The international investor has a lot to consider these days: the continued volatility of world economies, the challenges of interpreting risk, the increased austerity surrounding local government, higher taxes, and the need to seek higher returns in a low interest rate environment. This sophisticated tier of investors is actively avoiding economic uncertainty, and is readily able to interpret the metrics in order to navigate the shifting global landscape. With no short-term end in sight to worldwide economic instability, over the past several years, investors have developed a sense of security in tangible assets—luxury real estate in particular— and embraced the asset class quickly and enthusiastically. Their swift singularity of purpose has created heated demand in the marketplace, and their buying power attracted significant attention, causing a series of ripples in the luxury real estate arena.

LUXURY REAL ESTATE AS THE NEW GLOBAL ASSET CLASS THE LUXURY REAL ESTATE PARADOX

After a turbulent decade of global economic growth fueled by easy access to credit and a speculative short-term outlook, it may seem ironic that investors would come to view luxury real estate as a safe haven, considering that current conditions are the direct result of a global credit hangover; but this time around, luxury real estate investments are being financed by cash with a long-term perspective, unencumbered by the legacy of bad lending decisions made during the credit boom.

As global wealth has expanded, worldwide interest in luxury real estate—especially in the coastal US markets, including Manhattan, The Hamptons, Boston, Washington DC, and Miami—has grown alongside it and, over the past several years, the heightened awareness of this new asset class has continued to evolve. Current investors are seeking long-term value and looking to housing markets that show stability and potential for sustained growth.

FROM KNIGHT FRANK’S GLOBAL CITIES SURVEY:

LOCATION, LIFESTYLE, LEVERAGE

The survey examines four key location themes that matter most to the world’s wealthy:

While particular needs and preferences are not universal amongst all luxury real estate investors across all locations, a consistent general framework for their decisionmaking process has emerged. Previously, the time-tested 3L real estate mantra reigned supreme—“location, location, location.” But today’s luxury real estate investor is no longer limited by the confines of a generic geographic ideal; property demand has become more sophisticated than that. In the current era of real estate, the 3L mantra has changed to signify the new criteria: “location, lifestyle, leverage.”

LOCATION

A sense of place and safety is definitively a critical consideration and the first determinant when making a purchase decision. In luxury real estate, this emphasis on location has become a question of “core” versus “emerging” markets. A core market is an area that is considered well established and with proven stability, and is often populated with properties that offer features and amenities above and beyond the norm. An emerging market is much more volatile, subject to sharp declines when a market cools and large gains when a market heats up. Opportunities in core markets are severely limited, which continuously poses a tremendous challenge for developers seeking to create new products.

LIFESTYLE

Over the past decade, building amenities and neighborhood features have become front and center factors in the purchase decision. Consumers not only consider whether a property is a solid long-term financial investment, but also whether it will offer the right surroundings during their occupancy. With this in mind, US metropolitan markets have seen a rise in new urbanism, where new residential developments have revitalized entire commercial districts; the influx of new luxury properties has prompted improvements to and additions of basic everyday support services within walking distance of these projects. For example, Midtown Manhattan is New York City’s central business district, with the adjacent Upper East and West Side residential neighborhoods to the north. Recently, some of the most highly sought after new luxury condominiums—all strongly favored by international investors—including One57, 15 Central Park West, and 432 Park Avenue, were developed in these areas. These successful projects have essentially formed a new asset class designed specifically to meet the evolving demands of increasingly sophisticated global buyers, and in turn triggered additional development in the area. New York City has responded to the continued demand by championing an upzoning plan that allows taller residential and commercial buildings in the district.

1

LEVERAGE

Since the large majority of sales in this luxury tier are from all-cash investors, access to credit for individual purchase has not been a driving force of the luxury real estate market; however, low interest rates and tight credit remain critical economic factors, as record-low interest rates across the globe are pushing many investors to seek higher returns on their investments.

