The December Hoboken Condo Sales Results

Interestingly, this month shows little change from the sales figures of last December. Maybe it’s just the holidays. The real story, however, can be seen in the 3 month moving average chart. That is an upward trend if I’ve ever seen one! Right now, prices are about a third higher than they were back in the peaks of the ’05 and ’06 “bubble”. This, folks, is no bubble. The prices are being driven by a severe lack of supply and ever-increasing demand. Having lived in Hoboken for almost 20 years now, it is no secret that we’re a favorite with people who work in Manhattan. Especially with free day-care for pre-schoolers (thanks to being an “Abbott District“).  Ah, Hoboken’s little secret!  Problem is, once those little ones hit middle school, many parents want to move to areas with better high schools and bigger homes.  So we see constant turn over in Hoboken.  Even rising interest rates have not put a dent in the rising prices as 4% on a 30 year fixed mortgage is still historically very low.  Some year-end analysis will be forthcoming over the next week.  Stay tuned!

We are here ready to help you get the most out of this market – just reach out to us at 201 993 9500 or email me at lorituroff “at” gmail.com (writing it that way keeps spam down but you know what I mean).

There is Simply No Condo Inventory in Hoboken or Jersey City

We start the year with a paltry 65 condo units listed for sale on the MLS.  That is not a typo – 65.  Merely 94 in Downtown Jersey City.  In 14 years of selling real estate in Hoboken, I’ve never seen anything like this.  Even during the holidays.  Even in the winter.  Despite what may happen with interest rates rising, if supply stays that extremely low, prices are sure to remain strong.  There are also likely to be some hurting real estate agents.  With 1,345 of them in Hoboken alone and another 797 in Jersey City, most will simply have no business.  That may not be such a bad thing.  They say 10% of the agents do 90% of the business.  In our neck of the woods, it’s more like 5% do 95% and narrowing.  We will be posting a full, year-end sales analysis of the Hoboken condo market over the next few weeks so stay tuned, and stay warm!
