When does it all go off the cliff? There seems to be no end in sight to increasing home values in the Garden State.

After a wobble around the end of last year, a seller’s market came roaring right back. A thorn in the side of buyers is a beautiful rose for sellers.

Rob Dekanski of Remax 1st Advantage said:

We’ve been waiting for a cool down but it just isn’t happening. Demand is sky high and inventory levels are still near record lows. If your home shows well and is priced appropriately, it’s gone in a weekend.

So it’s all resulted in home values increasing to the point where there are now 36 towns in New Jersey where the average home price is over $1 million.

The statewide average home value in New Jersey now stands at $484,467 according to NJ.com. These three dozen towns are well over double that.
