A Message From Mary Cano, NCJAR CEOComing Soon

It always amazes me how external forces in our industry create problems for us. Take "coming soon" properties for instance! They are appearing on many well-known national websites.

The New Jersey Real Estate Commission DOES NOT recognize "coming soon".

10KJuly2014Although low supply and tight credit standards are still hurdles to recovery, prices continue to rise in most local areas. Job growth has strengthened lately, but wage growth has not kept pace with the price gains we have seen. Buoyed by stable and continuously lower interest rates, affordability is still historically high yet below its all-time peak. Rising inventory levels will lead to more choices for qualified buyers, but as the summer reaches toward fall, the prospect of more homes coming on the market begins to wane.
