Joshua Just’s Real Estate Roundup: What’s Up And Coming in NYC?

Every week I’ll comment on a popular real estate article in the news. This week, I look into what the future of Big Apple real estate.

Real estate hunting in New York is a competitive sport. When you live in the most densely populated area in the country, it can feel like no space is left untapped, every block has hit capacity, and every deal has four or five potential buyers lining up for the sale. This high-demand, low-supply market has actually tapered off somewhat in recent years, due to the housing crises, but there are still “runs” on haute neighborhood that can cause prices to sky rocket just out of the Average Joe’s nest egg range. Having an ear to the ground about what might be hot in the future could wind up saving you a lot of money if you’re smart enough to get it while the gettings still affordable.

Enter New York Magazine. In this week’s magazine, they looked into their crystal ball (well, they actually solicited the advice of a few real estate experts) and parsed out which will be the best neighborhoods to live in come 2014. Included were places such as West Harlem, Flushing, The Garment District, and Bushwick.

Why did these neighborhoods make the cut? Traits like distinctive architecture (think pre-wars or Brownstones), a relatively young community or artist population, or a noticeable increase in hotels, restaurants, or developments in the area were often a factor. For real estate shoppers, these can be great indicators of an area’s vitality or are a precursor to a future big boom. I’d like to add that another sign that a neighborhood or area might be on the rise is the approval of a transportation project like a highway or a  subway or a community works project – something that is going to greatly improve access to an area or the quality of life for its inhabitants.

The kicker is to remain alert and realistic. If you’re researching potential real estate investments, do your homework and thing long term but not too far out (you don’t want to be waiting ten years for the chain link fences to be superfluous.) But spotting real estate clues before others can be the difference between getting your dream house or apartment, and signing a lease on your rental for another year.
