NO FEE APARTMENTS IN NYC MORE EXPENSIVE?
Category:nyc no fee apartments
 

I had a client yesterday viewing various apartments for rent on the Upper East Side.  She really needed an apartment and her move in date of April 1st was fast approaching. After running around on her own to find a no fee apartment for rent she ran out of options and was running out of time.  She finally decided to try the services of a broker.  I was one of a number of brokers she contacted.

We started out looking at the few no fee apartments that we had available.  Then she considered units that required a broker fee, from one month rent to 15% of the yearly rent in co-broke options. She quickly learned of the vast variance in prices of apartments as we considered apartments offered by major landlords,  management companies and individual condo owners. It quickly became clear to my client that the rental market in Manhattan  is anything but an efficient market. Hence the need for an experienced guide.

At one point we had seen two almost identical one bedroom apartments. One was a No Fee apartment (OP–Owner Paid commission) for $2500, while another was $2300 but required a fee (one month broker commission).  She asked why there was such a price difference. I explained that one of the reasons was that the landlord who paid the OP to the brokers simply loaded the rental price to cover for the broker commission.  The extra $200 per month just about  covered the brokers commission of $2500.

The numbers work out the same in either case.  I then explained that although it might feel good renting the No Fee apartment, it’s not advantageous for the renter who plans to stay more than a year. In the case of the No Fee apartment which has the broker commission loaded into the rent, the tenant will pay that increase again in the second year when they renew their lease, even if there is no rent increase.

She took neither apartment in the end. We are still looking.

NEW YORK CITY NO FEE APARTMENTS DISAPPEARING
Category:nyc no fee apartments
 

Now that the economy is roaring again (if you believe what you hear in the press) some landlords in New York are beginning to feel it unnecessary to offer broker commissions. In addition, spring time is traditionally the beginning of the “hot” rental season as demand usually picks up at this time. This means there will be fewer and fewer “no fee” apartments available from brokers.

As demand does pick up and the best apartments go fast the consumer might feel more justified in paying a reasonable broker fee. As the market tilts in the favor of the landlords, they do not feel they have to pay for the brokers’ service of finding a tenant. Conversely, it is the tenant who now needs to “hire” a broker.

Of course there is a lot of information out there and a prospective tenant can find a no fee apartment on their own. They will not have access to all the potential listings available and it will take a lot of time and effort to do a thorough search. I like to compare the choice to eating a steak.

If you want to eat a steak, you don’t have to go to Del Frisco’s and pay the the big bucks. You can go to the super market and buy the ingredients, go home and cook it all up, serve yourself and clean up afterward. It is not exactly the same experience but the result is the same. You eat a steak. It might not be the same quality steak and the experience isn’t quite the same however in each case you have been fed.

In either case it is a matter of quality, service and convenience.

Looking to Rent? Good Luck Says the New York Times. Here’s How to Better the Odds
Category:The Broker's Perspective
 

By Karla Harby

Did you see the article in Sunday’s New York Times? The title in the print edition is “Looking to Rent? Good Luck,” and the title in the online edition is “The Lease is Up, and Now, So Is the Rent” (October 16, 2011, Real Estate Section).

The article is based on New York City data showing that rents are now—Yikes!—surpassing the historic highs of 2007. (The data are mostly from a large brokerage firm, as truly independent data on this do not seem to exist.)

My experience with clients supports this city-wide data. Every day I talk with people whose landlord is raising their rent at lease renewal, or they can’t find anything they can afford in their neighborhood of choice.

Or both.

Yet, other renters report that their rent is the same as last lease, and their building has vacancies.

So, what’s going on?

The simple answer is that your personal experience depends on your neighborhood, your rent range, and the desirability of your particular building.

As always, it’s supply and demand.

Demand is up because many would-be buyers are instead renting, as the Times reports. Also, New York CIty is still creating jobs, and I frequently speak with people who are relocating to here.

A problem in some cases is the landlord has improved the building/apartents so much that the rent is driven beyond what people will readily pay on a square-foot/location basis. In other words, the landlord over-improved the place, and now the profitable rent is too high compared to other apartments.

Supply is being bolstered by a few factors, too. Condo developments that couldn’t be sold are instead being rented, and individual owners who own one apartment in a condo, or in a co-op, who would prefer to sell are instead renting.

Still in many neighborhoods, the supply of one bedroom apartments is very, very low compared to the number of people who want to live there.

Hoods with better rents/terms include the financial district, the upper east side, parts of midtown and the upper reaches of the upper west side. Hoods that have minimal apts available include gramercy, the village west and central, williamsburg and park slope.

