NJ real estate market continues positive trend despite pandemic

American Properties Realty, Inc. sees success as its communities sell fast.

ISELIN, NJ – Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, mortgage rates remain at record lows. The Washington Post reports the average for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is 2.81 percent, far below the 3.78 percent level a year ago. Mortgage rates have continued to fall since Spring, a result of the Federal Reserve intervening to stabilize the housing market. These low rates have contributed to the success of the New Jersey real estate industry over the last few months as New Yorkers flee to the suburbs.

“Since the pandemic began, the suburbs around New York City, from New Jersey to Westchester County to Connecticut to Long Island have been experiencing enormous demand for homes of all prices,” said Matthew Hagg in the New York Times. “People in New Jersey suburbs who have no interest in putting their homes on the market are receiving unsolicited calls and knocks on the door from brokers asking if they want to sell.”

Paul Csik, Senior Vice President of American Properties Realty, Inc, has witnessed the trend as his new home communities seem to be selling faster than ever. “The pandemic has shifted the mindset of homebuyers who previously lived and worked in Manhattan as they realize they can move to New Jersey, live for much less and work remotely.”

American Properties Realty, Inc. currently has new home opportunities available at Heritage at Highland Park in Highland Park, NJ, Heritage at Pennington in Pennington, NJ, and Heritage at Middletown in Middletown, NJ. “All of our communities are selling fast, and we encourage anyone interested to act now before it’s too late,” said Csik.

Heritage at Highland Park, a new community of luxury townhomes in Highland Park, recently opened its third phase of homes. “Although the first two phases of homes at this community are almost sold out, we are pleased to unveil Phase 3,” said Csik. “This highly anticipated new phase features north and east facing homesites.”

Priced from the mid $400s, homes feature three bedrooms, three baths and a one-car garage. A loft/fourth bedroom option is also available. Quick delivery homes are available. To schedule a one-on-one appointment, click here. To learn more, call Erika Rotondo at 732-354-3543 or email
