August 2009 Hoboken Condo Sales Statistics

Here are the final sales figures for August 2009 compiled using the Hudson County Multiple Listing Service.

The Hoboken condo market picked up steam and showed solid gains in August across all categories when compared to July 2009 stats.  Total units sold improved by 15% (60 vs 69 units).  Average prices rose 3.6 % ($478,431 vs $495,882) and median prices were up 10.7%, ($469,950 vs $475,000).  The largest gain was in pending contracts.  In August, there were 69 contracts signed, a 50% gain from the 46 contracts signed in July.

While these month over month gains are encouraging for our local market, they are still mostly down from the August 2008 figures.  The exception was an increase in pending contracts, another sign that buyers may be getting off of the fence and into the market.

Here are the comparisons:
