Our job is to help you determine what kinds of apartments and neighborhoods are suitable for you, and to guide you in regards to the property price, in order to select the best match for your real estate needs and budget.

1)   Upper West Side

There is varying architecture on the Upper West Side. Brownstones and townhouses line Broadway and doorman buildings are found along West End Avenue. Riverside Drive buildings have a beautiful Hudson River view.

The price per square foot is depending on location, apartment and building condition, size, and building amenities, etc. Check on New York Real Estate Market – General & Prices of Manhattan Upper Eastside for more info.

3)   Midtown

On the West side of Midtown, new developers have moved in and built many luxury condos and rentals. The prices in these new buildings are far more reasonable than further uptown. The area formerly known as Hell’s Kitchen is today sometimes referred to as the community of Clinton. This doesn’t mean you can find a bargain price everywhere, either. There are plenty of the properties priced in the millions, such as in the east toward the Empire State Building and in the north towards to Time Square.

A neighborhood known as Murray Hill is situated in East Midtown. It has drawn new residents to the area, as there are max living options, condos, co-ops, brownstones, towers and well-maintained apartment buildings.

A source report dated 8/31/2010 shows that the biggest difference in prices in Midtown are for condos. The average price for condo here ranges from $900 – $1,066 per square foot. The price for a co-op is about 20% lower. The price per square foot is depending on location, apartment and building condition, size, and building amenities, etc. Check on Midtown – Manhattan neighborhood overview for more info.

4)   Chelsea

Chelsea is located at between West 34th Street to West 14th Street, and stretches from Avenue of the Americas (6th Ave) to West Hudson River. It is New York’s gallery district neighborhood and the fashion-design central. East of Ninth Avenue, there were many warehouses; today it is a stunning landmark of townhouses, pre-war co-ops, and new rental buildings. The price per square foot further uptown, from West 30th street, provide more bang for your buck. 7th Avenue, also called Fashion Avenue, is where FIT College is located and also where you can see many beautiful garments being unloaded for numerous garment shops. Also, Macy’s flagship store is located at 34th Street and 7th Ave, in an area known as Herald Square, where the shoppers can get some bargains from. The Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and Penn Station are also in the area.

The price for a co-op is about 20% lower. It is also depending on location, apartment and building condition, size, and building amenities, etc.

5)   Greenwich Village

Greenwich Village always attracts many young adults. From NYU to Washington Square Park, from crowded cafes to noisy bars, you can see college students and twenty-year-olds everywhere. It is perhaps the hub of culture in Manhattan.

The average price for a condo here is $1,149 per square foot. The price for a co-op is about 20% lower. The price per square foot is depending on location, apartment and building condition, size, and building amenities, etc. Check on Greenwich Real Estate – Manhattan Neighborhood Overview for more info.

6)   Soho

Soho stretches from the south side of Houston Street to Vestry Street, and from west to east, the Hudson River to Broadway. It is a very fashionable neighborhood. You can find stores like Banana Republic, H&M, Zara, Club Monaco, and more. It is also the place you can find many voguish boutiques, swanky restaurants, high-end spas, etc. The buildings there are warehouses that have been converted into large working areas or living lofts. One thing for sure is that since the 1960s, when the artists changed the buildings into housing-lofts and created a more chic, luxurious living condition, the Soho area is now a more desirable place to live than ever.

The average price for a condo here is $1,205 per square foot. The co-op price is about 20% lower. The price per square foot is depending on location, apartment and building condition, size and building amenities, etc. Check on Soho — Manhattan Downtown neighborhood for more information.

7)   Lower East Side

When we talk about the Lower East Side, it refers to the area stretching from Houston Street to the Brooklyn Bridge, from Bowery to the East River. Once the world’s largest Jewish community, it has now become the destination for many shoppers seeking delicious food and bargains stores where you can score great prices.

South of Delaney, large co-ops and a few condos do exist. There are also some renovated pre-war walk-up buildings. On the northern side, there is still an area that attracts many renters. Developers and real estate investors have realized its potential already, meaning million dollars properties aren’t far behind. The average price for a condo here is $1,120 per square foot.

Manhattan Real Estate – Do you make a Right Offer?

How Do You Know You Made the Right Offer for a home?

The rules of the game here in Manhattan are very different from any other place. Therefore, doing your homework OR finding the right broker for you are very important. Our job is to help you determine what kinds of apartments and neighborhoods are suitable for you, and to guide you in regards to the property price, in order to select the best match for your real estate needs and budget.

When there is a “perfect” home comes on the market.  One of those homes that is difficult to comp.  It seems to be a little overpriced, but not grossly so. What will you do next?

  1. You can wait awhile, see it sit on the market, and watch the price drop
  2. You can make a low offer and waiting for either counter offer or rejected.
  3. Or you can overpay for the house.

Otherwise, If you are not sure that you are making the right offer for your next home in Manhattan, please hire a real estate broker who not only can help you to find perfect home for you but also help you buy it at perfect price and help you go thought all the closing process without any headache.  We are the real estate broker who studies home and price every day; we will assist you to make right decision.

There is a tip for you is, if it is a very unique home that you love so much, you may consider making full price offer right away instead later on if there is another buyer step in, then that would be either you have to pay more for the unit or become backup position.

Since in Manhattan the buyers don’t have to pay commission to your broker, why don’t you heir the broker to help you not only save your money but also hassle Free.

NYC Real Estate – How do you get Deposit Money Back when the deal falls apart?

For protect yourself when you purchase a property, contract is the rules of the game. In Manhattan, when a “meeting of the minds” occurs, the agreement fulfills, you will be asked to sign the contract and 10% of the purchase price of deposit will require for the buyer to show good faith. This money will be held in the seller’s attorney’s escrow account until closing. How does buyer Get Deposit Money back when The Deal Falls Apart? Many buyers easily get the money back with failed inspections or they cannot secure financing because they do their homework and finding the right brokers for them. Please be more cautious if you choose to deal the whole purchase process by yourself. Otherwise the real estate broker will work for you for FREE. Only the seller will be responsible for commission of both buyer’s broker and seller’s broker.
