NY: Real Estate Inventory Increasing After Labor Day

New York Real EstateAs usual, Labor Day marked a pick-up in sales inventory after the typically slow summer. The seasonal increase should lead to more opportunity for buyers and more sales. According to Noah Rosenblatt, founder of UrbanDigs.com, a website that tracks Manhattan’s inventory in real time, post-Labor Day sales inventory is on par with last year, when there was a 12.5% increase in listings from the beginning of September to October.

During the week after Labor Day this year, 560 new sales listings were added, representing a 4.5% inventory increase.
