After more than two years of rising rents, Manhattan prices slipped a bit as compared to last year. Rents haven't been rising as quickly as they did in the previous year and the mortgage rate jump last spring pulled many would-be renters into the sales market by the end of the summer. Landlord concessions continued to be rare, but tenants continued to resist rent increases at the time of lease renewal by seeking better affordability if it could be found. With rising mortgage rates and tight credit we expect rents to remain at a plateau for the coming quarters. Brooklyn rental prices continued to rise at a fast pace reaching their highest level in five years. Marketing times were faster and there was limited negotiation of list price. An increasing number of renters challenged by higher prices were seeking out affordability rather than renewal. We expect this trend to continue into next year.
