January Real Estate Market Data

Real Estate Agent with Weichert Realtors

Ok.....statistics and numbers can be quite boring, but they do serve a purpose.  So let's see if we can present the latest stats in a useful way.  

Chester County first: 

                                                            January 2011               January 2010

Homes available for Sale                         3300                            3263                      

Homes that went pending                         304                              310

Absorption Rate                                        9.5 mos                        9 mos

        (Inventory Accumulation)

Homes that settled (sold)                         236                              218

Median Settled Price                             $300,000                     $322,000 


And now for Delaware County 

Homes available for Sale                         3335                            3028                      

Homes that went pending                         247                              323

Median Settled Price                             $215,000                     $187,000 


Please remember that these are just numbers, intended to give a high-level overview of market conditions.  Also, they were compiled by our local MLS provider, I would personally calculate things a bit differently, but for consistency I thought it best to follow their lead. 

In future posts, we will take a closer look at some of these and delve into what (we think) they actually mean. 

Until then.....feel free to send any and all questions.....
