In a milestone quarter, prices for one to four family dwellings in
Downtown Jersey City eclipsed those of Hoboken for the first time since 1996 when MLS data launched.
While 1-4 family home prices in Hoboken and Downtown Jersey City softened from Q4 2016, Hoboken’s fall was far more drastic. The median house price of 1-4 family homes in Downtown Jersey City continued to strengthen compared to the same quarter last year, up 10% to $1.40 million. Hoboken exhibited further weakness, with the median house price of 1-4 family homes down -17% since the first quarter of 2016 to $1.31 million – below Downtown for the first time in 19 years. The highest 1-4 family sale for the quarter was a single-family townhouse on Hudson Street in Hoboken for $2.425 million, substantially below both the list price of $2.95 million and the highest sale last quarter.
Condominium sales prices in Downtown Jersey City have strengthened enormously since last quarter (+5%) and year over year (+12%). Hoboken’s condominium market has remained effectively flat over the quarter (-1%) and has only inched upwards over the year (+3%). The highest condominium sale, a condo on Washington Street in Hoboken, surpassed the highest 1-4 family sale this quarter trading for $2.499 million or around $923 per square foot.

“River View Observer Best Pick Developers for Jersey City.”
Brothers Eric Silverman and Paul Silverman have been developing real estate in Jersey City since 1981, but they are not ordinary developers. While others are making a splash building modern skyscrapers and luxury condos on the waterfront, the Silverman brothers have spent the last three decades quietly transforming former warehouses into mixed-use buildings, schools into residences and abandoned storefronts into fashionable shops throughout Jersey City.
The brothers founded SILVERMAN, now the foremost developer of mixed-use residential buildings, historic landmarks and creative retail destinations in Jersey City, and today serve as a major engine behind the city’s revitalization. The company provides affordable and market-rate housing options to the greater community of Jersey City while building family oriented neighborhoods and supporting local retailers.
