Searching For a Home or Selling a Home in Middlesex County, New Jersey

Closed Real Estate Sales Data

Obtaining reliable current information is a very important aspect of searching for, or selling a home, in Iselin, New Jersey or any part of the County or State. I am providing Sales Data from the Middlesex County Multiple Listing System for one family homes and condos/townhouses comparing closed sales in 2009 to 2008.

This type of information can help you see the factual average trends of real estate sales and sale prices in particular Towns of interest as compared to reading about regional or national statistics.

Real estate is local. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in Colonia, the real estate market there may not be same as in Edison or Woodbridge. Real estate values vary from Town to Town, and from one neighborhood or section of a Town to another.

While statistical information is important to review, knowing the average sale prices is just part of the process of understanding the current trends in real estate values for a particular location, especially when buying or selling home. Other important information to obtain would be the comparison of closed sales from one year to another, the comparison of active homes on the market to sold and closed sales and a list of recent homes which were taken off the market unsold, commonly referred to as expired listings.

Obtaining local, reliable real estate information is extremely important to home buyers and home sellers, especially in a real market like this one in 2009. Obtaining this type of information, and more information about a particular area, is not difficult. Most all real estate agents can provide it. However, it is the interpretation of this information and data which becomes even more important in making home buying or selling decisions. And that leads to another very important consideration in buying or selling a home, selecting the REALTOR to help.

Providing MLS information and statistics is easy. However, it is the interpretation of that information which separates the abilities and value of one agent to another.

For home buyers, find a REALTOR who has recently sold homes in the desired areas of your home search, is very familiar with market values and continually shows various homes in the price range and area desired. Lastly, select a REALTOR who is not hesitant to provide all the real estate statistical information pertaining to the home purchase decision.

For home sellers, find a REALTOR who has recently sold homes in the surrounding area, is very familiar with market values and continually shows various homes in the price range and area the home is located.

Lastly, select a REALTOR who is not hesitant to provide all the real estate statistical information pertaining to the home selling decision.
