The 20 biggest residential real estate transactions of 2022

Las propiedades de lujo en Manhattan, Los Ángeles y Palm Beach obtuvieron las tres ofertas más caras en la primera mitad de 2022, con cada venta superando los $ 125 millones, según un nuevo análisis de Inman.
Conexión Inman.

El mercado inmobiliario de lujo ha tenido una buena racha hasta ahora, especialmente considerando la inflación, el aumento de las tasas hipotecarias y la reducción del inventario.

Sin duda, el aumento de las tasas y los precios Pero eso no ha disuadido a los compradores de viviendas de lujo, dijeron los agentes inmobiliarios a Inman. Sin embargo, lo que ha dado es un mercado de valores fluctuante e incertidumbre en la economía.

Pero en total, los agentes coinciden en que el sector del lujo superó las expectativas en los dos primeros trimestres de 2022.

el mercado se está normalizando y está saliendo, nuevamente, de un año récord”, dijo a Inman Stan Ponte de Sotheby’s International Realty en Manhattan. “Entonces, la idea de que 2022 puede no estar al mismo ritmo que 2021, cuando se vendieron más bienes raíces que en cualquier otro momento de la historia de la ciudad de Nueva York y el país, es noticia porque parece de interés periodístico, pero… el mercado es saludable. En todo caso, [es] simplemente normalizarse en términos de ritmo”.

“No es normal, ni agradable, ser comprador y tener 20 ofertas en una propiedad”, continuó. “El hecho de que ahora solo haya dos ofertas, o cuatro, o la cantidad que sea, no significa… simplemente significa que el mercado se está normalizando”.

The luxury market may be headed toward a correction, but some sizable sales took place over the past six months. Three deals this year went under contract above $120 million and four at or above $100 million. That’s not bad considering at least six properties sold above $120 million  In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic reached U.S. soil, just one sale surpassed $100 million.

Traditionally hot luxury markets like Manhattan, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, the Hamptons and Aspen all made the cut this year, with Manhattan, L.A., and Palm Beach netting the three priciest deals.

L.A and other surrounding markets in Southern California comprised the bulk of the top deals, notching seven out of 20 transactions. From there, four of the top 20 deals were in Manhattan and five landed in and around Palm Beach and Aspen.

As always, drafting a comprehensive list is difficult, due to secrecy surrounding upper-echelon deals. But Inman believes what follows is the most accurate list of the top 20 residential real estate deals over the first half of 2022.

Billionaire investor Daniel Och made a hefty profit when he sold his penthouse at 220 Central Park South at the very end of December 2021 for $190 million, about twice the amount he paid for the property in 2019. The buyer was not identified and the sale was completed off-market, only becoming public in January 2022. Deborah Kern from The Corcoran Group represented the seller.

In an encore appearance one of the Palm Beach properties that made Inman’s most recent top beach deals list has shown up again just over one year later. Billionaire internet entrepreneur Jim Clark purchased the sweeping 15-acre property in March 2021 from the Ziff publishing family for $94.2 million, only to turn around and get it under contract in mid-June 2022 for $173 million, The Wall Street Journal first reported.

Lawrence Moens of Lawrence A. Moens Associates represented both sides of the deal.
Clark told The Journal the purchase of the property, with roughly 1,200 feet of ocean frontage, was a spontaneous one he and his wife Kristy made when they believed they’d transition to living in Florida more often. But as 2021 drew on turning into 2022 the couple decided to stay in New York and remembered there was another interested buyer at the time they purchased the property, realizing they could sell. The buyer was recently revealed.

After 10 years of construction and mounting debts  at a no-reserve auction for $126 million in March. The mammoth 21-bedroom, 49-bathroom Bel Air home had been plagued by construction delays and skyrocketing costs to satiate Niami’s dreams of creating the largest, most expensive home in the world. Before it could be sold, however, chapter 11 bankruptcy found Niami and his development company.

Still, the property did set one record (though it fell far short of aspirations) — it became the most expensive U.S. home to sell at auction, Concierge Auctions which handled the sale was proud to report. Aaron Kirman of Compass and Brandon and Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates represented the listing. Fashion Nova CEO was subsequently revealed as the buyer.