What can you do? Three things:

First, If you want the best deal possible, the best thing you can do for yourself is be willing to change neighborhoods. You might do better in a larger apartment with a room mate, if that works for you.

Second, historically this is a seasonable business, so if you wait another month or two or three, you might get a better deal. However, the down side of this strategy is that you might find fewer apartments to choose from, and you might be forced to rent something you’re unhappy with just to have a place to live.

Third–you knew I was going to say this–choose a broker to help you. You can still look for apartments on your own all you want, and if you find one yourself, fantastic! But in the meantime you will have a professional working for you also, thereby increasing your options and your odds of finding a great new home.

Here’s the link for the NY Times article:

PRICE IS RIGHT FOR FOREIGNERS
Category:Focus on The Metropolis
 

Despite chaos in financial markets and tight credit, sales of Manhattan apartments are way up — thanks to foreigners.

There were 3,106 sales in the third quarter of the year — a solid increase of 17.2 percent over the previous three months.

That’s also up 16.7 percent compared with the third quarter of 2010, according to Prudential Douglas Elliman’s report. It was the highest level of sales in four years.

“A lot of that has to do with the weak dollar and foreign buyers buying condominiums,” said Jonathan Miller, of Miller Samuel Inc., who prepared the report.

Condo sales were up 33.4 percent, to 1,317 units sold, compared with the same period last year, according to the report.

Market experts agree that in a time of financial uncertainty — with even gold dipping in price — Manhattan real estate looks solid and attractive to Europeans, Asians and South Americans.

“We have that perception of being a safe haven,” said Gregory Heym, chief economist of Halstead Property.

“The dollar is cheap. They can get more for their money. And there’s a great deal of confidence in New York,” said Hall Willkie, president of Brown Stevens Harris Residential Sales.

Manhattan loft sales were also up in the last three months — 38.9 percent compared with last year.

The number of co-op sales, on the other hand, was virtually unchanged — 1,317 in the last quarter compared with 1,320 in the same period last year.

Prices, meanwhile, have barely budged. For example, the average Manhattan condo sale price was $1,756,744, an increase of 2 percent from a year ago.

The average co-op price was $1,180,442, also up 2 percent, according to Brown Harris Stevens. And prices for one-bedroom apartments showed little change regardless of neighborhood.

“This summer, with the debt ceiling debate, the hurricane, the S&P downgrade, and the roiling of financial markets across the globe, housing prices in Manhattan were relatively stable,” said Miller.

Foreign Real Estate Investors Coming Ashore in U.S.
Category:Real Estate Investment Opportunities in NYC
 

Foreign real estate investors coming ashore in U.S.
Sovereign wealth funds, among others want a share in expected U.S. rebound

Read more: http://www.pionline.com/article/20110404/PRINTSUB/304049978#ixzz1X5n7eJ3H

Tie-ups between real estate investment managers and foreign investors are expected to grow rapidly this year, as investors around the world seek to get in on an anticipated U.S. commercial real estate market recovery.

Foreign investment in U.S. real estate more than doubled last year, to $13.37 billion (from $5.6 billion in 2009), according to a real estate investment firm Jones Lang LaSalle. And this trend is expected to continue through 2011 at least.

Foreign investors — including a larger number of sovereign wealth funds than have been seen in a couple of years — are not only committing capital to commingled funds and separate accounts, but also are increasing joint ventures with U.S.-based real estate investment managers and investing in U.S. real estate investment trusts, industry insiders say.

For example, roughly half the new investors in U.S. real estate investment firm Shorenstein Properties LLC’s recently closed Shorenstein Realty Investors Ten were foreign, a greater percentage than in prior funds, sources familiar with the matter said.

And within the past month, TIAA-CREF and AREA Property Partners, formerly Apollo Real Estate Advisors, linked up with foreign institutions to invest in U.S. real estate.

The number of planned U.S. real estate deals by foreign investors so far this year already surpassed the number of completed deals in 2010. According to a February survey by the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate, more than 70% of foreign investor respondents plan to invest more capital in U.S. real estate than they did in 2010. What’s more, respondents ranked the U.S. as the country where they expect the most increase in the value of their property investments in 2011.

The U.S. accounted for 36.3% of the global commercial real estate market — significantly larger than the next nearest country, Japan, which accounted for 12.5% at year-end 2009, said Alex Peace, spokesman for the Investment Property Databank, London, in an e-mail.

