30 Contracts Signed
With the July 4th weekend approaching, here’s a firecracker of a stat: In the first 6 months of this year, 751 properties had contracts signed at $4 million and above, 49 more than over the same period in 2014. The volume was $6,100,911,973, up from last year’s $5,754,343,800. Condos out sold co-ops 484 to 184; and 79 houses were in the mix, an 8% increase in the number of houses sold over the same period last year. Oh, by the way, 4 condops were also sold.
Of the 30 contracts signed last week at $4 million and above, the No. 1 slot goes to 42 West 71st Street, asking $19.950 million, reduced from $23.5 million when it went on the market in October 2013.
