"The real estate market is changing."

It's a phrase we have been uttering for many months now, drawing in leading indicators to do so. But what does that mean for a seller? A homeowner who is unsure what to do when the wisdom learned over the past few years are suddenly invalid because everything is in a state of flux?

That's the topic of our latest live video discussion with PR Director Hannah Jay and RealEstateSINY.com Broker/Co-Owner Anthony Licciardello. This talk is designed for either someone getting ready to sell in a changing market, or somebody who has already struggled to generate interest in their home because the market is changing too fast to keep up.

We get into some of the reasons the market could be changing- largely,

On the whole, US homeowners still routinely prefer detached homes. 82%, in fact, according to the US Census Bureau in 2015. Just 5.5% of US homeowners live in townhomes. But this is another story in metropolitan areas like New York.

Semi-attached homes, which refer to a dwelling that shares a common wall with another, are extremely popular in Staten Island and the outer New York City boroughs in general. This type of home, ideal for small urban and suburban land plots, has a rich and varied history of helping to meet housing demand in densely populated areas throughout the world.

 

A Brief History of Semi-Attached Homes

To accommodate growing populations and save on construction costs, semi-attached homes popped up all over Staten Island post

Welcome to 2019! It's hard to believe we just finished off another year. Our year covering real estate and local events in Staten Island has taught us a few things, and we cover the past month and year in January's market discussion here via Facebook Live!

Now that we have December's numbers in, a clear price drop of about $10,000 was observed since the previous month of November's average. Current data for December puts the average sale price at $588,613. Up in the air was the question of whether or not average home sale prices on Staten Island WOULD top $600k by the end of 2018. Ironically, the adjusted average for November (numbers always fluctuate a little after the initial stats release) ended up being $599,999- the irony is real.

What are your shopping habits for the holidays? Do you shop mostly online, or do you still love the traditional experience of shopping in person? In our latest Facebook live video, PR Director Hannah Jay and Broker/Co-Owner Anthony Licciardello get into large-scale developments happening right now in Staten Island's retail sector.

First, the elephant in the room is the Empire Outlets. Just this development alone is slated to house 1.1 million square feet of retail- including a 33,000 square foot H&M and 30,000 square foot Nordstrom Rack!

Also on the horizon are a total of 4 new movie theatres, including an IMAX and dine-in cinema and brewery. Currently, we have just two movie theatres. While two might be too few, is 6 more than we need?

This real estate market seems to get stranger and stranger. With prices reaching an all-time high yet again, sales are down and inventory is up. Days on the market are also up. This appears to contradict supply and demand- if homes are selling more slowly and inventory is fairly high, why then is the average price going up?

November's average home sale price came in at $597,426. This makes it very likely that sold prices will reach (or top) an average of $600,000 by the end of 2018.

Inventory is a different story though. It has remained basically unchanged for seven months in a row now at roughly 2,000 homes on the market. And sales are also down about 5% since last year. Just 360 homes sold on Staten Island last month. So why the high prices?
