It’s time to share my Three Cents Worth (3CW) on Curbed NY, at the intersection of neighborhood and real estate in the capital of the world…and I’m here to take measurements.

This week I took a look at listing discount for the re-sale (existing) and new development sales markets. For purposes of this analysis, listing discount was defined as the percentage difference from the list price at the time of contract and the sales price.
