“Activity in the city’s rental market increased during January, due in part, to pent-up demand from the holiday season. Many New Yorkers waited until the new year to search for a home,” explained Gary Malin, Chief Operating Officer of The Corcoran Group. “However, tenants remain price-sensitive; so many owners chose to offset higher rents with a move-in incentive. With pricing near record highs, the current rental market is a ‘zero sum’ game. ”
