Thanks for clarifying what you need. Turns out you're in luck!
The New Jersey Association of Realtors regularly publishes summaries
of house price statistics based on reporting from the National
Association of Realtors' private MLS listing database -- this is the
listing information that professionals use, and that is not routinely
available to the general public.
The New Jersey reports can be found here:
Quarterly reports are available from 2001 through 4th Quarter of 2004.
The two most recent reports are these:
and the data for Morris County is in Table 10:
Median Sales Price and Number of Existing Single-Family Homes Sold for
Areas in New Jersey
2004 and 2003 4th Quarter Prices and Units Sold in Morris County:
$437,100 -- $390,300 -- 12% year-to-year increase
1,159 -- 1,175 -- 1.4% decrease in units
2004 and 2003 3rd Quarter Prices and Units Sold in Morris County:
$483,700 -- $426,500 -- 13.4% increase
1,664 -- 1,663 -- 0.1% increase in units
If I'm reading the numbers correctly (and I think I am), the prices
have actually dropped somewhat in the most recent quarter, from
$483,700 in Q3, to $437,100 in Q4.
By accessing each quarterly report, you can readily construct the
price trends in the county for the past four years. You may want to
contact NJAR to find out when 2005 data will be made available:
