The Changing Market for Rentals


Share

Even with a host of new rental developments over the last three years, at a time where high construction costs are making developers turn to new condominiums, there is a dwindling supply of rental units in the city right now. Many of the buildings you see are converting to condominium or co-operatives. We lost over a quarter of a million rental units in 2006 to this type of conversion.
Finding adequate housing is tougher than ever due to this alone. Coupled with the increase in population due to new hires, relocations, births, etc., you can see the dilemma. Where are we all going to live? There are more new condominiums going up in Manhattan than anywhere in the world except China.

Here is a snapshot of the average current market rents as of today.
