[Miller Cicero] New York City Income Property Market Report Second Half 2008 Is Available For Download

March 21, 2009 | 7:56 am | Reports |

Our commercial advisory firm just released its New York City Income Property Market Report for the second half of 2008 for Massey Knakal. My commercial valuation partner John Cicero prepares the report. It’s the only report of its kind that covers the New York City commercial market.

Here’s what he says:
The Massey Knakal Income Property Report that I prepare on behalf of the brokerage firm was just released for the second half of 2008. The report is the only one of its kind that tracks cap rates, income multipliers, price per square foot and number of sales for the New York City multi-family market. As this report included only those sales (above $500,000) that closed from July 1 through December 31, it includes sales closed before and after the market turn in mid-September, when Lehman collapsed and the credit markets seized.

An excerpt:

The number of sales dropped 45% from the second half of 2007 to the second half of 2008. Relative to the prior year the greatest declines were in Manhattan and Northern Manhattan, both down 54%, and the Bronx, down 60%. Year over year there were 37% fewer sales in 2008. This suggests a turnover rate of 1.9%, down from 3.0% in 2007 (of the categories tracked).

Massey Knakal will distribute nearly 300,000 hard copies of the report over the next few months.

Our commercial advisory firm just released its New York City Income Property Market Report for the first half of 2008 for Massey Knakal. My commercial valuation partner John Cicero prepares the report. It’s the only report of its kind that covers the New York City commercial market.

Here’s an excerpt:

Though underwriting may be more conservative, the decline in sales volume is a function of lack of inventory rather than lack of demand. The underlying rental market remains strong and investors continue to be interested in such property but supply is constrained. The consolidated median price per square foot across markets declined to $222, down 5% from the prior six month period. Similarly, the median cap rate (across all sectors) inched up slightly to 5.8% from 5.5% from the prior period while the median GIM slipped from 12.4 to 11.5…

[Miller Cicero] New York City Income Property Market Report Second Half 2007 Is Available For Download

Our commercial advisory firm just released its New York City Income Property Market Report for the second half of 2007 for Massey Knakal. My commercial valuation partner John Cicero prepares the report. It’s the only report of its kind in the New York City commercial market.

Here’s an excerpt:

In the second half of 2007 credit tightened considerably as the losses in sub-prime mortgages worked their way through the financial markets. While indicators are somewhat mixed, in general during this period prices for income property remained stable throughout the city, though the number of sales dropped, in some instances quite dramatically. This reflects the “wait and see” attitude that characterized the period, with fewer buyers bidding and sellers reluctant to lower prices. The fundamentals of the market remained strong, however, with high apartment rents and very low vacancy. The prospect of turning over below market rent-regulated units to higher market levels continues to attract investors, and credit, though tighter, was still available albeit from different sources. Cap rates and gross income multipliers remained stable.

The number of sales dropped 16% from the first half of 2007 to the second half, though the decline was only 7% from the second half of 2006 to the second half of 2007. On a calendar year basis, there were overall 10.5% fewer sales in 2007 than 2006. Though the number of walk-up apartment buildings in Manhattan showed a sharp decline from the first half of the year, calendar year 2007 sales actually show a 16% increase over calendar year 2006…

Miller Cicero’s New York City Income Property Market Report First Half 2007 Is Released

November 28, 2007 | 10:28 pm |

Our commercial advisory firm just released its New York City Income Property Market Report for the first half of 2007. My commercial valuation partner John Cicero put the report together. Its the only one of its kind available.

Here’s an excerpt:

The number of closed sales was up 11.3% in the first half of 2007 compared to the prior six month period, driven by the sales activity in Manhattan, including Northern Manhattan. Manhattan saw twice as many walk ups sold in the first six months of 2007 compared to the second half of 2006. Along with the increase in the number of sales, the median price of a Manhattan apartment building showed a sharp increase as well, breaking $500 per square foot for the first time. The median price of a walk-up apartment building in Northern Manhattan also set a record, exceeding $300 per square foot. The outer boroughs were mixed, however, as the price of walk-up apartment buildings in Brooklyn and Queens remained relatively flat, while Bronx saw a decline in price to $100 per square foot. The cap rates for walk-up apartment buildings, which comprise the greatest sample size, illustrated further compression in Manhattan, including Northern Manhattan, and generally remained flat in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. Though the number of sales is up sharply from the second half of 2006, with 2,063 closed sales compared to 1,852, there were nonetheless 13% fewer sales than the first half of 2006, one year ago, which was the most active period of the past four years…

Northern Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx each saw the number of sales decline from 17% to 21%.

The market- wide turnover rate was 1.5% in the second half of 2006 (down from 1.9% the prior half) a total turnover rate of 3.4% for the year.
