The Halstead 4th Qtr Market Report 2017 From Harlem To Hollis

January 27, 2018

Halstead’s Gastiaburo + Stella team reports that the average Manhattan apartment price fell to $1,921,671 in the fourth quarter, its lowest level in over two years. Fewer luxury closings of both new developments and co-ops, were the driving force behind the 7% decline in the average price from 2016’s fourth quarter. While the number of closings was 4% higher than a year ago, the Brexit announcement and U.S. presidential election led to a very slow fourth quarter of 2016.

Looking at resale apartments, their average price of $1,482,721 was 2% lower than a year ago. Co-ops saw a slight uptick in prices, while condo prices were on average 4% lower than 2016’s fourth quarter. Smaller apartments fared better than larger ones, with the median apartment price 3% higher than a year ago.

Like 2016, increasing uncertainty and a surplus of luxury apartments led to a sluggish fourth quarter for most of the residential market. With tax reform now law, more pressure will be placed on sellers to adjust their prices to the new realities of the market. Once this happens, we should see a release of pent-up demand similar to what occurred at the beginning of 2017.
