RISMEDIA, July 18, 2008-The 2nd Quarter Prudential Douglas Elliman Long Island/Queens Market Overview shows the housing market in stable condition with slight increases in the price indicators, a modest decline in the number of sales and a slow down in the rise of inventory.

“The Queens and Long Island market is showing stability this quarter,” said Dottie Herman, president and CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman. “The demand for real estate is still strong, but the reality is that people are taking time with their purchases, and that the right pricing is key in selling a home. In upcoming quarters, we anticipate a market that is moving sideways, working towards further stability and eventual growth.”

“Price levels across the Long Island and Queens housing market were generally steady, while the pace of inventory added to the market slowed considerably,” said says Jonathan J. Miller, CRP, President/CEO of Manhattan residential real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel. “Sales in Nassau and Suffolk counties showed a modest increase in the number of sales for the first time in a year and a half, suggesting that conditions are somewhat better than anticipated.”
