After a bit of a hiatus, we finally sat down to talk the latest real estate market data we have- and much of it will surprise you!

There's a lot to unpack here. First, the average home sale price of $570k fell over the previous month, and last year. This is the FIRST time this has happened in several years, and offers pretty strong proof that the market has slowed down. For the last six months, prices had fluctuated but still remained higher than the previous year.

We also had just 261 sales last month! Again, the slowest activity we have seen in 2+ years, this time when it comes to sales volume. We do have a good clue as to why this is happening. Even though the average sale price is $4k LESS than last year, the average new list price is

So much has happened over the last ten years in real estate! Between a recession that was in full force circa 2009, through the recovery, and into a rapidly accelerating market followed by a slowdown... we've pretty much seen it all.

So for our latest live video discussion, we decided to sit down and talk about the past decade and what lessons we have learned selling real estate in an ever-changing market. Broker and co-owner of RealEstateSINY.com Anthony Licciardello is interviewed to tell the story. He has been selling real estate since 2007, the onset of The Great Recession.

We talk about how home values fell during the recession, though not as much as you may think. The NY Metro area fared better than most of the country since New York is

We're back after our month hiatus!! Since Anthony's health has improved enough to return to work, we're making up for lost time with January's market report rundown before returning shortly to cover the market's performance in February.

January 2019 saw a huge drop in sales over the prior year, falling to just 307 homes sold. Though the price increased a few thousand since the prior month, it is up just $10,000 over the prior year. This shows that homes are holding their value and not falling in price necessarily, but not rising like they were in prior years. The last January year-over-year comparison saw a striking $60,000 increase in average sale price.

With sales down so much and inventory also back up at 1,868, all indicators but

Are you somewhat mystified by looking at a CMA, aka Comparable Market Analysis? Since this packet can be lengthy and contain lots of information (and can be a bit tedious) we wanted to sit down and go over it with our viewers.

So what is a CMA? Essentially, it is a list of properties comparable to yours- we usually call these "comps." Comps should be located in the same neighborhood and share many of the same traits- square footage, number of bedrooms, garage or basement, and property condition to name a few. Comps should also be sold fairly recently since the real estate market is always changing. Your own home's price today is probably not the same as it was 4 years ago, so you should not be looking at comps that old in a CMA.

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?
