The 2019 housing market was nothing but exciting for real estate websites.

Rents across the city hit new highs while sales prices plummeted, and now we’re seeing more and more New Yorkers moving to up-and-coming neighborhoods in a bid to save money.

Nancy Wu, Economist for real estate marketplace StreetEasy, has predictions for the New York City housing market in this upcoming year.

“Obviously there are still deals out there for everyone, but for the most part, we see that discounts on rentals have been decreasing year after year. So if you’re a renter, my advice would just be to show up to your open houses prepared with all your paperwork ready and be ready to sign because there’s so much competition right now in the market."
