Bedminster NJ Real Estate Market Update AUGUST 2014

The numbers for Bedminster are somewhat of a mixed bag for AUGUST 2014.

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume has increased modestly by eleven (11) units or (6%) – Last year: August 2012 thru August 2013  (187 homes sold) as compared to the current period: August 2013 thru August 2014 with (198 homes sold).

  • The August year-to-date numbers are up slightly by one (1) unit or (1%) when compared to last year’s year-to-date total of (133) homes sold to the current period with (134) homes sold.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last August (30) homes sold, as compared to this August decreased significantly by twelve (12) units or (40%) with a total of (18) homes sold.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of August 2014 is running significantly lower by sixteen (16) units or (57%) as compared to last year’s volume which was (28) units versus the current year’s volume of (12) units.  This big drop in the backlog of pending sales may have a negative impact on the Bedminster market at least in the short term.

  • 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 3.8 months, which is down slightly (2%) when compared to last year’s inventory at 3.9 months. Basically this indicates that the Bedminster market has a significant shortage of inventory for Buyers to choose from and is even less “balanced” now than in prior years. The result of this condition will no doubt keep prices up (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.

The Bedminster market continues to roll along at a very brisk pace and at the same time is significantly outperforming the neighboring towns in Somerset Hills. The biggest driver of this market is the high level of demand running directly up against a very low level of inventory.  One sign of caution is the significant drop in the number of pending sales (down this month by 57%). We will have to keep an eye out for this same category next month in order to see if a trend is developing.

With that said, sellers will continue to remain in control in the Bedminster market and we can expect to see modest price increases (especially in certain neighborhoods) as long as this pace continues and inventory remains low.
