The gulf between New York City’s real estate market and the rest of the country has always been wide. But that disconnect appears to be growing.
“Manhattan seems to be one of the lucky ones,” said Jonathan Miller, president and CEO of Miller Samuel, who called the Big Apple one of “the best housing markets in the country, relatively.”
For example, Manhattan’s median residential sale price in the second quarter was only 17 percent below the market peak in 2008, according to the most recent report from brokerage Prudential Douglas Elliman, which is prepared by Miller. That’s an improvement from the worst depths of the downturn, when Manhattan prices were 25 to 30 percent below the high, said Miller, who also does market research for Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Miami.
