Real Estate: Rental prices are skyrocketing in New York. Here’s why

After five consecutive months of rising prices, the average monthly rent stood at $5,058 in Manhattan last June. In the space of a year, real estate rentals in New York have seen prices soar by almost 30%. To understand this phenomenon, Rachel Brunet from LePetitJournal went to meet Yann Rousseau, Managing Partner at BARNES New York.

The rise of Manhattan real estate

Real estate prices were near record highs in 2021, and it looks like that upward trajectory will continue. If you want to buy an apartment in Manhattan, now is the time. There is pent-up demand and only about five months of housing supply. The median sale price for a condo was $1.7 million in July 2022, up 4.4% higher than the same period in 2021.

If you’re looking for something a little less expensive, think about buying a co-op in Manhattan. Co-ops tend to be less costly and typically offer more space than condos, but the purchase process is a little more complicated. So take a look at both options and decide which is right for you and your situation, and contact BARNES New York when you feel ready to buy an apartment in Manhattan.

Where to find the best luxury real estate in New York?

New York City consists of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island, and each has its own style and way of life. Sometimes, passing between the borders of each borough can feel like traveling to an entirely different state.

Each borough comes with its own historical significance, urban centers, and array of diversity. And New York remains one of the most popular places to live in America.

With popularity comes luxury living, a category where New York City is in no way lacking. With neighborhoods such as Noho, Hudson Yards, Tribeca, and Central Park, the options are limitless in luxury real estate in New York.

What about Hudson Yards?

Hudson Yards is unlike any other neighborhood in New York City. It is well known for its first time visiting New York experiences and its incredible and artistic architecture. It’s very close to Central Park and borders the Hudson River. Its abundance of luxury townhouses and luxury homes, and skyrise properties offer stunning views of some of New York’s most iconic buildings, the river, and Central Park. Some properties offer views of all three. In any case, you will have an incredible view of Manhattan to take in and enjoy.

Hudson Yards was top on the list in terms of median sales price for their luxury spaces, the Manhattan neighborhood coming in at $8.5 million.*

What about NoLIta?

NoLIta stands for North of Little Italy, and is a intimate neighborhood with a distinctly, unique charming vibe. You will find numerous boutiques and vintage shops, bakeries and pop-up art galleries throughout the area. Apartments can be hard to find, because the neighborhood is very small, and consists mostly of pre-war walk-ups, although there are a few newer doorman buildings and new developments.

NoLIta was second only to Hudson Yards in terms of median sales price for their luxury spaces, the Manhattan neighborhood coming in at just a shade under $7.5 million as of May 2022.*

What about Central Park?

Central Park is home to some of New York City’s most iconic views, so it only makes sense you will find a lot of luxury real estate around it. And the hundreds of highrises and historically-significant and renovated buildings that line the famous park, especially on its southern border, are the most sought-after properties in the city.

The neighborhood of Central Park South, located on the southern stretch of Central Park, is tiny. It is only three blocks long by two blocks deep, but it packs a lot into that small space. It is home to many of New York City’s picturesque views.

Luxury properties sharing a border with Central Park will be the most expensive in the neighborhood, but, on average, the sale price for properties here was just a shade over $6,645,500.*

What is NoHo’s Style?

NoHo, or north of Houston Street, is a neighborhood within Manhattan and has an incredible view of Manhattan. The area has some of the city’s best critically-acclaimed restaurants and entertainment as well as designer boutiques. It’s been described as laid-back, but with something always going on—you will never be bored.

Housing-wise, NoHo’s well-known luxury buildings are some of the most highly-sought after in the city, and they are chock-full of architectural history or their own unique style.

NoHo is third on the list in median sales price at just over $5,150,000.*

Where is TriBeCa?

TriBeCa is located on the southern tip of Manhattan and is known for its industrial look. This portion of Manhattan has been restored and renovated while maintaining its original, more turn-of-the-century beauty. Historical lovers would be at home here. It has riverside views, notable restaurants, and plenty of sleek bars to fit a luxury lifestyle.

TriBeCa is also well known for its annual film festival, the TriBeCa Film Festival. Properties here, on average, go for a little above $3.2 million.*

Are there any luxury options outside of Manhattan?

Of course there are! The luxury apartments market in NYC is prevalent in more than just Manhattan. Of course, the options are a little bit more limited outside of Manhattan, and the surrounding areas don’t necessarily offer the same prevalence of luxury amenities, like fine dining or theaters, but they are there.

The borough of Brooklyn would be Manhattan’s biggest rival in terms of luxury living, especially DUMBO, with a median sale price of $2 million.

What neighborhood would you recommend?

