This is a Real Estate Market Recap of Somerset, NJ; December 2011

 

Closed Sales

Fourty three new happy homeowners in Somerset since November 1st 2011: 30 home sales and 13 townhouse/duplex sales.

 

80 homes are under contract in Somerset: 79 homes and 31 townhouse/duplexes.

 

There were 123 new listings here in town since October 1st 2011 (87 homes and 36 townhouses). All of this information is important to include in the Real Estate Market Recap of Somerset. I feel that the recent lower home prices and the lower mortgage interest rates can make it a great time to buy a house.

 

 

If you would like details of the houses that sold or are still on the market in Somerset please call (908) 574-9483 or email me anytime at CarolKronmaier@Weichert.com. Search available homes and townhomes for sale in Somerset on my Website: CarolKronmaierHomes.com.

Absorption Rates

Absorption rates tell you how many months the available homes for sale in an area will take to sell (if no new homes are listed.) The number shows the rate at which the inventories of homes are being absorbed (sold). As the rate rises or falls it shows you if the current home inventory in Hillsborough is shrinking or growing.

 

There are currently 430 active listings in Somerset and there were 33 sales in the last month which is a market absorption rate of 13 months. Inventory levels above 5 or 6 months indicate a clear buyer's market. When Somerset absorption rates are that high, I like to break it down and look at price point or type of housing:

 

Homes priced under $300,000: 269 listings available, 22 sold last 30 days = inventory of 12.2 months

 

Homes priced under $400,000: 73 listings available, 2 sold last 30 days = inventory of 36.5 months

 

Homes starting at $400,000: 88 listings available, 9 sold last 30 days = inventory of 9.8 months

 

 

I also split the inventory up as style of home:

 

Homes: 276 listings available, 20 sold last 30 days = inventory of 13.8 months

 

Townhouses/Duplexes: 154 listings available, 13 sold last 30 days = inventory of 11.8 months

Remember inventory levels do not predict how long it will take to sell a given house. I feel that they help us determine how much activity there is in a given market at a given price point and allow us to plan accordingly when marketing a home for sale.
