NEW YORK CITY –  The multifamily market in New York City has been on a downward slope since the announcement and passing of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 this past June that enacted landlord restrictions and extended rent regulation guidelines. And since the legislation passed in the New York State Assembly, multifamily sales have continued to slow down across the city, according to a new report from Property Shark, a real estate data provider.

Sales volume city-wide is down 60% year-over-year from $1.4 billion in November of last year to $412 million. Also, multifamily transactional activity slowed, with 893 recorded sales in the first 11 months of 2019 compared to the first 11 months of 2018, which saw 1,209 deals close. And the most significant indicator of all is the number of units sold: 20,124 between January 1 and November 30 of the current year versus the 44,308 that traded hands in the same timeframe last year.
