Happy Almost Spring. 

Recently, a fellow realtor from a local branch office of a large real estate chain asked me when my next real estate report is coming out.  He confessed that he looks forward to reading my report and does not have the kind of data I provide available elsewhere and finds the market data extremely valuable and interesting. it is:

So without further delay, welcome to the March 2017 JB West Orange Real Estate Report.  Real estate prices have remained steady throughout the winter.  With the mild winter weather (even with the recent storm), buyers started looking early this spring. Many properties have gone under contract quickly. The following data and analysis is from our Exclusive JB Advantage Analytics.

●      The average sales price in the Gregory School District has increased by 7% to $398,000.  In addition, the average list price to sales price ratio is 96% meaning homes in Gregory are selling within 4% of list price. This speaks to strong buyer demand.  In fact, 28% of the homes in the Gregory school District have sold in 30 days or less and of those that sold fast...48% went for over list price. This means we are seeing bidding wars.
