The Weekly Wednesday Wrap-Up – Hoboken Condo Sales Inventory & Activity

Italy Trumps Hoboken

So I’m in Italy on vacation but I couldn’t resist checking and posting the figures.  Given that I can choose to spend my time thinking about Hoboken real estate or eating gelato and riding my bike in the beautiful Italian countryside, sorry, for this week when it comes to my priorities, Italy wins.  But here are this week’s numbers, nonetheless.  It’s more of the same – more units for sale and steady numbers of sales resulting in a continued build-up of Hoboken condos for sale.

    Wow even a bigger gap this week with 2br listings Vs sales.

    Even using 10 sales per week this is 7.5 months of inventory, it would be 12.6 using 6 sales!

    When do you see sales and listings equalizing to clear out some of the inventory? What will it take for this to happen?

    I wish I could answer that question – but, really, who knows what will happen going forward? On the one hand, the economy and the stock market are gloomy. On the other hand, Hoboken is a great place to live, you don’t need a car (see zillow.com’s new ‘walkabiliby index’), and it’s still less than half the price of Manhattan. A surge in sales would be great but with new listings growing by the day, it would take quite a bit of activity to deplete the backlog. We are still in much better shape than so many other neighborhoods. I will be posting the mid year results in a few weeks.

    Is this the most recent Wednesday weekly wrap up? Any reason this has been discontinued? Thanks.
