It’s November in New York and that means three things: Q3 Market Updates are out, holiday shopping begins, and it’s time for a feast of food. New York City is a special place to be during the holiday season, and it’s an even more special place to own a home. The market has shifted considerably over the last few years – with a mad rush to buy turning into flat and then declining numbers in the last ~2 years.
