Weekly statistics 1/18/09- 1/25/09

The Hoboken condo market continued with a sluggish sales pace last week with only 7 firm accepted offers, none with an asking price above $549,900.  Average asking price was $424,082.

 News came out today that existing home sales unexpectedly rose 6.5 percent in December to an annual rate of 4.74 million units, as the median home sales price plunged 15.3 percent to $175,400 from $207,000 a year ago. The decline is the largest year-over-year drop in records going back to 1968.

According to the National Association of REALTORS, in home sales, buyers took advantage of dramatically lower prices, especially in distressed markets like California, Florida and Nevada, where foreclosures have swamped the market.

“Buyers will continue to have an edge over sellers for the foreseeable future,” said Lawrence Yun, the organization’s economist.
