Inventory sluggish in Garwood – is it time to buy?

Garwood, NJ, is a beautiful borough in central Union County. Home to fewer than 5,000 people, the town is served by one elementary school serving students in grades K-8. High school students attend Clark’s Arthur L. Johnson High School.



Inventory: There are currently 12 single family homes offered for sale in Garwood at an average list price of $328,958.  Last April there were 15 homes actively listed. The average inventory over the last 12 months is 14 listings, so inventory in Garwood is a bit low. This could be good news for home sellers as a low supply often leads to higher prices. 





  • Average sale price in April, 2014 – $339,000
  • Average sale price in April, 2013 –  $428,000
  • Average sale price April 2013-April 2014 – $312,026

On average, 1-3 homes are sold in Garwood per month. April had only 1 sale. Average sale prices, therefore, are less significant because there is a wide variety of home styles and conditions.

+Days on Market:

The average home that sold in Garwood in April was sold after only 21 days on the market. Again, because there are rarely more than 3 homes sold in one month, averages become less meaningful.