2

Aside from selling it later down the road, housing is an asset that can also be leveraged by physically occupying and enjoying it, which an investor can factor into his or her assessment of the return on the investment. New York City’s relative affordability compared to other major world housing markets, such as London or Hong Kong, has been a distinct incentive for buyers from emerging Asian and South American economies to invest, in addition to the existing demand from European buyers.

THE LONG TERM

The evidence is apparent—the noticeable rise of new development activity across US housing markets makes clear the heightened awareness of luxury real estate as a new asset class. Among the key drivers of the demand that initiated this phenomenon—low interest rates, increasing global wealth, tight credit, economic volatility—none is expected to change significantly in the near future. Based on current conditions and expectations, the luxury real estate market is an asset class that’s here to stay.

This makes it more crucial than ever for buyers to be prepared in advance, so that they can put the most attractive offer on the table and increase their chance of winning the bid. Here’s my checklist:

1. Save up and build a big deposit that will cover a down payment.

2. Tidy up your credit. Pay off your credit cards, and address any outstanding debts or accounts on your credit report.

3. Sort out your paperwork; for W2-paid employees, this includes 2 years worth of W2s, one month’s worth of paystubs, and 2 months worth of your most recent complete bank statements. Self-employed individuals should have 2 years worth of tax returns and all pages of your 2 most recent monthly bank statements.

4. Find a lender who understands the property. If you’re using an Elliman broker, they often work hand-in-hand with our Private Mortgage Bankers, which helps streamline the entire process.

5. Get pre-approved by a lender before you make an offer.

PURCHASE PRICE $1,275,000

ELLIMAN: Getting a mortgage can be a daunting process. What does DE Capital do to alleviate the stresses involved? ACE: I happen to come from a hospitality background, so I have a deep-seated understanding of how important customer service is to a business, and I feel that DE Capital’s commitment to providing a premium customer experience is what separates us from other lenders. We hear all the time how difficult it is to get a mortgage in today’s market, but I truly feel that this is a misconception; it’s only difficult when clients are unprepared or uneducated about the home buying process. At DE Capital, we believe in asking questions from the start, and solving any prospective issues up front. We’re in constant communication with all parties involved—our clients, their realtors, the bank attorney, the seller’s attorney, and the buyer’s attorney. It’s not just about selling mortgages; it’s about convenience and peace of mind.

ELLIMAN: Everyone is talking about the recent influx of foreign buyers looking at New York Real Estate as a safe investment. Are you seeing this trend on the financing end?

LOAN AMOUNT $1,020,000

INTEREST RATE

4% at 30-year fixed

MONTHLY PAYMENT $4,869.64

ACE: The number of foreign buyers has dramatically increased over the last few years. While many of them are purchasing with all cash, it’s definitely possible for those who are looking for financing to leverage their investments to do so. But they must be prepared to put anywhere from 30-50% down, establish meaningful domestic banking relationships, and provide income assets along with credit data from their home countries. My best advice for foreign buyers looking to finance is to start well in advance of placing a bid, and to work with an experienced lender who is fluent in foreign national lending.

Real estate today has become an experience that goes far beyond a mere transaction. The industry has evolved into a highly visual category, alongside design, art, and fashion, and property photography has been elevated to shelter-magazine quality, showcasing homes in dramatic new ways. In this aesthetics-driven era, modern consumers seek indepth expertise and an understanding of their lifestyle. They gravitate towards spaces that are inspired in both form and function. And real estate offices are no exception.

MAKING BOLDMOVES IN GREENWICH VILLAGE

INTRODUCING 774 BROADWAY

DOUGLAS ELLIMAN’S NEW GREENWICH VILLAGE STOREFRONT is a true testament to this new vision

