Far Hills NJ Real Estate Market Update DECEMBER 2014

The numbers for Far Hills are mostly flat for DECEMBER 2014:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume decreased slightly by tw0 (2) units or (12%) – Last year: December 2012 thru December 2013  was at seventeen (17) homes sold as compared to the current period: December 2013 thru December 2014 with fifteen (15) homes sold.

  • The December year-to-date numbers were down similarly by two (2) units or (12%) when compared last year’s total of seventeen (17) homes sold to the current period with fifteen (15) homes sold. This marks the third month in a row of declining YTD sales volume.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales in December remained flat at three (3) units matching last year’s volume.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of December 2014 is up by one (1) unit from December 2013, with current volume standing at only one (1) unit.

  • 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 December is at 6.0 months, which is down by (39%) when compared to last year’s inventory at 9.8 months. Basically this indicates that the Far Hills market has gone from an over supply of inventory to a “balanced” market creating a more even playing field for Buyers and Sellers.

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.

Overall, 2014 was a decent year for the Far Hills market – only off 12% from the prior year.  Actually it was in line with the sales volume in 4 out of the last 5 years. Inventory has dropped considerably and is now at a “balanced” level (6 months supply) for the first time in at least three years.

On a somewhat negative note, the volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) through the end of December stands at only one (1) unit, which does not help the short term outlook.

It was interesting to note that November saw two significant sales in the upper end of the market at $1.9M+ and another for $2.3M+. When you include the two other sales from prior months of $2.9+M and $2.1+M, it was a solid year for the upscale market in Far Hills for 2014.

Interest rates remain at or near historic lows and prices are still relatively low with the general state of the economy steadily improving, albeit more slowly in NJ as compared to neighboring states. Inventory is expected to increase as the Spring selling season is just around the corner. In addition, pent up demand on the part of sellers who have been sitting on the fence waiting for signs of a housing recovery and wanting to move on should help 2015 to get off to a robust start.
