Where are the most desirable apartments?
Judging based on price discounts, time on the market and ratio of closed sales to available listings, Sofia Song, vice president of Streeteasy, compiled a list of the 10 most populous Manhattan precincts and “most sellable” type of apartment likely to find buyers. Topping off the list was the Upper East Side, where post-war two-bedroom co-ops are most popular, followed closely by pre-war two bedrooms, with a median closing pricing of $995,000, according to New York Magazine. Post-war condominium studios with a median closing price of $549,885 was number two on the list, with pre-war two-bedroom co-ops in Midtown West ranking next, with a median closing price of $675,000. Rounding out the top five were pre-war two-bedroom co-ops in Chelsea, followed by pre-war one-bedroom condos in Greenwich Village. [NY Mag]