of the real estate experience, arriving in a bold fashion that befits the iconic neighborhood. Located at 774 Broadway, arguably New York’s most storied street, the innovative Downtown flagship is a state-of-the art office space designed using cutting-edge visual display technology and created to the exacting standards of contemporary workspaces. “With the company having just celebrated its 100 year anniversary, we wanted Elliman’s storefront and interiors to evoke the sense of an established New York company with a distinct modern vision,” explains Thomas Hickey, AIA, NCARB and Edward Yedid of GRADE Architecture + Interior Design, the firm behind the new location’s design. The defining feature of the new Broadway location is the dramatic 8x12 foot LCD wall that anchors the storefront and displays crisp, clear images of extraordinary properties, offering a gallery experience for passing pedestrians and motorists. Inside, a custom reception area with a stunning kiosk bar allows customers to browse listings at their leisure amongst statuary marble countertops, Tabu cerused white oak floors, and Weitzner wool flannel-paneled walls. “This space was designed so skillfully, and with such purpose. Everything was crafted with our consumer in mind,” says industry veteran Gary Cannata, who manages the new Broadway location. “It seamlessly blends modern technology and beautiful visuals, all with an inviting overtone.” From every angle, 774 Broadway is truly a bespoke office space that exemplifies Elliman’s commitment to redefining the industry standard for today’s consumer.

THE NEW ORDER


BEST IN BRAND—DOUGLAS ELLIMAN WON’T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY. THE REVAMPING OF THE DEVELOPMENT MARKETING GROUP OVER THE PAST 18 MONTHS HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER A TEAM OF LEADERS IN THE WORLD OF GLOBAL REAL ESTATE. ALREADY, THEY’RE TAKING THE NEW DEVELOPMENT SECTOR BY STORM.


LEADERSHIPSPOTLIGHT

The numbers are staggering. Since November of 2012, the Douglas Elliman Development Marketing team led by Susan de França has sold over $1 billion in property and signed projects with some of the top developers in the world.

T

he Witkoff Group at 150 Charles Street in the West Village, Ian Schrager at The Residences at the Miami Beach Edition, VE Equities at 250 Bowery, Forest City Ratner at the Penthouses at New York by Gehry—all stunning new

buildings designed by the most forward thinking architects on the planet. But design and development alone do not sell units. People do. And Douglas Elliman has extraordinary people. Their roster of brokers and real estate professionals includes some of the top household names in the realm of luxury of real estate. In a model de França created with Elliman’s Chairman, Howard Lorber, and CEO, Dottie Herman, these top agents work hand-inhand with new development teams to acquire, market, sell, and close deals on all new construction projects. “It’s a radically different approach,” says Lorber. “This is not the old model with on-site staff selling property. We’re making our agents an integral part of the process by tapping into their knowledge, experience, and client rolodexes. We have extraordinary inventory, and this is the powerful tool we’re using to sell it.” The innovative model stretches to South Florida, Puerto Rico, and parts of South America. No territory is uncharted for the Elliman team, whose client reach carries weight in China, Russia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. Already, Elliman Development Marketing has begun to dominate the Miami market, selling two beachfront properties heralded as the premier lifestyle experiences ever to be offered in a Miami condominium.

SUSAN DE FRANÇA  P RESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER DEVELOPMENT MARKETING

When Susan de França walks in a room, you know it, and then you don’t. Susan has extraordinary presence and an observing eye, but she listens so intently the room goes silent. Born, bred, and schooled in Manhattan, de França knows New York City like the back of her hand. “I get so much of my energy from New York,” she says, sitting in the conference room of Douglas Elliman’s New Development offices on Madison Avenue. “It’s a magical place where anything is possible.” Previously the President of Sales at Related Companies, the leading developer of luxury residences in the United States, de França presided over the firm’s entire sales portfolio, including Superior Ink in the West Village, Time Warner Center overlooking Central Park, and The Century in Los Angeles. Developers and buyers applaud her ability to manage large projects and the people on them. Her personal touch goes beyond attention to detail. “We’re not saving lives in real estate, but we’re certainly touching them,” she says. “A home is a place where someone should feel comfortable—where they can grow, and build families, and make memories. I take the responsibility of helping someone find a home very seriously.” Intensely competitive as the oldest of four children, all girls, de França understands the importance of each encounter. Whether closing a development deal on a private plane back from Aspen or

typical rental products were offering at the time. He was right. “We defined what a rental could be and wanted to be,” says Finn, who created the leasing and marketing strategy for the 1,200+ unit Silver Towers in Midtown and the 900+ unit New York by Gehry in the Financial District. “The idea was to modify the design criteria of the typical rental and infuse some of the condo philosophy.” Working with Forest City Ratner at New York by Gehry, Finn was able to brand and market a property that, at the time, would be known as the tallest residential building in North America and the top rental project in the world. “The developer had very high aspirations, being that Gehry was design-driven and costly to build. We had to set the market and prove why these apartments were worth such a significant premium. There were no comps to compare,” he says.

