    The number of price chops on apartment listings in Manhattan and Brooklyn has climbed steadily over the past year. In the former, 63 percent of neighborhood offerings underwent reductions, while 53 percent took a tumble in the latter.

    Of all the neighborhoods in those boroughs, Roosevelt Island saw the biggest jump in price drops, as the median recorded sale price in July fell 65 percent to $840,000 from $1.48 million. Still, the price chops do not necessarily show that prices have decreased overall in the past year. [more]

    When looking for an apartment in New York, potential buyers and renters rely on a bevy of different listings sites to glean information such as a property’s price per square foot.

    But searches on StreetEasy, Zillow and Trulia may yield three different sets of numbers. [more]

    Are “ghost” listings on the rise?

    Home seekers in New York City are growing wary of “ghost” listings used to lure in buyers.

    In the past, agents have been known to use old or fabricated listings on brokerage websites as a ruse to get buyers on the phone — brokers would then say the home had sold and immediately pitch another property, usually less appealing. But the incidence is reportedly on the rise, reportedly because of a shortage of properties to market or increased direct communication between buyers and brokers via websites. [more]

    Zillow, the real estate website, plans to make a StreetEasy application available to Android and iPad users in a bid to attract more mobile users to the property-listing site.

    The company, which is based in Seattle, is also planning to relaunch its application for the iPhone. The app for the Apple device currently accounts for about a third of the website’s total traffic, according to Zillow Chief Executive Officer Spencer Rascoff. [more]

    From the March issue: Sebastian Delmont, a co-founder and the top programmer at StreetEasy, last month became the last of a group of seven senior executives to be replaced or leave the website since it was acquired last year by the publicly traded Zillow.

    Delmont, whose title was chief technology officer, departed around the same time the company launched its second redesign since Zillow paid $50 million for the then 34-person company in August. [more]

    Gary Barnett’s One57

    Sponsor units at Extell Development’s trophy residential tower One57 have finally been listed on StreetEasy. Four units were listed for sale by the developer on Tuesday, asking between $18.85 million and $32.75 million, the listings website shows.

    The move by Extell to list the units publicly represents a turnaround in the marketing of the building. Since One57 launched sales in 2011, the developer has famously eschewed listing units on broker databases, such as the Real Estate Board of New York’s Residential Listing Service (RLS), On-Line Residential or sites like StreetEasy.

    year_in_reviewNew York City real estate can sometimes feel like a blood sport, with a host of rivals vying to get the upper hand. Luckily, here at The Real Deal, we have a ringside seat. And in 2013, the industry did not disappoint. Office towers traded for more than $1 billion, retail rents cracked $3,000 per square foot, and $100 million became the new $50 million in residential listings. The Midtown East rezoning came and went, as did more than one commercial brokerage CEO. And let’s not forget that little matter of the mayoral election. Read on for the editorial staff’s picks of the biggest stories of the year. [more]