Any of the neighborhoods mentioned above would be a good starting point when looking for luxury housing. But it’s nearly impossible to beat the views of New York City’s skyline that are available only in Manhattan—not to mention Central Park. With Central Park within commuting distance from anywhere in Manhattan, the area is really unrivaled.

What is the housing price in Queens?

Do you want to know more about the housing price in Queens? When deciding where to live, cost is a major factor to consider. Purchasing a home is a massive investment, so getting an idea of the prices for a specific area is important. New York has a reputation for small apartments with high rents, but this isn’t the case everywhere. There are many houses, decently sized apartments, condos, and more for sale in Queens.

Queens traces its roots back to the 1600’s, when it was founded as one of the original counties comprising the Province of New York. From these humble beginnings, it has since exploded in growth and population. Queens is currently the second-most populated county in New York state, also making it the second-largest borough in all of New York City.

What is the state of the Queens real estate market?

In 2020, the Queens real estate market slowed. However, it never fully stopped, which has allowed a quick recovery and rapid growth. In quarter 1 of 2021, the median sale price was half of what it had been a year prior. The market then boomed, with the second quarter of 2021 median sale price being more than twice what it had been the previous year. The median fell by roughly $200,000 for the remaining two quarters, but prices were still much higher than they had been in 2020.

In 2020, there were a total of 9,857 real estate transactions across the entire year. The most transactions occurred in quarter 4, with 3,179, and the fewest number of transactions, 1,610, happened in Quarter 4. In contrast, 2021 saw 14,922 real estate transactions. Quarter 1 saw the fewest, with 3,282, and Quarter 3 saw the most, with 4,350. Even when the Queens real estate market was at its lowest, it managed to outshine 2020’s market.*

As of May 2022, the median sale price in Queens was $545,000, with a price of $615 per sq. ft., and 1,064 transactions, while the second quarter of 2022 saw 4,178 sales, a 18.8% year over year.

The pandemic caused many people to be stuck in their homes for long periods of time. This gave people a new perspective on their spaces and drove demand away from crowded places like Manhattan and toward more open locations like Queens. Small apartments are no longer preferable since being quarantined inside a small space can become uncomfortable quickly. As a result, demand for luxury houses for sale in Queens increased, which drove prices up in tandem. The median house sale price in Queens in May was $798,000, up 6% year-over-year, while coop and condo prices were down 3%, showing a need for more space and less cramped, confined apartments.

Queens is the fourth most expensive borough in New York City. This, alongside its beautiful neighborhoods and cultural diversity, caused the demand for housing in Queens to grow even before the pandemic, and 2021 only saw the demand soar to new heights. As a result, housing prices are up, and rents are climbing.

Where is the best place to look for real estate in Queens?

When looking to purchase real estate, there are plenty of diverse neighborhoods to choose from. If you’re looking at apartments for sale in Queens, consider looking in Astoria. With its heavy Greek influence, a Little Egypt, and an abundance of family-owned businesses, Astoria proves to be an enticing choice. This is compounded further by the combination of affordable and high-end housing and a growing reputation for fine dining. House prices here range from $250,000 to well over $2 million. There’s somewhere for you here, no matter your budget.

When looking for condos or co-ops, Long Island City and Jackson Heights spring to mind. Jackson Heights has quiet and historic residential areas, such as the Historic District, and busier commercial areas that provide the neighborhood with a bustling nightlife. It can be busy, but there is a variety of different cultural restaurants from places like Tibet and India that make the hustle worth it. Home prices here range from $300,00 to under $1,500,000. Long Island City can be quiet during the day, but also has a vibrant nightlife with concerts, weekend markets, and cocktail bars. With a past of industrialism and newer modern additions, the city’s luxury high-rises each have their own unique flair. The house prices here tend to be closer to $1 million, with most being higher.

If luxury is the goal, Jamaica Estates, a subsection of the larger neighborhood of Jamaica, and Forest Hills Gardens are the best choices. Jamaica Estates is a beautiful neighborhood with a diverse mix of cultures. The stunning sights of the colorful city, elaborate architecture, and stunning tree-lined streets mean that homes here are priced between $1,000,000 and $3,000,000. Forest Hills Gardens is also one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Queens. The quiet residential districts surrounded by parks and gardens have easy access to The West Side Tennis Club, resulting in house prices that can be quite extravagant. While you can find homes of all prices, many are near or over $1,000,000, with some being nearly $4,000,000.

What to consider when looking in Queens?

When looking at real estate in Queens, knowing what you’re looking for will help dictate the prices you should expect. When looking at the neighborhoods, homes typically range between over $200,000 and $4,000,000. This large range shows how diverse Queens is.

With more affordable homes found in Jackson Heights and Astoria and much more expensive offerings in Jamaica Estates, Long Island City and Forest Hills Gardens, there’s someplace in Queens for your budget. However, there are many other neighborhoods to consider. Each one provides different cultures, views, amenities, and more.