The main house on Great Island | Douglas Elliman Realty
After unsuccessfully being put on the market multiple times starting in 2016, Great Island failed to sell until Douglas Elliman’s Jennifer Leahy snagged the listing late in 2021. She closed the deal with the town of Darien, Connecticut for $100 million by late May 2022.

The 60-acre property located on the Long Island Sound that was once owned by baking powder entrepreneur William Ziegler includes a Gilded Age mansion, a colonial farmhouse and an equestrian building with an arched tile ceiling designed by Rafael Guastavino, the engineer who created Grand Central Terminal.

Tech company InterSystems founder Phillip Ragon swept up three properties in a single $93 million transaction in Golden Beach, Florida at the beginning of June setting a price record for the area. According to one pair of seller’s agents involved in the transaction — Danny Hertzberg and Jon Mann of the Jills Zeder Group at Coldwell Banker Realty — Ragon has plans to demolish the modest homes located on just under two acres with 275 feet of ocean frontage and construct one single-family home on the combined properties.

Pablo Alfaro of Douglas Elliman and Silverlane Realty Inc. also represented separate sellers involved in the transaction. Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon of the Corcoran Group collaborated with Hertzberg and Mann on the deal as well.

Previously the highest-priced home sold in Miami-Dade County was $75 million, purchased by hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin in 2021.

901 N. Ocean Blvd. | Zillow
Just nine months after selling for $64 million, a Palm Beach estate sold for about $86 million in June.

The deal on the 18,000-square-foot oceanfront home was a bit secretive, with a trust managed by attorney Paul Krasker and linked to Jeffrey Feinman, a partner at accounting firm DDK & Co., serving as the seller. Lawrence Moens of Lawrence A. Moens Associates represented the seller, while Dana and Paulette Koch at The Corcoran Group represented the buyer, who was not identified.

The property, which sits on about one acre, includes a pool, wine cellar gym, media room and guest house.

Real estate investor and spec home developer Clark Beatty finished the property in 2021 and listed it for $84 million before lowing the price, and then selling it to Beachgreen LLC for $64 million in August 2021.

In an effort at simplifying his life, New York financier Ronald Perelman offloaded his Hamptons beachfront mansion in February for $84 million after first listing it for $115 million in September 2021. The 11,000-square-foot-plus home sits on just over nine acres and offers 385 feet of ocean frontage. Herald Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing.
The sale came amidst Perelman’s declining net worth in recent years in tandem with factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic and his company, makeup giant Revlon, facing serious financial difficulties.

Canadian rapper Drake made real estate headlines in recent months for doling out a cool $75 million for the Tuscan-style Beverly Hills estate of British pop singer Robbie Williams.
Drake may have thought he snagged a deal since the 24,000-square-foot property was listed for $85 million. But Williams earned a nice profit having bought the home in 2015 for just $32.7 million. The secluded property sits behind a long, private driveway on over 20 acres of land that features canyon and city views.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency represented the listing and Marc Bretter of Maywood Property Group represented the buyer.

The Jala Penthouse at Aman New York went under contract for a hefty $74.34 million at the beginning of July in a deal brokered by Amie Buchanan, global director of residences at Aman, and Douglas Elliman’s Patricia Vance, who represented the buyer.

For now, the buyer remains anonymous, but a representative from Douglas Elliman was able to tell Inman that the purchaser is a foreign buyer.

The penthouse encompasses the entire 20th floor of the building, complete with a private 49′ x 15′ saltwater pool and two jacuzzis — one in the pool area, one in the primary suite bathroom. The sweeping residence has four bedrooms and multiple terraces with views of Central Park and the Upper East Side. Other outstanding features include herringbone patterned floors, custom designed oiled walnut double doors, nearly 11′ ceilings and Gaggenau appliances.
Helmut Lang’s former estate on Tyson Lane | Google Maps

Designer and artist Helmut Lang sold his oceanfront Hamptons property in separate parcels to his neighbors for a total of about $70 million in May. Two years prior Lang had sold part of the property to his neighbor John B. Hess, CEO of Hess Corp, for $9 million. This time around Hess paid about $30 million for 1.1 acres of the property, while Lang’s other neighbor investor Howard Marks paid about $40 million for approximately 1.6 acres.

