A recent report claims that nearly 40,000 new market-rate apartments are coming to New York City in the next three years, but it s unclear if the spike in supply will overwhelm or barely faze the market.

In the next three years, more than 38,000 new apartments will be built in the city, the majority of which will be in Brooklyn and Queens, the Wall Street Journal reported. This year alone 14,686 new units will be completed, according to Ten-X, an online real estate company formerly known as

ump to 10 percent and such properties will see zero rent growth in 2019.

Others take a slightly less bleak outlook. Bob Knakal , chairman of New York investment sales at Cushman Wakefield, said that the increases 上海贵族宝贝论坛

he city s housing units and if anything, there is an undersupply of units.

Some also argue that even if the influx of new units curbs rent growth, landlords can bank on the gradual deregulation of rent-stabilized apartments.

In July, The Real Deal released the first-ever ranking of rental apartment landlords, finding that 20 landlords own 150,000 of the city s 2.2 million rent新上海贵族宝贝论坛
