Home prices in the New York area did not fall nearly as far as they did elsewhere.  New York is still relatively healthier than the nation as a whole.

The New York metro numbers include portions of Connecticut and New Jersey. It does not track average prices for co-ops and condominiums, experts who follow that type of housing stock in the five boroughs of New York City, are stable and on the rise (due to the lack of new condo developments) specifically in Manhattan.

Prices and sales volume for Manhattan real estate continued to hold relatively steady in the second quarter of 2012, because of a continued decline in inventory, low interest rates and increased foreign investment.

The median sale price for the second quarter was $840,000, up 2.4% from the same period in 2011, according to a report from StreetEasy.com.

New York poised to help drive a Housing Recovery.

The future for housing is looking bright in the New York metro area.   NYC avoided the worst of the housing bubble, experiencing a drop in prices as rents kept rising.  Over the last year, New York saw a 1.4% rise in rents and a 2.3% price decline.  This factor points to a rebound in home prices and construction activity in the future.  When rent increases exceed home value increases, more and more potential buyers are swayed toward buying versus continuing to rent.

The Sky’s the Limit for NYC Jobs

SOURCE: Crain’s New York Business, April 2012

The city’s Independent Budget Office (IBO) issued the most extraordinary forecast late last month that predicts the brightest future for New York City.

The IBO took another look at the city’s prospects after the state Labor Department revised sharply upward the number of jobs New York added in the last two years. The IBO predicts NYC will surpass the 1969 jobs record this year.

That would be a very significant milestone. The 3 times, New York approached that figure were during periods of economic expansion.

Even more impressive—the IBO forecasts that the economy will be so buoyant that by 2016 New York will boast more than 4.1 million jobs. That’s 350,000 more than the 1969 figure.

Many people had to adjust their view of the city’s economy when we found out the city added so many more jobs than we thought in 2011, including on Wall Street. I also know a new employment peak is likely this year.  Source: Dallas Business Journal

In an analysis of data for job growth during the past 12 months, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said New York City was No. 1 for Job Growth  with +143,000 jobs.

NEW YORK– Bank of America released the fall 2012 Small Business Owner Report, a semi-annual study exploring the concerns, aspirations and perspectives of small business owners across the country. The survey, which includes an oversampling of small business owners across the metro New York City market, found the majority of metro New York’s small business owners are planning on sustaining or growing their business over the next 12 months. Specifically, more than one-quarter (27 percent) plan on hiring more employees, while 52 percent expect their staffing needs will remain consistent.

In addition, more than half (51 percent) of the metro New York small business owners surveyed anticipated that revenue will increase in 2013, while 13 percent expect revenue to decline. However, this optimism is tempered by their views on the economy, with only 35 percent of metro New York small business owners confident that their local economy will improve over the next 12 months. Respondents were even less confident in the national (34 percent) and global economies (24 percent) improving in that same period.
