NEW YORK CITY / Q1 2023 / Market Report
The recent trend of declining transaction volume continued in Q1 of 2023. In fact, investment sales in New York City declined by 31% from the previous quarter and are on track for their worst result since the Global Financial Crisis. As the rate increase cycle marches on, capital continues to get more expensive.
NEW YORK CITY / Q4 2022 / Market Report
Not surprisingly, Q4 2022 was a continuation of the trend we saw emerging in Q3 2022. Transaction volume came in at a subdued $5.35 billion across all boroughs in NYC, which was slightly above last quarter’s $5.04 billion.
NEW YORK CITY / Q3 2022 / Market Report
After a bumper Q2 2022 where New York City recorded over $8.5 billion in investment sales transactions, Q3 2022 was always likely to be less dynamic, and so it proved. The Federal Reserve, facing inflation pressures not seen in several decades, was forced to continue its ultra-hawkish bent and so raised its reference rate by 150 basis points during...
NEW YORK CITY / Q2 2022 / Market Report
The second quarter has been one of dichotomies. On the one hand, NYC experienced a bumper period for investment sales volume, clocking at $8.5B for the quarter ending June 30. This was driven by a flurry of activity as investors raced to beat the looming expiration of the 421a tax abatement program and also the expectation of rising inflation.
NEW YORK CITY / Q1 2022 / Market Report
Recovery - That is the key word for NYC investment sales in 2022. After the depths of the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, when transactions were severely depressed in number and dollar volume, the market this year is showing strong signs of getting back on track.
