Why Manhattan Real Estate Keeps Attracting International & Domestic Buyers Alike

International and local buyers keep falling in love with Manhattan real estate. Downtown, buyers are snapping up luxury new developments in Tribeca (56 Leonard), Chelsea (Walker Tower), West Chelsea and the West Village (150 Charles) and its expected that several new Hudson Yards projects including 520 West 28th to be designed by famed starchitect Zaha Hadid for Related will sell out quickly.

Manhattan real estate prices on average double every ten years drawing investors, however, I believe part of the magic of New York is that moment when one sees the lights of the city or a view one never had seen before. The city continues to grow and improve adding to its live-able quality and attracting buyers from all demographics and nationalities. Of course many old-timers lament the city’s change, but change is a constant in New York.

Tribeca Luxury Real Estate: Robust Growth in a Hot Market

Tribeca Luxury Real Estate: Robust Growth in a Hot Market Tribeca Luxury Lofts on Greenwich Street, New York - Photo by Tony Sargent (Copyright 2012)

In New York luxury real estate, strong demand in downtown Manhattan for Tribeca’s 3 and 4-bedroom luxury lofts and condos resulted in prime properties going to contract in under 45 days. From mid-May to July, 3-bedroom inventory dropped 47% to only 29 units resulting in bidding wars and record prices for some properties.

Why is Tribeca so hot now? More families are choosing to stay in Manhattan and are looking for large spaces which are found in the luxury 3-4 bedroom lofts of Tribeca.  Add PS 234 (a great public school) and the Hudson River Park and it’s ever increasing amenities and luxury lifestyle.

If you had invested in a Tribeca 4-bedroom loft in 2000 it would have cost you Read more…

What is Real Estate?

What is Real Estate?

What is real estate? As I leave my office late tonight, I look at the list on my desk-wall of clients who want to buy or sell. They aren’t numbers to me. They are people: fathers, mothers, children, partners. All with a dream of owning a home or having more space. A place to create memories, to celebrate anniversaries, to laugh, to cry, to perhaps disagree and then come back together. To watch teeth fall and then the 1st sideburns grow.

This is why I do what I do. To help people make their dreams come true, as smoothly as I can. Nothing feels better than to seem them smile on closing day…and five years later. – By Tony Sargent

Downtown Manhattan 3-Bedroom Loft Market Heats Up

Downtown Manhattan 3-Bedroom Loft Market Heats Up 195 Bowery Luxury Condo Loft in Manhattan - Photo By Rich Caplan

Downtown 3-bedroom properties that have gone to contract since December 20th, 2011, have done so in approximately 45 days after coming on the market, according to a quick (and unscientific) study I did today.

It validates what I and other brokers are feeling in the Downtown 3-bedroom market right now. Buyer interest, appointments and open house visits are up. The best inventory is moving quickly and even some properties which are not considered ‘the best’ are selling if their price is reflective of condition.

Areas like Nolita, Bowery, Tribeca and Soho continue to see growing interest from buyers who need space and wish to live in vibrant neighborhoods. Thirty years ago there was a reason to leave the city – safety, school, neighbhorhood. Today Manhattan offers all of that and more. Ask anyone who’s got two or three children under seven in Manhattan. If they can figure out how to make it work numbers and space wise, they’d rather stay here. Perhaps because it provides a more dynamic lifestyle for both parents and children than the suburbs? Your call. But I see demand for 3 and 4 bedrooms remaining solid right now.

Even the larger two bedroom market is seeing a bump. A new loft I listed at 195 Bowery in Nolita/Lower East Side had twenty people at its first open house.

If you have any questions on the Manhattan market or are looking to make a move, feel free to contact me.
