“While market wide trends are clearly moving positively, the investment sales market in New York City is somewhat uneven. Larger asset sales are skewing total dollar volume higher while the number of properties sold is lagging,” said Massey Knakal Chairman and Founding Partner Robert A. Knakal. “Values in Manhattan are generally trending upward while the properties in the outer boroughs are still trying to find their footing,” added Knakal.
