Egg Harbor Township, NJ Market Statistics

What's happening in the real estate market September update

Houses for sale in Egg Harbor Township New Jersey

Here’s a quick overview of what’s happening in the real estate market in Egg Harbor Township.  Median sold price is down 6% to $190,000.  The median for sale price is up 2% and sold properties are down 2%.  New properties are down 9% and total inventory is down 19%.  

So even with lower inventories prices are still down overall.  My interpretation of these statistics indicate that the foreclosure properties that are still on the market are continuing to pull prices down.  At the same time some of the communities in Egg Harbor Township are very short on inventory and so there is a great possibility of price appreciation.  Contact me if you’d like to know how much your home is worth in today’s market.  To view full statistics for August 2017 Egg Harbor Township real estate click here:  egg-harbor-township-market-stats

New homes starting at $220,000. Up to 4 bed, 2.5 bath, 2 car garage.

I got to tour the building site today of Egg Harbor Township’s newest community Gardenia Estates.  The community is located just off West Jersey Ave not far from English Creek road.  The development is a small community of 25 homes on a cul-de-sac.  The homes are built by DR Horton as “quick delivery” homes.

Gardenia Estates Model Home

The biggest benefit of the community is value.  Homes are priced in the low to mid $200,000 range.  For $210,840 you can purchase a 1,900 square foot home featuring 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a two car garage.  Home sizes range from 1,600 square feet ranch homes up to 2,867 square feet 5 bedroom and 3.5 baths.  Homes feature open layouts and 9 foot ceilings.  The home are all built on slabs and basements are not an option.  The “quick delivery” homes means that the builder in most cases has pre-selected options and colors of the homes.   If you are looking to make customization I suggest you contact me now as there may be opportunity to make changes at this stage of the construction process.

If you’re looking to build a home it’s hard to beat the value of what DR Horton is offering.  If you’re looking for a basement, more options and customization this may not be the best community for you. I work with all the area builders and would be happy to consult with you to find a home and community that meets your needs.  Please contact me and I’m happy to help.
