Long Valley NJ Real Estate Market Update DECEMBER 2014

The numbers for DECEMBER 2014 in Long Valley are somewhat of a mixed bag:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume decreased slightly from the prior year by ten (10) units or (5%) – Last year: December 2012 thru December 2013  (189) homes sold as compared to the current period: December 2013 thru December 2014 with (179) homes sold.

  • The December year-to-date numbers are down by the same margin as above, however it is worth noting that this is the second highest YTD total for December in at least the past five (5) years.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last December was fifteen (15) homes sold as compared to this December at seventeen (17) homes sold is up modestly by two (2) units or (13%).

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of December 2014 is at sixteen (16) units which is significantly higher when compared to last year at this same time which was seven (7) units, for a positive variance of nine nine (9) units or 129%.

  • 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 6.5 months, which is up only slightly from 5.8 months from this same time last year or (5%).  The increase in the number of homes recently listed For Sale indicates that the local market has shifted from a somewhat balanced market to one with a small margin of excess of inventory.

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 volume of Closed Sales in Long Valley for 2014 was pretty much in line with recent years, with this year being the second best in at least the past five years. Prices are expected to remain steady and interest rates continue to remain near record low levels.  There has rarely been a time where both prices AND interest rates were so low. Combine these two factors and you have the perfect conditions for a robust and steady housing recovery. The general state of the economy continues to improve in NJ (although the neighboring states are doing better) along with a high rate of foreclosures and distressed properties still having to wind their way through the process are expected to keep prices steady for the foreseeable future and hopefully continue to set the stage for a complete housing recovery in 2015 and beyond.
