I'd say a great deal of Brooklyn within reasonable commute of Manhattan. Indeed, I've specialized the last few years in, as I say, "moving people across the bridge." The best bet in my opinion are single family homes. The supply is low and the demand is high. Indeed, I sold one (an estate sale) in Clinton Hill Brooklyn the increased in value about 50% in just a couple of months AND was appraised at time of sale for 20% more than sale price. A solid investment for sure, provided you find the right place at the right price. I am always on the lookout for good ones for my customers, many of whom live there and others who look to flip or rent out.

To piggy back off of Janet, you can also use the MNS and PDE reports. I've attached the link for the MNS report below, this is a little more rentals specific. I hope this helps!

I believe Civic Center has 155% increase 2011 - 2012.

But what is the point of this question?

Do you mind sharing please?

My point was addressing the radical increase in sale price in one year compared to the other neighborhoods in Manhattan (although I should check outer boroughs) and that increases effect on subsidized housing, affordable housing, crime rate, and noticeable changes in the neighborhood., specifically new business opening up where mainly family business were located.

" It is common in all businesses that the level of customer service, is usually based on income generated from that service given; which is fairly unfair to those who need just the same service of selling, buying or renting in New York City.

That's one of the reasons why we came up with ELITE. It is the highest standard level of same service given from a $2000 rental to a $40 Millions sale, and instead of treating the customers differently, we've decided to give them the ELITE service.
