Homebuyers who purchase real estate through LLCs tend to go for pricier homes. In 2017, Manhattan home sales that involved LLCs had a median sales price of $2.7 million, nearly three times the $990,000 median price for purchases without LLCs. The number of home sales under LLCs have sharply risen since 2004, with the segment now accounting for 14 percent of all deals and 25 percent of the value of residential purchases.
