Another area in the suburbs we like is Rutherford, NJ, a quiet and peaceful place for you and your family and only minutes to NYC and the other metro areas of Northern NJ. For you partiers out there, Rutherford is a B.Y.O.B town with plenty of great restaurants and landscape to enjoy. Armed with a great school system, real estate taxes are less than Montclair at least with just as much convenience.
One very big asset for Rutherford NJ Real Estate is its direct public transportation system into Manhattan which takes about 15 minutes from door to door via NJ Transit. Historically, Rutherford has a quiet real estate market with limited availability, thus, fewer monthly sales than other markets with more inventory. That being said, recognizing the low inventory, sales are not reaching the level they need to in order to drive down inventory.

Since February 2010, the average price of a home sold in Rutherford is bouncing around $375,000. Currently there is a home under contract for $1,250,000 that should drive up the average sales price in July or August, but we anticipate that the average will set below $400,000 throughout 2010 until inventory is absorbed at a faster pace. Let’s look at the most recent month of June.
|Active Inventory for Sale||68|
|Sales in June||5|

Rate of Absorption: An absorption rate indicates the number of months it takes to sell the current inventory at the present rate of sales. Based on the figures above, the absorption rate remains high in Rutherford. Hopefully the 18 homes under contract close in July to lower the rate of absorption. Sellers being pressured with lowering prices will likely conceed a little more to buyers if they are motivated.
