The New Jersey Skinny - Report for August, 2015
Supply and Demand
Last months numbers are a lesson in simple economics.  Overall, supply was down with fewer listings on the market.  However, the number of pending sales and closings was up slightly.  This combination is a forecast for rising home prices.
The sales data did bear this result, with prices creeping up, a higher list-to-sales-price ratio, and a decrease in the absorption rate.
Keep an eye on stats such as Days on Market, Absorption Rate, and List Price-to-Sales Price Ratio for insights into where things are headed throughout the year.

Cranford, NJ Market Report
April, 2014
Spring has started to appear, and the Cranford, NJ real estate market is finally starting to see the signs.  While the brutal winter had fewer Sellers putting their homes on the market, leading to a shortage of inventory for the many Buyers looking, more properties are finally starting to become available.  This is leading to a little more balanced market.

Westfield, NJ Market Update
February, 2014
The hot Westfield, NJ real estate market cooled off just a bit in January (but then again, EVERYTHING cooled off in January!!), with fewer closed sales of single family homes than the previous month.  Additionally, year-over-year closed sales for January were down.
This is certainly not a surprise, coming off of the pending sales that went under contract during the traditionally slower holiday season.
Oddly enough, while the day-on-market went up significantly, the list-to-sale price ratio also inched up.  These to indicators are often tied together, with overpriced homes sitting on the market not realizing sales … (1 comments)

Cranford, NJ Market Report
January, 2014
The holiday season of 2013 was good for the Cranford, NJ real estate market, which finished strong.  And the outlook for 2014 remains positive.
Indicators continue to show that we are in a Seller's Market and the real estate recovery moves on.
Year-over-year, closed sales outpaced new listings.  In other words, more homes came off the market than went on.  Simple supply and demand tells us that this tends to increase prices.  And, this was the case.  The median home price was up almost 10% from December of 2012, to $425,000.
Once again, the absorption rate … (0 comments)

market report: Cranford, NJ Market Report - November, 2013 - 12/16/13 01:58 AM
The real estate market in Cranford, NJ remains strong, even during what is typically a slower holiday period.
The key indicators are in the Single Family Home sales.  The “absorption rate”, which is the month’s supply of inventory if no new homes came on the market is down 17% year-over-year, from 4.1 to 3.4 months.  An “even” market is 6months.  More than 6 months tends toward a Buyer’s market and less leans toward a Seller’s market.

This is further evidenced by the median sales price being up 11% from November 2012, from $380,000 to $422,000 and the Days On Market is … (2 comments)
