A little bit of Manhattan’s by India’s side

Indians now account for close to 20% of all realty sales in Manhattan, and 30% of all enquiries made, says Raphael De Niro, ( son of Hollywood star Robert De Niro ) MD of New York’s biggest property broking firm Prudential Douglas Elliman.
Prices of residential apartments in Manhattan have slipped 20-25% off their peak in end-2007. Mr De Niro says he is currently negotiating with several Indian buyers who are public figures in India. Sales pitch for a typical Manhattan condo begins at Rs 3 crore-Rs 4 crore, less than what a South Mumbai apartment or a Mehrauli farm house comes for. Average price per square feet for a Manhattan East side condo is $1,249 while that for a South Central Mumbai apartment is $1,319. To read more, please, visit The Economic Times
