Chester County Real Estate Market Report

Chester County Real Estate Market Report-Dodging The Tsunami

The Chester County Real Estate Market Report* for the end of the 4th Quarter December 2008 is a picture of a slow real estate market. Still a Buyers Market in Chester County with 16.5 months of inventory, but not a raging Buyers Market. This is a one year comparison between December 2007 and December 2008 unlike my previous two year comparisons.

Over 5,000 homes sold in Chester County last year, despite the pounding litany of negative and often shocking news. The real estate tsunami may have passed by this part of the Philadelphia Suburbs. We’re down but we’re not out. Yet.

Inventory needs to clear out as you can easily see from the Months Supply of Inventory for the Year. And for that, prices need to come down. With the Median For Sale Price actually ticking up from $369,900 to $372,900, you might even say that some may not have heard the message from the marketplace. Skillful and educated pricing is the key to home Sellers success in attracting motivated and qualified buyers.

A Sprouting Spring Real Estate Market For Chester County?

January often has the earmarks of a dormant real estate market in our region of the Northeast; the weather, the holidays and foot ball games are all factors. Just like those seed sprouts under ground, we put our real estate faith and hopes on the Spring Market starting to bloom about the end of January and February. Personally, I’m betting on the sprouts!
