Mendham NJ Real Estate Market Update DECEMBER 2014

Note: There are two separate reports for MENDHAM – one for the TOWNSHIP and one for the BOROUGH

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume decreased modestly by ten (10) units or 12% – Last year: December 2012 thru December 2013  (86) homes sold as compared to the current period: December 2013 thru December 2014 with (76) homes sold.

  • The December year-to-date numbers decreased modestly by ten (10) units or 12% as compared to last year’s total of (86) homes sold to the current period with (76) homes sold. Despite this decrease it is still the second highest volume within the past five (5) years.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last December was eleven (11) homes sold as compared to this December with eight (8) homes sold is down by three (3) units or (27%).  This volume is also the second busiest December within the past five (5) years.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of December 2014 is three (3) units which is one (1) less than it was 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 December is at 9.0 months, which is up slightly from 8.9 months from this same time last year.  Basically this indicates that the local market has an over supply of inventory giving Buyers an edge in this local market.

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 numbers for MENDHAM BOROUGH are mostly down for DECEMBER 2014:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume decreased slightly by two (2) units or (3)% – Last year: December 2012 thru December 2013  (78) homes sold as compared to the current period: December 2013 thru December 2014 with (76) homes sold.

  • The December year-to-date numbers decreased slightly by two (2) units or 3% as compared to last year’s total of (78) homes sold to the current period with (76) homes sold.  Despite the decline, this is by far the second highest volume of sales year-to-date for December in at least the last five (5) years.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last December was at two (2) homes sold as compared  to this December with three (3) homes sold, which is up slightly by one (1) unit or (50%).

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of December 2014 is at three (3) units which is higher by one (1) unit or (50%) as compared to last year at this same time which was at two (2) units.

  • 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 5.3 months,  which is up by .4 months or (8%) from this same time last year.  Basically this indicates that the local market is moving away from being in “balance” and therefore providing an edge to Sellers over Buyers, at least for the short 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.

Activity in the Township for 2014 was not that far off from the previous record year of 2013, which is good news.  YTD volume for Closed Sales was only off from the previous year by 12%, which is a bit surprising since most experts thought 2013 was an anomaly. The number of homes Pending or Under Contract remains virtually unchanged (off last year by only one (1) unit) and inventory is basically unchanged from this same time last year at 9 months worth of of supply on hand giving buyers the edge in this market.

The same can be said for Mendham Borough with YTD Closed Sales volume down slightly at 3%. The number of homes Pending or Under Contract remains virtually unchanged (up by only one (1) unit) and inventory is basically unchanged from this same time last year at 5.3 months worth of of supply on hand, which is up by 8% giving sellers the edge in this market.  Prices are expected to remain steady and interest rates continue to remain low in both the Township and the Borough.

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 low for several more years as this inventory eventually gets cleared out.
