Peapack Gladstone NJ Real Estate Market Update AUGUST 2014

The numbers for Peapack Gladstone are down significantly across the board for AUGUST 2014 in 3 out of 4 categories:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume has dropped significantly for the second consecutive month by fourteen (14) units or (40%) – Last year: August 2012 thru August 2013  (35) homes sold as compared to the current period: August 2013 thru August 2014 with (21) homes sold.

  • The August year-to-date numbers are down by thirteen (13) units or (52%) when compared to last year’s total of twenty-two (25) homes sold to the current period with twelve (12) homes sold.  Note, this is the lowest YTD total through August in at least the past 5 years.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last August, three (3) homes sold as compared to this August with only one (1) home sold is down by two (2) units or (67%). Note, this is the lowest monthly total for August in at least the past 5 years.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of August 2014 has increased to two (2) units which is up from zero (0) units at this same time last year.

  • 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 12.0 months, which is up significantly by 6.2 months or (107%) when compared to last year’s inventory at 5.8 months. Basically this indicates that the Peapack Gladstone market has a lot more 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.
