Builders are buying up land in Chester County!

Opportunities for landowners in Chester County are rising as builder confidence rises. By now every body knows about the shortage of homes for sale, resale and new construction. We currently are at about 40% of the number of homes listed compared to 2019. That is a significant shortfall.

Because of this, homes in Chester County, Delaware and Montgomery Counties and along the Main Line are seeing price rises giving sellers increased equity. However, the higher interest rates and lack of inventory are not allowing many of these homeowners to take advantage of this equity and buy something larger.

For the past few years builders have not been confident in the market along with the challenge of finding workers to build the homes for which they have filed permits. But that confidence is rising and builders are out looking for land to buy. Chester County is specifically interesting as it still has large swathes of land on which to build, plentiful employment opportunities, good school districts and is close enough to major towns to provide a strong market of buyers.

Land sales can take longer as builders need due diligence to know what they can build and what will be allowed by a township.

Landowners in Chester County should take advantage of this opportunity and contact Nick Vandekar, Realty ONE Group Advocates to represent them, by cell or text 610-203-4543, office 484-237-2055, or email Nick@VandekarTeam.com.

I look forward to meeting and discussing with you whatever size land you might have, there are large builders like Toll Bros., NVR Homes etc. and smaller custom builders all looking for lots on which to build.

Very cool, Nick! I like to see a bit of creativity when people buy up land. It’s probably just a corporate grab, but I said do something fun with the land or build some fun housing for people who need it. Bring something a little extra to the neighborhood, you know??

The only challenge I see is, not enough affordable housing being built. But hopefully this will change as more inventory becomes available Laura Cerrano

Hello Nick - this seems like positive news.  Good luck to the buyers as well as those who will benefit from an increase in inventory of properties for sale.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - an interesting observation! Just yesterday I saw a large section of Flower Mound with the bull dozers out there knocking down the beautiful mature trees. And I believed in the Tree Ordinance and open spaces. Well, something has changed here too.
