The scarcity of residential properties has boosted some of our benchmarks, although commercial apartment valuations continue to weaken. We see fewer land transactions above our benchmarks, and more below. Other commercial valuations have held steady among a wave of distressed sales.

The darkest clouds looming over apartment valuations are clearing favorably as demand for other asset classes has been enough to satisfy lower supply. Troubled regional banks and moderating inflation could signal the top of the interest rate cycle which would remove another cloud from The Bronx real estate market. 13 metrics remain unchanged after our benchmark review which resulted in 4 increases and 9 reductions.
