Fourth Quarter 2019: Real Estate Market Report – Passaic County, New Jersey


The Passaic County seller’s market continued through the fourth quarter of 2019, finishing the year with a flourish. Prices keep going up, with the average price rising almost 8% for the quarter and over 4% for the rolling year, and the median price up almost 7% for the quarter and 4% for the year. Indeed, Passaic pricing is at its highest levels since the height of the seller’s market in the 2005-06 era. And while relatively low levels of inventory held back sales growth for the 2019 calendar year, we did see sales go up over 2% for the quarter. Going forward, we believe that the market fundamentals are strong, with prices still below historic highs, interest rates low, and the economy thriving, so we expect both sales and price growth through a robust 2020.
