Sales inventory in new development projects across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens was down year-over-year in October, Crain’s reported, citing a Streeteasy.com report. But the number of these listings in Manhattan is on the upswing — rising more than 10 percent in the pat six months — even as they continue to fall in Queens and Brooklyn.
The inventory declines have increased prices, however. Broken down by borough, Brooklyn saw a 52.7 percent year-over-year fall in inventory to 276 from 583 a year earlier. In Queens the number declined 52.6 percent year-over-year to 108 from 228. [more]
