Bernardsville NJ Real Estate – Closed Sales for MAY 2012

 

Has the market really bottomed out yet? May’s results are mixed with sales up slightly for the month, but down slightly on the Year-to-Date. Read here to find out the very latest information on your local Bernardsville NJ Real Estate market!

 

June 10, 2012 – Closed Sales for the Month of May were a bit of a mixed bag in Bernardsville NJ this month. Sales increased slightly by 14% for the month of May as compared to this same period last year, (8 homes sold in 2012 vs 7 sold in 2011), however the Year-to-Date figures through May were down by 16% with 26 homes sold in 2012 vs 31 for the same period in 2011.

It is too soon to tell if the market is beginning to cool off after a somewhat fast start to the first quarter of 2012. We’ll have to see the results from June in order to get a better indication.

Prices are expected to remain at 2003 / 2004 levels and interest rates continue to hover at record low rates. There has rarely been a time where both prices AND interest rates were so 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 this inventory eventually gets cleared out.

There is a certain amount of “pent-up demand” on both the buying and selling side of this market as many buyers and sellers have been sitting on the fence for several years now and see that the pendulum is beginning to swing in the other direction and as a result, they are taking action.
