NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- With growing confidence in the improving economy, residential sales activity and prices in the boroughs saw significant gains in the second quarter of 2014, according to the Real Estate Board of New York's (REBNY) Second Quarter New York City Residential Sales Report, New York City's only five-borough report released today.
Average sales prices for one-to-three family homes in Brooklyn surged 21 percent, while sales volume increased 18 percent from last year. Similarly, prices for one-to-three family homes in Queens climbed six percent, while sales volume increased by nine percent. Sales of one-to-three family homes in the Bronx also outpaced the volume seen in the second quarter of last year with a 14-percent-increase and an average sales price increase of about one percent.
"The increasing confidence of single family homebuyers in the economy, the affordability of houses, and the continuing desirability of the boroughs as places to live and raise a family have had an impact on the growth of residential sales activity throughout the City," said Steven Spinola, President of REBNY. "The majority of housing in Brooklyn and Queens is in one-to-three family homes. The large jump in the average sales price and volume for these properties is a strong, positive sign for the City's economy. In addition, the mortgage recording tax and transfer tax revenue from these sales will help pay for the services that are so essential for the vitality of these communities."
Other notable gains this quarter, as compared to the second quarter of 2013, included: the 19-percent-increase in the average sales price for all homes in Brooklyn to $715,000; the 15-percent-boost in coop sales in Queens; and the 13-percent-increase in the average sales price for a coop in New York City to $768,000. The residential market in Manhattan also remained strong with the average sales price for all homes increasing by six percent to $1,491,000 year-over-year.
The total number of homes sold (cooperatives, condominiums, and one-to-three-family dwellings) during the second quarter was 10,722, a two-percent-increase from last year. The six-percent-increase in the average sales price for all homes in New York City to $826,000 was driven by price increases in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The total consideration for all residential sales in New York City during the second quarter of 2014 was $8.9 billion, an increase of six percent from last year. Total consideration for Manhattan increased 8.3 percent year-over-year to $4.9 billion. In Brooklyn, the total consideration was $1.9 billion, an increase of 13.5 percent from last year.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
