Otteau Report is Out

The Otteau Report, which describes the state of the real estate market in Jersey is published quarterly.

The report, which contains lots of useful information, makes it clear that the real estate bubble is deflating in New Jersey and here at the Shore. Looking at the “Projected Absorption” in months of each Monmouth County Town, it looks like the towns directly on the beach have the most unsold inventory. For example, Spring Lake has a projected absorption of 43 months and Sea Girt has 28 months. Meanwhile, the total market for all of Monmouth County is 8 months.

I am looking to buy in Ocean County. Zip 08742. Everyone says this place is way too nice and has too much money in the area for prices to fall. Any feedback? Thanks

Some May stats according to the Monmouth County MLS

New listings=30
Under contract-7
%listing price/selling price-91.99%

Spring Lake-
Under contract-8
%LP/SP- 89.59%

Sea Girt
Under contract-2
%LP/SP- 85.34%

Of course all the houses that sold had higher original listing prices but their realtors (Sally) had changed the MLS and lowered the price so the listing to selling price percentage is really smaller than stated.

Sally says, " Buy, buy,buy before the prices drop some more!"

Welcome to the dead zone
Real estate survival guide: The great housing bubble has finally started to deflate, and the fall will be harder in some markets than others.
By Shawn Tully, FORTUNE senior writer
May 5, 2006: 12:14 PM EDT

NEW YORK (FORTUNE) - The stories keep piling up. In many once-sizzling markets around the country, accounts of dropping list prices have replaced tales of waiting lists for unbuilt condos and bidding wars over humdrum three-bedroom colonials.

The message is clear. Five years of superheated price gains rescued America from stock market collapse, put billions in consumers' pockets, and ignited a building boom that bolstered the nation's economy. But it's over. The great housing bubble has finally started to deflate.

You won't find that news in broad national statistics or the upbeat comments from the real estate industry. The latest official figures, for example, show both new and existing home sales rising in March, a mixed bag on prices - and a record number of new homes on the market.

But FORTUNE's on-the-ground reporting - in what up to now have been some of the nation's hottest areas - paints a very different picture: Contracts are being canceled, deals are drying up, prices are starting to drop. The psychology is shifting even as thousands of new homes and condos join the for-sale listings each day - so the downward pressure will only get worse.

"The buyers' sense of urgency is gone," says Bob Toll, CEO of luxury builder Toll Brothers (Research), who has long been a housing bull. "They see the market going soft, so they stall."

Also, is it possible to get online the list of off-site conditions which would affect the value of residential properties in Monmouth County?

I know that parts of Little Silver and Rumson are in flood prone areas. I would imagine FH and RB too. I believe the Fed. Gov. publishes local maps that show areas that flood and usually the local boro hall supposedly has them available.

The NJDEP's iMap web application should contain flood plain information.

I see in your blog you are talking about something related to real estate. Are you interested in real estate? Here's a good site to find those deals. All deals are available at auction prices. Residential real estate, commercial real estate, lots, real estate courses, analysis, timeshares, condo hotels, mortgages, plus many kinds of investments. You have nothing to lose by looking. Just a secret little tip I wanted to pass along.