Lang originally purchased the 3.5-acre property in 1999 for about $15.5 million. It includes the main house, swimming pool, guest house, garage and an artist’s studio. The deal was conducted off-market and terms of the deal stipulated that Lang could stay in his home for two more years.

Yossi Benchetrit, of cable TV company Altice USA, and his wife Gaëlle Pereira Benchetrit, of cosmetics clinic Clinique des Champs Elysées New York, were apparently so pleased with their apartment in 432 Park Ave. purchased in 2016, they went ahead and bought another one in April.

The purchase is somewhat baffling since the building, though originally hyped as a sleek luxury tower in a prime location of the city, ultimately faced a series of complaints from residents who coughed up some serious money to live the high life only to learn as time went on that the tower had significant construction defects.

The astronomical height of the tower contributed to intense swaying that left elevators inoperable, broken pipes, flooding and loud creaking noises. As a result, the condo board has an against the developer CIM Group and Macklowe Properties.

Ryan Stenta of Douglas Elliman and Carrie Chiang of the Corcoran Group represented the seller, a limited partnership called Blessings Investments which is linked to the British pharmaceutical magnate Meeta Patel. Jason Haber of Compass represented the buyers.
49 Beverly Park Circle | Trulia

In an off-market deal at the end of March, billionaire businessman Alec Gores offloaded his Beverly Park Circle estate for $70 million to Titan Golden Capital, an Irvine, California-based limited liability company tied to Chi Fai Ben Wong and Hao Tang, according to records.

The massive 40,000-square-foot, French Normandy-style home has 11 bedrooms and sits on over two acres of land. The exclusive gated community of Beverly Park is well-known as a coveted one that’s drawn celebrities, such as Denzel Washington and Sylvester Stallone.

Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Realty and Samira Gores, Christine Martin and Tiffany Martin of The Agency represented the sale.

A waterfront home in Naples, Florida, broke price records in the area when it went under contract for $62 million at the end of June. The buyer was the industrialist Randal Bellestri, who was sentenced to one year in prison in 2014 for filing false tax returns and conspiracy to file false tax returns with the IRS after not reporting proceeds from the sale of scrap metal associated with his aviation business.

The sellers were Domenic and Molly Ferrante, according to records. Mr. Ferrante previously was the managing director of Bain Capital, and today is managing partner of a family investment office called The Ferrante Group. Both the buyer and the sellers were represented by Paul Arpin of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.

The 16,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms and sits on 1.5 acres of land overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The home includes a built-in glass wine room, a game room, a club room and two outdoor pools. Previously, the priciest home ever sold in Naples went for $52 million.

Without previously thinking about putting her home on the market Christy Thompson, daughter of late Texas oil exec J. Cleo Thompson, sold her mansion in Aspen for $60 million marking one of the most expensive mountain sales of the year. Liz Leeds of Slifer, Smith and Frampton & REALM represented Thompson in the deal which took place at the end of May .

Todd Lemkin, chief investment officer at Dallas-based investment firm Canyon Partners, and his wife Kasey Lemkin purchased the property following the $32.25 million sale of a historic home the couple owned in Aspen earlier that same month.

The nearly 17,000-square-foot property that sits at the base of Aspen mountain features seven bedrooms, an indoor swimming pool, a spa, a wine cellar, a garage with a car turntable and a 40-foot high foyer that displays a 30-foot waterfall wall. The property is also known for serving as a rental to celebrities including singer Rihanna.

Easy on Me” singer Adele made her mark on the top recent real estate deals with the purchase of actor Sylvester Stallone’s custom-built Beverly Hills estate for $58 million. Unfortunately for Stallone, he didn’t make out as well as he had hoped. The actor originally listed the property for $110 million in January 2021, then again for $80 million in October — but $58 million isn’t too bad either.

