A look at the data shows some very interesting trends. January started off with a very poor average sales price however it was one of the more active months in the LBI real estate market. April and May showed a very strong spring sale season with a high number of sales and some of the highest average sales prices for Oceanside homes this year. It is important for me to point out that it is of the time of my writing this article, June has not reported a full months worth of sale data so it is likely that more homes will sell them at the average sales price will change before the month is over.
Before buying any home in the LBI real estate market is important to do your research and have an understanding of the current trends developing in the LBI real estate market. Overall, the higher end of home sales on Long Beach Island has shown some signs of stagnation. I believe this has to do with the poor showings of the financial markets especially as 2016 started off. There does seem to be some liquidity issues throughout the entire economic world and this can have an impact on the higher end of home sales on Long Beach Island. What this means for both buyers and sellers is that prices must be realistic and homes should be priced in accordance with current market trends. The LBI real estate market is surprisingly resilient and while higher end home sales may have shown some signs of stagnation, there is equal evidence to show that this price bracket is set to increase in activity. Therefore, it is important to evaluate all aspects of a home before entering into any transaction and making sure that the price set for a home is reflective of both the current trends and the possibility of future developments.
