Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty today announced an increase in high-end sales year over year, pointing to a robust Hudson Valley luxury real estate market, particularly in Rockland’s Gold Coast, the Hudson River communities from Snedens Landing to Upper Nyack.
According to the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® and non-Multiple Listing Service transactions, as of the first six months of 2016 Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty has 41.32 percent market share in Rockland County for sales greater than $1 million and 64.38 percent for sales greater than $2 million.
“The significance of these statistics is that they indicate a healthy growth in the high-end market,” said Richard Ellis, owner of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty. “The luxury market sets the pace for the overall market, so these are all positive indications for the Hudson Valley.”
Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty also held Rockland County’s highest sale year to date − 14 Lawrence Lane in Palisades − for $4,287,500. The home also was the second highest sale in Snedens Landing in five years.
