We’re just one month into the new year and Hudson Valley’s Real Estate Market shows no signs of slowing down. This past January, home buyers and sellers continued to see the housing frenzy the area has been experiencing since last Spring. Low inventory paired with low interest rates and an incredibly high demand for the Hudson Valley has fueled bidding wars amongst buyers, ultimately raising the median sale price for homes and properties simply flying off the market. Here’s a closer look at how the Rockland, Orange, and Bergen counties faired in the first month of the new year.
