philadelphia real estate market: "It's A Buyer's Market." True or False? - 02/29/12 06:33 AM
It's a buyer's market. Is that a true or false statement? Hmm...I would imagine many would say it is true.  So I asked a few people what they thought. See my video clip:

Looks like most people believe that it is TRUE that we are in a buyer's market but I beg to differ and I challenge the popular belief, particularly in my Philadelphia Real Estate Market.
In a video clip I did a few weeks ago, I featured one of my clients as he was looking at trinity homes in Queen Village and Bella Vista. Recently we wrote an … (4 comments)

philadelphia real estate market: Buyers - Would You Prefer an $80,000 Incentive or $8,000 ? - 06/26/11 01:37 AM
Buyers - Would You Prefer an $80,000 Incentive or $8,000 ?
In Philadelphia, the spring market has not been too "springy".  This spring certainly has not been like spring 2010, "the end of the world" craze where the inventory was non-existent and there was an insane rush for buyers to meet the deadline to qualify for the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit to receive the $8,000 incentive.  That incentive propelled the market last year:  it was a boon for sellers locally and provided necessary support to keep the housing market afloat nationally.
So what about today ?   The housing market in Philadelphia continues to … (26 comments)

Squeezing Lemons and Seizing Opportunity
How often have you come across someone that says I could have bought this property or that property for some absurdly low amount of money ?   And then they live in regret and tell the same "would of should of could of" story over and over to all of their friends.   And for you stock market followers, remember when Apple was trading at $10 a share before the company reinvented itself ?  Imagine that...  Now it is close to $300 !!!  If you only knew then what you know now, right ?
The same situation applies to … (55 comments)

philadelphia real estate market: "It's the End of the World As We Know It..." or is it? - 09/01/10 01:15 AM
REM sang it and now we are singing it too. "It's the end of the world as we know it." Of course, we are talking about the end of the Real Estate market. But hasn't that been the hit song sung by CNBC and the news headliners for the last 2 years? So what is the reason for the end of the world this time? Let's recap.
On August 24th it certainly seemed as if the housing market was falling apart at the seams when the National Association of Realtors (NAR) announced the sales forecast for the 2010 year fell short. … (49 comments)

philadelphia real estate market: So what happens now in a Post Tax Credit World ? - 05/23/10 02:35 AM
The Obama Tax Credit days have run their long mile and now most of the buyers and sellers who participated in the incentive will have have officially crossed the finish line by June 30th, 2010. As a direct result of the Tax credit Incentive, we enjoyed a May and June with settlement-packed weeks and days. Most of those settlements included buyers who qualified for the first time home-buyer tax credit.  It has been an amazing run the first part of this year for us and for the Philadelphia Housing Market. That was absolutely not the case in many other counties and … (49 comments)
