South Orange 2020 Real Estate Recap

  


 

It is now 2021, thankfully, and I expect we all have high hopes for returning to some kind of normal.   While 2020 was a challenging year for us all, our local Real Estate Market was hotter than ever.  Here are some of the fun facts:

 

1.       Average price for a home sold in 2020 rose 6% over the previous year to $703,763

2.       Sold Price vs List Price performed at 103.2% of Average List Price, the prior year we were flat.

3.       The number of $1,000,000 homes sold rose to 24 in 2020 vs. 15 in 2019, so just over a 50% increase in $1M Plus.

4.       We saw a HUGE increase in the number of homes that sold for over asking=54%, this represents a shift of 6% more than the previous year.

5.       Another 15% of the homes sold, sold for asking price, giving us almost 70% sold for asking price or above.

6.       Highest Closed Price for 2020 was $1,451,000 for a home in the Montrose.

7.       Highest list price was $1,399,000 in The Manors and sold for full asking.

8.       The number of homes sold showed a nice gain for 2020, totaling 291, versus the 268 sold in 2019.

9.       The number of DAYS ON MARKET did increase slightly from 34.0 to 36.7, showing an 8% worsening, as the only negative factor in 2020 for South Orange Real Estate.

10.   In the $1,000,000 home market, 15 of the 25 Homes sold for over $1,000,000 closed for asking or above.

 

Forecasts call for a continuation of these trends for the next 9 months*, all things being equal; that means that interest rates would stay at their close to all time lows and joblessness doesn’t increase further.

*according to Jeffrey Otteau from Otteau Group, New Jersey’s most prolific appraisal and real estate advisory company.

A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets. Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up. The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating. Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.
