MNS Real Estate’s rental report for Queens is based on a cross-section of data from available listings and priced under $10,000, with ultraluxury property omitted to obtain a true monthly rental average. The data is aggregated from the MNS proprietary database and sampled from a specific mid-month point to record current rental rates offered by landlords during that month before being combined with information from the REBNY Real Estate Listings Source (RLS), OnLine Residential (OLR.com) and R.O.L.E.X. (Real Plus).
