33 townhouse Open houses today in Harlem

In the Hamilton Heights, Central Harlem, market there are 33 open houses set for today. As listings linger on the market and sellers start to come to grips with the idea that the market is in favor of the buyers, some listings sit on the market. As a result, the amount of open houses is at a staggering number. However, the market under $2.5 million is still low on inventory as only 4 of the 33 open houses are for that price point and only 1 open house for a listing under $2 million. The inventory under $2 million has not budged at all in the last several months and the choices are limited.

Harlem townhouse market price adjustments

Just two months ago, the Harlem townhouse market report showed 17 listings at $4 million and above. Now as of September 30th, that number has halved to 8. Those listings did not sell as only 4 listings over $4 million have sold this year in the Harlem,Hamilton Heights townhouse market. Either they reduced the price and joined the under $4 million club or they gave up.

In the last 2 months, the number of listings available from $3 million to $3.99 million, has increased from 26 to 31. The number of listings from $2 million to $2.99 million has increased in the same time period from 33 to 40. These numbers tend to support the trend that price reductions are forcing sellers to readjust their expectations.

However, the market segment least affected is the below $2 million which currently has 5 available listings while the May Harlem townhouse report showed 7. This suggests that inventory is still very tight in the <$2 million/starter townhouse range.

Only 4 Harlem townhouses sold this year for $4 million or more

So far this year, only 4 Harlem townhouses have sold for $4 million or more. One of the four townhouses broke a record in when it sold in February of this year for $5.1 million. That was a renovated home at 72 Hamilton terrace. 

72 Hamilton terrace sold for a record breaking $5.1 million in early 2018.

Beyond that, there have been 3 other townhouses that sold for $4 million and up. 251 West 138th street, a 20 foot wide townhouse on Striver’s Row sold also sold in February for $4 million. In April and May, the other two townhouses- 139 W 120th street and 455 Lenox ave, sold.

However, according to the July Harlem townhouse report, there are 17 buildings listed at $4 million and up. With the average per month sale rate for this price point being less than 1 per month, the number of months it will take to sell the existing inventory is 30 months which means that the $4 million and up price range in Harlem is oversupplied and in a buyer’s market.

Harlem townhouse shortage below $2 millon

According to the July Harlem townhouse report, not one townhouse below $2 million was listed for sale. In July,  2 of the 4 sales recorded in the Central Harlem,Hamilton Heights townhouse market, were below $2 million. That brings the number of available properties below $2mm to only 6 out of over 80 listings. I am seeing a little bit of a tug of war as sellers priced at around $2.3-2.6 now begin to see the market may not sustain these prices for their Harlem properties  and probably not for 4 family homes above 125th street.
