Two bedrooms, $2 million
REAL ESTATE • On the Market
In the bubble of Manhattan real estate, the de facto luxury market — which Elliman defines as the top 10% of sales — now starts at $4 million. That’s up 4.7% year-over-year, and with inventory down 9.2% over the period, there hasn’t been much pressure to price down.
But, wow, those interest rates. This week, the average 30-year-fixed topped 8% for the first time this century. It’s a number that may cause even the most price-insensitive non-cash buyer to blink at the monthlies on $4 million. (Even cash buyers like to carry a little debt on the balance sheet.) So maybe today is a good time to remember that Manhattan is also a place where lovely two-bedrooms trade in the $2-million range. Here, three downtown to get started:
