Fox Business Asks Jonathan Miller, Are There Too Many Luxury Apartments in Manhattan?

Last month, Fox Business’ Deirdre Bolton interviewed Manhattan’s #1 go to person for clear and unfiltered real estate data, Jonathan Miller, President and CEO of Miller Samuel, Inc. a top appraisal and consulting firm. The questions on everyone’s lips today: Are developers building too many luxury homes and super-luxury condominiums in New York? Is there enough demand to meet the supply, and why have we not seen any significant new construction that serves the $3,000,000 or under market in Manhattan for years?

Jonathan does a fantastic job of answering these questions in this video. For a high net worth client considering a new development I recently completed a study of same unit re-sales in some of Manhattan’s top buildings built since 2006. Which buildings saw huge equity growth and which saw little, surprised me. I will share more on that in a future post.

In the last weeks both Jonathan Miller (on Curbed) and Urban Digs reported and provided data to support what buyers and sellers alike are finding in the Manhattan luxury condo and luxury loft market; inventory is at seven-year lows and competition among buyers for new apartments that hit the market is super high. Multiple bids are back, especially in the $2-5 Million price point, and buyers in areas like Tribeca, Greenwich Village, the West Village and on the Upper West Side are feeling the heat. While the entry level market is very competitive downtown, pricing still needs to be on-target otherwise buyers are moving onto the next best property.

Check out these graphs created by Jonathan of Miller Samuel and Noah of Urban Digs. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. These graphs take things from ‘broker-speak’ to reality.

Manhattan Market Overview Graph for 2nd Quarter 2010 from Miller Samuel
