Likely new real estate rent law shocks New York developers

New rent bills have real estate magnates in shock. Many New York real estate investors aren't exactly enamoured with new bills that would strengthen tenants' rights and protections. Developers of some of the most well-known and easily identified buildings in New York City -- like the World Trade Center and 3 Times Square -- have made efforts to have the bills blocked. They have asked Gov. Andrew Cuomo to help them, but Cuomo said developers need to enlist the aid of their legislators to help thwart the bills.

Certain areas in New York hot for real estate, others not so much

There are certain parts of the Big Apple where the housing market is hot and areas where it's relatively tepid. There are many factors that affect the New York real estate market, one of which includes inventory, and there seems to be a shortage of properties on the market right now that are in a mid-price range, while a glut of higher-end properties continue to remain unsold. A new federal tax law capping tax deductions locally have also been negatively affecting the market, according to experts.

Real estate, technology go hand-in-hand in New York

The 21st century and The Big Apple seem to have come head to head when it comes to real estate. Technology has been given a new lease on the way real estate deals take place and that has been especially apparent in New York City -- the real estate hub of the world. A venture capital fund outfit has opened up new digs in Manhattan and PropTech Place aims to be the center of all things tech-related to property with a view to helping the city continue to break record growth in terms of real estate.

Luxury real estate purchases slow down in New York City

The luxury market in the Big Apple has slowed to a worm's pace. High-end real estate in New York City seems to be sitting on the market longer these days, according to a prominent developer and architect who says nothing is selling lately. Supply is definitely outweighing demand when it comes to multi-million dollar properties high in the sky.

New York City real estate prices take a nose dive

A report commissioned by a realty company apparently shows a pretty hefty drop in prices in the Big Apple. In the last three years or so, the real estate market in New York City has seen between a 10 and 20 percent plummet in prices, which translates into a buyer's market. It doesn't look as though that's going to change anytime soon, either. 

Amazon deal creates tech space real estate boom in New York

The Big Apple is bracing itself for a flood of business thanks to the latest Amazon decision. New York is expecting the real estate market to be flooded with deals now that Amazon has announced that Queens will be home to its new headquarters, bringing the city to the forefront as a major technological hub. The technology industry, which is seeing steady job growth, is catching up to financial services in the city as being the number one employer.

Real estate: 2nd Amazon store opening in New York

Amazon is bringing its first Go store to the Big Apple. Located in a prime area of real estate just across from the World Trade Center, Amazon's second store in New York City will open its doors soon.

When to buy real estate in New York hinges on personal situations

There are criteria that may make certain times of year more favorable for buying a home, but the bottom line is a purchaser must be personally prepared for what likely may be the largest financial purchase of his or her life. There may be certain times of year when buying real estate in New York may be more advantageous. Although the summer is when many sellers list their homes, it might not be the best time to buy.
