Homes for Sale Margate NJ Real Estate Trends April 2015

Single Family

Homes for Sale in the Margate Real Estate Market are showing mixed improvement in April. April saw a 16.4% increase in new listings coming on the market over April of 2014. 64 newly listed single family homes where introduced to the market.

The number of newly listed Margate single family homes for sale in the year to date period ending April is up 4.9% over the previous year to date period.

Sold properties in April where down 30.8% with 9 sold single family properties. This brings the current total of sold properties for the year to date period to 47. This represents a 17.5% increase over the previous year to date period.

Combined, the total number of new listings of Margate NJ Homes for Sale and total inventory versus the number of properties being sold has allowed the months supply of inventory to decrease slightly to 16.8 months. This denotes an extremely strong Buyers Market.

Average Days on Market was up 71.6% to just under 5 months. Days on Market only reflects the properties that have sold and not an average of the total inventory that is currently available. Comparison of days on market on a month to month basis tends to be unreliable. The average days on market for the year to date period is 99, a 2.1% increase from  the previous year to date period.

Median Sale Prices for this April were up 35.6% from April 2014. The year to date Median Sale Price is up 5.8%. It should be interesting to watch the Margate Market over the next several months to see if it begins to gain some traction.

Mortgage Rates have receded and, at this writing, are in the 4% range. As can be seen in the below graph, we continue to stay in the same side ways price channel we've been in for the last three years.

With supply remaining high, demand light, and possible increasing interest rates, the Median Sale prices will struggle to gain ground.

Condos for Sale Margate, NJ - Real Estate Market Trends - March 2015

 

The Margate Real Estate Market for Condos is difficult to read for April. April saw a 7.1% increase in new listings coming on the market compared to April of 2014. 30 new condos where introduced to the market. Which is 2 more than April of 2014.

Combined, the total number of new Condo listings for Sale in Margate NJ  and total inventory versus the number of properties being sold, has decreased the months supply of inventory 21.1% to 21.1 months of supply. This still denotes an extremely strong Buyers Market but is a significant improvement from 26.4 months last April.

Average Days on Market for April is down 51.1% percent to 86 days. Considering the low number of sales, 1 or two transactions with quick cash closings can dramatically shift the Days on Market in a given month. The Days on Market for the year to date period is 138, just under 5 months. Days on Market only reflects the properties that have sold and not an average of the total inventory that is currently available. 

Median Sale Prices for this April are up 35.8% over April 2014. The year to date Median Sale Price is up 14.6%. Because of the very low number of condos being sold each month the Median Sale Prices tend to be unreliable on a month to month comparison. With 5 sold properties per month, a very low sale or a very high sale can cause a large deflection in the Median.

Hopefully Median Sale prices for condos will gain some traction in the Margate Market as the year progesses. 

Atlantic County unemployment continues to remain the highest in the State and higher than most areas of the country. 

Mortgage Rates are fairly stable and at this writing and are in the 4% range.
