UPDATED, Nov. 28, 4:26 p.m.: Richard Phan — who spent more than a decade at Corcoran with top broker Carrie Chiang — has jumped to Douglas Elliman. He started at the firm this month. Phan said he had considered making a change on-and-off for the last few years and now the timing felt right, in part because he’s developed his own client base. “In order for me to grow my business and grow professionally, the […]



Irrational exuberance? Rising commercial real estate prices could signal warning for economy: Fed Reserve



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 12:30 PM PST


Ever-rising commercial real estate prices nationwide could be a risk to the stability of the U.S. financial markets, as they were in the last recession. That was the assessment from the Federal Reserve in its inaugural financial stability report on Wednesday. Fed officials cited commercial real estate — in which purchase prices continue to outpace rent increases — as well as nonfinancial corporate borrowing as risks in its report, according to the Wall Street Journal. […]

Gladstone, Heiberger settle $100M libel suit



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 11:00 AM PST


Was it a stunt? A statement? Either way, developer Robert Gladstone has dropped his $100 million libel suit against Town Residential and Andrew Heiberger. Lawyers for the two parties said the action had been discontinued with prejudice in a letter sent Tuesday to Judge Gerald Lebovits.

Silverstein: Amazon can save Midtown’s luxury condo market



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 10:30 AM PST


Larry Silverstein thinks Amazon might bail out Midtown Manhattan’s struggling high-end condominium towers. “Long Island City is one, sometimes two, subway stops from Park Avenue and 59th Street,” Silverstein said. “There are going to be a lot of executives in Long Island City.” “Could that part of Manhattan get lucky because executives at Amazon want to live close to where they work? Highly possible,” he added. The chairman of Silverstein Properties spoke at a panel […]



Retail rents in Brooklyn are a mixed bag. These corridors saw the biggest changes

As California wildfires grow, homeowners, insurers hire private firefighting crews



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 09:00 AM PST


Around California, insurance companies and homeowners concerned about the increasing threat of wildfires are turning to private firefighting crews for an added layer of protection.

Boxed in: NYC landlords struggling to deal with residents’ online shopping addiction



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 07:05 AM PST


Online shopping is designed to make life easier — except for landlords. Call it a game of logistics. Property owners are grappling to adapt to a deluge of tenant packages from the likes of Amazon, Etsy, Blue Apron and Zappos, which have rendered traditional apartment building package rooms desperately inadequate. In some instances, that simply means renovating or expanding package to support a bigger haul. In others, where expansion is not a possibility, it means […]

These were the top 10 outer borough loans in October

All in: Zillow bigwigs buy $44M worth of stock amid selloff



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 05:00 AM PST

Dissecting the Queens condo craze



Posted: 28 Nov 2018 04:30 AM PST


Compared to Manhattan and Brooklyn’s trendy glass towers, new condominium projects in Queens have drawn less attention. But that’s quickly changing. For three of the past five years, developers built more expensive condo projects in Queens than in Brooklyn, an analysis by The Real Deal found.
