The Spring Market is launching!  This article analyzes where the Townhouse and Condominium market sectors currently stand, and where we think they are headed this year:

  • In 2022, the rebounding Upper Manhattan real estate market was again cut short by a mid-March turn of events!  Sound familiar? Well, it wasn’t another 2020, but there are similarities. 
  • If you are buying or selling in 2023/24, your Real Estate Advisor should be directing you to take note of historical trends of 2009/10 and 2020/2. Remember, history repeats itself!

  • In late March 2022, the record Federal interest rate hike plan was launched, and economic uncertainty sent the real estate market scrambling. 
  • Upper Manhattan saw a record number of properties enter the market in 2022 but this was balanced by a record number being removed from the same market.  Plus, 50% of listings in 2022 showed discounts while on the market.   
  • The Urban markets are responding city by city as the Upper Manhattan Townhouse and Condominium Markets continue to prove their underlying strength.

Condominium Market – Record Sales, Driven by New Development

  • While Upper Manhattan Townhouses have held their value through the major economic market shifts over the past 5 years, the Condominium Market in Upper Manhattan has benefited from increased volume, and sale prices.
  • There was a record number of sales in 2022, driven by new development, low entry price points, and high rents. 
  • If you didn’t buy your condo yet, no worries, there are 33 more new developments currently approved/underway!

Market Outlook

  • My Upper Manhattan Outlook is simple this year.  Buy!  Then consider refinancing in 2-3 years.
  • The Condo Market will remain a solid investment through 2023 but buyers should take it slow and make sure their advisor knows, not just what’s on the market, but what’s coming to market.
  • Townhouse Buyers will benefit from increased inventory resulting in more quality townhouses to choose from than we have seen for the past 7-8 years.
  • Owner Occupant Buyers will follow Investors to take advantage of the quality on the market in Spring 2023.
