Manhattan Real Estate Agents
by A HousingLeaders.com User
Date Posted: 1/18/2009
I am looking for a recommendation for a Manhattan real estate agent who can work with me on nights or weekends and who has very good local knowledge. I think the market has hit bottom and I am looking to take advantage of where things stand in Manhattan.


Rents Rising

So much for downtown rental bargains. A new report from Citi Habitats says that, for the first time since 2001, rents jumped on Manhattan apartments of all sizes last year. Studios climbed from $1,625/month to $1,676; 1BRs from $2,308 to $2,310, and 2BRs from $3,231 to $3,393. Reports the Post, 'While rents in Midtown, Murray Hill, and the Upper West and East sides stayed relatively stable, rents in Chelsea, the West Village and SoHo/TriBeCa shot up.' The average monthly rental price for a studio in Soho/Tribeca: a sassy $2,214.


Apartments at Auction

A Post Real Estate article about buying Manhattan apartments at auction shows one downside: After Caponi won, an underbidder turned to her and said, 'You bought that apartment where the murder happened.'

I reccomend the Corcoran Group and their web site http://www.corcoran.com for Manhattan real estate info.


Chelsea Apartments

Chelsea apartments are a mixed bag of residential townhouses, brownstones, apartment buildings and warehouses turned into lofts, and you can get a little more space for your money here. There's still ample new construction, but if a Chelsea apartment is on your wish list, you might want to shop around now before demand outweighs availability.

Soho Living

I have live in Soho for about 6 months now and I don't think I will ever move anywhere else in the city. The upside is all of the great restaurants, museums and art galleies very nearby. Also it's easy to get to wall street (where I work). Downside is that it is very expensive, and getting even more expensive. If you can afford it, I reccomend Soho...


Apartment Broker?

I am moving to NY from Florida and have noticed that you have to go through a broker to rent many apartments? Can someone please explain how this works, or tell me any good brokers? Thanks!


Rental Broker

Yes, it's true that you pretty much need to go through a broker to rent an apartment. I just moved out from CA a few months ago and found this strange as well. I read somewhere that it's literally easier to buy a house anywhere in the world than it is to rent an apartment in NYC. Regardles I went through the Corcoran group and they were pretty solid. Good luck.
