The price of a Manhattan apartment just hit a new record.
The average sales price for apartments in New York City jumped 15 percent in the first quarter to $1,773,523, according to a report from Douglas Elliman Real Estate and Miller Samuel. The average price per square foot jumped 16 percent to $1,363.
The report shows the continued strength of the high-end real estate market—especially among global buyers in the world's top wealth centers. But it also shows that the building boom in trophy penthouses and ultraluxe condos may be overheating.
