Flying in the face of these challenges,affordable markets in Southern Hudson County soared,posting significant year over year increases in median house prices.
Conversely,increased property taxes and macro factors impacted localized premium marketswith their median house prices retreating – Hoboken by 9% and Downtown Jersey City by 4%.

Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"Patrick Southern listed and sold my Hoboken condo and I could not have been happier. We talked a number of times over three years as I rented out the property as an investment. As soon as I was ready to pull the trigger and list, Patrick was there to work with me every step of the way from determining the list price, to discussing a sale strategy, to completion of the sale. I received multiple offers and was very pleased with the offer and price I ultimately accepted. I live in San Francisco and so it was of the utmost importance that I have an agent who I could trust to run the show from 3000 miles away. Patrick and his stellar staff did just that--taking care of necessary details, getting documents as necessary to me on the West Coast, communicating with me in a timely manner despite the time difference, and generally making the process smooth for me even though I was far away. I am an agent myself in San Francisco and so I know how great Patrick is. Highest marks for knowledge of the market, professionalism, and responsiveness."
