It’s here!!!! The past 4 years of sales data including co-ops (yes co-ops!!!) is available to the public to peruse. Thanks to Ethan Wilensky-Lanford of The New York Times for the tip off on real estate sales data searches. Check out the search engine at www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/property/property.shtml.
No square footage…of course not…because it’s not accurate. Nor is a room count available…they vary too depending on whom you ask. But this is a valuable tool for owners to gauge value of their homes and take a little bit more of the mystery out of the process. Has to be refreshing too for all those who are sick of feeling like the real estate industry has been holding information hostage for so long.
