Happy New Year 2009 From Chester County Main Line Pa Today



Wish you could be everywhere at once to usher in the New Year? Try some of the International Web Cams from Times Square to D.C to London and Waikiki.

Do you ever feel that there’s just not enough time in the day to do all you want to do. There will be a leap second added at the end of 2008 for all of the atomic clocks to sync with the true rotation of the earth so that the Sun remains overhead at precisely 12 noon.  Seems that the Earth is occasionally a little wobbly (gosh, do you think?). Just a little more evidence, if you needed it, that 2008 is one of the quirkiest years ever. Read the rest of this entry »

Schuylkill Township Chester County Market Report



Schuylkill Township Chester County Pa Market Report November 2006 Vs 2008*

The Real Estate Market Report for Schuylkill Township in Chester County Pa comparison between November 2006 and November 2008 shows two of the three  Supply and Demand indicators for Schuylkill Township dropping. The number of homes for sale, Months Supply of Inventory, is up 103% from 29.5 months to 60 months of inventory.

Keep in mind that these numbers for transactions are statistically small. Nevertheless, this looks like the picture of a real estate marketplace waiting for some official good news and a very strong Buyers Market. A good opportunity for those who are qualified and ready. If the median “for sale price” moderated a little more, the Inventory build up would likely start to move. Read the rest of this entry »

Tredyffrin PA – Puzzled By The Real Estate Market



Tredyffrin, Chester County Pennsylvania Real Estate Market Report

We’re puzzled in Tredyffrin Township Chester County.

From what I hear at my Open Houses, you’re puzzled about our real estate market and how it compares to other real estate markets in the news and around the country.

Tredyffrin Township, like much of the Philadelphia Suburban Real Estate Market, just doesn’t quite fit the popular real estate market mold that’s frequently commented on in the news these days. Fortunately for us, we haven’t experienced the carnage of other real estate markets.

Confidence Crises or Reality Crises?

So, we’re Waiting and Waiting  – Who knows what we’re waiting for?