The western portions of Queens have beaches and beachfront properties. Places like Astoria and Flushing are rich in museums and culture. Other neighborhoods are filled with trees. Every one of them has a unique mix of cultures. Whether you’re looking for a quiet, expensive property or an apartment in a busy city, Queens has something to pique your interest. If you’re looking for a space to call your own, BARNES New York can help guide you.

How to buy a brand new apartment in Brooklyn?

Buying a brand new apartment in Brooklyn is an amazing and rewarding experience to be had by buyers of all backgrounds and lifestyles. Brooklyn is a city filled with life, color, and culture that shows in nearly every neighborhood and part of the city.

While searching for an apartment to buy and going through the process can be time-consuming, it can be made easy by understanding your budget, each neighborhood, and the overall steps to buying a brand new apartment in Brooklyn. When looking for a space in Brooklyn to call your own, BARNES New York is here to help guide you.

What is your budget?

How much are you willing to spend on your apartment? In Brooklyn, the median sale price of an apartment market-wide, including resale and new developments, is around $980,000 as of July 2022*. When considering brand new apartments in new developments in Brooklyn, the median sale price increases to $1,200,000 in July 2022*. Like other New York neighborhoods, co-op apartments are often cheaper than condominiums, but it’s fairly rare to find a brand new co-op building. In general, homes in a new development in Brooklyn will cost more than existing resale. Important tip: it is best to save about 20% of the cost of the apartment before buying, if possible. This gives you plenty of wiggle room when looking for a brand new apartment to buy and greatly strengthens your offer.

Having a reasonable budget of $1,000,000 or more will ensure you find new apartments and condos for sale in Brooklyn that will meet your needs. But, of course, prices also go up with more accommodations, features, and luxuries available. Depending on what you’re looking for, set yourself a limit to finding hidden gems in your home and avoid overspending. It’s best to talk to your banker or mortgage broker to request a pre-approval letter to help you pinpoint your budget.

What about location?

The price of the apartment you buy in Brooklyn can vary greatly depending on the neighborhood it is located in. While areas such as Williamsburg and Dumbo tend to be more expensive, Greenpoint and Carroll Gardens can be much cheaper options.

Williamsburg

Williamsburg is one of the trendiest area in Brooklyn, filled with bars, restaurants, and retail stores, feeling much like a giant city within an even bigger city. An apartment in Williamsburg is ideal for Manhattan Bridge views, easy access to luxury shops, and a comfortable residential feel. Although there are also plenty of work opportunities in Williamsburg, it is great for many residents to settle in as well. There’s always an new apartment to buy in Williamsburg thanks to several solid new development programs.

Dumbo

Dumbo is priced similarly to Williamsburg, emerging as a hotspot in recent years as former industrial spaces are converted to cozy residential homes. However, the price is worth it, as it is filled with lovely streets lined with vintage shops and unique pieces, and it’s a popular spot for older groups. Several new development programs offer beautiful housing options in the neighborhood. Whether you are buying a new condo or co-op in Brooklyn, Dumbo’s vision is sure to make it a stunning home.

Greenpoint

Greenpoint is a great area to settle in as there’s less hustle and bustle than Williamsburg, which is just south of it. The area has many beautiful brownstone apartments and is home to a large Polish community. The food at Greenpoint is excellent and varied, so it’s great for people of almost every culture, especially Europeans. New buildings in the area offer brand new condos with good amenities and easy access to the subway.

Carroll Gardens

Carroll Gardens offers a small selection of brand new apartments, but provides a small-town feel from within Brooklyn’s big city, and even though it is smaller than many other neighborhoods in Brooklyn, the close-knit community can make any newcomers feel welcomed. An apartment in Carroll Gardens is not only beautiful, but it is also great for those who are looking for a quiet house in a smaller neighborhood.

What is the buying process like?

As a potential buyer who wants to buy a brand new apartment in Brooklyn, you should work with an experienced buyer’s agent. By working with a buyer’s agent, you can save money by helping you find great deals on apartments, working with your best interests in mind, and help you navigate the different neighborhoods in the city, especially with agents specialized in new constructions in Brooklyn and its different areas.

In addition, it is important to prepare documents for your offer and to find a real estate attorney. Once the offer is accepted, your attorney will review the offering plan before you enter a purchase contract.

Because it can be difficult to get a mortgage on a new development, you might want to consider working with the “preferred lender” for the building, who is usually familiar with the construction and able to give loans more easily. Start building requests as soon as possible to stay on top of additional messages and information while staying organized with important information.

How do I secure the apartment I want?

Once the offer is accepted for your Brooklyn apartment, you can begin the process of closing on your new home. After signing off, your brand new apartment in Brooklyn, New York, is now completely yours!

