  • Condos Continue to Lead: Last week, condos accounted for a 79% share of the luxury market. This trend highlights the continued preference for condominiums for less restrictive ownership.
  • Neighborhood Activity: Downtown Manhattan remains the most popular area, with a 50% share of the market last week.The Upper East Side and Upper West Side tied for second place both with a 25% market share.
  • New Developments: New developments captured 25% of the market share last week, pointing to strong buyer interest and the allure of new development. In January, according to Marketproof,a data firm specializing in new development, the median PPSF reached $2,842 (+2%). 31 of the 32 luxury deals this month were signed in Manhattan.
  • Market Tipping In Favor of Sellers: The dynamics suggest a market currently slightly favoring sellers, with a healthy rate of contract signings and only a slight increase in inventory.
  • Economic Indicators: With interest rate cuts anticipated to start in May, the outlook for Manhattan's luxury real estate market in 2024 is positive, bolstered by the market's current momentum.
