A steep reduction in Wall Street bonuses could force Manhattan home prices down another 24%


Oshrat Carmiel, a reporter for Bloomberg and a good friend of mine, wrote an interesting story last week about the potentially devastating impact that the the expected reduction in Wall Street bonuses could have on Manhattan real estate.

Sam Chandan, Real Estate Economics’ chief economist, told her that a 50% decline in bonuses could result in a 20% to 24% drop in home prices. Prices have already fallen 15%, Chanden said.

Jonathan Miller, co-founder and President/CEO of Miller Samuel, told me recently that he thinks Manhattan prices have already fallen more than 20%.

Prices in Manhattan have a long way to fall. The median home in Manhattan was $955,000 in the fourth quarter of last year, Miller said.
