Project Description:

Clarendon was awarded a contract with the New York City office of the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide Section 8 Rent Comparability Studies for the New City Metro Area (Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island), Long Island Counties (Nassau, Suffolk), Westchester, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan Counties.

Section 8 laws and administrative procedures require HUD to obtain and review Rent Comparability Studies (RCS) when initially renewing most Section 8 contracts and when processing some rent increase using the Annual Adjustment Factors. The market rents resulting from these studies determine the rents owners can receive and, hence greatly influence whether an owner will renew and continue providing assisted housing or opt-out of the Section 8 contract and convert to unassisted, market rent housing. The market rents set in these studies also drive HUD’s outlays for Section 8 project-based subsidy.

Market Overview:

The New York Metropolitan Area is ethnically and geographically diverse, including the largest city in the United States – New York City.  The regional economy is the largest in the country and one of the most important in the world.  Finance, international trade, media, real estate, manufacturing, tourism, biotechnology, and education are leading industries. Other industries include entertainment and news media.  Along with its wealth, the area has a cost of living that is among the highest in the United States.

New York is one of the premier apartment markets in the country, featuring some of the highest rents and boasting an extremely affluent tenant base.  The outer boroughs of the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, traditionally more working class, have seen their rents rise in upturns as rising Manhattan rents drive even fairly upscale tenants to consider alternative locations.
