WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT MNS’ FIFTH ANNUAL YEAR END REPORT

Queens

MNS is proud to present our fifth annual Year End Report for Queens, the summation of a year’s worth of data collected from our monthly Queens Rental Market Reports. We hope you find this report useful in determining the rental trends present in Queens’ major neighborhoods, as well as the overall climate of the Queens rental market.

When looking at the average prices of the whole of 2020, the year-in-review, does not look too bleak. However, when looking at the average prices for the 2nd half of 2020 compared to that of 2019, we dosee the apparent effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as detailed on Page 6, herein. Looking at the former, compared to last year, overall rental prices in Queens are down 0.62%, from $2,284 in 2019 to $2,268 this past year. Studio rental prices are down 1.07% year-over-year, from $1,871 to $1,851. Year-over-year, one-bedroom rental prices are down 1.66%, from $2,213 to $2,177. Conversely, two-bedroom rental prices are up by 0.52%, from $2,766 to $2,781. Overall, the average rental price in Queens fell by 0.62%, from $2,284 in 2019 to $2,269.

Over the last year, the greatest studio price change was observed in Flushing, where the average rental price increased by 4.15%, from $1,651 in 2019 to $1,719 this past year. Long Island City was home to the greatest price change within one-bedroom pricing, with average prices falling by 5.29%, from $3,225 in 2019 to $3,083. The greatest year-over-year change within two-bedroom pricing occurred in Flushing. Thanks to a significant increase in the share of luxury inventory in the area, Flushing two-bedroom apartments saw their average rental price increase by 6.82%, from $2,530 to $2,703.

While the general Queens rental market remained stable through 2020, Long Island City was particularly affected by the pandemic. When compared to 2019, average rental prices in Long Island City were down across-the-board. Overall, the average rental price in Long Island City fell by 4.21%, with studio, onebedroom, and two-bedroom units experiencing average price drops of 3.10%, 5.29%, and 4.07%, respectively. Looking at the effects of COVID-19 in the 2nd half of 2020 on Page 6, we see these numbers further inflate.

THE REPORT EXPLAINED

THE QUEENS RENTAL MARKET REPORT IS THE ONLY REPORT THAT COMPARES FLUCTUATION IN THE CITY’S RENTAL DATA ON A MONTHLY BASIS. IT IS AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR POTENTIAL RENTERS SEEKING TRANSPARENCY IN THE NYC APARTMENT MARKET AND A BENCHMARK FOR LANDLORDS TO EFFICIENTLY AND FAIRLY ADJUST INDIVIDUAL PROPERTY RENTS IN QUEENS.

The Queens Rental Market Report is based on data cross-sectioned from over 10,000 currently available listings priced under $10,000, with ultra-luxury property omitted to obtain a true monthly rental average. Our data is aggregated from the MNS proprietary database and sampled from a specific mid-month point to record current rental rates offered by landlords during that particular month. It is then combined with information from the REBNY Real Estate Listings Source (RLS), OnLine Residential (OLR. com) and R.O.L.E.X. (Real Plus).
