Delaware County PA Home Sales Continue to Improve!

April 10, 2017

Delaware County PA home sales continue to improve in 2017.

It just keeps getting better. As of April 5, 2017 throughout Delaware County, there were 2312 properties on the market, 1050 under contract, and 1312 properties have settled since the first of the year.

These numbers all improved over 2016. Today last year, there were 2879 homes on the market, 1000 properties under contract, and 1206 properties sold. IMG_20170408_111128The 2017 numbers represent a 20% drop in inventory, 5% increase in properties under contract, and 8% increase in sales year to date.

They have improved every year for the last five years. Compared to 2012, the 2017 statistics show a 35% drop in homes on the market (from 3,570 in 2012), a 26% increase in those under contract (from 828 in 2012) and a healthy 50% increase in completed sales (from 869 Homes in 2012)

Since the election in November, we have continued to see a strong increase in sales and activity throughout the area. There has also been quite a bit of variation from township to township, so not all areas have been benefiting to the same extent, but the trend today is your friend.

Quick 2015 Delaware County PA Wrap Up

January 5, 2016

So how did it go in Delaware County real estate last year? – Pretty Good!

Although there has been a wide variation in activity throughout the county and townships, the overall market has continued to strengthen.

From January 1, 2015 through January 4, 2016, there were 6,122 reported sales on the MLS. This compares to only 5,465 at the beginning of last year, a rise of over 12%. It could be worseLikewise, pending sales have grown from 622 in 2015 to 660 in 2016, an increase of 6%. Active for sale home inventory has also decreased from 2,580 active lisitngs to 2,507, a fall of over 2.5%.

This looks even more promising when compared to the depth of the market in 2011. On January 4, 2012, there were 3,142 homes on the market (25% higher), 480 homes pending (27% lower), and there had only been 4089 sales in 2011 (33% lower).

Based on the local market and economy, it appears that we should have another solid year in 2016. This could be disrupted, however, depending on the major potential economic and political impacts currently developing around the world.

Call me if you are interested in more information on the market in your particular area.
