The market is
good now and has picked for sellers in the $270,000 and below in EHT and in the first time home buyers price range. I recently did an 2 hour open house on a Saturday for nice 4 Bedroom 3 full bath home in EHT I had listed for $269,750.00. I had an fabulous turn out of 26 different buyer parties, which there was 63 people total thorough the 2 hour open house. The nice home was priced right and in fabulous condition, and honestly, I have not seen that kind of strong turn out for one home on the mainland area on just a two hour open house since year 2006. Glad to see the home sold for full price quickly with just 7 days on the market.
The townhouse-condo segment showed improvement with more inventory sold, up a strong 29% and closed sales up
6.8%. The adult community 55 plus living segment had the best improvement number overall. New listings were up 34.7% and closed sales year to year were up a whopping 51.6 % Ironically the days on the market for 55 plus sales were slightly up from 50 to 59 days on the market till sold. The median sales price in the 55 plus segment jumped up a healthy 8.9% from $225,000 to $245,000. Also a good sign in this segment was a vast improvement of 20.5% where the months supply of inventory of homes for sale was lowered from 8.3 months to just 6.6.months.
Recently on February 18th, a judge ruled that waterfront community of Seaview Harbor cannot leave being part of Egg Harbor Township and become a part of Longport, NJ`s tax rolls in the future. This ruling will help keep EHT stable again for property taxes, as it has been for many years as the middle anchor area of Atlantic County.
