialist with KSI Realty in France and Thailand and, Florida Realtor® with Fortune International Realty in Miami, Florida is featured in their July 29th issue on investment and relocation to the U.S.  

To read the full article by David Trumper, see below:

If you’re thinking about moving to the US, you’ll be aware just how many considerations there are – the actual buying of the property is one of the last things you’ll have to sort out!

Florida Realtor Laura Kijner has helped lots of people in their move to the US, and in this edition of ‘Ask the expert’, she explains some of the things you need to consider. 

In the U.S., every state has different rules and regulations, so wherever you are looking to purchase a property, you should get the relevant information.

Investing or buying a vacation home abroad is quite different from actually moving and living overseas!  Usually, people that have successfully moved to the U.S. have conducted their due diligences – they’ve gone to visit, they know the area, maybe they’ve been there for ten years for a month every year. Moving to the U.S. can be a long process. A lot of people don’t realise that getting the proper visa or even a green card is not an easy task.

Ask yourself the right questions

Do you already have the proper structures in place to facilitate your move and the acquisition of a property? Do you have a U.S. bank account? Do you have all the necessary funds available for an investment? How about currency conversion? Are you a cash buyer? If you need a loan, it’s probably best to check with your financial institution at home since, as a foreigner, you are unlikely to have collateral or a credit history in the U.S. You need to be ready, willing and able! And to be so, takes preparation.

Get to know the place and its people

Make sure it’s right for you and your family. Adapting to a new culture and environment takes time. You need to see yourself working and living there for the foreseeable future. If you are moving with your kids, you will need to think about schools and later colleges. Even to run the simplest errand, you are most likely to drive your car around. Do you have a driving license? Are you fine with driving at least an hour a day? Make sure you find a property in a neighbourhood you like, that is safe and convenient, a place where you can easily commute to and from work.

Drive, walk around, check various neighbourhoods, talk to some agents, talk to fellow expats who have moved to the U.S. and who will give you honest feedbacks, talk to an attorney, a wealth manager and a CPA about what’s involved – it’s about just getting that information.

Many foreigners do not know that dual agency is illegal in Florida. A real estate licensee may enter into a brokerage relationship either as a transaction broker – offering limited representation – or as a single agent with prospective buyers and sellers.

See a house you like? Go for it, whoever you’re signed up with

In the U.S., all real estate agents, with no exception, have the same access to the available properties in their market with the exact same conditions. As members of the Miami Association of Realtors, we offer access to the MLS (Multiple Listing System). The MLS is a tool where, in the words of the National Association of Realtors, brokers share information on properties they have listed and invite other brokers to cooperate in their sale in exchange for compensation if they produce the buyer. Sellers benefit by increased exposure to their property. Buyers benefit because they can obtain information about all MLS-listed properties while working with only one broker. Thus, it doesn’t matter where you find your dream property. Even if it’s not listed with the company you signed up with, your real estate agent will call the other agent and they will cooperate with each other to ensure a successful transaction.

The purchase of the property is the last thing we would take care of. You’re not going to put your trousers on when you’ve already put on your socks and your shoes!

Do things in the right order. If you are not ready to take the plunge yet, you can always sign up for listing alert emails on a realtors’ website – like this one. By signing up to alerts like this, you’ll get a good picture of a place’s real estate market – in this case, Miami – from prices to inventory and you will be able to monitor the changes over time. What you see today might not be available 6 months for now when you are actually ready to buy. Be informed!

Finally, there are many costs associated with the acquisition of a property. These costs depend on your own project, the selected property and its location, laws of the State of Florida, of the County and the City as well as on professionals and/or other providers you are likely to select from Attorney to CPA (Certified Public Accountant). Some fees are negotiable, other not. Some are recurring, other not. Most people are first time investors with very little knowledge of the acquisition and relocation process in the U.S. As a consulting firm, we are here to help and we offer tailored packages for a fee for those in need of full assistance.

Laura Kijner works with Kijner & Sons International Realty, which specialises in investment opportunities and income producing properties in South Florida.
