Joseph, Sal Joseph & Salvatore Crifasi Though Queens is regarded as one of the cheaper boroughs when it comes to purchasing a home, a new study finds that prices in the “World’s Borough” are on the rise. According to Point2 Homes, an online real estate marketplace, Queens comes in 12th place out of 15 for the most expensive housing markets in North America. An analysis by Property Shark, an online property research tool, shows that the increasingly pricey Brooklyn is pushing more people toward Queens. “If these numbers are anything to go by, it seems that Queens is indeed flying a bit too close to Manhaan and Brooklyn’s bright sun, which in turn would explain the presence of the borough alongside some of the most expensive housing markets in North America,” Liviu Oltean of Property Shark said.-TIMES NEWSWEEKLY-MARCH 2016 Strong compeon in Manhaan and the Prospect Park submarket of Brooklyn may push more buyers to Queens, but there is a pull factor as well.
