US new home sales slump

first_img FEARS of a double-dip in the US housing market intensified yesterday after data showed that new home sales fell at the sharpest monthly pace in July since records began. Sales of new homes plummeted 12.4 per cent to an annual rate of 276,000 – the lowest since the data was first recorded in 1963 and well below the market’s expectations of a rate of 330,000 homes. The Commerce Department also revised down June’s annual sales pace to 315,000 units. New home sales have struggled to pick up over the past few months and the annual pace is only a quarter of what was seen in the boom years of the early 2000s.New York-based Steven Ricchiuto at Mizuho Securities said: “It is a bad report through and through, there is nothing in the details to tell you that things are improving whatsoever. The odds of the dreaded double-dip are increasing.”The downbeat data initially weighed on US equities but buying activity capped losses.Analysts expect the pace of new home sales to remain depressed for some months to come and predicted possible years of excess supply. ING’s Teunis Brosens said: “Sales may recover slightly in the coming months, as the demand fallout following the expiry of the homebuyer tax credit fades. But we expect them to remain low.”“Homebuilders continue to face tough competition from distressed sales. These typically sell at a discount and currently make up about 30 per cent of total sales. Moreover, while the building spree peaked in 2006, the housing market is still burdened with substantial excess supply. It may take several years to clear this excess,” he warned. whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com Show Comments ▼ whatsapp US new home sales slump Wednesday 25 August 2010 8:41 pm Share KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Midtown South owner offers big test for post-vaccine Manhattan

first_img Commercial Real EstateInvestment Salesmidtown south Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Empire Asset Management CEO Jason Pizer and 360 Park Avenue South. (Getty, 360 Park Avenue South)The owner of a Midtown South office building is testing investors’ appetite for Manhattan commercial space in a post-vaccination world.Enterprise Asset Management is looking to sell the ground lease on its 20-story office building at 360 Park Avenue South, sources with knowledge of the offering told The Real Deal. The 450,000-square-foot building will be completely vacant at the end of the year when the master lease on all of the building’s office space held by the business information firm RELX expires.That means any investor that picks up the property will be making a bet on the future demand for space in Manhattan around the time that a large swath of the city’s workforce could have received the Covid-19 vaccine.ADVERTISEMENTA representative for Enterprise Asset Management could not be immediately reached for comment. The property is being marketed by a CBRE team led by Darcy Stacom and Bill Shanahan, who also could not be immediately reached.One source familiar with the property said the leasehold interest could be valued just shy of $400 million, based on projected office rents for the area. But across the street, the medical fund manager Deerfield paid $345 million in 2019 to buy 345 Park Avenue South to convert for life-sciences use.Life-science properties in Manhattan can typically charge higher rents than traditional office buildings, though they cost more to build out, which could alter pricing for 360 Park Avenue South if an investor chooses to go that route. Enterprise Asset Management will also entertain a full sale of the building if an attractive offer comes along, according to a source familiar with the property.The owner is looking to get a deal done within the next year, as the company has a securitized mortgage with a balance of $204 million maturing next March.Enterprise Asset Management has owned the building since at least the 1960s. The company was founded by Meyer Steinberg, a Brooklyn native who owned properties in New York and California as well as shopping centers in the Midwest and Southwest.Steinberg died in 2003 at the age of 84. Property records indicate that one of his daughters, Carol Weisman, took the reins at the company. In 2018, the firm hired former Trinity Real Estate president Jason Pizer as CEO to oversee its holdings.Contact Rich Bockmann Full Name* Email Address*last_img read more
