What to expect when you buy a $30,000 house in the Big Apple?
New York’s biggest city is going to have a major impact on the cost of buying a home next year.
A new report released Wednesday from real estate firm Equilar says that the median price of a house in New York City is set to increase by nearly 30% in 2021.
The report notes that the number of buyers seeking homes has jumped from 3,865,923 in 2020 to 3,972,746 in 2021, according to a city-wide analysis released earlier this year.
In the next five years, the median house price in New Yorkers will be $1.7 million.
The city is currently looking at a projected $1 billion increase in the median household income by 2025, and a projected 7.7% increase in median home sales.
According to the report, many of these factors are already affecting home prices in the city, with the median sale price for a new home in the New York metro area reaching $1,737,937 in 2021 and the median sales price at $2.8 million in 2021 in comparison to the $2 million median in 2020.
The average cost of a new apartment in the area is expected to increase slightly to $1 million in 2019, and the average sale price of homes in the region is projected to rise from $3.6 million to $3 million.
With this kind of growth, there are some potential problems for buyers in the future, as the city is expected by Equilar to see some of its biggest price increases in the next decade.
For example, the average price of new condos will increase by more than 50%, while the average sales price will increase nearly 80%.
Equilar estimates that between 2020 and 2025, the cost per square foot of new condo construction in the borough will increase 8.7%.
The company also expects to see an increase in both new and renovated homes.
For the average detached home in New New York, the price will jump to $2,066,839 in 2021 from $1 to $5,091,849 in 2020, and prices for detached homes will rise an average of 17.3%.
While the average cost for a one-bedroom apartment will increase 6.9%, and prices in one-bedrooms will increase an average 5.7%, the price of condos will also increase 9.9%.
Equivalence, a real estate analytics firm, also said that the average home price in the Bronx will rise by nearly 9%, with prices in other boroughs such as the Queens, Staten Island and Brooklyn increasing 8.4%, and those in the Staten Island, Brooklyn, Staten and Queens boroughs increasing 13.3%, and 15.3% respectively.
The median home price of Manhattan is expected rise to $739,400 in 2021 with prices up an average 18.6% from the median in the same time period last year.
According the report , the average median home sale price in Manhattan is set for $1 Million, while the median condo sale price is set at $1 Billion.
The market has been hard hit by the Great Recession, and some people have lost jobs.
Equilar’s report also predicts that the city’s median household net worth will drop by $9,000, which will affect homeownership in the suburbs and the cost to build new homes.
With the average homeowner net worth dropping by $1 and the amount of housing for sale down by more in the past five years than in the previous five years combined, the impact on homeownership is expected as well, according the report.
The affordability of New York is a big issue for many buyers, especially in New Jersey, according Equilar.
The company predicts that between 2019 and 2025 the average value of homes that are on the market will drop from $6,922,735 to $6.5 million, which equates to an annualized price decline of 10.9% in the state.
The number of homes on the National Register of Historic Places will drop to 1,200, and more than half of all homes are expected to be demolished in the last five years.
Equivalance estimates that the cost will increase of 6.5% in 2020 and 6.2% in 2025 for the average owner-occupied home and the number that will be sold.
