Tewksbury NJ Real Estate Market Update JULY 2015


The numbers for Tewksbury in JULY of 2015 are mostly up across the board:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume rose significantly by eighteen (18) units or (25%) – July 2013 thru July 2014 (73) homes sold as compared to July 2014 thru July 2015 with (91) homes sold.

  • The July year-to-date numbers are up by seven (7) units or (19%) when you compare the current period at forty-three (43) homes sold to last year’s year-to-date total with thirty-six (36) homes sold. This was the second best July for this category in at least the past five years for the second month running.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring this July was five (5) units, which is up by one (1) unit or (25%) as compared to this same time last year.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of July 2015 is running slightly lower at nine (9) units as compared to last year at this same time at ten (10) units, which is down by one (1) unit or (11%).

  • 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 July is at 12.8 months, which is down (20%) when compared to last year’s inventory at 16.1 months. Basically this indicates that the Tewksbury market has a lot more inventory for Buyers to choose from and is even less “balanced” now than last year. The result of this condition will help to keep downward pressure on the prices of homes in Tewksbury at least for the near term.

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.

Similar to June, July was a rather busy month in Tewksbury. While the monthly sales volume only had 5 sales recorded in July, both the rolling 12 month volume and the year-to-date volume were up by 25% and 19%, respectively. It is interesting to note that there were no sales recorded  in excess of $900,000 in July. Pending sales dipped slightly by one (1) unit as compared to last year at this same time, which went from ten (10) units in 2014 to nine (9) units through the current period.

Inventory declined sharply by 20% to 12.8 months worth of supply, down from last year at this time which was at 16.1 months. There is still a significant amount of pent up demand on the part of sellers wanting to sell their homes and move on with the next stage of their lives, but only time will tell if the economy will cooperate with people’s plans.

Also worth mentioning regarding inventory are those sellers pricing their homes as if we are back in the boom days of the early 2000’s, which is certainly not the case. This tactic only serves to slow the market down and clutter it up with overpriced homes that will take a long time to sell. Unfortunately, the agents who take these listings are more to blame than the their seller clients, as they do this for a living and should know better. As a result of all of this excess inventory, buyers are definitely in control and will stay that way until the pace picks up again. With that said however, it is not an uncommon occurrence for homes to sell for close to or even above the List Price, sometimes with multiple bids, when sellers price their homes correctly from the very beginning.  Pricing your home too high in the beginning is always punitive and only means less money for sellers in the end.
