10 Ways Happy Home Buyers Plan To Buy



Buyers Who Plan To Buy and The Realtors® Who Love Them!

Judy Peterson Accredited Buyer Agent Home Buyers Plan To Buy for Main Line Chester County Pa

I’ve been helping Main Line Chester County Home Buyers Plan to Buy since 1992. One thing I know for sure, my happiest Buyers have a Home Buyers Plan To Buy.  A Home Buyers Plan to Buy ensures your home purchase will be a great home, a good investment, and will save you time, money and aggravation.

I’m a Realtor® and an Accredited Buyer Agent. My style is to work with Buyers as a Real Estate “Consultant”. What’s the difference? A Real Estate Consulting relationship is an ongoing relationship that focuses on YOU! I frequently get calls from Buyers who say something like, “We saw this house and we’d like to go see it today”. We can do that, but…

If there are 10 Steps To Buying A Property, that’s like starting with Step #9, or “putting the cart before the horse”as they say. Read the rest of this entry »

Main Line PA Chester County|Photo Friday



Main Line PA Today Real Estate ~ Photo Friday

Gardening Around The Main Line and Chester County Pennsylvania.

Sunflower Main Line Chester County Real Estate

Our Photo Friday selection is real estate related in spirit. I love Sunflowers. Every year I plant some seeds in the early Spring and then watch in amazement as the Sunflowers reach for the sky, from a small beginning to a glorious finish in the Fall. Reminds me of the adage,  “mighty oaks from little acorns grow”.  Sunflowers give us a glimpse of beauty, drama AND usefulness. Welcome to nature’s banquet table in the Fall when Sunflowers go to seed. The edible Sunflower variety is what you want. I like Park Seeds. They’ll send you a nice catalog in late Winter for Spring gardening dreams.  Main Line Gardens on Paoli Pike in Malvern is one of my favorite Garden Centers on the Main Line and in Chester County. Also Waterloo Gardens in Devon and Exton offer good choices. Read the rest of this entry »

Fall Through Sales have increased in our current market. There’s no more painful7 Ways For Sellers To Recover If Your Sale Falls Through situation for Sellers than the “Fall Through” Sale. Our Trend MLS shows a greater number of Withdrawn Re-listed homes.

Absorption Rate~Months Supply of Inventory Tools



How Do I Calculate The Absorption Rate and The Months Supply of Inventory?

absorption-rate.gifThe Absorption Rate has historically been used in New Construction planning and financing.  Builders need to know how many homes can be absorbed into any given market before the first shovel goes in the ground. Lead time, financing and market shifts are unforgiving when you plan and build in a Sellers Market, but sell in a Buyers Market, such as we have now. However unscientific, a savvy Realtor can almost predict a market downturn or recovery by watching the incentive giveaways. How do we define a Buyers Market? It’s generally considered to be anything over about six months of inventory.

Absorption Rate and Months Supply of Inventory can help Sellers and Buyers understand the market. A Realtor who doesn’t use these indicators is like a violinist without a bow or a mechanic without a socket wrench ~ you might not hear the music or know how to fix it when the market shifts. These simple calculations can produce some elegant results: Read the rest of this entry »

Homes For Sale Tredyffrin – Months Supply of Inventory



Market Trends May 2008 ~ Months Supply of Inventory*

The Months Supply of Inventory (MSI), Tredyffrin Township, comparison from May 2006 to May 2008 shows a drop in the number of days on the market beginning in January 2008 and an overall MSI of 7.5 Months. This is a significant increase over May of 2007 at 3.0 months. However, May of 2007 was very low and as we now know, not sustainable. If you take a look at the Average Days On The market for sold properties in the period, you can see that while there are many choices for Buyers, homes that are well priced, in good condition and desirable locations are selling in a reasonable number of days.

Buyers Market? Sellers Market? ~

The Months Supply of Inventory is calculated by first determining the Absorption Rate. These two indicators are used to determine the answer to the Buyers Market-Sellers Market question. This is a picture of a Moderate Buyers Market where there are good opportunities for qualified Buyers and for Sellers.
