Bedminster NJ Real Estate Market Update AUGUST 2015


The numbers for Bedminster are mostly down for AUGUST 2015.

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume has dropped by twenty-five (25) units or (13%) – Last year: August 2013 thru August 2014  (198) homes sold as compared to the current period: August 2014 thru August 2015 with (173) homes sold.

  • The August year-to-date numbers are down by thirteen (13) units or (10%) when compared to last year’s year-to-date total of (134) homes sold to the current period with (121) homes sold.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring this August was seventeen (17) units as compared to last year’s volume of eighteen (18) units is down by one (1) unit or (6%).

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of August 2015 is running at twenty-five (25) units, which is thirteen (13) units more than last year at this same time in 2014.

  • The supply of available inventory (the time it would take to sell all of the homes currently on the market) as of the end of August is at 5.4 months, which is up by (38%) when compared to last year’s inventory at 3.9 months. Basically this indicates that the Bedminster market has shifted from a strong seller’s market towards a more balanced market where both buyers and sellers are on equal footing. As long as the inventory remains around 6.0 months prices should remain steady or slightly higher at least for the near term as compared to other surrounding towns where there is more inventory available.

Note: A “balanced” market is considered to have a 6 month supply. Anything below that amount would be considered a “low” inventory and thus less than balanced. This market condition typically favors Sellers.  Anything above a 6 month supply would result in a “high” inventory of homes on the market and typically favors Buyers.

It is clear by now that the local Bedminster market is in a “cooling” period. on a very positive note however, the number of homes Pending or Under Contract is up dramatically by (13) units or (108%) as compared to this same period from last year. The overall inventory is now slightly below 6 months for the fourth time this year and is close to the level of a balanced market representing a clear shift. Interest rates are at near record lows with the general state of the economy slowly improving, however NJ is lagging behind it’s neighboring states and there is still a considerable volume of foreclosure properties winding their way through the process before we can safely say the market is on a solid footing for a complete recovery.
