June 2019 | Has The Market Completely Cooled Down? | Hoboken/Downtown Jersey City Real Estate Market Report

I hope everyone had a great 4th!

Absorption rates are starting to creep up for the third month in a row for Hoboken.  Thankfully, the downtown Jersey City absorption rate decreased 16.84% for June.  If you look at how these rates have increased in the area over the last several years, you will see that inventory is staying on the market a lot longer.

As a reminder, the absorption rate determines how long inventory will take to sell in a specific market.

While properties continue to stay on the market longer, we will continue to see more and more opportunities for better deals.

Total transactions were down 3.06% for Hoboken and 3.18% for downtown Jersey City. Again, as you look at the year-over-year changes, you can see that transactions overall are trending down.

Price wise, things were OK for June. Hoboken 1-3BR were a little up and down, but nothing extreme.  Newport 1BR surged 17.54% and that was based on 5 sales, so it's a good representation on the market in that area.

Mortgage rates are very favorable at the moment and with the Fed hinting that there may be a rate decrease in the future, we may see a very busy fall selling season.

I saw recently on Zillow that the market has completely cooled in the area.  The market has definitely changed over the last few months, but I wouldn't say that it has completely cooled down based on the data I see here.
