“HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!”
This week saw 34 new properties hit the market, seven of which are from the new Toll Brothers building at 1400 Hudson Street. This new building will add 236 new residences to the Hudson Tea Community and is slated from completion in early 2017. Of the units added to the MLS this week, the average price of a 2-bedroom unit is $1,253,328 and the average price per sq/ft is $972.
If the Hudson Tea is not quite your cup of tea don’t worry, there are plenty of other homes available in the area. I expect an increase in the number of available places after the holiday weekend as sellers continue to take advantage of the strong Spring Market.

Mortgage Market in Review
Recently, The Fed released the minutes from its last meeting. These showed that sentiment has grown for a second increase of overnight lending rates in 2016. Whether this will be in June or July is yet to be seen, but the markets have reacted accordingly. We’ve seen a steady sell off in the bond market for the past week, causing a slight bump in mortgage rates. Normally, the market will stabilize going into the holiday weekend, as overall trading volume will start to reduce. This leaves us with waiting until the beginning of June to get further guidance from the markets, and to see if this trend upwards on rates will continue, or if we we’ll see things settle back down.
