The city side – facing Mamaroneck Ave. is an eight-story urban mid-rise with a sophisticated brick façade. The façade reflects the growing urbanization of the city and is just steps away from all the shopping and dining that downtown White Plains has to offer. The suburban side of the complex on Greenridge Ave. gives a bow to the Highlands community where it resides. The units on Greenridge are in a 3 story building with a townhouse-like facade. The low-rise portion surrounds tree-lined streets, single family homes as well as other low-rise condo complexes.
Jefferson Place – White Plains – Sales History – 2012 – 2016…
The charts below follow median sales prices for 2 BR units and total sales volume at Jefferson Place from 2012 (which marks the first year of the recovery) to the end of 2016. Jefferson Place underwent a substantial correction during the housing crisis. Prices have recovered nicely and are nearly touching their pre-crash high water marks. They aren’t there yet, but the pressure from low inventory combined with high demand is a powerful in this market. In 2016, the official median price for a 2-BR unit was $447,000 and $324,500 for a 1 BR unit.
This is generally good news all around. For buyers, the market has showed steady gains, but nothing “bubble-like” which bodes well for the future. For sellers it means that those who were under water are now coming out of the woods.
Actual pricing depends on many variables including square footage, view and location in the building. Upper floors traditionally selling for more, and the largest units that include 2 bedrooms and and den, tend to sell for a premium.
The view from 2016 shows a strong market with sales volume up substantially from the previous year and higher than at any time since the financial crisis. Median sales prices didn’t rise this past year. But on an individual level, but a large 2 BR unit sold for the highest price recorded since the 2008 crash. So prices are healthy and demand is high.

Everything points to a strong market, particularly for well presented listings.