Karen is a real estate pro. She began her career with Related, working on Carnegie Park, and later worked with de França at the Sunshine Group before joining the Elliman team. Through it all, she’s learned that new development marketing has some quintessential truths. “When you sell, it has to come from your heart,” she says. “Your honesty, your integrity—people respond to that.” Quick-witted, Mansour can go from a conversation with a Czech investor thinking about buying a one-bedroom to giving straight facts to an Italian developer who wants to move his $17 million penthouse. She tells it like it is. “Location is always number one,” says Mansour, talking about what works in today’s new development buy/sell equation. “This time around, the market has reached another level of architecture and interior design. The finishes and floorplans have been elevated. The key, though, is knowing every piece of the puzzle—infrastructure, layouts—

Manhattan

THE TALLEST RESIDENTIAL BUILDING IN NORTH AMERICA BY THE WORLD’S MOST CELEBRATED LIVING ARCHITECT. Gehry’s design resulted in over 200 unique floor plans that each bring the drama of the dynamic exterior wall movement into residents’ private spaces. In the places where the façade undulates, the residential windows also move out into space – into the apex of the folds – to create free-form bay windows that can either be fitted with seating or left open to accommodate uniquely shaped dining or reading niches.

Thanks to a supercharged luxury segment and low vacancy rates, the rental markets in New York, the Hamptons, Long Island, and Westchester have been on fire, setting all-time records. We sat down with the Douglas Elliman rental experts to get their perspectives on their local rental markets and tips for finding the perfect rental home.

MARK MENENDEZ,

seems to have the best deals right now, and is definitely becoming more popular; Inwood, the northernmost neighborhood in Manhattan, also

has some really good price points; and Clinton and the Upper East Side have their share of good deals as well. The most expensive areas are Tribeca, the West Village, Soho, Noho, and the Gramercy area.


PAUL BRENNAN

REGION MANAGER, THE HAMPTONS “The Hamptons rental market is different from other regions because it’s seasonal, as opposed to year-round. There is inventory available, but only in the fall months before it gets scooped up. People often believe that search season for Hamptons summer rentals begins President’s Day Weekend, but the truth is that it’s actually much before then. Seasoned renters understand the brisk pace of the Hamptons market—they are willing to commit early, even though prices can be a tad more expensive, because the selection is greater. Waterfronts and oceanfront properties are the first to go.”

ELLIMAN: What areas would you recommend to aspirational first-time renters looking for a great summer rental deal in the Hamptons? PAUL BRENNAN: Montauk is very popular among the younger set—there’s a huge nightlife scene, great restaurants, and pristine beaches that are good for surfing. It’s as far east as you can go, so it’s taken some time to catch up to the rest of the Hamptons, but it’s definitely becoming increasingly popular. Prices in Noyack, which is in between Southampton and Sag Harbor, and Springs, a neighborhood within East Hampton with its own school district, are automatically lower than they would be elsewhere in the Hamptons, because both areas are north of the highway and therefore not as close to the beach. But both areas still offer beautiful homes, including waterfront properties, and are still relatively close to shopping districts.

CRAIG AND WENDY SANDERS ELLIMAN RENTALS, LONG ISLAND

“The rental market on Long Island is booming right now—the demand for quality, well-priced units far exceeds supply. Renters are willing to pay a premium to meet their higher standards of living; they’re opting for full-service buildings or lifestyle-oriented communities, and location is key. We’re also experiencing a surge in relocation clients who have recently been employed in Nassau or Suffolk County; those tenants are demanding updated merchandise and newer CLASSIC OCEANFRONT BEACH HOUSE
