New York City ApartmentsOur CEO, James Prendamano, had the opportunity to speak with Tracey Porpora at The Staten Island Advance to discuss the Renter Migration Report by Apartment List. 

 

The study revealed that 32.3% of apartment hunters currently living in New York are looking to move elsewhere.  James was quoted saying “We have been talking about how the cost of living, coupled with technology decentralizing everything from real estate to employment basis, has been leading to a significant migration out of New York and the city in general. While the 2020 Migration Report reveals what seemed to be staggering numbers, this should come to no surprise to anyone, as it just confirms what we’ve been seeing on the ground. ... It’s hardly a coincidence the cost of living for…

ForeclosuresCasandra Properties CEO, James Prendamano, spoke to Tracey Porpora from the Staten Island Advance to discuss the latest study that found foreclosures have spiked on Staten Island over the last year. The study conducted by Property Shark saw an increase of home foreclosures from 48 in the third quarter of 2018, to 136 in the same quarter in 2019. 

 

“There is a big difference between a loan that is not performing and one that is actually been put into the foreclosure process. In many cases these non-performing loans are sold in bundles at significant discounts off par value to other banks and investment companies.  It is not unusual for a loan to be sold several times before arriving at its final servicing entity.  The average homeowner would notice…

Staten Island RailwayOur CEO, James Prendamano, recently had the opportunity to discuss the reasoning behind the increase in home prices that are within walking distance to the Staten Island Railway (SIR). According to the study you can get anywhere from 9%-34% higher price for your home vs. elsewhere on the Island. The average price of a home near a SIR station is $499,000, with the rest of the borough averaging $459,000.

 

James was quoted saying “All things being equal, it makes perfect sense the train stops from Mid-Island and those as you get closer to the ferry carry with them pricing bumps in and around the train stations.”

Staten Island's North ShoreOur CEO, James Prendamano, had the opportunity to speak with Crain’s New York to discuss what we have seen in the past and what has been happening on the ground in real time on Staten Island’s North Shore. The article is entitled A Shore Thing: Staten Island’s North Shore Booms Along Bay Street. 

 

James was quoted saying “Staten Island as a whole has been shockingly stagnant since 1975 but these developments have had a profound impact.  Ten years back this area was not as appealing but I am bullish on it now. There’s tremendous growth opportunity here.  There’s such demand for housing and people want a walkable community and transit-based development”.  James went on to say “This wasn’t big bad developers pushing people out – in all these…

I was going to write this morning about all of the recent regulatory shifts in the rental market, our predictions (which have been consistent and spot on!), and how we see opportunity in this market as everyone runs for the hills.

I thought about how every day, every sunrise, we are greeted with a new set of opportunities and a bit of a clean slate.  I decided to save the heavier material for later in the week, today let’s talk about the amazing opportunities in real estate right here on Staten Island, shall we?

Staten Island, the forgotten borough, Staten Island never misses the opportunity to miss an opportunity.... remember…
