The 1Q 2006 Manhattan Market Overview that my appraisal firm, [Miller Samuel](, prepares for [Prudential Douglas Elliman](, was released today. I always think its interesting (actually, its fun) to see how the various media outlets (Big and Small Media, Blogs) respond to the exact same set of data and how the real estate brokerage companies who write alternative reports, frame their comments.

This list is in no particular order and excluded all the redundant articles (ie news feeds). I will keep adding to it through the week after the initial post.

    But where is the actual report?! Can’t find it on curbed, PDE, or Matrix. Thanks, Dagan McCann

  2. Jonathan J. Miller says:

    Because the quarter ended on Friday, the data was crunched over the weekend and analyzed. The “pretty” version will be available in a few days. I will be uploading the raw data to in the next few days, as well as updating other content. I’ll make announcements as each item is uploaded. Thanks for your patience!

    Jonathan- great work! Our blog a post that revolved around you a bit tonight (and have been using your data for some time now).

    Jonathan- great work! We did a post the revolved around it, and you, tonight. We also use your data on an ongoing basis.

    I look forward to reading the report, as your data and insights “keep it real”. The preliminary stats cited by the press are very similar to what we are finding in the suburbs directly north of New York City. That is, the bottom of the market (price wise) continues to catch up with the upper market. If not for you, most of us wouldn’t even be aware of that 10+/- year old trend.

    It is interesting but not surprising to see all the different “interpretations” of your recent market overview. As always we see and hear what we want to. Most sources of information and analysis are not as objective and reliable as your market data report but even so without my own research, verification and analysis I could not do more than say I was in agreement, disagreement or see it a different way via what? instinct, gut feeling? Not unless backed up by my own leg work. Keep up the good work Jonathan -as always I am a big fan!
