Understanding these fluctuations can significantly impact your real estate strategies. Here's an in-depth look at the current trends and what they mean for you.

Market Overview

As of April 2024, the median sold price in Manhattan stands at $1,356,000, reflecting a slight dip of 0.9% from last year. This minor decrease highlights how even small fluctuations can influence the market:

  • Four-bedroom homes: Increased significantly by 99.8%
  • Five-bedroom properties: Decreased by 15.2%
