The Manhattan real estate market continues to show an abundance of strength. According to the Market Pulse, Manhattan is no longer a buyer’s market, and is now a neutral market. The Market Pulse continues to rise as contract activity increases at a faster pace than new supply. The same number of new listings came to market and more contracts were signed this week compared to the same week last year. 

Supply surprisingly decreased 1.7% from last week to 7,223 units. This week 332 new listings came to market, which is the same number that came on the market the same week last year. This week is the first time this year that weekly new supply was not below last year’s level. Overall supply is still trending downwards.

Pending Sales continues to increase, up 2% to 3,339, fueled by strong buyer activity. Pending sales Is 35% higher than the same time last year.

Contracts Signed - 260 contracts were signed this week, the highest in well over a year, an increase of 7% from last week and 23% from the same week last year. 

Weekly Market Pulse - The ratio of weekly contracts signed to weekly new supply also captures the shifting leverage from buyers towards sellers. The lower the percentage, the more anemic the market [favoring buyers], the higher the percentage the more active the market is [favoring sellers].

The weekly market pulse in 2021 is higher than the same period in 2020, illustrating the relative strength of the market.
