For the 3rd quarter of 2021, the average condo sale price in Manhattan was $1,720 per square foot, just 2% off closings from the 3rd quarter 2019. Prices have steadily risen over the course of 2021, with the average price/ft2 surging 12% from $1,536 in Q1 2021 to $1,727 so far this fourth quarter. Today's figures are on par with Q4 2019, showing that the Manhattan residential market has made up most of the ground lost during the pandemic.

Not all boats are rising, however. Units in Trump-branded properties have suffered some of the worse losses of value during the pandemic, even after nosediving after Donald Trump was elected president in 2016. On a price-per-square-foot basis, the average Manhattan condo is valued more than a condo in Trump's eight remaining branded properties.

Apartments in Trump-branded buildings are not alone. As stylistic tastes change and newer condo buildings outshine older stalwarts, apartments in many of Manhattan's once most sought-after properties have sat on the market for months, even after dramatic price improvements. Some units may be in dire need of renovation or are in buildings that have faced skyrocketing carrying costs. Whatever the reason these apartments potentially have plenty of value to unlock as the market tightens and new developments become harder to come by in the coming years. Find below available listings whose asking prices are substantially below their last closing price.
