HOT MARKETS

Morris County, New Jersey – I love it when a plan comes together. I have to say, after years of tough news, it is nice to see the markets moving in the right direction again. Being in the Real Estate business for 23 years, I love to crunch Real Estate numbers. I compare things like pricing, days on market, property types, towns, etc… I compare them year to year, quarter to quarter, month to month, town to town, and even State to State. I have been noticing some interesting things in the towns in Morris County lately. Year over year, we are seeing increases in average sales prices and decreases in days on market. All great signs in Real Estate. We really began to see improvement starting in the spring of 2013. People were starting to hop off the fence because they felt we were at a bottom and interest rates were indicating that they might go up. We continued to sell strongly into the end of the year of 2013 but there was a significant slowdown over the winter. Especially January and February due to the horrific winter we had. As an example, Mount Olive averaged 22 closings per month over the last twelve months but only closed 11 and 14 in January 2014 and February 2014 respectively. Now Mount Olive is back on track with 25 closings in May of 2014. There were similar statistics for most towns in Morris County last month. One thing to watch right now is interest rates. They took a nice dip in May but are starting to creep up slowly. That has many buyers ready to jump, but the inventory is getting slim. This bodes well for sellers. Which is good news after the tough time they had in previous years. If you have a nice home that is priced fairly in Morris County, you had better be prepared to move if you put it on the market. Truthfully, if we do not have any major economic crises in the United States, the price of homes will most likely continue to go up over the short term and likely will not come back down for some time. I don’t see us going sky high like we did last time, but I don’t see us going down anytime soon. The Real Estate Market in Morris County has stabilized quite well. Of course, all that can change in the twinkling of an eye. You just never know. I think we all can’t help but watch the markets with a cautious eye after what we have been through. The next 30 to 60 days are actually a good time for both Sellers and Buyers. The Sellers should finally be able to get a decent price for their homes and the buyers can still lock into very low interest rates. I am concerned that all this is going to push interest rates up. The powers that be will not want housing to move too high, so any further move upward in pricing will be used as a catalyst to pull back on the bond purchasing that the federal government is currently doing to keep rates low.
