Boutique to mid-size new developments with units carrying a 421-A Tax Abatement Boutique to mid-size new developments with units carrying a 421-A Tax Abatement
While the sticker price is the first thing that gets prospective New York City condo buyers' attention, it should not be the only thing. Real estate taxes can come as an unpleasant shock, but they are a monthly expense that must be considered along with everything else.

Thankfully, New York City has several programs in place to temporarily reduce the tax burden for years to come, which can lead to savings of thousands of dollars. Further details on the most common types can be found here.

Of the following buildings throughout the boroughs, it's hard to say what's more beautiful: the listings inside, or the tax abatements offered. We've highlighted our favorites below.
