For New York City, 2017 was definitely … a year. The subway broke down, the ferries came to new places, the mayor got reelected, and real estate got weird. Luxury home prices softened, while competition grew even hotter for affordable places to live within the five boroughs. (Both are trends we expect to continue in 2018.) To sum up the last 12 months, here’s a graphic that shows what you looked at and loved on StreetEasy in 2017. Click the image to enlarge, and find more details below.

The Busiest Day on StreetEasy in 2017

You can almost hear the buzz of new people moving to the city, graduates eyeing an exit from their dorm rooms, leases expiring, summer plans being hatched. The busiest day on StreetEasy last year came just before the peak of moving season, on June 6, 2017. How long ago that seems now, in snowy January!
