Elegran Insights: Weekly Manhattan & Brooklyn Market

Week of 12/13/21

This week, total supply in Manhattan and Brooklyn continued to decrease and pending sales rose in both boroughs. The Market Pulse increased, as inventory is declining while demand is increasing. Manhattan’s market pulse is 0.77 and Brooklyn’s is 1.15, indicating strong buyer activity and increasing leverage for sellers. Owners considering listing this spring could be better off listing now to take advantage of buyers clamoring for new inventory and reduced competition from other sellers. On the rental side, overall rental supply in Manhattan decreased to fewer than 3,000 available for rent, the lowest inventory level since the pandemic. The reduction in rental inventory is contributing to rising rental rates, reduced landlord concession and higher renewal rates for tenants.

Manhattan Supply decreased 2% this week to 5,664 units for sale, as supply continues to trend downwards through the holiday season. This week, 295 new listings came to market, a 20% increase compared to last week and a 46% increase from last year.

Brooklyn Supply decreased 4% to 2,634 units for sale. This week 163 new listings came to market, an increase of 28% from last week and 16% less than the same week last year.
