Welcome to our Bloomfield "State of the Market" article for November 2009. Recently, we have seen a lot of activity in Bloomfield and this is largely due to the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit. The recent extension through April for the credit will only further assist in real estate absorption. There have been many requests for information on single family homes and multi-family homes around the Brookdale Park area of town, on and around Watchung Ave. Great choice and if you give us a call we can tell you a few important details about the area and what we can achieve for a pricepoint.

In 2009 (Jan-Oct), 212 single family homes have sold with an average sales price of $300,882, a modest 8% drop since last year. We are seeing a much clearer picture in the market and prices seem to have stabilized, indicative by 2009 month over month activity improvements.

From January 1 to November 1, 2009, 44 multi family homes sold at an average price of $271,199, nearly a 25% drop. We have seen recent price stability for the multi-family market as well due to the low prices and homeowners realizing a small balance on their mortgage after collecting rental income.
There are currently 94 multi-family homes for sale in Bloomfield. The average listing/asking price of these multi family homes are $356,345, however there are plenty of deals at or under $300,000 for conservative shoppers or real estate investors.
During the month of October 2009, only 5 multi-family homes sold in Bloomfield. The average price of multi's sold was $272,000, so it seems that the multi family homes under $300,000 are selling the quickest.
