New York Real Estate Investment
"Could i begin life again, knowing what I now know, and had money to invest, I would buy every square inch of Manhattan." John Jacob Astor - America's first millionaire
Elika Associates specializes in New York investment properties, and as an exclusive buyer’s agency,
we offer our clients the dedication and quality research that results in smart real estate purchases.

With years of experience in risk aversion, we understand the needs of our clients and are able to
give responsive, knowledgeable real estate advisory services.

Regardless of whether you are considering residential
or commercial properties, New York City is one of the best real estate investment markets in the world. Many analysts expect median market prices in Manhattan to rise by ten to 40 percent in the next five years.

For investors, it is a classic example of strong demand and limited supply. With rising property values thanks to a growing populace, international and national interest and limited landmass, hundreds of
New York City properties provide their owners with high yields and insulation from unexpected market changes.

However, supply and demand is not absolutely consistent across the city. Investment potential varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Even if you are considering two similar apartments in the same building, one apartment might make a better investment than the other.

Factors that will affect your investment might include:

Property type. Many co-operative apartments restrict property owners’ subletting rights. Elika agents can help you understand subletting requirements and avoid unsatisfactory properties.

Tenant. Good investment properties will attract stable, long-term tenants. You should understand how to avoid properties with high turnover.

Property statistics. Neighborhood amenities, transportation, property age and neighborhood features will affect investment potential.

Neighborhood-specific markets. Property costs, yield and capital appreciation vary from street to street and from one development to the next. When investing, you will need a real estate agent who has access to all properties and market analysis info.

Exclusive Buyer's Agent

We are compensated as any other Broker and paid through the proceeds of the sale. Customarily, fees for real estate brokerage have been "built in" to the purchase price of the property. This means that a typical purchase will result in no additional out-of-pocket fees for you!

The question is: Would you want to pay to have someone work for you or for both you and the seller?

When an apartment sells, half of the 6% commission is paid to the real estate company that brings in the Buyer and the other half is kept by the company listing the property for sale, representing the Seller.

But when the real estate company who lists the property also brings in the Buyer, that real estate company keeps both the sides of the commission.

You may be thinking the higher the price you pay for the home, the higher our commission will be, so how does this work? We have a fiduciary responsibility to get the home at the best price for you, not the highest commission for ourselves. We know that our business expands more with satisfied clients, and recognize the long term value of their equity position.
