January 2007 Market Statistics

Real Estate Agent with Terrie O'Connor Realtors

Despite my best attempt at publishing and truly understanding these numbers, I continue to get confused whenever I attempt to update these monthly numbers. 


I refer back to Kristal Krafts post on Absorption Rate here and calculate the following numbers prescribed but I am still baffled.  I “feel” the market improving but these numbers are telling a different story. 


                        # of Active # Under Contract            Absorption %               Weeks

Ridgewood                   101                  44                   31%                           37


Saddle River                 56                    10                  143%                          24        


Bergen County            3330                  848                   43%                          17


The median price of homes on the market in each of these areas:

Ridgewood                  $580,000

Saddle River             $1,899,000                                                                              

Bergen County             $470,000


If I don’t start to make sense of these numbers on a month-to-month basis sometime soon, I am going to stop this reporting.  It’s not due to lack of interest, I would just like these numbers to be a meaningful reflection on the market and I’m not getting that!         


Advice and/or insight would be welcome….so feel free to comment away!
