MARKET SUMMARY

Quarter-over-quarter, the total number of sponsor sales in Manhattan decreased by 10.3%, from 224 total sales during 2Q20 to 201 sales this past quarter. In that same span, total sales volume increased by 48.0%, from $870,839,913 to $1,288,417,256. The median price per square foot decreased by 1.7%, from $2,136 during 2Q20 to $2,101 this past quarter. Additionally, the median sales price increased by 18.2%, from $2,579,000 during 2Q20 to $3,049,659 this past quarter. Year-over-year, median price per square foot is up 0.5%, from $2,090 during 3Q20 to $2,101 during this past quarter. In that same span, median sales price improved by 23.2%, from $2,475,000 during 3Q19 to $3,049,659 this past quarter. These large jumps in median pricing can attributed to the fact that three bedroom and larger units represented a greater proportion of total sales this past quarter when compared to previous quarters.

Out of 201 total sales, 52 or 25.87% took place in the Upper West Side. The next highest number of sales took place in Midtown West, where 30 or 14.93% of all sponsor sales took place.

Through 3Q20, both the highest price per square foot and highest price paid for a sponsor unit took place at 220 Central Park South, where unit PH76 sold for $99,903,375 or $12,164.05 per square foot.
