Bottom Line: The above statistics all point to a “Seller’s Market” in Manahawkin. A seller's market comes into formation when demand exceeds supply for homes. A seller's market is often heard in real estate to describe a shortage of properties in the face of healthy demand. A buyer's market is the opposite situation, where supply exceeds demand and therefore the power resides with the buyer in terms of setting a price. While there are many more homes on the market, prices continue to rise due to demand.
Important Note: Experts seem to think there may be an economic downturn in the next 12 months, so if you are thinking of selling, NOW may be the time!!
