CityRealty released its Monthly Market Report earlier this week, indicating New York City apartment prices dropped slightly in early 2016 while number of sales increased. Both condo and co-op sales in Manhattan reached $2.1 million, a slight dip from $2.2 million in December. However, the number of sales grew from 862 in December to 1,020 in January.
- Per usual, average sales prices on co-ops were lower than condos, the report says.
- Downtown took the highest portion of condo sales in Manhattan, with 42 percent market share and $429 million in sales.
- The 30-day price per square foot average dropped in all neighborhoods except for SoHo and West Village, where 8.5 percent and 4.5 percent increases occurred, respectively.
- The highest average price per square foot in Manhattan was in Downtown, again, where apartments cost $2,172 per square foot in January.
