What’s Missing in the New Jersey MLS?

October 16, 2013

Right now, there may be entire neighborhoods full of homes for sale in your price range—and in the locations you love—but you won’t find them anywhere on the New Jersey MLS. Why? They’re new, and new homes aren’t always listed on the MLS. Sometimes it’s because the homes are under construction, but often it’s because the builders are confident they can sell without listing on the MLS.

To get a better picture of the New Jersey real estate market, it’s important to consult a variety of sites and sources, not just those that pull data from the MLS. Visit home builder websites. Ask your real estate agent to include new homes in the listings they show you. You may be surprised by how much you’ve been missing—especially if resale home inventory is scarce in your area. When it comes to finding your dream home, you owe it to yourself to know all your options.
