Less than a month after the first buyer at 432 Park Avenue closed on an $18.1 million pad in 2015, the unit hit the rental market for $60,000 a month. It reappeared this past January as one of the tower’s first resale listings — priced at $17.499 million, or a roughly $618,000 loss.
In the last six months, 13 resales at Macklowe Properties and CIM Group s supertall have 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛 quietly hit the market, nearly triple the number of sponsor units available, according to listing data from StreetEasy.
Brokers said that although the luxury market has cooled — meaning sellers may not get top dollar — rising inventory on Billionaires Row and lingering uncertainty about the market has made some skittish investors eager to cash out before competition heats up.
“If you look at that particular subset of uber-luxury real estate near the park, you have an onslaught of new development inventory that is coming down the pike,” said Douglas Elliman’s Michael Graves. “If you are an owner seeking to move that asset, now is going to be your best moment to do it.”
As of mid-March, 432 Park had 10 resale listings on the market — more than any other new development condo building, according to CityRealty. (The Baccarat Hotel Residences was a close second with nine resales, followed by 10 Madison Square West with eight.)
Current resale listings at 432 Park range in price from $5.95 million for a one-bedroom to $68.5 million for a combination of two units on the 71st floor. On average, the resales are priced 22 percent higher than the first sale price.
“Everyone’s got their own story,” said Brown Harris Stevens’ Elese Reid, who is marketing the 71st-floor combi上海夜网论坛 nation. Her client paid $59.8 million total for the two units in 2016, records show.
The first batch of resales at any new development can be a boon for early buyers if they can capitalize on momentum at the building.
Some early buyers at 15 Central Park West doubled their investments. One57’s first resale handed the seller (who paid $30.55 million in 2014) a nearly $4 million profit.
Walker Tower’s first resale generated a $3 million profit for the seller, Burt Freiman, who paid $5 million in 2013 and reportedly never set foot in the building. He re-sold the pad for $7.775 million.
But new development sales — particularly sales of ultra-luxury pads — have dipped since 2015 amid a flo上海千花网论坛 od of competing inventory. The median price during the fourth quarter was $2.7 million, down 7 percent year-over-year, according to Miller Samuel. The number of sales during the quarter was 387, down nearly 30 percent from 2015. And some resales at competing buildings like One57 have traded at a loss since the market began to slow.
