Median Sales Price
Median Sales Price saw it's second consecutive quarterly up tick in the 3rd quarter 2017! The Second Quarter marked the first up tick in 5 years since the beginning of the Casino Closures and sharp increase in local unemployment. The number of Bank Owned Sales saw a noted reduction from 1 in 4 Home sales in the First Quarter to 1 in 6 Homes Sold being a Bank owned Property in the Third Quarter.
The Result was an increase in Median Sale Price of 7.6% Year of Year.

The Bank Owned Impact
Median sales price was influenced by the continued high number of Bank Foreclosed sales. However, the Number of Sales of Bank Owned Properties in 3Q17 declined for the second consecutive quarter... from 27% of all sales in Q1 to 17% of all Sales in Q3. The total number of bank owned sales for the Third Quarter remained relatively flat year over year. This is a positive sign in terms of momentum as the bank inventory continues to absorb as fast as it becomes available and we are seeing a increase in traditional sales.
Despite a sharp increase in overall median sale price... the high volume of Bank Owned inventory continues to negatively impact the Median Sales Prices Countywide.
This is identified when we separate the Bank Owned Sales from the Non-Distressed Sales for the Third Quarter in Atlantic County.
