market report: Brooklyn Year End Market Report - 02/27/15 09:38 PM
Brooklyn Year End Review
Intense demand in Brooklyn fueled price improvements in all metrics during 2014. Overall average condo and co-op price was 12% higher than a year ago and average price per square foot grew 9%. Overall median price increased 3%, exhibiting slight price growth in the middle of the market.
Historically low condo and co-op inventory contributed to the 5% decline in the number of closed sales. New developments introduced during 2014 provided little relief to the long-term inventory shortage as most buildings have been met with fast absorption despite continued price increases.
Just over 3,800 apartments … (4 comments)
