Quarter Four brought an eventful year to a close. Equity markets retreated, having the worst December since the Great Depression, state and local tax (SALT) deduction limits were imposed on homeowners, and higher interest rates and tighter lending standards reduced liquidity in the market.
Flying in the face of these challenges,affordable markets in Southern Hudson County soared,posting significant year over year increases in median house prices.
Conversely,increased property taxes and macro factors impacted localized premium marketswith their median house prices retreating – Hoboken by 9% and Downtown Jersey City by 4%.

Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"Anthony helped me purchase my first home (a 2 bed, 2 bath condo) in Hoboken in July 2015. To rate him a 5* is an understatement. Having lived in Hoboken for eight years and had friends buy places during my time there I thought I knew what I was doing, but having Anthony help me throughout the process proved to me why you MUST work with a realtor that knows the area in which you are looking.
Being my first home buying experience Anthony did an incredible job of laying out the home buying process and walking me through each step - he was even able to recommend professionals in other areas for me to work with throughout the process (mortgage broker, lawyer, even a painter)! He even dealt with my NUMEROUS questions (at all hours) and did so promptly and with a smile!
Most importantly he listened to what I was looking for and only showed me properties that appealed to me and made sense.
Working with anyone besides Anthony to find your next home would be a huge mistake!"
