Hot Market: 30 Days & Out

E-mail: MelindaSherwood@princetoninfo.com

With its Ivy-clad colonials, high-end shops, and collegiate

attitude, Princeton has always been one of the most desirable towns

in Central New Jersey. Now Princeton’s cachet has literally gone through

the roof — homes here are selling almost overnight.

In Princeton Township recently, hungry homebuyers scooped up five

homes, with price tags between $250,000 and $400,000 before the broker

even had a chance to hold an open house. Not since the 1980s has the

real estate market been so hot. What’s fueling the market is not low

interest rates, but the low supply of new homes, in conjunction with

a population surge, says Pete Callaway, president of N.T. Callaway.

"The inventory is really low," he says. "In the market

that we’re in right now, if houses are priced properly they usually

are sold in 30 days."

The situation in Princeton illustrates the larger forces of economic

expansion, population growth, land shortage, and massive accumulation

of wealth that are reshaping New Jersey. Pharmaceutical and high-tech

companies already employ thousands of high-paid workers, and with

the building of two new corporate parks — one for RCN and one

for Merrill Lynch — homes have to be found for thousands of new

employees. "We are seeing quite a few people coming in with relocation

packages," says Callaway.

"We’re able to compete with other areas outside of Manhattan —

people who would look only at Greenwich or Long Island are coming

into Princeton, and because it’s a college town, are finding it a

very attractive place," says Pam Parsons, Callaway’s marketing

director.

And, even in this frenzied market, Princeton still seems relatively

tame compared to other places — such as northern New Jersey. Burgdorff

ERA reports that its Montclair office recently listed a house for

$389,000 and received 12 competing offers on it before ultimately

selling it for $527,500. The Montclair office reports that in the

past year it typically received 5 to 12 offers on every house and

that its average list price to sale price was 100 percent. It’s so

competitive in northern New Jersey that Burgdorff has established

a set of written guidelines for handling multiple offers.

Fueling the sense of urgency is the fact that the pickings are slim.

"The building industry doesn’t have any spec housing out there,"

says Peter Blicher, president of the Central Jersey Home Builders

Association. "If you get the MLS (Multiple Listings) book for

Mercer County, measure it’s thickness, and get the book from one a

year ago, you see it’s almost half its size — that means half

as many homes on the market right now."

Low supply and high demand have obviously driven prices up. The April

issue of New Jersey Monthly listed the sale price for houses in 559

towns and the relative change over five and ten-year periods. At a

1999 average sale price of $417,637, Princeton Township showed the

highest home prices in Mercer County, roughly equivalent with affluent

Tewksbury in Hunterdon County. In Princeton Borough, the average 1999

sale price was $349,983, roughly 10 percent more than the sale price

in 1990. (By way of comparison, Trenton’s average sale price was $73,207

in 1999 — the lowest in Mercer County — while average prices

in North Jersey climbed to more than $900,000.)

Finally, the massive accumulation of wealth in this area is making

it easier for people to buy outrageously-priced homes. According to

researchers at the Rutgers Bloustein School of Public Policy and Planning,

Mercer County sits at the center of a strip of counties known as the

Wealth Belt — a place of burgeoning big homes, SUVs, and wealthy

families. Somerset, Middlesex, and Hunterdon counties are the fastest

growing counties in the wealth belt, which also includes Monmouth,

Morris, and Mercer counties.

For those who made money in stocks, this is a logical time for making

a real estate investment, says Callaway. "Interest rates started

to climb upwards so people began to feel it was time," says Callaway.

"Many people have been in the stock market and feel that it has

reached a plateau and it’s better to take some money out of stocks

and put it into real estate."

The cornerstone of the market is still the four bedroom, two and a

half bath home, but if you can find it, you’re lucky. "We’re all

looking very hard to find new listings," he says. "I think

the market will slow down just because we have low inventory. I don’t

see anything in the economy that says it’s coming to a screeching

halt."

Building Inward,

Instead of Out

For a long time, developers and politicians closed their

eyes to the problem of suburban sprawl in New Jersey, calling it a

necessary evil to the creation of new jobs, new homes, and new wealth

for the state. Today, however, it has reached a crisis point. Having

carved into so much of Central Jersey’s gently sloping hills and farmland

to give homeowners an slice of the American Dream, developers have

come to the end of the proverbial road — there’s just very little

open space left to develop. What remains comes at too high a price,

due to price wars between developers and preservationists.

That could have builders like Peter Blicher, president of Central

Jersey Builders Association, and president of Pennington Properties,

stuck between a rock and a parking lot. But surprisingly enough, Blicher

and others in the building industry feel that there’s a future for

their industry, and in an unlikely area: putting an end to sprawl.

"We need to take the suburban areas and allow for in-fill development,"

says Blicher, "building closer in to shopping districts, rather

than making people drive out." Denser building — on under-utilized

lots in towns and suburbia — is the next frontier for the industry.

Government and developers would seem to be at odds — one wants

to save open space and beautiful vistas, the other wants to sell it,

but in fact, the relationship is far more complex, in part due to

zoning ordinances, says Blicher. "Many people in the government

and public think that we create sprawl, and we don’t," he says.

"The government causes that by requiring these large lots. When

you take land and say every house has to have four acres of land,

you create sprawl. People are just going to gobble up the land and

build giant houses on it. You’re not going to see neighborhoods built,

and neighborhoods are good."

Resistance comes from municipal governments unwilling to allow development

in what is essentially someone’s back yard. "The in-fill sites

in current suburbia are in someone’s yard, and the people who are

adjacent to that space want it as open space, and they’re voters,"

he says. And because the economy has been good, political leaders

in the various municipalities are taking the position that don’t want

any development, says Blicher. "The voters are the people who

already live in the community, so it’s becoming difficult for our

industry to find property that can get approvals for the type of development

people want."

A former real estate developer in Florida with a degree in architectural

design from Temple, Class of 1970, Blicher is all for building denser

communities and preserving traditional neighborhood. In his hometown

of Pennington, he’s already witnessed some of the more devastating

effects — not just esthetically and environmentally, but also

financially. "I think people need to wake us to the question,

where are our children going to live," he says. "Our daughter

is living at home right now because she can’t afford an apartment."

When home prices are inflated, that ultimately hurts communities and

businesses, Blicher argues. "What becomes important is that businesses

need to start speaking up, say you have to provide areas for development

of housing or we as businesses are going have to leave," he says,

"because businesses won’t be able to get employees, because employees

will say it’s too expensive to live here."

As for the state’s "smart growth" plan, to build in urban

centers where the infrastructure is already intact — Blicher is

less optimistic. "The state plan wants us to build in the urban

center, and the building industry would like us to do that, but people

don’t want to move there," he says. "The American Dream is

to move to suburbs, and we build what the market wants. It’s a whole

circle of things that we’re battling here."
