While all real estate is local, there are many positive signs being seen all across the Northeast and in other major regional markets across the country. In general, the Basking Ridge market seems to be holding it’s own with respect to a continuing and steady recovery with homes selling on average within 33 Days on Market with the local inventory at 4 months of supply, however over the last 6 months inventory has increased and Days on Market has gone down to 26 days on average.  After a very difficult winter, many experts predicted a very robust Spring selling season which has turned out to be somewhat of a mixed bag. While there has been an increase of new inventory entering the market, some of these sellers who are unfamiliar with this market have priced their homes significantly above market value. They seem to be thinking that the “good old days” are back, which could not be further from the truth. Buyers are still in control of this market.

Interest rates remain at or near historic lows and prices are still relatively low.  Combine these two factors with a relatively high inventory of homes to choose from and you have the perfect conditions for a robust and steady housing recovery. The general state of the economy along with a high rate of foreclosures and distressed properties are expected to keep prices low for several more years as older inventory eventually gets cleared out.
