STATE OF THE MARKET

1ST QTR 2021

There is much to celebrate about this Q1 2021 Report:  

  • it has the highest number of closed sales of any Q1 since 2017, when the market began it's slow decline.

  • the number of closed sales surged 28.7% (!!!) over Q4 2020.

Sales are being fueled by low mortgage rates, pent up demand, strong stock market performances, an improved sense of safety with the acceleration of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution and greater affordability (average prices and average price per square foot were both down in Q1, and the median sales price for new development was down approximately 24% both year-over-year and quarter-to-quarter).

2ND QTR 2020

Welcome to the Second Half of 2020, and it couldn't have arrived quickly enough; surely it will be better than the first half!  Between COVID-19, social unrest, volatility in the financial markets and massive unemployment, my colleague asked me, "What else could possibly happen?"  Personally, I am grateful that we survived Q2 and for the lessons learned.

3RD QTR 2020

As predicted in the Q2 2020 Report, where pending sales and new contract signings were way down as a result of the COVID shutdown, the number of Manhattan sales plunged by nearly 50% year-over-year in Q3.  This is the second straight quarter of record low sales.
