More 4Q 2009 Report Comparisons

Posted Saturday, January 23 2010

There were a couple more 4Q 2009 sales reports released this week. ResidentialNYC, a subsidiary of the Real Estate Board of New York, published median sales prices for all 5 boroughs and Elliman (via Miller Samuel) released it's Brooklyn and Queens fourth quarter sales reports. I'll dig into that one a little later to compare pricing by property type, but here's how Department of Numbers' New York median sales price data compares at the broadest level to some more industry data.

Q4 2009 Median Sales Prices by Borough (All Property Types)

Reported by Manhattan Brooklyn Queens Bronx Staten Island
Department of Numbers $775,000 $450,000 $344,630 $335,000 $374,000
ResidentialNYC $768,000 $450,000 $351,000 $350,000 $380,000
Elliman $810,000 $447,174 $350,000

Quite a favorable comparison, huh? Since I only publish monthly and rolling annual sales prices presently, you won't actually find quarterly numbers anywhere on the site right now; I had to calculate these manually. I will be adding rolling quarterly views next month, however, to make these kinds of comparisons easier in the future.

On a technical note, all content pages on the site now have Atom feeds associated with them. Now you can subscribe to individual stats like Park Slope median property prices or the California unemployment rate and receive that data alone in your feed reader.
