Who is buying the ultra-luxury apartments in New York today?
June 18, 2019
Hosted by Vince Rocco
A Forbes’s Magazine recent article asks, “Who is buying the big-ticket New York City homes today?” In San Francisco, it is the Silicon Valley people. In Los Angeles, it has mostly always been show business and music people that have continued to fuel the mansion market. The identity of the New York ultra-luxury buyer has tended to be a more elusive target. During the run-up to the recession of 2008/2009, it was venture capitalists and, once again, the traders, many of whom were hawking mortgage-backed securities. And after the recession – the hedge fund guys have tended to be something of a boys’ club. The panel weighs in on this. Also at this Hour: New York state passed an increase in the so-called “mansion tax” on all homes above $1 million earlier this year. Instead of a simple 1 percent levy, the new tax will be more progressive, rising up to 3.9 percent on homes that sell for $25 million or more. What do sellers need to know as they consider pricing? Let’s find out.

I became interested in a real estate career in the mid-1990s while buying and selling Manhattan co-ops and condos for my own personal real estate projects (renovating and selling), and found it to be an exciting industry. I decided to make Real Estate a full time profession and I've never looked back.
The ROCCO Group is dedicated to delivering quality service to our buyers and sellers. I get personally involved in every detail of the deal. I am known for my straightforward approach, my integrity and flexibility while working with people. I cultivate strong relationships that last a lifetime.
I have an extensive knowledge of Manhattan and its neighborhoods. I became an expert in New Condo Development sales over the past five years selling in three separate new development projects. I've made appearances on 'Sweat Equity' on the DIY network as one of their pricing experts, and have been featured on 'House Hunters' on HGTV and I'm working on an interactive web/blog portal where I will be hosting a weekly 'over the net' Real Estate program featuring everything New York City. I have been quoted in NY Magazine, NY Post, NY Times, QUEST, The Real Deal, and Broker's Weekly.
I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with my dog, Jett. I know Manhattan well and all of its neighborhood's so touring for a new home is always an exciting adventure with me. I make it personal. Your dream of finding the perfect home or selling your home will become a reality.
