  • Banks are back lending - although local banks that know the neighborhood are a better bet for a successful loan.  
  • Spring market is coming – last year the market started in February. The inventory is low today, but our group have been meeting with many potential sellers who are planning to put their homes on the market.
  • Prices are going up - Hoboken increased 6% and Downtown Jersey City increased 8% last year. (Based on the average sold price from the Hudson MLS comparing 2012 to 2011.)


Happy New Year and Happy House Hunting
