    In the four-and-a-half years since the Manhattan condo/co-op market bottomed out, average prices have grown at about half the rate they did during the same time span leading up to the end of 2009. This time around, though, that growth is being pushed primarily by expensive luxury products, while the bottom 90 percent of the market churns out a slow recovery. [more]

    WEEKENDEDITION All too often consumers rely on monthly reports to get a sense of the U.S. housing market, when in fact the very nature of the real estate market hobbles those reports, according to real estate appraiser Jonathan Miller.

    “Buying or selling a house is a slow, lumbering, inefficient process that takes months to complete. There is a significant lag time from a meeting of the minds between a buyer and a seller to when the sale gets reported to the public. Yet we hang on each report and the bold headlines they inspire without proper context or understanding,” Miller writes in Bloomberg News. [more]

    We’ve said it before, but now we can say it definitively: 2013 was a banner year for real estate, particularly for high-end residential sales. In fact, so many real estate records were smashed in the fourth quarter, according to reports released today by the city’s biggest residential brokerages, that data wonk Jonathan Miller said it was hard to count them all.

    Sales of homes on Long Island hit 6,977 in the third quarter — the highest level seen since 2006 and a 32 percent year-over-year increase, according to a new market report from Douglas Elliman. Median prices on Long Island – as well as in New Jersey and Westchester County – also rose, while the inventory shrunk, suggesting that the region is on the upswing.

    Indeed, the median price on Long Island rose to $380,000, a year-over-year increase of 4 percent and the highest mark since the third quarter of 2008. [more]

    How much can your buyer afford? Ask the bank. Taking buyers to view dream homes is a total waste of time until they know the level of mortgage financing they can secure with a preapproval, said Jonathan Miller, president and CEO of appraisal firm Miller Samuel. See the video after the jump.

    Brokers have been asking buyers to take price-per-square-foot numbers with a grain of salt, as listings have no uniform standard for measuring square footage and are often misleading.

    Some listings, for example, may include closets, hallways and even elevator shafts as part of the square footage, while others go with simply the actual amount of usable space inside an apartment. Still, “usable” can be defined in myriad ways. [more]

    The borough of Kings may still be the lady-in-waiting when it comes to real estate prices, but the gap between Brooklyn and Manhattan continues to shrink rapidly. Brooklyn saw an 11.6 percent jump in the median home sale price in the third quarter of 2013, to $564,720 from $506,000 in the same period last year, according to the latest Douglas Elliman market report, released today.

    Rents in Manhattan may have finally hit a plateau in September, as a spring spike in mortgage rates shunted some renters into the sales market and the vacancy rate edged up to the second-highest level in three years, according to a monthly Douglas Elliman rental market report released today.

    The median rent in the borough slipped 3.1 percent year-over-year to $3,095 per month, the first such decline since June 2011, while the average rental price per square foot dropped 2.6 percent year-over-year to $51.25. The number of new rental listings jumped 35.9 percent year-over-year, demonstrating that tenants continue to resist rising rents when their leases are up, choosing to move instead, and leaving apartments that hit the market, according to Miller Samuel CEO Jonathan Miller, who authored the report.

    The intensity of the residential real estate market this summer was enough to make its players sweat. As sales continued to take off in the third quarter, the inventory trough hit a new low, reports released today by Manhattan residential brokerages show. Listing inventory fell to its lowest level since appraisal firm Miller Samuel began tracking it in 2000. [more]
