Average Manhattan, New York Apartment Prices

Posted by Wei Min Tan on May 11, 2022

Average Manhattan apartment prices are based on whether the apartment is a condo or coop.  Price per square foot of a condo is higher than for a coop because:  a condo owner gets real estate title, does not require board approval and can rent out the apartment as desired without limitation.

 

Average Manhattan, New York Apartment Prices (Condo)

The average sale price for a condo ranges from $908,991 for a studio apartment to $9,846,869 for 4+ bedroom apartments.  Meanwhile, the average price per square foot ranges from $1,138 for a studio to $2,738 for 4+ bedroom apartments.

 

As apartments get larger, the price per square foot increases.  Why?  Generally, it’s because the larger apartments are on higher floors and have better views.  Therefore, larger apartments get higher price per square foot.

 

 

Average Manhattan, New York Apartment Prices (Co-Op)

The average price per square foot for a co-op is roughly 50 percent lower than that of a condo.  Average sale price for a co-op  ranges from $553,734 for a studio to $5,109,433 for a 4+ bedroom apartment.  The average price square foot ranges from $852 to $1,596.

 

The trend is similar with condos and co-ops; as size of apartment increases, the average price per square foot increases as well.

 

 

Number of Sales by Size

2020 was Covid year and the market was shut down for three months.  The bottom of the market during the Covid period was in July of 2020.  The market recovery started in 2021 and we had record high sales volume.  Sales volume in 2021 was almost as high as 2007 driven by pent up demand, low mortgage rates and overall optimism as the vaccines came out.

 

The most recent quarterly numbers in 2022 shows the same trend.   Supply has increased a bit, to the relief of buyers.  Overall market is defined by low supply and very high demand.
