Left in the Wake: Sandy’s Effects on New York City Neighborhoods

by Neil Reilly, CHPC Policy Analyst

Eighteen months after Superstorm Sandy most small homeowners are still waiting for assistance repairing or rebuilding their homes.

NYC Behind National Increase

New York City continues to lag the national increase in home sale prices. While the NYC metro area posted its first positive seasonally adjusted increase in three months, the non seasonally adjusted numbers show continuing decline. The nation as a whole is much more positive with the national 10 city index showing an increase of  0.9% to NYC’s 0.2%. For the one year, year over year changes NYC is still the only metro area in the US showing a decline.

Blame Sandy?

Case Shiller shows another jump up for the country and more disappointing results for the New York Metro area. The seasonally adjusted numbers show a 0.6% increase in the 10 city index for the period from October to November 2012 and a -0.3% decline for New York. While other metro areas including Chicago, Boston and Atlanta showed declines for the October to November period, only New York showed a year over year decrease of -1.2%. Perhaps we can blame Sandy for reducing sales in November.

Case Shiller Up Nationally – NYC Metro Down

While the Case Shiller Index of small homes continues to show a recovery pretty much across the country, the New York metro area shows a much more sluggish picture. From September 2012 to October 2012 the Index for the NYC Metro area declined by -0.4 % for the non-seasonally adjusted index compared to a decline of -0.1% for the 10 metro area index. Worse, we see a -1.3% decline from October 2011 where the 10 metro area index shows a 3.4% increase for the same period.

Case Shiller Up Again, Though NY Metro Dips

Nationally the seasonally adjusted Case Shiller Index has shown its eighth consecutive monthly gain, rising 0.3% from August 2012 to September 2012. The not so good news is that the New York metro area showed a -0.1% decline for the same period and is still -2.3% below its standing of 12 months ago.
