List your Hudson County condo now to benefit from escalated buyer competition, which will likely lead to profitable bidding wars for sellers.
So, what does this mean?
At the beginning of 2020, Hudson County experienced an influx of new listings. Then, we had a delayed spring market due to the onset of the pandemic. With many homeowners just recently returning to the area, the housing market has struggled to match inventory levels with the newly intense buyer demand.
This year, we are seeing the number of under contract homes and sold units ahead in most markets compared to last year’s statistics. This upturn can be attributed to the impact of the pandemic, and the market reopening this year. The real estate market this July is starting to spark, with more sellers entering the market to offset the inventory shortage—so homebuyers should keep a watchful eye out for their dream homes to surface soon!