TIAA-CREF executives see interest in U.S. investments coming from sovereign wealth funds mostly from Hong Kong and other parts of Asia, as well as Scandinavia and other parts of Europe, plus the Middle East, said Phil McAndrews, New York-based TIAA-CREF managing director and head of real estate portfolio management.

In March, TIAA-CREF and the A$71 billion ($71.7 billion) Future Fund, Melbourne, Australia, formed a joint venture to co-invest in real estate in the U.S., said John Panagakis, managing director and head of asset management business development at TIAA-CREF. As part of the deal, Future Fund is buying a 50% interest in 685 Third Ave., New York, a building TIAA-CREF bought last year for $190 million. TIAA-CREF would not reveal the size of Future Fund’s commitment to the joint venture.

“The driver (for foreign investors) is U.S. real estate marketplace fundamentals. Supply and rental levels are improving,” Mr. McAndrews said. “As foreign investors examine the U.S. real estate market as an investment opportunity, they see a marketplace that has an upside. … Most sectors are poised for strong recovery.”

Most people think the U.S. real estate market is coming off the bottom and values are rising, said Max Swango, managing director in the Dallas office of Invesco Real Estate. Foreign institutions believe the U.S. is in the early stage of a recovery, and they want to get in on it, he said.

There is no question that interest from Europe and Asia in U.S. real estate has increased, Mr. Swango said. “We’ve seen allocations into our funds and we are talking to (foreign investors) for potential separate accounts.”

Invesco Real Estate executives have also been in talks with foreign investors about co-investing with U.S. investors and joint ventures with real estate operating companies.

In March, AREA Property Partners sold a 35% minority non-controlling stake in its firm to National Australia Bank Ltd., Melbourne, to get access to institutional investors in Australia and New Zealand, said Lee Neibart, AREA’s global CEO.

“Demand is way up from three years ago,” Mr. Neibart said. “Certainly, property values have increased dramatically. More institutional investors are seeking stable core properties so values are moving up.”

There is also a greater ability to finance investments, Mr. Neibart added.

REITs also are seeing capital flowing from foreign institutions.

“We like the diversification of clients. It helps capital move around the globe,” said Michael Torres, CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Adelante Capital Management LLC, a REIT manager with more than $2.5 billion under management. He anticipates a “natural flow” of capital from foreign institutions, including many that already participate in the U.S. REIT market.

“Increases come sporadically,” Mr. Torres said. “We’ve had (investments from) mineral-rich economies like the sovereign wealth funds of Norway and Australia … and recently more of the Chinese institutions.”
Prospects aren’t good

But the prospects for direct investment by foreign institutions aren’t as good. Over the past decade, direct foreign investment in domestic real estate typically only accounted for 10% of total transactions annually, noted Dan Fasulo, managing director of New York-based real estate research firm Real Capital Analytics Inc. Most investments by foreign institutions are made through REITs and commingled funds, which are not tracked, he said.

U.S. regulations are the reason for the low level of direct investment by foreign institutions, Mr. Fasulo said. But Adelante’s Mr. Torres said judging from conversations he has had with federal officials, he expects those restrictions will ease.

Still, in the first three months of 2011, foreign investors purchased some $2.5 billion in U.S. real estate, with most buyers coming from Canada and the U.K. By comparison, foreign investors accounted for $9.6 billion in U.S. purchases in all of 2010, with Canadian and European investors investing the most, according to data supplied by Real Capital Analytics.

“The U.S. is a hot market,” said Steve Collins, Washington-based managing director for Jones Lang LaSalle’s international capital group. “There are new sources of capital trying to get seats at the table,” which includes sovereign wealth funds and pension funds from the Asia-Pacific region.

Last year, most foreign buyers were investing in core real estate in gateway cities such as New York and Washington, Mr. Collins said.

This year many of the buyers are looking in Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. By the end of the year, he thinks they will be shopping for real estate in Seattle, San Diego, Atlanta and Houston.

The current surge of foreign investors attracted to U.S. real estate is not like other investment waves into real estate, said TIAA-CREF’s Mr. McAndrews. In the past, it was investors from individual countries like Japan and Germany that came separately, he said.

Now, “there’s more diversified interest. A level of diversity (of investors) brings out the best in any asset class.”

Foreign Investors Targeting New York City Real Estate
Category:Real Estate Investment Opportunities in NYC
 

According to a global survey, New York is ranked the No. 1 city for foreign real estate investors in 2011, reports Crain’s New York.

The Big Apple beat out London and Washington to become the favorite with investors for the upcoming year (moving up from the third place spot in 2010), according to the annual survey of the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate.

What does this mean? At least a few people have hope for the 2011 economic landscape.

