Amazon employees are already buying apartments in New York City, local brokers told The Wall Street Journal.

In the week since Amazon announced plans to open headquarters in Long Island City, a neighborhood in Queens, New York, brokers say they've seen a spike in interest from employees at the e-commerce giant.

Interest in Long Island City real estate is skyrocketing more generally, sparking concerns that rents are going to increase.

Amazon employees are apparently eager to get a head start on the New York City real estate game.

Condo sales in Long Island City are soaring following the announcement that the Queens, New York neighborhood would host part of Amazon's HQ2, The Wall Street Journal reports.

According to The Journal, one brokerage firm sold 150 units in four days last week — 15 times it usual volume — after Amazon announced plans to open a headquarters in Long Island City.
