Commute times have an impact on prices and the hunt for affordable housing means people are living further from their jobs. Host Emily Myers and guest, Sarah Kaufman of the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation, talk about some of the city’s transit challenges—and surprising recent improvements. Plus, what it means to be a smart city, how New York is competing, and what public data collection can do for your housing goals.
To say it’s currently a buyer’s market in NYC is to miss the fact that prices for starter apartments are rising much more than at the high end. Host Emily Myers gets into the details of NYC's current market data with real estate appraiser Jonathan Miller, President and CEO of the firm Miller Samuel, exploring “peak uncertainty” in sales and a “cauldron of unaffordability” in rentals. Plus, we look at what impact the 2020 election might have on NYC sales.
