Average Apartment Price

Graph shows New York (Manhattan) average apartment prices of condos and coops.  The sizes are studio (no bedroom), one bedroom, two bedrooms, three bedrooms and 4+ bedrooms.

Key points:
* Declines in median price for all apartment sizes.
* Three and four bedroom apartments saw the largest declines in median property price.
* Average apartment price declined by 3.5% for condos and 11.2% for coops.

Apartments in Manhattan are small.  Well, it's relative right?  Are we comparing to Tokyo and Hong Kong or to Malaysia? 

It's roughly $1000 per square foot.  Refer New York property price appreciation history for the graph.  This means $500K gets you a 500 square feet studio apartment.  Studio means no bedroom, the entry level.  In Hong Kong, 500 square feet would be a two bedroom apartment.  In Malaysia, perhaps the size of a dining room.
