Neighborhood selection plays a large role in finding the right home. In a city as varied and spread out as New York, it can be difficult to choose which neighborhood is the right fit. Localize has got you covered with our new neighborhood guides.
In our premiere rollout, we’ve compiled a list of the 20 most popular NYC neighborhoods buyers are searching for to help you narrow down the right nabe.
Stay up to date on the latest real estate trends
Our real estate trends section helps you know what to expect when it comes to a neighborhood’s housing stock. Here you’ll find median sale prices for a range of home sizes from studios up to three bedrooms, making it easy to compare listings and get a ballpark idea of price points for the area.
In addition to median sale prices, our guides also have helpful information on housing types. Is the area known for prewar buildings, walk ups, brownstones, or new condominium developments? We have the scoop.
Get important insights on schools and transportation
For parents, choosing a home near a good school is a top concern. Our schools section will give you an overview of notable schools, both public and private. For more information on how NYC public schools work, you can check out our guide here.
As a city that relies heavily on public transportation, we’ve got the lowdown on subway, rail, ferry, bus, and bike options so you can plan your commute. Sparse transit access can greatly impact your quality of life if you don’t have a car. Our transportation analysis helps you make the right homebuying decision based on your lifestyle.
