As the first few regions of New York enter Phase 1 of the State’s re-opening plan, I wanted to share some data on where the NYC real estate market is now, and what we may see in the second half of 2020. 

Current Market Conditions

Since the “NY on PAUSE” order began on March 22, agents have been extremely limited in their ability to list, market, and show properties. While some transactions have taken place, most have been closings of deals that had been negotiated before March 22nd.
