First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Cliff Hanger



First Time Home Buyer Credit Cliff Hanger .  .  .  To Be Continued!

First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Cliff HangerThe Senate is working on approving  The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit Extension. Part of the proposal is to Expand The Home Buyers Credit for existing home sellers/home buyers but so far there is no Senate Vote. Possibly next week there may be a vote ready to go to the House and from there who knows?

From Soap Operas like Days of Our Lives  (“tune in tomorrow for the next exciting episode”), to Dallas, we’re drawn to cliff hangers. Who didn’t tune in  to find out, Who Shot JR? Read the rest of this entry »

Tredyffrin Third Quarter Real Estate Absorption



Mops, Sponges and The Months Supply of Inventory

AbsorptionRateMoplThe Third Quarter Tredyffrin Real Estate Absorption Rate is looking more like a normal real estate market instead of one drowning in inventory.

Some months I have felt like I needed a huge mop to soak up the excess inventory. And in some markets that’s still the image that resonates.

But here in Tredyffrin Township for the Third Quarter Real Estate Market, we’re showing signs of recovery. The months supply of inventory is down to 5.6 months.  Keep in mind that the MSI and the Absorption Rate is based on the assumption that no new inventory is coming on the market, which is never the case.

The Months Supply of Inventory and Absorption Rates are averages, so there are definitely properties selling within days and even some with more than one offer and others, especially in luxury home price ranges, that are languishing. Read the rest of this entry »

Blog Action Day 2009 Global Climate Change Think Small



Blog Action Day 2009Blog Action Day

2009 l Climate Change

Today is Blog Action Day 2009 l Global Climate Change is the topic that Bloggers around the world have agreed to write about with the goal of raising awareness on one critical issue that impacts each of us.  Climate Change and Climate Control are big issues! Big enough to be overwhelming. But we need to resist the temptation to do nothing. We each need to accept responsibility for the future our planet in big and small ways.

I’m a proud Mom who’s often inspired by my two children and 3 precious grand children. As a real estate agent I spend my professional life helping families. And so it’s no surprise to me that our children and young people are the hope of our future. We need to educate ourselves as well as support and follow the efforts of our Children For Climate Change.

When my children were young they loved the children’s literature  from a series called, The Borrowers by Mary Norton. The Borrowers were a secret Read the rest of this entry »

iPhone 15 Must Have Apps For Real Estate Agents



Judy Peterson’s 15 Must Have iPhone Apps For Real Estate

Judy's iPhone Real Estate AppsSo here I am now 4 months into in-tech love with my iPhone. I keep rewriting this post about how wonderful the iPhone is for Real Estate Agents. And the reason for the constant editing is that it seems that every day I find another great App that comes onto the market that’s helpful to Realtors® in the daily practice of real estate.

It’s an awesome Christmas morning feeling when I see that little update light go on telling me that there’s a new exciting feature for one of my Apps. One of life’s simple pleasures!

Now, I have some good friends that I respect. They have brand x phones or hand helds. Are you a Realtor with a brand x phone/hand held?

Give it away.  Or sell it to your friend, sister, brother or neighbor who is not in real estate and get an iPhone. Do I really mean that? I do. Read the rest of this entry »

Tredyffrin Real Estate August 2009 Report



TredyffrinAug2009MSIThere are no shortage of opinions about our current real estate market. Just about everyone has become a real estate prognosticator.

I will say that I’ve never seen anything quite like this market in my 18 years as a Realtor.  More than usual, the Buyers and Sellers appear to be marching to the beat of a different drummer. This is apparent in the disconnect between the August increase in the Median For Sale Price and the drop in the Median Sold Price and Under Contract Price.

From the 5% median For Sale price increase of $439,900 over the August 2007 Median For Sale Price of $419,500 to the 6% Median Sold price drop ($435,000) in August 2009 as compared to August 2007 Median Sold Price ($462,450), it appears that, at least here in Tredyffrin Township, Buyers and Sellers perceive the market direction very differently.
