    Moving to Brooklyn is no longer the go-to cheaper housing option for New Yorkers. According to a report from StreetEasy, the price gap between the two boroughs is growing smaller, and some Brooklyn neighborhoods are already topping Manhattan sales levels.

    StreetEasy, looking at median sale and rent prices in all of Brooklyn’s 49 neighborhoods to Manhattan’s median prices over the last five years, found that 28 of the borough’s 49 neighborhoods outpaced Manhattan’s five-year growth in sales price. [more]

    WEEKENDEDITION With technology firms eating up space in older loft-like buildings at a rapid rate, rents in formerly affordable office spaces have been going up, making it difficult for nonprofits and arts organizations to find affordable deals.

    In the first quarter of 2014, Manhattan commercial rents rose 7 percent from the corresponding period five years ago, according to Cushman & Wakefield. Meanwhile, rents in Midtown South rose up 29 percent within the same period. [more]

    MNS rental report September 2013

    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.

    Despite significant job growth in New York City over the last year, rents have declined in the last few months. A new study claims that the relatively stagnant rents are the result of new tenants’ professions: many have jobs as artists, designers or workers in the city’s growing technology sector, rather than in the high-paying field of finance that has traditionally driven the rental market, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    The Manhattan rental market continues to display a “strange dichotomy,” as Douglas Elliman’s director of rentals Mark Menendez put it, with rents unseasonably strong at the high end, and both renters and landlords believing they can do better in other market segments. In December, the median rent for a Manhattan apartment rose 0.8 percent year-over-year, to $3,150 from $3,125 per month, according to Douglas Elliman’s December rental report, released today. [more]

    The high demand for rentals following the recession has driven New York City rents steadily upward over the last several years, but there are now signs that the trend could be slowing down, according to the New York Times. Rents in Manhattan dropped to an average price of $3,368 in November, $76 less than in October. Rental prices have now dropped for three consecutive months, albeit the rental market is always softer in winter months, according to Citi Habitats data cited by the Times. And year-over-year, median rents are only 1.5 percent higher, compared to the 10 percent increase in rents posted two years ago and the 15 percent of three years ago. Inventory has also grown, with 13,618 Manhattan apartments for rent in November, a 21 percent increase over November 2011, according to Streeteasy data cited by the Times. … [more]

  • Average rents by neighborhood, per Citi Habitats

    Sky-high rents in Manhattan and Brooklyn are meeting continued resistance, as the pace of median rent increases slows and an increasing number of renters are choosing to move instead of renewing their leases, reports on November’s rental market show.

    In Manhattan, rents, which reached a median of $3,195 in the borough last month, were propelling renters to the sales market, said Jonathan Miller, president of the real estate appraisal and consulting firm Miller Samuel and author of Douglas Elliman’s November rental report. [more]

  • Office market chugs along

    December 04, 2012 04:30PM

    From the December issue: In a weird twist, Hurricane Sandy made no measurable impact on November’s office leasing numbers. That’s despite the storm rendering nearly 20 million square feet of office space unusable as of late last month.

    Just after the storm hit, brokers worked feverishly to find alternate spaces for their clients, unsure how long they would be out of their offices. But instead of signing new leases, many large companies moved to their firm’s own satellite offices, used spaces borrowed from friendly business associates or clients — or had employees work remotely.

    Record-low mortgage rates conspired with high rental prices to push additional tenants out of the market in October, as more and more renters looked to purchase homes, real estate executives told The Real Deal.

    Overall vacancy in Manhattan was up to 1.39 percent – the highest it has been since February 2010, according to the October rental market report released today by residential brokerage Citi Habitats. Meanwhile, activity was relatively stagnant, with new rental activity increasing a mere 1.2 percent year-over-year, according to figures from brokerage Prudential Douglas Elliman’s report for the same period.

    In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, several of the city’s largest residential landlords have announced that they are providing comprehensive rent abatements to tenants who lost power or water during the storm.

    Both tenants of luxury and more affordable housing may see some relief. Rose Associates, owner of high-end rental properties such as Le Rivage and the Chelsea Landmark, said it will issue abatements for residents of Rose-owned buildings which were under evacuation orders, as well as to those who lost power or water as a result of the storm. Meanwhile, CW Capital, the owner of the East Village’s Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, will do the same. At 2 Gold street, the Financial District building recently deemed uninhabitable, landlord TF Cornerstone has waived November rents. [more]