Stallone purchased the land for $2.35 million in 1994 and built the Mediterranean-style estate from the ground up. It’s one of the more secluded homes in sought-after Beverly Park located at the end of a cul-de-sac and down a long, gated driveway.

Tomer Fridman of Compass, Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency represented the listing.

The Crown Building | Aman New York
An apartment covering the entire 22nd floor of the Aman New York Crown Building at the end of May, reported, marking another significant sale in New York in recent months. The 6,300-square-foot condo with four bedrooms and views overlooking Central Park originally asked $62.5 million.

Tal Alexander of the Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman represented the anonymous buyer. Construction of Aman New York began in 2017. The building was developed by the Miami-based OKO Group and London-based developer and real estate investor Cain International.

Just last week a Vanderbilt family mansion in Manhattan went under contract for $52.5 million in an off-market deal, reported. The 57-foot-wide, 23,000-square-foot limestone townhouse was built around 1930 for Virginia Graham Fair Vanderbilt, wife of William Kissam Vanderbilt II, according to the National Register of Historic Places.

The seller English antique dealer Carlton Hobbs purchased the property in 2002 for $10.6 million from Lycée Francais de New York, a French-English school. Before that, the building served as the Permanent Mission of Romania to the United Nations. Most recently Hobbs reportedly occupied about 30 percent of the townhouse for his living space and used the remainder for commercial space, however, the property has the potential to be converted back into a single-family home.

Adam Modlin of Modlin Group represented the seller and the buyer, who remained anonymous.

Maroon 5’s lead vocalist and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, purchased a $52 million mansion in the celebrity hot spot of Montecito, California beneath the Santa Ynez mountains at the end of March. The 10,000-square-foot mansion in the Virginia countryside style was previously owned by actor Rob Lowe and his wife, makeup artist and jewelry designer Sheryl, who purchased the land for the home in 2005 and constructed the property.

Levine and Prinsloo bought the estate known as “Oakview” from healthcare private equity executive Jack McGinley and his wife Julie, who took ownership of the property in 2020. The deal was conducted off-market so limited details were available including what, if any, kinds of upgrades were made to the home in the brief time it was owned by the McGinleys.
The purchase by Levine and Prinsloo was just another in the couple’s pattern of buying high-end homes and flipping them for a profit in a relatively short period. In 2018 they bought a Beverly Hills mansion for $33.9 million then sold it one year later for $42.5 million, in 2021 they purchased a Montecito estate for $22.7 million then sold it three months later for $28.5 million, and then in May the couple sold their Pacific Palisades estate for $1 million up from the $31.95 million they paid for it in 2018.

Only about one month after purchasing their new Montecito home Levine and Prinsloo sold their Los Angeles mansion in Pacific Palisades for $51 million. The sales price brought the couple a $19 million profit, after purchasing the home for about $31.95 million from Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in 2018.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency represented the listing. The buyer could not be immediately identified.

The unique property includes a five-bedroom main house, a four-bedroom guest cottage, a wellness building, a swimming pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, and city-to-ocean views on over three acres of land.

Cuando la heredera del petróleo de Texas, Thompson, vendió su mansión de Aspen antes mencionada por $ 60 millones a los Lemkins, ella siguió adelante y compró otra casa en la montaña con un precio considerable a unas pocas millas del centro de Aspen por $ 51 millones, lo que permitió que su nombre apareciera dos veces en esta lista .

Thompson compró su nueva casa al capitalista de riesgo Lawrence F. De George, quien construyó la propiedad hace unos 16 años. La agente de cotización Carrie Wells de Coldwell Banker Mason Morse representó a De George.

La Casa De George abarca aproximadamente 15,000 pies cuadrados e incluye una sala de cine al estilo del viejo Hollywood, un par de ascensores de vidrio y un sistema que bombea oxígeno al dormitorio principal para combatir los efectos de la gran altitud.

No, you don’t need to freak out over Facebook’s new listings rule

Is it over for real estate agents to post their listings on Facebook? Here’s what’s going on. So you may have gotten an email over the last few days, if you’re a real estate agent, saying that you cannot post real estate listings to Facebook anymore, and you might have freaked out.

