1Q 2007 Long Island/Queens Market Overview Available For Download

April 23, 2007 | 12:03 am | | Public |

The PDF version of the 1Q 2007 Long Island/Queens Market Overview [Miller Samuel] that I write for Prudential Douglas Elliman [PDE] is available for download. We just introduced this study series in 2006.

You can see the methodology that went into the report.

You can also build your own custom data tables using the aggregate report data (from 2Q 2003 through 1Q 2007). I have created a series of quarterly market charts that may be of interest as well.

_An excerpt_

…Overall price indicators showed weakness this quarter particularly at the higher end of the market. Overall median sales price showed relative stability as compared to the same period last year while average sales price showed a modest decline. Inventory levels are expected to level off as seasonal demand increases the number of sales. Current inventory levels remain below those seen in the second and third quarters of last year. However, the number of sales for the quarter is the lowest seen in three years suggesting a lower intensity of sales activity this spring, even when seasonally adjusted….

Here’s the media coverage for the study. I think I got most of them. Normally I would have covered this the day of publication last week but if you remember, I was kind of in Seine.

Here’s the recap:

[The Hall Monitor] Supply and Demand for Coarse and Vulgar Entertainment

April 12, 2007 | 6:25 am | Radio |

Todd Huttunen began appraising more than 20 years ago with a few years off in between to pursue a career in cabinet making. He relegated that to hobby status and is currently an appraiser in an assessor’s office. His best friend dubbed him The Hall Monitor because of his rigidity and respect for rules. He offers Soapbox readers tongue-in-groove insight on appraisal issues. This week, Todd ponders the question of questionable supply, when demand is, well, demanding. …Jonathan Miller


  • Front Page (above the fold) “Imus Struggling To Retain Sway As a Franchise” (with photo)
  • Page A20 Editorial “The Rutgers Winning Team”
  • Page A20 Seven letters to the Editor (concerning yesterday’s op-ed piece “Trash Talk Radio”)
  • Page D1 “A First-Class Response To a Second-Class Put-Down”
  • Page D3 “Women’s Team Sends Imus an Angry Message”
  • Page E1 “Don Imus, Suspended, Still Talking”

The media circus surrounding this story gives me a new appreciation for the power of the free market, as expressed by the actions of buyers and sellers. Consider the product of “talk radio”, where the sellers include not only Don Imus and Howard Stern, but any number of other “shock jocks”. Judging from the reaction to the comments made by Imus with regard to the women from Rutgers, one would think that there are very few buyers for this product.

Yet, according to one of the many stories in Wednesday’s Times, “Imus in the Morning” has an average of 477,000 listeners on the New York radio station alone. What he said was offensive and degrading. But he has been saying the same kinds of things for 35 years and I don’t believe the New York Times ever printed five stories and seven letters to the Editor, concerning Don Imus, in any one issue before today.

There is a huge demand in this country for shows that provide coarse and vulgar “entertainment”. And radio is nothing as compared with television and its 500 channels. Personally, I think American Idol humiliates people and I choose not to watch, but lots of viewers disagree with me. Thanks to the remote control, everybody’s happy.

With real estate, people like to complain about how “McMansions” are ruining the neighborhood. “Those people” (developers) build them but we buy them! Whether it’s houses, radio, television, movies or music, if “we” didn’t buy it “they” wouldn’t make it.

Imus has to make amends for what he said. But we have to consider our own role in having made Imus so popular for being what he is. He is a participant in a market, as are we. Unlike the real estate market however, where demand is down, the demand for the kind of entertainment he supplies seems unending.

[Media Chain-Links => Post March Madness] 1Q 2007 Manhattan Market Overview

April 3, 2007 | 7:17 am | | Public |

My firm released the 1Q 2007 Manhattan Market Overview that we author for Prudential Douglas Elliman today. Its pretty much consumed most of my time for the past week and I am glad it is finally out. The “pretty” version should be online by the end of the day.

Note: I am equally thrilled that I won my March Madness pool last night with a Florida win.

The numbers were released and my summary of their interpretation were provided to the media for the coverage today. The actual data and charts will be available later today as well.

A year ago, I began posting the links to the coverage of each report as they are released to see how each media outlet reports the market using the exact same data. I find it to be an interesting process.

This list of articles is presented basically when I found them. I also include some duplicate news feeds because I like to see what regions are interested in the story – I place those near the bottom because of the repetition. I’ll keep adding links through the end of the week.

