Morristown NJ Real Estate Market Update SEPTEMBER 2014

The numbers for SEPTEMBER 2014 in Morristown are mostly down with the exception of Pending Sales:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume was down modestly by eighteen (18) units or (10%) – Last year: September 2012 thru September 2013  (186) homes sold as compared to the current period: September 2013 thru September 2014 with (168) homes sold.  This is the second month in a row that this category dipped into negative territory on the year, however Morristown is not that far off the pace it was last year at this time looking back 12 months.

  • The September year-to-date numbers are down by thirty-eight (38) units or (24%) which is very similar to last month’s results, when compared to last year’s total of (157) homes sold to the current period with (119) homes sold.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last September was twenty-one (21) homes sold, as compared  to this September with thirteen (13) homes sold which is down by eight (8) units or (38%), also similar to the prior month’s numbers.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of September 2014 is running significantly higher at twenty (20) units as compared to last year at this same time at sixteen (16) units, which is up by four (5) units or (25%).

  • The supply of available inventory (the time it would take to sell all of the homes currently on the market) as of the the end of September is 4.3 months, which is (.4) months or (10%) higher than it was last year at this same time. This shortage of available will help keep prices higher, at least in the short time as buyers have fewer homes from which to choose.

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 Morristown market dipped slightly in September as compared to last year’s abnormally record volume, however current levels are still exceeding the previous three years.  Another piece of good news is the increase in the number of homes Pending or Under Contract which is an indicator of future sales volume and will most likely help to maintain a healthy pace of volume for the short term at least.

Prices are expected to remain steady and interest rates continue to remain low.  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 in check for several more years as this inventory eventually gets cleared out.
