Apparently, not even the reliably expensive West Village is immune to the COVID-induced housing price drops sweeping Manhattan. According to residential-real-estate analytics firm UrbanDigs, the median asking price for new listings in the area has decreased to the lowest figure in years, from $2.8 million in May to $1.765 million in August. Or, in sum: “Buyers may soon start to find real deals in the West Village,” says John Walkup, CEO of UrbanDigs.
To find said deals, we scoured listings in the neighborhood for nice-looking units with a good amount of space and amenities for the price. Below, our five favorites, listed in order of ascending price. They all turned out to be units in co-op buildings and are primarily under-$1 million studios and one-bedrooms, with the exception of a particularly lovely two-bedroom with casement windows on Perry Street.
Price: $439,000 (monthly maintenance: $681)