[The Hall Monitor] The Lake Wobegon Assessor’s Office

January 15, 2007 | 12:01 am | Radio |

Todd Huttunen began appraising more than 20 years ago with a few years off in between to pursue a career in cabinet making. He relegated that to hobby status and is currently an appraiser in an assessor’s office. His best friend dubbed him The Hall Monitor because of his rigidity and respect for rules. He offers Soapbox readers tongue-in-groove insight on appraisal issues. Today he pays homage to the midwest, where all the assessors are above-average. …Jonathan Miller


I’ve never been to Minneapolis, Minnesota and most of what I know about it came from listening to the dulcet tones of Garrison Keillor and his public radio production, “A Prairie Home Companion“. Personally, I think he’s hilarious (it’s a Scandinavian thing – my forebears came from Finland).

What brings me to Minnesota today, specifically Minneapolis, is the internet and how it has changed and will continue to change the nature of the appraisal profession. In the interest of full disclosure, I am NOT a computer guy. I can’t even insert the hyper-links to the websites referenced in this post without Jonathan Miller‘s help. But lately I’ve started to fool around with stuff like Google Earth and Spatial Comps and other GIS related programs.

Those of you who are closer to the technological cutting edge than I (which should be most everyone under my age of 50 and quite a few who are older), already know what the impact of the internet has been. But just in case any of you are still underneath the giant rock I just crawled out from under, allow me to share my wonder at some of what I found in the on-line world of 2007.

I went to the website for the City of Minneapolis to see what I could find out about the city, specifically with regard to real estate value trends, recent sales, etc. To my utter amazement, the information that was readily available, and free, was voluminous. From a list of the various neighborhoods in the city I chose, at random, to search “Kenwood” and immediately saw displayed seventeen sales. Five of these were on the same street, Oliver Avenue. In case you’re looking for a house on Oliver Avenue, please note:

1722 Oliver Ave. sold 8/06 for $715,000
2208 Oliver Ave. sold 5/06 for $888,500
2212 Oliver Ave. sold 11/06 for $875,000
2312 Oliver Ave. sold 7/06 for $873,775
2410 Oliver Ave. sold 9/06 for $1,100,000

In minutes I had not only the sale dates and sale prices, but also lot sizes, year built, gross living area and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms for each house. In addition, I found the assessed values going back as far as 1988, as well as taxes, both current and historical. Another mouse click gave me the building permit history for each property.

BTW, the sale at 2410 Oliver appears to have been a teardown since a demo permit was taken a month after closing. That lot, nearly one third of an acre, happens to be twice the size of the others so perhaps it had subdivision potential. I didn’t spend any time researching zoning maps and ordinances, but they were available, had I been so inclined.

The coolest thing they have is the GIS link which gives you the aerial photograph zoom in to see a close-up of the “roof print”, zoom out for a wider perspective of the surrounding area – not to mention the additional “map layers” with lot dimensions and other useful stuff. Even if most municipalities in the country don’t have what Minneapolis has on line (Peoria didn’t, and that was the only other one I checked) you can still use Google Earth to get that “overview”.

My initial reaction to what I found in the assessment records for Minneapolis was jealousy. Because I work in an assessor’s office in Westchester County, NY and the practice of assessment in most of Westchester is still in the Stone Age by comparison. What a joy it must be to do appraisals in Minneapolis, where you can get such detailed information without even picking up the phone.

It’s really not fair when you think about it. Out there in the Midwest, where everybody’s so polite and helpful they’d be happy to give you anything you need if you called, you can get everything you need on-line. Here in New York, where there’s almost nothing available on-line, you’re at the mercy of someone at the other end of the phone. You’d better hope the person who answers the phone is from the Midwest.

[Commercial Grade] Just Another Day In Manhattan

January 8, 2007 | 9:46 pm | Radio |

Commercial Grade is a weekly post by John Cicero, MAI who provides commentary on issues affecting real estate appraisers, with specific focus on commercial valuation. John looks forward to the day when appraisers are not seen as a nuisance, and its sooner than you think.

Disclosure: John is a partner of mine in our commercial real estate valuation concern Miller Cicero, LLC and he is, on Thursdays on Mondays, one of the smartest guys I know. …Jonathan Miller


Our offices closed at 10 am Monday morning. I came out of Grand Central Station after my morning commute and immediately smelled gas. The smell stayed with me during the four block walk to the office and up the elevator. Some of the appraisers in the office smelled it and some did notbut the longer we smelled it the more concerned we got. A few of us started to get dizzy, others started to get nauseous.

Maybe it was psycho-somatic (I was a psychology major, after all!) but when 1010 Wins (the local news radio station) described it as a “mysterious gas-like odor” and officials had not yet identified the source there was a brief tinge of panic.

I was in midtown the morning of 9-11 five years ago and watched the towers burn from the corner of 40th and 5thhow could you not think the worst when there are reports of mysterious gasses enveloping Manhattan, extending to Jersey and Brooklyn? For a moment, however brief, I thought …bio-terrorism.

