It ain’t easy…Shaun Osher

…to find an apartment! And it ain’t going to be easier anytime soon. The November Real Time Report shows us how the is market continuing to shrink, and honestly, we have a housing shortage of luxury homes in Manhattan. With less on the market, I can only predict that prices will continue to rise at an alarming rate. The extreme upper end will continue to gain strength over the next year and we can expect that a $10 million sale will be run-of-the-mill and deals over $50 million will become less newsworthy. All further proof that New York City is the strongest residential market on the globe.

Shaun Osher is the CEO and founder of CORE.

Maggie SNYAs an introduction to Season Six of Selling New York we’ve decided to switch up our normal epilogue and take a moment to interview SNY veteran and Season Six premiere episode star, Maggie Kent. Since Maggie has been on the show from its start, it only seemed right to have her take a moment to reflect on past and present in this quick Q&A.

1. Do you remember your first day of taping for Selling New York? What was it like?

Yes! It actually turned out to be one of my favorite episodes. It was shot in a beautiful apartment on Mulberry Street and it just felt really fun and easy.

2. Looking back on being selected for the show, did you feel any hesitations about starring in it?

At that time, there was a lot of negative reality TV programming popping up and we were taking a leap of faith that we would be represented in a way that wasn’t negative. HGTV really gave us a look and sound that only made our personal brands stronger.

3. Out of your personal roster, what is your favorite SNY episode?

After months of behind-the-scenes preparation, in a dash to the finish line, we’re excited to announce that sales have kicked off at our new downtown development project, 93 Worth. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, the market is hotter than ever in Tribeca, despite the neighborhood’s effects from Superstorm Sandy and buyers and brokers are not dissuaded.

After over a year of construction and renovations, we’re excited to share that the sixth floor model units are now ready. Buyers and brokers alike will now be able to check out the fully staged 3-bedroom, split 2-bedroom and studio model units which boast exposed steel columns, 7-foot casement windows and custom, hand-brushed patina brass fixtures throughout.

30 of the 92 units at the Tribeca development have been released and the sales office is now open. For more information, please visit www.93worth.com.

This week’s question: What’s the most common distraction in a home that may turn off potential buyers?

The CORE agent verdict: Clutter!

It seems like a fairly standard and obvious answer, but agents across the board are always faced with the challenge of getting sellers to de-clutter. CORE agent Debbie Batres explains that “In New York City, space is hard to come by and walking into a space where most of the apartment is covered in ‘things’ lessens the appearance of usable square feet.”
