These days, buying a fully updated New York City apartment is more appealing to many buyers because of the challenges of doing a renovation now. But be prepared for some sticker shock: You may be paying more for an updated place that you would have prior to the pandemic.
That’s because sellers are feeling emboldened to ask for more. Right now, most co-op and condo boards are limiting the number of projects happening in a building. The cost of materials is higher and shipping times are longer—making even smaller projects tougher to do. The median price for a renovated apartment in Manhattan increased from $1,225,000 to almost $1,375,000 in the first quarter, according to a recent UrbanDigs report.
But some sellers have cut prices on renovated apartments. Brick found these five with recent price cuts in Tribeca, Yorkville, West Village, Williamsburg, and Lincoln Square.