So, my employees and I each worked from home that day and by noon it was clear that perhaps I had been a bit of an alarmist. But then againI’d probably do the same thing tomorrow.

[Media Chain-Links Without The Snow] 4Q 2006 Manhattan Market Overview

January 3, 2007 | 8:51 am | | Public |

The 4Q 2006 Manhattan Market Overview that my appraisal firm, Miller Samuel, authors for Prudential Douglas Elliman, was released for publication today. In order to include the entire quarter for the study, I spent the good part of the New Years weekend while away on vacation in a Starbucks crunching and analyzing while drinking too many vanilla skim lattes. Thats why the pretty version of the report will be available in a few days rather at the point of release to the media.

The raw numbers were released and my summary of their interpretation were provided to the media for the coverage today. The actual data and charts will be available soon online. I tend focus only on the data collection, verification and analysis until the media publishes the findings.

Each quarter I place links to articles about our market report for a few days after publication for perspective (plus I am obessed with making lists) to make it easy to compare how each media outlet (big and small media, blogs) presents the exact same set of data.

This article list is presented in no particular order, basically when I found them. I also include some duplicate news feeds because I like to see what regions are interested in the story – I place those near the bottom because of the repetition. I’ll keep adding links through the end of the week.

Reading The Signs: Casual Fonts To Hook The Naive

November 22, 2006 | 2:18 pm | | Radio |

About 6 months ago, I first noticed one of these signs in my home town.

But they multiplied and soon they were everywhere. I was at a party a few months ago and met Alexis Palmer, the advertising guru at Curbed who asked me if I had noticed these signs as well. I did and meant to take a picture.

Well today I finally got around to it.

What would possess someone to call the number to get into real estate investment (excluding crank calls)? The casual style suggests someone just hand wrote the sign because either they were too busy investing or because its some sort of soft sell approach (until you see them on every block).

I noticed on WFAN, an AM radio station in New York, that every other commercial is “How to get rich in real estate”, “How to buy a foreclosed house for $99 per month” and others, hawking free books and seminars on the subject.

The FTC processes public relations incentived complaints about Zillow and yet this radio stuff goes unchecked. Should public advertising and radio commercials have different regulatory standards than the Internet?

New Brokerage Models Flourish (NAR Needs Redfin’s PR Firm)

September 5, 2006 | 12:01 am | | Radio |

Damon Darlin’s The Last Stand of the 6-Percenters? [NYT] was a really great overview of new brokerage services that are being offered. The article was very informative. However, after reading it, the article made me wonder who on earth would ever use a traditional broker again? Its not what I think the intention of the piece was.

New technology and new business models were pitted against longstanding tradition and a proven track record. There was a great phrase in the article referring to the difficulty of innovation in the real estate brokerage industry:

It’s a thousand tiny shackles on innovation.

A valid point. Innovation can ruffle feathers.

Well, rather than the idea that full service brokers are obsolete, I think the takeaway should be that there is room for both the old and the new. Like Dottie Herman, CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman (the firm for whom I author their market reports for) said at Inman San Francisco: Technology won’t replace agents, agents with technology will replace agents [RCG]. Exactly.

The irony in all this is the fact that the housing boom coincided with new venture capital monies which provided the opportunity for so many real estate start-ups to in fact, start-up. In fact, I see this as more of a dotcom real estate boom, with so many legitimate business models, rather than most of the silliness we saw in the previous dotcom boom, where thoughts of actually turning a profit would be figured out later.

Some of these new real estate technology sites will fail as the housing markets cool or their idea doesn’t catch on, while others will survive and thrive. Change can be good but its kind of hard when the system in place has been around for a long time.

I find that one of the weaker arguments to the new real estate models has been the idea of cost savings. Despite the near monopoly of listings through traditional MLS systems, there is the assumption that its an even playing field. In other words, users of these discount brokers assume that the property gets exposed equally whether its a Foxtons listing (remember Your Homes Direct?), a Redfin listing or a full service listing, when in fact, I would speculate that it does not.

More eyeballs on a property, especially broker eyeballs, yield a higher chance for a higher price or simply a sale. In other words, a seller may be saving costs, but they could be working off a lower base (sales price) number because of the lower exposure. The cost savings seems to be more of a potential future benefit than at present and its not really comparing apples with apples (in theory it is, but not in practice). The MLS system is proprietary.

And what is it with NAR and public relations? How can the NAR stir such ill will on a consistent basis? I continue to be amazed by their complacency and their disconnect with the public as an organization. Its tough to accept their word as gospel anymore. Even their current radio and TV ads about code of ethics seems to be too little too late. Its simply not fair to most realtors who are nice normal people and not the stereotype the profession has gained a rep for in recent years.

As a result, if you want to create a new real estate brokerage business model, now seems to be as good a time as ever.

