Fewer sellers dropped their listing prices in July and Manhattan continued to see the most cuts, according to RealtyHop's monthly price drop report.

Upper East Side-Carnegie Hill came in second with a total of 125, down from 162 previously. For the first time in recent months, an outer-borough neighborhood made the list: Forest Hills, Queens, which took fifth with 94 drops.
