Developers are increasingly offering free rent — in some cases three months worth — and it s becoming difficult for individual owners to compete, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Best Neighborhoods In America

Eliot, Oregon

Move over, New York and San Francisco. Real estate company Redfin recently released its list of the hottest neighborhoods of 2017, and locales in city-adjacent towns such as Oakland, California, and Bellevue, Washington, dominated over their urban counterparts.

The ranking looked at neighborhoods that experts expect to become up-and-coming hotspots, and highlights a growing trend: Homebuyers want the amenities of both suburban and city life. They re looking for big, renovated houses minus the price tag a place in the heart of a major city would bring.

While many of 2017 s hottest neighborhoods come with longer commutes, Redfin agents say they offer homebuyers the best balance of everything: quick access to public transit, trendy shopping and dining options, plus larger move-in ready homes with charm and price tags that are a little easier to bear, the report states.

To predict what will be the hottest neighborhoods of 2017, Redfin measured neighborhood growth by analyzing the number of pageviews from visitors to Redfin.com and the number of homes favorited by users on the site. Redfin also consulted local agents to confirm which areas are heating up in popularity.

From turn-of-the-century homes outside New Orleans to Silicon Valley-adjacent pads in Sunnyvale, California, read on to see the hottest neighborhoods for 2017.

City housing agency banking on shaky federal funds Nearly $4M in limbo as White House weighs housing cuts

The city’s housing agency has found itself in quite a predicament by banking on federal funds that it’s in danger of losing.

The Department上海千花网交友 上海千花网论坛 of Housing Preservation and Development has said it expects to save $3.7 million through 2021 thanks to community development block grants from the federal government. But that’s the same pot of money that s in danger of being cut by President Trump.

There are proposed huge cuts to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. That absolute elimination of the community develo新上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝交流区pment block grant program would mean a lot of things, It would mean less money for senior citizens, less money for senior centers, cuts to home repair for seniors,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a City Hall press conference, Politico reported. Without the grants, the mayor said t上海贵族宝贝论坛 上海贵族宝贝he city won’t be able to protect tenants who lose heat or hot water上海夜网论坛 上海夜网 or need other emergency repairs.

In March, Trump proposed cutting the federal housing agency’s budget by $6.2 billion and eliminating community上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 block grants entirely.

NYC housing commissioner Maria Torres-Springer said 86 percent of her budget comes from federal funds. The agency can save $1.3 million during the rest of this fiscal year, and $1.6 million each fiscal year through 2021. [Politico] E.B. Solomo[……]

Westchester Fairfield Cheat Sheet: Plans for regional MLS unveiled, CT legislators propose competitive bidding bill for casino development more

Clockwise from top left: Bridgeport s legislators proposed a bill that could help MGM s waterfront project, Steven Cid joined Houlihan Lawrence Commercial Group, Stephen Westerberg was named a first vice president of investments at Marcus Millichap, Port Chester cleared the way for four developments including 546 Locust St., and the Greenwich estate Mel Gibson called Wayne Manor is on the m上海夜网论坛 上海夜网arket for $22.5 million.

Westchester and Long Island brokers to partner on regional listing service
The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors and the Long Island Board of Realtors are exploring a partnership in a metro area multiple listings service. Although sources say the talks are preliminary, the two groups, which have a combined 36,000 agents, say they plan to combine their listing systems and hope to eventually cover the entire New York area, including New York City.

Bronx Real Estate Investment

Investor interest in the Bronx gets further boost as borough logs more residential sales and rental jumps

414 Gerard Avenue

The Bronx may be the cheapest residential market in上海夜网 阿爱上海同城 New York, but on the investment front, it’s still got runway.

And, the latest market report for the borough reinforces why real estate players have had a strong appetite for investment and development there for the past several years.

In 2017’s fourth quarter, average residential prices in the Bronx breached their pre-recession peak for the first time, hitting a record of $515,000, according to a report the Real Estate Board of New York released last month. The previous peak was $507,000 in 2006.

The Bronx also saw the largest increase in residential sales volume among the five boroughs — jumping 17 percent, to $455 million, year-over-year.

Although dollar volumes are far higher in every other borough — Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, for example, saw $4.8 billion in sales, $2.4 billion and $2.3 billion, respectively, for the quarter — none of them experienced the same kind of growth. Manhattan saw sales volume drop 12 percent, while Brooklyn saw a 4 percent jump and Queens increased by about 12 percent, according to the REBNY numbers.

Meanwhile, rents have also increased at a faster clip in the Bronx than they have elsewhere in the city, and investment sales have picked up.

In addition, as The Real Deal and others have incessantly reported, rental developments — both subsidized and market rate — are[……]

Pearlmark Real Estate Partners landed a $125 million loan from the Blackstone Group to refinance its boutique Tower 56 office building in the Plaza District.

Chicago-based Pearlmark, headed by CEO Stephen Quazzo, started searching for new debt in the spring to refinance the 33-st爱上海同城对对碰 爱上海同城论坛ory office tower it bought from Harry Macklowe’s 上海千花网论坛 上海千花网Macklowe Properties for $158 million in 2008.

The 187,000-square-foot property between Park and Lexington avenues at 126 East 56th Street was part of the $7 billion former Equity Office portfolio Macklowe sold off when the credit markets collapsed a decade ago amid the global financial crisis.

Real estate private equity firm Pearlmark has since spent $30 million to update the building, including a full renovation of the lobby and an upgrade to the building’s mechanical system.

The Blackstone loan comes with a five-year term and a commitment that allows Pe上海龙凤论坛sh1f 上海龙凤论坛arlmark to draw future funding for leasing costs, a source with knowledge of the loan told The Real Deal.

The financing replaces a $92.5 million loan that Pearlmark got from Canadian bank CIBC in 2013, property records show.
