It's a great time to purchase a home in NYC. Inventory is high in Manhattan, and nationwide home mortgage rates have dropped to impressively low numbers. 

"The combination of lower rates – especially compared to last spring – and moderating home-price growth improves buyers' purchasing power and will hopefully translate to a somewhat faster pace of home sales than previously expected," chief economist for the Mortgage Bankers Association Mike Fratantoni told CNBC

Elegran clients have been taking advantage of this buyer's market and purchased some gorgeous homes last month. Here are some of the largest deals Elegran agents closed in March :
