The Federal Reserve of New York has released a report on year-over-year home prices, comparing February 2024 to February 2023. Cape May led all New Jersey counties with a 16% increase.

The 16% increase represents the highest the county’s index has been since the pandemic years, when the county saw increases of well over 20% each year. The numbers suggest an expectation of continued health in the county’s real estate market.

Nationally, the increase in home prices was 5.5%.

The New York Fed maintains home price index data that is updated monthly for 1,200 U.S. counties. New Jersey’s 21 counties are part of that index every month.
