City Hall gets serious about Airbnb oversight



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 01:41 PM PST


City Hall published proposed rules for the oversight of short-term rental listings on platforms like Airbnb.

Posted: 19 Nov 2018 01:15 PM PST


Listings that happen in Vegas won’t stay in Vegas. The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors has changed its mind about sending listings to Zillow and ListHub.

Posted: 19 Nov 2018 12:45 PM PST

The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index dropped eight points to 60, considerably more the single point drop expected by economists, according to Bloomberg. The Federal Reserve has hiked the benchmark borrowing rate quicker this year than was expected, which has […]

Manhattan’s hot run of luxury home contracts chilled last week: Olshan



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 08:30 AM PST


Like the famous Union Square Coffee Shop and Broadway’s Drama Book Shop, Manhattan’s recent run of luxury-home deals has come to an end.

Last week was also the first time since September 2017 that not one contract was signed at $10 million or above. […]

Posted: 19 Nov 2018 06:56 AM PST


Eight months after a C-suite shakeup and split with its CFO, Compass has tapped a Carlyle Group executive to help oversee the firm’s “hypergrowth.” The SoftBank-backed firm said Monday it hired Kristen Ankerbrandt as chief financial officer, overseeing its financial operations, acquisitions and investor relations effective Nov. 26. Ankerbandt replaces Craig Anderson, a former COO and CFO of cycling chain Flywheel, who lasted seven months before being pushed out in March. Anderson was hired to […]



Trump Org likely to face heightened scrutiny from Democrats next year



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 06:40 AM PST


The Trump Organization will be facing new scrutiny next year when the Democrats take control of the House, which gives them broad power to issue subpoenas to probe the famously opaque company. Starting in January, Democrats will be able to look into things such as how much contact President Trump keeps with Trump Organization executives after he agreed to step away from control of the company, Bloomberg News reported. They can ask whether he discusses […]



City set to finally get the ball rolling on North Brooklyn industrial rezoning



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 06:00 AM PST


The city is getting ready to release a stalled plan to rezone the industrial part of Northern Brooklyn to make way for taller buildings.

TF Cornerstone, which is developing a portion of Amazon’s new headquarters in Long Island City, signed a contract to buy a $300 million development site nearby just days before the e-commerce company made its official announcement.

These are Manhattan’s top 20 property management firms



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 04:30 AM PST


Two years ago, Douglas Elliman won the Holy Grail of property management assignments: Co-op City. With 35 buildings and 15,000 units in the Bronx, the Mitchell-Lama project is the country’s largest cooperative housing complex. Co-op City’s board hired Elliman in May 2016, more than a year after abruptly firing Marion Scott Real Estate over allegations that the company mishandled its duties. Marion Scott has disputed the claim. The co-op board, Riverbay Corporation, self-managed the complex […]



Why multifamily buildings don’t trade very often in Queens



Posted: 19 Nov 2018 04:00 AM PST


Queens has been at the forefront of New York City’s development boom, with major new megaprojects rising from Astoria to Flushing. And with Amazon’s official selection of Long Island City for half of its so-called HQ2, the appetite for large scale developments in Queens is likely to accelerate even further. But one segment of the local market that has remained consistently slow is deals for multifamily buildings, where activity almost always lags behind the other […]