Here’s what this means. The change that’s happening to Facebook is that you cannot post your listings to Facebook Marketplace through your business page. That’s the only change that’s happening.

So can you still post your listings to your Facebook business page? Yes. You can also still link to your website. You can still post photos of your listings on your business page. You can still post videos, Reels, Stories, and all of that. Facebook Live can still happen on your Facebook business page.

The only change is if you’re posting rentals or properties through Facebook Marketplace, you have to do so through your personal profile, not your business page. That’s it. This has caused a lot of concern, but that’s all that this email means.

Wisconsin experts predict 2023 inflation, employment, housing trends

APPLETON – In November, the Wisconsin Department of Revenue released a forecast wherein IHS Markit, a provider of information, analytics, and solutions for governments and financial markets, predicted a slight recession in the last quarter of 2022 and continuing into the first half of 2023.

“Inflation continues to be the largest downside risk to the economic outlook,” it stated.
It is now projected that the Consumer Price Index — a measure of the average change over time in the prices paid by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services — will rise 4.3% next year.

Over the past 12 months, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an increased CPI of 6.8% in the Midwest region. The bureau also reported an increase of 11.7% in food prices, and an increase in energy prices of 11%, due to an increase in the price of gasoline.

Brad Tank, an investment management expert and University of Wisconsin-Madison alumnus, thinks federal officials will be successful in limiting inflation in 2023.

Tank explained in a recent UW Now livestream, “Predictions for 2023,” that he expects inflation to remain above 4% up until the middle of 2023. The rate most likely wouldn’t hit 2% until 2024.

Inflation, he said, is most likely to continue due to factors that coincided with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“A big part of that is the demographic shift affecting workforces for major world powers including the United States and China,” Tank said.

Aside from a slight recession, here’s what economic changes are predicted for Wisconsin for 2023:

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue predicts employment throughout the state will post small declines of 0.4%, fluctuating around 4.6% in 2023.
Through October, the Wisconsin unemployment rate sat at 48,800 jobs, which was 1.6% below its rate before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in February 2020.
Nationally, there will be less job hopping and fewer counteroffers — offers made by an employer, such as a better salary package or career prospects — in 2023 as demand for talent and the supply for candidates becomes steady, Forbes predicted in November.

“Salary rises will be less common, too,” Forbes wrote. “Many employers have already increased wages over the past 12 months — a shortfall of talent left them with little choice. So, any pay raises they can afford to award in the future will be marginal.”

The state’s Department of Revenue reported a 7.8% wage growth in Wisconsin in 2022.
“Generally, we are seeing many of the same hiring trends from the past two years persist into 2023,” said Jeffrey Sachse, director of the Center for Customized Research and Services (CCRS) and economic development at UW-Oshkosh. “Companies are hiring across most staffing levels with a focus in health care and manufacturing on entry level workers, citing attendance and time management as key concerns. This continues to drive up wage rates in a more competitive environment.”

Sachse said while there are some genuine concerns for a recession in 2023, it is unlikely that there will be large layoffs locally, because many firms are already understaffed.

“I have seen projections recently of the local unemployment rate increasing to as high as 4.5% by the end of 2023, but this is still well below historical averages,” Sachse said.
The Department of Revenue predicts professional and business services will face the largest decline in the new year. The construction industry will be the second most affected, as high interest rates are expected to continue reducing home affordability, resulting in a decline in residential investments. Manufacturing jobs are also expected to decline within the next two years.

Ryan Long, a Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development regional economist in the Bay Area and Fox Cities, said its most recent data from August showed 1.73 job openings per unemployed job seekers. Long said this ratio has been on a downward trend since April.
Long said that some challenges the workforce had been facing pre-pandemic and throughout 2021 were also due to long-term demographic patterns such as an aging population, declining labor force participation rate, below-replacement fertility and minimal net migration. These patterns will also need to be addressed in order to bring the workforce back to a stable market.
This year proved to be difficult for people looking to buy homes, as demand to purchase became greater than the inventory of houses available.

