From Harlem to Houston, The Manhattan residential market remained hot in 2022’s first quarter, with closings 44% higher than a year ago.
Most price indicators were up sharply from the first quarter of 2021, which was the market’s low point after the start of COVID-19.
Although 20% higher than a year ago, the average resale price was down from the fourth quarter of 2021.
This can be attributed in part to a decline in ultra-high-end condo resales.
Co-ops fared better compared to the prior quarter, as their average price was 2% higher than in 4Q21.
Buyers had to move fast in the first quarter, with apartments spending an average of 102 days on the market. That was 28% less time than a year ago, and the lowest figure since 3Q18.
The market continued to favor sellers, who received the highest percentage of their last asking price since 2017’s third quarter.
