Bonus Trouncing

New, 35 comments

Bloomberg asks the experts how the drop in Wall Street bonuses (AIG aside) will impact the already hurting Manhattan real estate market: "A 50 percent reduction in bonuses would push down prices by about 24 percent from their peak through mid-2010, said Sam Chandan, chief economist at property research firm Real Estate Economics LLC in New York. That would mark the biggest slide since 1980 when appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. started tracking Manhattan prices. 'This will probably be the worst price correction the city has seen,' said Marisa Di Natale, senior economist at Moody’s in West Chester, Pennsylvania."
