Elegran Insights: Weekly Manhattan & Brooklyn Market
Week of 06/20/22
With the confluence of factors creating headwinds in the market, NYC is not immune from the effects. Rising interest rates, a bear market for equities, a crypto winter and continued rising inflation, all of which have all led to a slowdown in the real estate market. In Manhattan, sellers are coming to market in greater numbers than this time last year, in part to take advantage of a still-liquid, albeit slowing, market.
This increase in supply has created more choice for buyers and reduced competition amongst buyers. In the face of market turbulence some end-user buyers are reindexing their goals and plans, while investor-buyers are looking at NYC real estate with renewed vigor as current market conditions can make NYC a favorable investment option today.
Programming Note: As seasonality is returning to the market, starting next week the year-over-year comparisons will now be 2022 vs. 2019. Comparing to 2019 will provide a more practical perspective on how today’s market is performing.