No Fee Apartments In NYC – The Truth About No-Fee
Category:What is a No Fee Apartment?
 

Fee vs. No Fee Apartments In NYC

It’s not always a better deal!

There is no such thing as a free lunch, especially in New York City!

A No Fee rental seems like an amazing deal! Who doesn’t want something for free? But is it REALLY FREE?

If you do your research you will see the truth. The No Fee concept is simply a marketing strategy.

In Manhattan we always see the pizza shops offering a free soda with two slices of pizza. But we all know that those two slices of pizza are going to be more expensive simply to cover the cost of that soda you are getting ‘for free’. The same concept applies to many purchases we make every day. Apartments are no different.

I implore you to compare the annual cost of a 2 bedroom luxury apartment in any neighborhood in New York City. Just for kicks and giggles let’s pick Chelsea.


A No Fee Luxury two bedroom rental in Chelsea rents for about – $6,900 (or more!)

That comes out to $82,800 in rental expenses for the year. Over a two year lease you are paying $165,600 (not including the usual 7-10% rent increase).

A Broker Fee Luxury two bedroom rental rents for about – $6,000 (and up)

The broker fee in this market is the standard 15% = $10,800 plus the annual rent expenses equals…. you got it! $82,800! The EXACT same amount of money is being spent either way!

If you sign a two year lease however the total for two years comes out to only $154,800. That comes out to a $10,800 savings! Notice – that is the exact amount you just spent on the broker fee!

We at Metropolis Real Estate of Manhattan have access to many No Fee listings, keep in mind however, those listings are not the best deal in town. Our agents will show you all of your options – fee or no fee. Trust that your agent knows what is best and is working their hardest for you.

Now that you know the facts, don’t narrow your search options according to the fee. It all comes out in the wash one way or another. Choose the best apartment for your needs, wants, and lifestyle. The Fee/No Fee issue is really a non-issue for the educated renter.

55 Wall Street–The Cipriani Residences
Category:Focus on The Metropolis
 

55 Wall Street 1
55 Wall Street
National City Bank Building
U.S. National Register of Historic Places
U.S. National Historic Landmark
NYC Landmark
Location: 55 Wall Street, Manhattan, New York City, New York[1]
Built: 1836-1841, additions 1907-1910[2]
Architect: Isaiah Rogers (original), McKim, Mead & White (additions)
Architectural style(s): Greek Revival (original), Roman (additions)
Added to NRHP: June 2, 1978
Designated NHL: June 2, 1978 [3]
Designated NYCL: December 21, 1965
NRHP Reference#: 78001875[4]
55 Wall Street in Manhattan, New York City is a former bank building that today houses luxury apartments.
It was originally the Merchants Exchange, a Greek Revival building built between 1836 and 1841. Between 1862
and around 1907, the U.S. Customs Service used the building before moving into the U.S. Customhouse on Bowling
Green.[1] In 1907, the National City Bank[5] hired Charles F. McKim[2] to increase the building to 7 floors and
redesign the interior. The National City Bank (now Citibank) was closely tied to the Wall Street Crash of 1929.
Architecture
The building was designed by Boston architect Isaiah Rogers in classical style and built in 1836-1842. The facade of
the original four-story, Greek revival style featured sixteen massive Ionic columns, each a single block of Quincy
Granite.
In 1899, First National Bank, which subsequently became Citibank, commissioned architects McKim, Mead &
White to remodel the building for use as their headquarters. The architects added four stories to the building and
superimposed a second colonnade of Corinthian columns above the original facade. They also redesigned the interior
into an immense banking hall featuring a sixty-foot-high central dome and offices at each corner. Monumental
Corinthian columns support an elegant entablature that circles the space. The room features elegant gray marble
floors and walls, a coffered ceiling, and delicate mezzanine railings.
The exterior of this building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1965. The building was named a
National Historic Landmark in 1978.[3] [6] [7]
55 Wall Street 2
In 1998 it was completely rebuilt as The Regent Wall Street Hotel. After the terrorist attacks on the World Trade
Center on September 11, 2001, 55 Wall Street served as a relief center for workers and area residents. The hotel
closed in 2003 due to lack of business after the 9/11 attacks. It has recently been renovated again and was converted
to condos by the Cipriani S.A. empire of restaurants and ballrooms. The main banking hall “now serves as one of the
most elegant ballrooms in the world”[8] . It was the location for the finale of Jonathan Demme’s remake of The
Manchurian Candidate and has been called a “facility unequaled in America”[9]
The Designated Landmark of New York City plaque was installed by the New York Landmarks Preservation
Foundation in 2002.
