Housing Affordability

La Vie Boheme no more, US housing data suggests Fewer renters and homeowners were cost-burdened in 2015 than previous years

Sunny days are ahead for middle-class American households.

Fewer renters and homeowners were cost-burdened in 2015 than in previous years, according to an analysis of American Community Survey data cited by the Wall Street Journal. 

About half of all American renters spent more than 30 percent of their income — the threshold for what’s considered a “burden” — on rent in 2014, according上海千花社区 上海千花网交友 to the analysis author Jed Kolko, a senior fellow at UC Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation. In 2015, however, that rate dropped to just over 49 percent, the lowest it has been since 2008.

Accounting for both renters and homeowners, the overall percent of cost-burdened households fell from 34.6 percent in 2014 to 33.6 percent in 2015, thanks in part to growing incomes and low interest rates. The number of cost-burdened households have been declining for five consecutive years since its peak of 38.1 percent in 2010.

The big jump in income between 2014 and 2015 helped owners and renters, Kolko told The Real Deal. And homeowners with mortgages got an additional boost from declining mortgage rates.

Overall homeownership has bee上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛n declining, however, the data shows. Only 949,000 new households created in 2015上海龙凤论坛 新上海贵族宝贝论坛 — that’s down from the 1.2 million in 2014, though sales have been consistently rising in pace.

Yair Levy’s daughters, in partnership with Ezra Mashaal of the Kash Group, sold the retail condominium at the base of 上海夜网 阿爱上海同城the 16-story Financial District apartment building known as the Croft, sources told The Real Deal.

Hubb NYC Properties paid $19.6 million for the 5,650-square-foot condo at 71 Nassau Street last week, sources said. Yair Levy and Mashaal converted the Beaux-Arts office building on the site to 52 luxury residential condos in 2005. The retail component, however, belongs to Yair Levy s two daughters, Rafaela and Galit Levy, and Mashaal.

Dan Deutsch爱上海同城手机版 新爱上海同城对对碰论坛, a son-in-law to Yair Levy who spoke on his behalf, told TRD that Yair had no ownership in the condo. Sources said the Levy family is searching for Manhattan properties to acquire as part of 1031 exchanges.

In the competitive, crowded condo market, an address can mean everything higher prices, faster sales, numerous offers爱上海 爱上海同城手机版 and brokers are seeing this first hand on Leonard Street in Manhattan.

Ever since Herzog deMeuron s 56 Leonard Street opened, the street name has become a symbol of Tribeca s prestige and distinction, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“It put Leonard Street on the map,” said Compass Leonard Steinberg to the Journal. “It is instantly recognizable to a large group of people who know Tribeca.”

Now some developers who are close to Leonard Street are renaming their buildings; The Leonard is one building s new name while others are opting for a Leonard Street address. For example, 346 Broadway is now 108 Leonar爱上海同城 爱上海d while 350 Broadway is now 101 Leonard.

“I always appreciate it if an address will tell me where something is,” marketing consultant Richard Pandiscio told the Journal. For him and others working in the area, Leonard Street is now synonymous with Tribeca.
