Well, the market slid a bit at the end of last year and was just starting to turn around until we all went under lockdown.
Pending sales increased by 29.55% for Hoboken and 18.63% for Jersey City for February, which is a good indicator of future sales activity. By many accounts, we were just starting to turn a corner. There was a noticeable uptick in activity and bidding wars.
Pricing did decrease in all market segments for February and now we'll have to see how the numbers stack up for March.
I came across an interesting article about 5 reasons why we aren't heading towards another housing crash.
It's a very interesting read.
