There’s something in the air and it’s not just holiday spirit.
As Manhattan’s luxury market is seeing its busiest December in years when it comes to contract signings, listings with high price tags are hitting the market in numbers with three of last week’s priciest listings asking over $20 million.
All told, the third week of December saw the five most expensive homes new to the market range from $59 million to $8.5 million, according to an analysis of StreetEasy and Compass data. (Commercially zoned properties and previously submitted listings were not counted.) That’s an impressive showing considering the previous week’s priciest listing was $50 million.
Three of the listings are sponsor units, including two brand-new pads at 35 Hudson Yards while the other two properties are in Greenwich Village.
Combined, the five most expensive listings in New York City between Dec. 16 through Dec. 22 are asking $121.87 million. The previous week’s total was just under $90 million.
Here’s a look at this week’s five biggest listings.
