Happy New Year, Union County!

With the new year comes new data, and one of the most compelling numbers we’ve crunched this week has been the change in prices from 2012 to 2014.

County-wide, the average home in Union County sold for 3.9% more in 2014  than the average home in 2012. Not every town, however, saw an increase and some towns were bigger winners than others. Garwood is the biggest winner over the past 2 years – the average sale price of a home in Garwood increased by 40% from 2012 to 2014. Also on the winner’s board was Clark with a 16.3% increase. Mountainside saw a 14.7% increase in prices and Rahway is up by 14.5%. Fanwood home prices increased by 12.6% during this time period and Springfield increased by 9.9%. Lesser gains were seen by Westfield at 4/2%, Linden at 1.5% , and Union at 0.8%.

Three Union County towns saw decreases in home values when 2014 average home sales were compared to 2012. Cranford homes lost 0.5% value, Scotch Plains lost 1.8% value and Kenilworth comes in with the biggest loss of 9.4%.
