With summer upon us, one would expect NYC real estate activity to be slowing down after a busy, record-breaking spring season. However, this year is different. Covid has changed the course for a market that once was driven by seasonal factors. Sales activity, while slightly down from the record breaking numbers reported this spring, continues to remain steady and strong. 

New Yorkers who fled east or down south at the start of the pandemic continue to stream back into the city they once called home. With more than half of the adult US population now vaccinated and companies preparing for a return to the workspace this fall, more and more people are planning or in the process of moving back to New York—a city like no other that draws people in for a multitude of reasons. 

With Covid having changed the way we operate as a society, it has disrupted all norms by proving that remote learning and working from home are viable solutions. For example, snow days for NYC schools are now officially canceled with students expected to continue their classes from home in this new post-pandemic era. There is more flexibility in how we live today which may make the seasonal trends we’ve been accustomed to seeing in the market over the years, a thing of the past. 

Has the pandemic changed the way you live? If you’ve been considering a move, let’s chat.
