TOWN Residential Moves Fast to Strengthen its Presence in New York

In spite of its high price, the New York real estate offers investors numerous opportunities to excel. Some of the hottest markets in the city for commercial and residential real estate are in Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Hudson County. According to most analysts, the secret to successful investing in this market is setting a good plan of action and acting fast. One of the key players in the city’s real estate market is Town Residential. According to an article published by Crain’s New York in September 2013, the real estate brokerage firm established in 2010 unveiled its 10th outpost in the West Village neighborhood of the Meat Packing District. The move was informed by the need to serve the communities that dot the Hudson Yards all the way to Tribeca.


The new establishment leased from Thor Equities covers 7,100sq ft and is based on the second floor. The 15-year deal inked by Town Residential will give the company ample interior and outdoor space to serve clients diligently. The company founder Mr. Andrew Heiberger noted that the strategic location of the firm near the Story-High Park will position the company as a brokerage that specializes in high-end sales. Another company that showed a willingness to join the real estate outfit in the new premises is the boutique brokerage firm called Thomas & Ingram. Prior to moving to the new 446 W. 14th Street premises, the firm had unveiled other high profile offices at 530 LaGuardia Place in Greenwich Village and 33 Irving Place east of Union Street.

Luxury Condo Market Slowing in NYC

The NYC luxury real estate market is the strongest and most vibrant real estate market in the country. Average prices in Manhattan are higher than anywhere else with a $1.1 million median price. However, the market is a little overbuilt and is starting to slow. Sales grew by only 8% in the first quarter while many new units are being held off the market.

Meanwhile, although the economy keeps expanding slowly and steadily there are few American buyers for the super luxury condos. The stock market is not booming and the valuations for new technology companies are rising more slowly than in the past. The drop in oil prices has reduced the income of domestic energy companies. Lastly, banks, hedge funds and other financial firms are still producing plenty of wealthy executives but perhaps not at the same rate as in the past.

TOWN Residential real estate brokers is the leader in marketing luxury condos. The team’s agents have connections around the world to organize the most efficient sales process to get the best price for both buyer and seller.