Because of low inventory, those who did find a house often had to put in an offer higher than usual.
According to the Wisconsin Realtors Association, Wisconsin inventories remained very tight, in March 2022 there continued to be just 2.1 months of available supply. Rapidly rising prices and a significant uptick in mortgage rates, 4.17% in March, has led to a reduction in housing affordability across the state by 19.5%.

Michael Sewell, president of Realtors Association of Northeast Wisconsin, said local interest rates have gone up significantly in the past year and are about the highest they have been in 20 years.
However, Sewell said he believes interest rates will begin to decline in the beginning of the year.
“I think, probably, by the middle of the year, they’ll be around 5½ (percent), and I think they’re going to hover between 5 and 5½ for a while,” Sewell said.
According to the Wisconsin Realtors Association, the average cost of a home in November 2022 was $259,950, a jump from $240,000, the average cost in November 2021. The number of sales averaged 5,400, down from the 7,905 sales in November 2021.

The report shows that in Outagamie County, sales have continued to decrease since 2020 while prices have steadily increased since then.
Trends in the national real estate market doesn’t necessarily reflect local real estate market, Sewell said. Although the market is still seeing high interest rates, Sewell said the Northeast Wisconsin market is much more stable than many other parts of the country.

“The reason we’ve had issues the last couple years is because inventory’s low,” Sewell said. “There’s much higher demand for houses than we have supply.”
Sewell said, going into 2023, there will be an increase in inventory over the course of the year, but demand will continue to be greater than supply.
Part of the reason inventory is low is because people are hesitant to move or purchase a new home because their current interest rate is lower than what the average rate is now, Sewell said.

“But I think as interest rates start to loosen up after the first of the year that we will see more of those people decide to put their house on the market and that will help our inventory as well,” Sewell said.

Foreclosure trends will change going into the new year as well. For the past two years, foreclosure rates had declined due to homeowners receiving extra funds from forgiveness programs put in place by the pandemic.

Now that most of the programs are done, foreclosure rates will increase bringing them slightly higher than what the normal rate has been in the past.
“Back in the last recession, in 2008, 2009, 2010, people’s houses weren’t worth what they owed on them,” Sewell said.
Now, most homeowners have significant equity, meaning even if they’re struggling to make payments they have the option to sell their home, pay off their loan and move forward.
Despite these changes, Sewell believes Northeast Wisconsin will have a more normalized market moving forward into 2023.

“There won’t be as many as many sales as we’ve had the last couple of years, but I think that it’ll still be a very solid market in the coming year,” Sewell said.

Housing Market 2023: Where It’s Headed, According To Experts

Han sido unos años salvajes para el mercado inmobiliario. Si está pensando en comprar o vender en 2023, probablemente se sienta un poco preocupado por el proceso.

Más: En qué se diferenciará la recesión de 2023 de la de 2008 y cómo debe prepararse de manera diferente

No hay forma de saber exactamente qué desafíos enfrentará, pero desea estar lo más preparado posible. GOBankingRates habló con varios expertos en bienes raíces para averiguar cómo creen que podría ser el mercado inmobiliario de este año.

Buyers Will Get Some Leverage
“The market has shifted to a buyer-friendlier market, but sellers still hold a lot of cards,” said Lindsay McLean, co-founder and CEO of HomeLister. “As mortgage rates rise and affordability dips, sellers may have to shift their expectations to match the changing market — and buyers [will] have more leverage.”

Despite that, she said the market will return to a more balanced position than in previous years.

“Buyers are finding they can once again buy without waiving contingencies and sellers are starting to offer concessions,” she said. “However, many sellers hold low-interest-rate mortgages and are not under pressure to sell and so may hold out for the offers that they want.”

Los precios de las viviendas podrían disminuir
El mercado de la vivienda ha cambiado considerablemente, pero McLean dijo que aún es difícil decir si esto significa que los precios de las viviendas disminuirán en 2023.

“Si bien los precios han caído desde donde estaban en su punto máximo en esta época el año pasado, todavía están por encima de los precios de 2021 en muchos mercados”, dijo. “Las tasas hipotecarias se han estabilizado un poco en diciembre y la actividad de las ofertas parece reanudarse, ya que los compradores están volviendo lentamente a la mesa”.