The process usually takes about up to 2 months for condos and up to 3 months for co-ops for resale, but for brand new homes and buying off the floor plan, the timeline can greatly vary, especially when some apartments are being sold before the construction even begins! If possible, provide documents such as IDs, tax returns, and other important records to be as thorough as possible. Buying an new apartment in Brooklyn can be a long but highly rewarding process, and having these resources available will help streamline it. Owning a home in a beautiful city filled with color, friendliness, and diversity is a huge step forward in life. Contact BARNES New York to start looking for your brand new apartment in Brooklyn!

What is the real estate market like in the Hamptons?

Like most residential areas outside of big cities, the Hamptons have seen a tremendous influx of home buyers and residences since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. People want to live outside the city more than ever while still remaining somewhat close, and the housing market reflects that.

Like most of the world, the Hamptons has a competitive housing market where buyers enter bidding wars against other buyers to land the house. Because of that, areas of the Hamptons that have been harder to sell in have suddenly become a buyer’s destination. And with some revitalizations of shopping districts and nearby downtowns, those areas have become even more desirable.

About How Many Residences Are on the Market Today?

At the time of writing, over a thousand homes were for sale or rent in the Hamptons, with listing prices ranging from approximately $400,000 on the more inland properties up to $78,000,000 for the oceanfront properties. When considered over the entire year, rental prices start at around $14,000 annually and go up from there.

The listings, as described above, are located throughout the Hamptons, from the westernmost stretch (Westhampton, Westhampton Beach, and Eastport) to the eastern tip (East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk).

Where is the best place to live in the Hamptons?

Of course, this leans a little on personal preference: do you like oceanfront properties more than wooded inland ones? Or do you prefer properties closer to restaurants, shops, and museums? But, with that being said, and with so many real estate options in the Hamptons, there is something that will fit within your ideals.

What is the upside to Westhampton?

Of the Hamptons, Westhampton is the closest neighborhood to New York City. By car, it is just under 1 hour and 30 minutes to Midtown Manhattan, making it the ideal location for those who would like to commute to the city frequently. Because of this, Westhampton has seen some upswing in the amount of purchases lately.

Couple that with a revitalized downtown, its proximity to the water, and it’s clear that Westhampton will continue its upward trajectory.

What is the upside to East Hampton?

Montauk

Farther away from New York City is East Hampton, a quieter area in the Hamptons. For reference, by car, it is just under a 2-hour drive from Manhattan (near Central Park). It has a thriving downtown with plenty of charm and accommodations and is perfect for those wanting to experience New York without all of the crowds and business of the big city. It also has incredible views, plenty of parks with hiking trails, and long, scenic beaches.

Of course, with such features and accommodations, East Hampton real estate has seen an uptick in buyers lately and can be competitive.

How competitive is real estate in the Hamptons?

According to the Hamptons Real Estate Report by Hedges, the Hamptons real estate market has declined in terms of the number of sold listings. However, the amount of each sale had increased over the previous year, meaning that even though fewer properties were sold, the amount they sold for was higher.

The reason for the increase in sale prices can be pinpointed to two reasons. The first reason being that it costs construction companies more money to build properties due to the uptick in labor and material costs throughout the world.

The other reason also relates to construction. Again, because of the cost to build (and the material shortage), companies just can’t build new properties as frequently as they had before. And for that reason, there are fewer properties for potential buyers. That means for those that are on the market, the lack of properties make it ultra-competitive, and potential buyers often have to enter bidding wars against other buyers.

Any recommendations for property buying in the Hamptons?

There are many property and real estate opportunities in the Hamptons despite the decline in the number of sold listings—almost every village, town, and hamlet within the Hamptons has property for sale. It then becomes a matter of where you want to live; or where you can afford to live. For those looking to spend upwards of 10 million dollars, the oceanside properties of East Hampton, Amagansett, or Montauk would be of interest.

Those hoping to spend less than 10 million dollars but still desire an oceanside property should look to Westhampton, Westhampton Beach, Eastport, or the areas around those villages. And for those not wanting to spend a million dollars, looking at the villages and hamlets more inland would lead to desirable options.

What does the future of real estate in the Hamptons look like?

Because of the pandemic, the Hamptons has seen an influx of buyers gobbling up their real estate supply at record rates. Rates which, largely due to material shortages, construction companies and contractors haven’t been able to keep up with. As a result, not only had the Hamptons seen a decrease in the number of sales, but it had also experienced a decrease in supply.

However, with many companies leaning more on remote workers than ever before, several agencies and real estate heads are predicting a more stable and ‘normal’ market for the Hamptons in the future. To check out all the finest luxury listings available, alongside expert advice and guidance, be sure to contact BARNES New York.
