The value of homes in formerly redlined neighborhoods still lag behind other areas. In December 2017, the median value of a U.S. home in a redlined district stood at $276,199, 14.9 percent less than the $324,489 in non-redlined areas. The disparity was less pronounced in Manhattan. During the month, the median value of a home in a redlined area stood at $1,778,488, which is 4.4 percent less compared to the $1,860,758 for non-redlined neighborhoods. Read the report here.

Downtown Manhattan ranked first in the country in terms of concessions packages in 2017. During the period, the value of incentives such as free rent and tenant improvement allowances rose by 24 percent year-over-year to $129. The decline dragged down the area’s tenant effective rent, which is defined as total gross rent minus concessions. For the year, that metric stood at $39.47, down 7.8 percent from the previous year.
