Photography For Real Estate Listings



Real Estate Photography

Hello Digital Photography Goodby MLS Books. Get Over It!

The Real Estate Listing Photograph was a very lonely creature when I first began my Real Estate Career. There was only one black and white real estate photograph that lived in the MLS Books. The MLS Books were about the size of the Yellow Pages Telephone Directory.

Today our Trend MLS and other search portals can feature up to 25 color property photos. This is a brochure showing photos of a pending sale in Chesterbrook that drew numerous showings, open house visitors and offers to purchase.

Chester County Real Estate Chesterbrook Homes



Chesterbrook Real Estate Condo,Town Homes,Sold In Tredyffrin

A First Time Home Buyer called me about a recent Chesterbrook Sale. She asked me about the Chesterbrook Condo and Town Homes real estate market in Tredyffrin Township.

We sat down together to take a close look at the Chesterbrook Real Estate Market and the Tredyffrin Township real estate market for condos and town homes. The Median Prices Chart shows homes for sale and homes that have sold in Chesterbrook and in Tredyffrin Township.  I plan to provide more Homes Sold Information to help home buyers and home sellers see that the level of market activity is greater here in Tredyffrin compared to news reports.

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?

Maybe we’re waiting for the stroke of a pen in January. Some people say that they’re waiting for the “bottom of the market”. Read the rest of this entry »

Tredyffrin Real Estate|3rd Quarter Median House Solds



Sold (green), Under Contract (blue), Expired (purple)

The Third Quarter Median House Sold Report for Tredyffrin Township in Chester County, comparison between September 2006 and September 2008, shows a real estate market that’s holding it’s own despite incredible waves of good, bad, worse and confusing news from the Credit Markets.

Since I’m a glass is “half full” kind of person, I love bringing you some good news.

A recent report from our Trident Mortgage Company, for example, reports that Trident is sound and well funded with money to lend. My Trident representatives tell me that they have not turned away a single borrower for lack of funds to lend. Now that’s good news and good management by Trident.

The Median For Sale Price is down 2% from $489,900 in 2006 to $479,000 in 2008, while the Median Sold Price for the same period has increased 22% from $339,000 in 2006 to $525,000 in September of 2008. 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.
