Queens and Brooklyn have some of the fastest residential price growth in the U.S. as high-quality new developments over the past few years have pushed prices all the way up while buyers hunt for value in outer boroughs. Both boroughs logged record average prices in the third quarter: $1.052 million in Brooklyn and $635,281 in Queens, according to Douglas Elliman. Luxury prices have started to plateau, even though the number of high-end home sales remains strong.
While both markets are doing well this is only fueling the affordability crisis in the city. This level of growth, while good for homeowners, is clearly unsustainable.
