to $225,000 last month, down 18.2%. The total number of single-family sales in
the county stayed flat. The number of townhouse and condo sales also dropped in
Cape May County, by about 20 percent, but values stayed stronger for those

popular in many of the county’s beach towns, went from $418,000 last year to
$416,500 last month, down less than half of 1 percent. Days on the market
