  • RESIDENTIAL RENTAL MARKET REPORTFourth Quarter 2009 / Year-End ReviewOwned and operated by NRT LLC.
  • Citi Habitats Residential Rental Market Report 4th Quarter / Year-End Review 2009 Our results for December 2009 continued the pattern seen during the prior eight months of 2009 of minor price adjustments providing us with further evidence that the Manhattan rental market had found its footing in terms of pricing. Additionally, vacancy rates which historically increase during this period actually decreased slightly over November’s rate, indicating positive absorption in the market. Results for the 4th Quarter 2009 vs. 3rd Quarter 2009 also were atypical of past market trends. Because the 3rd Quarter figures include peak season rental tallies, adjustments in rental prices and vacancy rates in the 4th Quarter are usually notable. However, during this 4th Quarter we saw only nominal decreases in both rental pricing and a marginal increase in the vacancy rate. As we expected, the 2009 rental market underwent price corrections. Prices on average are approximately 7% lower than in 2008 and this adjustment does not include landlord incentives such as free rent which, when factored in, would make price reductions greater. Vacancy rates are marginally higher in 2009 (but continue to remain below 2%) from 2008 totals. However, over 3,700 new rental units came to market during 2009 (south of 96th Street) and we saw incredible absorption with respect to this new product. During this period, CHMG, Citi Habitats’ development marketing group, rented Silver Towers at a very brisk pace, renting over 40% of market-rate units during its launch phase as well as the lease-up or completion of Dwell95, The Westbourne, Greystone, and The Hub. In 2009 Citi Habitats reached the incredible milestone of renting over 12,900 apartments in one year, an increase of 23% as compared with the 2008 total of more than 10,500 rental transactions. Many factors came into play during the year that contributed to achieving this incredible feat. 2009 was a great year to be a renter; because of the combination of lower prices and landlord incentives, amazing rental opportunities existed in the marketplace. Some, previously priced out of the Manhattan market and living in an outer borough were now able to afford an apartment in Manhattan. Many upgraded and moved to a larger space or a neighborhood closer to their job for less or equal rent. In any event, these indicators are a clear testament to the health and vitality of the rental market and the long-term prospects of our great City. Please note the following with respect to this report: 1. The statistics in this report were compiled using solely Citi Habitats closed transactions during the stated period(s). 2. Average rents cited in this report are, for the majority, gross rents, not net effective rents, and do not include landlord incentives, unless the face rent reported on the lease was the net-effective amount. Factoring in rent concessions, average rents may be between 5% to 7% lower. However, not every rental transaction contains a landlord concession. We hope you will find this study informative and we welcome any questions you may have regarding it. Sincerely, Gary Malin, President We find more New Yorkers homes than any other brokerage firm. total 4Q rental transactions total 2009 Rental Transactions5000 15,000 12,900+4000 12,500 10,500+3000 2600+ 10,0002000 1800+ 7,5001000 5,000 0 0 4Q 2008 4Q 2009 2008 2009Overall transactional volume for Citi Habitats for the 4Q 2009 Overall transactional volume for Citi Habitats for 2009 waswas more than 2,600 transactions, representing an increase more than 12,900 transactions, representing an increase ofof more than 30% in the total number of transactions from 23% in the total number of transactions from the 2008 totalthe 4Q 2008 total of more than 1,800 transactions. of more than 10,500 transactions.
