Queens Real Estate Market

Looking for a place to live in NYC without the sky-high prices of Manhattan and Brooklyn? Queens is a great place to start looking for a break from the above-average cost of living in New York City. Queens is typically a more affordable place to find a New York City home than these neighboring boroughs, where the median list price is usually well over $1 million.

Thanks to its larger land area, Queens County is one of the best places to shop single-family homes for sale in the city, as it typically has the largest inventory available and the prices can be surprisingly affordable. For those whose budget is higher, Queens luxury homes offer amazing accommodations, listing in the multi-million price range and presenting property types that vary from Mediterranean-inspired custom-built villas to stately Tudor mansions to expansive colonial homes on large lots.

Queens condos and apartments are, unsurprisingly, one of the most common property types in the area. Co-ops generally start around $100,000, with two-bedroom condos typically starting in the mid-$100s and three-bedrooms typically starting in the mid-$200s. At the high end of the scale, Queens has some fantastic high-rise apartment buildings with home values over $2 million. Enjoy penthouses with panoramic views, upscale building amenities, corner units bathed in natural sunlight, and views of the Manhattan skyline through your living room window.

While Queens is largely considered one of the more affordable boroughs that make up New York City, real estate tends to get more expensive the closer you get to the Manhattan community. Some of the more upscale neighborhoods in the west of Queens include the Forest Hills neighborhood, the Jackson Heights neighborhood, the Astoria community, and Long Island City.

Queens Community Amenities

Queens places a high value on outdoor recreational opportunities and has many parks, the most notable of which being Flushing Meadows Corona Park. This park was the site of both the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs and is now a massive public space that features art installations, museums, green spaces, and more. Each summer, the park also plays host to the U.S. Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Meadow Lake at the park's center is the largest fishable body of freshwater in New York City at 95 acres, and it connects to the 45-acre Willow Lake as well.

For those who love to shop, Queens has no shortage of options. For luxury brands and high-end retailers, head to the Americana Manhasset on Long Island. This outdoor shopping center is home to brands like Ralph Lauren, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton. Or, for an indoor shopping experience with a bustling atmosphere, check out the Queens Center Mall in Elmhurst. That said, there are quite a number of commercial areas in Queens, so take a look around and find your favorite!

Food lovers will also find plenty to enjoy in Queens. The Queens Night Market is a massive outdoor seasonal market featuring live entertainment and up to 100 vendors selling food, art, and more. For those who prefer a sit-down meal, Queens has a plethora of excellent restaurants, ranging from Michelin-starred establishments to more casual cafes and diners with a dazzling array of international cuisine.
