Manhattan Real Estate Prices: No Collapse, Forecasts New Report

Share Article

Manhattan's real estate market shows an increasingly uncertain picture. Supply is up, buyers are reluctant to commit and prices in some areas and segments are weak. Using a range of economic data, including coop and condo prices, income and borrowing costs, Business360 assesses which way the market will move. This is Business360's fifth annual report; in all previous years its forecasts compare favorably with actual price movements.

Business360 issued its 2006 Manhattan real estate report, which uses square foot condo and coop prices, to assess the extent to which prices in one of the nation’s real estate "hot spots" are overvalued. The analysis compares market fundamentals today with those at different times in the last 25 years, including the last peak of 1987.

Using real estate data from Miller Samuel, New York’s leading authority on its real estate values, along with economic data on personal income and interest rates, Business360 examines the market on a range of core metrics including various affordability measures.

In the face of growing uncertainty and confusion in the market, Business360’s report provides historical context for understanding longer term changes and trends that are underway.

This is the company’s fifth annual report on this topic. Its forecasts from the previous four years are all directionally correct and compare favorably to actual price movements.

The 2006 report discusses likely price movements and how current uncertainties will affect the Manhattan market.

The report is for release Thursday, October 05, 2006
