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.
