Competition For New Jersey Homes Creates Property Boom

A boom in house sales across New Jersey has reduced housing stock by 50% compared to this time last year. Recent uncertainty in the housing market has created a backlog of homebuyers who are now taking advantage of low-interest rates. And with a growing trend of leaving major metropolitan areas, more suburban but still well-connected towns in Camden County are proving popular. This is great news for sellers as competition over the low inventory pushes house prices up to over 20% higher than they were in January 2020. At the same time, the moratorium on foreclosures is reassuring for buyers who, having found the right house, are in a position to pay a little extra for a long-term home in the Garden State. Buyers Prepared For Bidding Wars In New Jersey’s thriving property market, fierce competition for decreased inventory is resulting in bidding wars over popular homes. Quick sales with... Read more →

How to Know You’ve Found the Right House 

Buying a property is a big decision and an expensive one, so it’s good to be cautious when you’re looking at different properties you might be able to buy.

However, it can also be problematic if you are too cautious. Being too cautious could lead to you missing out on the ideal property because you don’t want to risk making a mistake, and you’re holding back on signing any deal. This is why it’s good to know when you’ve found the right house. Finding the right house – and being sure about it – means you can go ahead and enjoy the property in whatever way... Read more →