[Podcast] Downsizing: Moving Down The Property Ladder

August 23, 2006 | 6:57 am | Public |

Everyone looking at clues for weakness in the housing market and possible new trends. Bob Moon explored this in the recent piece called Downsize my space [APM] where he interviewed a series of experts (including me) and consumers on the idea of trading down to smaller houses or rentals. Essentially cashing out of the housing boom.

The main story idea came from David Seiders of the National Association of Homebuilders, who is essentially their spokesman and suggests that the trend in expansion of the average home size since the 1970’s is easing. Decreasing affordability will cause them to be built smaller to keep the prices down.

I can seen his point. As housing costs rise, it would appear to be a reasonable assumption that the average size would contract. He doesn’t appear to be providing real evidence of this as a long term change, however. I think a problem with this logic is the idea that home sizes increased since the 1970’s even as home affordability was much less in the 1980’s and 1990’s with mortgage rates 2 to 3 times as high and strict requirements on 20% down payments a standard.

I provided the observation that people are trading down, not to cash out, but to buy a second home, which has been a factor of improved affordability. Keep the payments the same, but have more places to live. I would suggest that the second home market would be hurt well before people would purchase smaller primary homes.

Happy Birthday To Matrix

August 1, 2006 | 12:01 am | | Radio |

Well, its August 1, 2006 and its been a year to the day (technically not until 9:37pm, but who says there is that sort of precision in blogging) since I made my first post “Appraising the appraisers” on National Public Radio on Matrix.

A few months prior to the first post, I had given serious thought to starting a weekly podcast to be able to express my views on real estate, a topic I am very passionate about, in an objective sort of way. While I was very excited about the new podcast medium (still am), I wasn’t sure if it would allow me the outlet I was looking for. I saw that many podcasts were delivered at that time through blogs and then it clicked…a blog! Why not 2 blogs?

I dubbed one blog Soapbox, which would cover appraisal specific topics (hey, I’m an appraiser). The name Soapbox was a title of a section I was planning to build on my web site MillerSamuel.com to address the issues facing appraisers of the day. Simply standing on a soapbox seemed necessary to make appraisers heard. On July 18, 2005 (more than a year ago) I made my first post on my other blog Soapbox called The beginning of the end, or how this mess got started. I dove right in and worked out the technology kinks and created some efficiencies to make it practical to run 2 blogs.

The other blog I dubbed Matrix which would cover the real estate economy. The name Matrix concerned itself with a definition at dictionary.com: A situation or surrounding substance within which something else originates, develops, or is contained. It seemed that real estate was that surrounding substance, plus the movie was pretty cool, even on the 10th viewing (just the first movie). Last month, Matrix was finalist in the 2006 Inman Innovator Award Finalist for a real estate blog, which was very gratifying, especially given the company of the other finalists.

I have learned a lot from the process and simply enjoy writing and getting feedback from readers as well as lurkers I run into as I do my job. Its like doing your homework on the issues of the day, so I am usually prepared to discuss the topics when at a speaking engagement. I love exporing topics and finding that angle that has not been explored before. I can’t stand blogs that simply copy news from media outlets and other blogs and provide no insight.

There are always plenty of topics to cover since the real estate market dynamic is always changing.

My family has accommodated me timewise – at first they didn’t get what was so exciting about it – my 7 year old son (I have 4 sons) would ask me “Dad, are you going to blog today?” I changed my schedule so I go to bed at a reasonable hour to be able to get up at 4:30am to write my posts. Since August 2005, I have only missed a few days and have written 772 posts on Matrix (excluding Soapbox). Somedays 5 posts, somedays 1.

Its been completely fun. More to come. Thanks for reading and sharing. Just remember one thing, if you call me for market feedback or insight, I am going to ask you if you read Matrix today. I am relentless about that. Just ask anyone who knows me. 😉

[Media Chain-links] 2Q 2006 Manhattan Market Overview

July 6, 2006 | 6:07 am | | Public |

The 2Q 2006 Manhattan Market Overview that my appraisal firm, Miller Samuel, prepares for Prudential Douglas Elliman, was released today. Each quarter I place links throughout the day of publication to make it easy to compare how each media outlet (big and small media, blogs) presents the exact same set of data.

Even more interesting to me is how the other real estate brokerage companies who write alternative reports, frame their comments in the articles. While I have not had access to their specific results, I understand that some of the statistics such as average sales price, differed from the results in our report. Some of the reporters that cover the real estate market in New York have expressed frustration at trying to discern what actually happened this quarter.

To view the actual data and charts (going live by noon Friday 7-7-07). The actual report pdf will be available next week.

This list is in no particular order and were generally presented when I found them. I included some of the duplicate news feeds because I found it interesting who picked up the story. I will keep adding to the list through the remainder of the week.
