This two bedroom, six bath, 50 Central Park South #27, in Midtown East saw a $5,000,000, or 17 percent, price drop to $24,500,000.


Sellers continued to slash their listing prices last month, mostly in Manhattan. Neighborhoods here topped RealtyHop's latest lists of areas with the most price cuts, continuing a trend of the last several months, with one exception: A Bronx co-op did make the list of the highest percentage price drops. 

In September, the Upper East Side-Carnegie Hill neighborhood had the most price drops citywide with a total of 188. The neighborhood's biggest price drop in dollars was $2,100,000, or 12 percent, for a five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath condo. Turtle Bay was the neighborhood with the second most price cuts with a total of 180.

In its monthly price drop report, RealtyHop identifies neighborhoods with the highest total number of price cuts. It also highlights areas with the biggest percentage drop in median price, and the biggest median dollar price drop.

The top five addresses with the biggest dollar price drops were all in Manhattan. A two-bedroom, six-bath condo in Midtown East had the highest dollar price drop, with $5,000,000, or 17 percent, slashed from the listing price. The rest of the price drops ranged from $3,000,000 to $1,600,000.

Below is a look at the listings with deepest price chops identified in RealtyHop's report.
