Indeed, sales increased every quarter last year , with fourth quarter sales the highest in 7 years, according to figures from the Beaudoin Realty Group. A total of 15 homes and 153 apartments sold, more than double the 77 sales for the same quarter in 2012.

Six-room units at Hawthorne Court, for instance, passed the $700,000 price mark for the first time ever, according to Brownstoner. Currently the most expensive co-op on the market in Jackson Heights is a 1,700-square-foot three-bedroom apartment at 3730 83rd Street for $695,000.
