All of New Jersey’s 21 counties have less than a 7 months’ supply of inventory. The basic formula for calculating an appreciating/depreciating market goes like this: a 7 - month supply of inventory in any municipality means the town has a stable market.

New Jersey consists of 21 counties. Of the 21, there are 9 Counties with less than a 1.5 - month supply of inventory. There are 9 Counties with a 1.5 – 1.9 - month supply of inventory. There are 3 Counties with a greater than 2 – month supply of inventory. This is unprecedented.
