NJ's seasonal market IS typically slower however, with interest rates being so low, we may see a busier than normal Winter sales season. As a home buyer, my strongest recommendation to you is to not necessarily focus on the season but instead each individual home's price & marketing history. Sellers are getting savvy and pricing their home properly from the start and going under-contract quickly! You have to have your finger on the pulse of the market to know if a home is priced right - not wait for the entire town to reduce statistically on paper. I view data such as days on market and the marketing history of the homes for my buyers and help them isolate the best possible home for the best possible price.
It can be fun and you can buy successfully in any market! Feel free to give me a call.
