Last week we looked at the 2014 selling prices of Rumson homes by the number of bedrooms, and today we’ll do the same for Fair Haven. For Fair Haven as a whole, 2014’s median sales price was $715,000 (7% higher than in 2013), and the average sales price was $827,075 (3% higher than the year before).

Searching through my own database of Fair Haven home sales, here’s the breakdown by the number of bedrooms:

Beds        Number            Average            Average            Sales $ vs.                 Median                                       Sold              Sales Price      Listing Price         Listing $                    Price

2                      5                 $327,400        $347,980                94.1%                  $325,000

3                     24                $645,250        $666,669                96.8%                  $535,000

4                     52                $882,827        $919,833                96.0%                  $792,500

5                       9               $1,012,111     $1,064,544                 95.1%                  $750,000

In addition, two 6-bedroom Fair Haven homes sold in 2014, one on Battin Road for $1,990,000 and the other on Kemp Avenue for $2,495,000.

The numbers above should help you if you’re thinking of buying a home in Fair Haven this year. If you’re a young family and had looked only at Fair Haven’s overall median sales price of $715,000 (the price at which 50% of the homes sold for more and 50% sold for less) you might have concluded that you can’t afford to buy in Fair Haven. However, when you look at 3 bedroom homes and see that the median sales price was $535,000 you get an entirely different picture.

It’s clear that most Fair Haven homes have 4 bedrooms, and if you’re looking for a 4 bedroom home, the actual median price is higher than Fair Haven’s overall median price. In a bit of a surprise, the median price for 5 bedroom homes was lower than that for 4 bedroom homes (but only 9 homes sold with 5 bedrooms).

I’ve lived in Fair Haven since 1975 and I love this town. If you’d like to look at homes in Fair Haven I’d be glad to show you what’s available in your budget range- give me a call! You’re probably already looking for homes online, and that’s great. However, remember my recommendation: if you find a home you like, don’t call the Listing Agent (even if it’s me). The Listing Agent has a fiduciary responsibility to negotiate the highest selling price for the Seller; you want a Realtor® acting as your Buyer’s Agent to negotiate the lowest selling price for you.
