55+ Adult Community Homes for Sale Little Egg Harbor NJ June 2014 

Adult Communities

Homes for Sale in the Little Egg Harbor Township Adult Community Market is showing mixed signals as we reach the summer season. June saw a 11.8% increase in new listings coming on the market over June of 2013. 19 new adult community homes where introduced to the market.

The number of newly listed Homes for Sale in Little Egg Harbor Township Adult Communities in the 12 month period ending June is up 4.9% over the previous 12 month period.

Sold properties in June where down 52.2% with 11 sold adult community properties. This brings the current total of sold properties for the 12 month period to 131. An 11% decrease over the previous 12 month period.

Combined, the total number of newly listed Little Egg Harbor Township NJ Adult Community Homes for Sale and total inventory versus the number of properties being sold has allowed the months supply of inventory to reach 8 months. A 48.1% increase from June 2013. This denotes a buyer's market. When the Months Supply of Inventory exceeds 7 Months the market is considered to afford Buyers an advantage. 


Average Days on Market in June were down 7.9% to over 4 months. Days on Market only reflects the properties that have sold and not an average of the total inventory that is currently available. More sellers realize that the market is really soft and are pricing their homes aggressively in order to get them sold. Many are relocating out of state where housing costs are lower.

Average Days on Market for the running 12 month period is down 14.8% to 121 days.   

Median Sale Prices for this June were up 29.3% over the June 2013. Because of the very low number of adult community homes being sold each month the Median Sale Prices tend to be unreliable on a month to month comparison. With an average of only 11 sold properties per month, a very low sale or a very high sale can cause a large deflection in the Median. Over a 12 month running period, which provides a more reliable gauge, Median Sale Prices have increased 50.9%. It would seem that Median Sale prices of Homes for Sale in the Little Egg Harbor Township Adult Community Market will continue to gain some traction.

Unemployment continues to remain high in Little Egg Harbor Township. Unemployment is the biggest detriment to prices we face. If prospective buyers do not have decent paying, full time jobs, they do not qualify to purchase. The result is a much smaller pool of buyers and reduced demand. Adult community homes are less sensative to employment numbers because many occupants are retired. They are, however, subject to the trickle down effect. If prospective buyers for adult communities cannot sell their present home, they normally are not going to purchase.

Mortgage Rates also continue steady at this writing in the 4 and 4 1/2% range. 


As is evidenced by the above graph, Median Sale Prices continue to be irratic with little predictable stabilty on a month to month basis. It appears that overall the 55+ adult community prices are stabilizing and improving.

With supply reduced, demand slightly improved, and the fact that many adult community sales are not reliant on financing, the Median Sale prices may well have the ability to improve.
