Morris Township NJ Real Estate Market Update MARCH 2015

The numbers for Morris Township are up in 3 out of 4 categories for MARCH 2015:

  • The rolling 12 month sales volume has increased modestly by twenty-five (25) units or (8%) – Last year: March 2013 thru March 2014  (323) homes sold as compared to the current period: March 2014 thru March 2015 with (348) homes sold.

  • The March year-to-date closed sales volume rose slightly by two (2) units or (4%) as compared to last year at this same time with fifty (50) units as compared to the current period at fifty-two (52) units.  It is worth noting that this is the highest YTD total for March in at least the past five (5) years.

  • The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring last March with seventeen (17) homes sold, as compared to this March with twenty-three (23) homes sold is up by six (6) units or (35%), making this the best March by far in at least the past five years.

  • The volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of March 2015 is running (44%) lower at nineteen (19) units as compared to last year at this same time at thirty-four (34) units.  This is the first decrease in this category in three months. We’ll have to wait and see what the next few months bring in order to determine if a new trend is emerging.

  • 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 March is at 3.8 months, which is up slightly from 3.7 months (3%) from this same time last year.  Basically this indicates that the local market has even less inventory for Buyers to choose from and continues to be a long way off from being considered a “balanced” market, which will give a decided edge to Sellers for the time being.

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 local Morris Township market continues to chug along at a brisk pace for the first quarter of 2015! This was the busiest March in at least the past five years with 23 sales recorded.  In addition, the 12 month rolling closed sales volume and the corresponding Year-to-Date numbers are both up from the previous month.  Inventory remained relatively flat at 3.8 months worth of supply, making this a seller’s market. The only negative was a 44% drop in Pending sales, which was down by 15 units as compared to last year at this same time.

Interest rates continue to remain near record low levels.  There has rarely been a time when both prices AND interest rates were so low. Combine these two factors with the general state of the economy slowly improving, (although NJ is lagging behind it’s neighboring states and there is still a considerable volume of foreclosure properties that have yet to wind their way through the process) the housing market is poised to get itself back on some solid footing and closer to a more complete recovery in 2015.
