Let's take a look at even more local real estate data within Monroe County, and talk about Stroudsburg. The Borough of Stroudsburg is the county seat, and has a beautiful downtown and courthouse square! It is also just the 4th exit off Route 80 as you travel west from New Jersey, making it an easy commuting location.
In 2010, the average sold price in the Borough of Stroudsburg for residential homes was $142,237, which is nearly 7.5% less than the county average. However, the average days on the market in the borough was 101, compared to the county average of 125. And although the average sale price has dropped nearly 23% from 2009, it continues to be a desirable place to live, due to all of the conveniences it offers.
Because the borough is a smaller area compared to some of the townships in Monroe County, there are significantly less homes that become available. Currently, there are only 25 homes in the Borough of Stroudsburg for sale, ranging in price from $42,000 (a condo in a 55+ community) to $450,000 (in the prestigious Hills section).
