Unfortunately none of us can predict the future; none of us really knows for sure where the market will head tomorrow, or down the road; therefore purchase in the area that bests suits your finances, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc. today, and worry about the future when that tomorrow arrives...... more
Once you define what "stable" means for you as a homebuyer, I recommend traveling to the different neighborhoods to determine what area you like best, then contact a realtor who can show you the homes that best fit your needs.
Let me know if you have other questions.

According to TREND, over the past year, more than 50 properties sold in Drexel Park Gardens, over 30 in Briarcliffe and just seven in Westbrook Park. It's difficult to predict long-term market value based on these numbers, but it's a start.
If you'd like more information, contact me directly... thank you!... more
Here is the date for my upcoming seminar! Don’t forget to call the office to register!Learn what is going on in the market place today. There is a time and place to get the answers you need – and this
A basement is not considered part of the home's total square footage. We do post an unfinished total square footage amount. IF the basement can be finished and considered living space then I would advertise it as such.
Just to let you know, realtors are not suppose to discuss crime but you can call local police departments to get the info.
As far as areas, I lean towards Philadelphia as that's what I am most familiar with and I think it has a better rental market as you have a more dense population. I live in NE Philly and depending on what area, they can be good rental markets. But once you get up there in rent, I think NE Philly is a bad option for that price point. Some areas of NE Philly are in very high demand (Torresdale) and are booming with new construction in the past 6months. A good area to look at is near Holy Family University as the campus is growing and students will need to find rentals and that can part of your rental plan.

There is know on universal MLS but several different listing services and it depends which company the Realtors are using in your area. I know that you would like it to reset to one day which may look good in this market but most Realtors representing buyers in today’s market will check to see how long a home has been on the market.

The best place to look for that information is the MLS. I would talk to someone who subscribes to that service, such as a Realtor or an appraiser.

No, do not buy now. If you have to move you will lose about 6% in realtor commission.
6% does not sounds so bad? On a $100,000 house that is $6,000. Then add in closing costs to buy a house and it is likely to be $1,000 or MUCH more. We are also in an environment of falling prices. They could go lower.
When you are sure you will stay in the area maybe it is the time to buy. Looking at moving within 7 years will in most cases hurt you more than renting would financially.
Look at the blog below. It gives an easy way to figure out if renting or buying makes more sense. It includes a 30 year amortization table showing you just how much money you would save by buying or renting at any time frame you wish doing simple calculations.
Honestly, if my client (the buyer) is not interested in the property - we move on.
There's no need to contact the listing agent if we're not interested.
As a Listing Agent, and am aware of what agent came through my listing with buyer's, I gather the business cards and contact the buyer's agent to get feedback. Usually my seller will let me know if there are cards left on the counter.
I feel it's my job to do this. The buyer's agents are usually very honest & give me feedback on what their thoughts are. Was the property listed to high? They were in other homes with more upgrades & amentities. Location? etc., etc. I can turn some of their feedback into a more positive experience for the next buyer.
If I receive positive info., I pass it along to my seller. If it's "constructive" negatives, like the house needed to be cleaned up, etc. I will pass that along too. Nothing ever offensive.
Best of luck with the sale of your home!... more
Hello Home Seller,
Your agent should be advertising your open house for you and getting all the required marketing completed for you. The agent might not want your adress listed so they can filter the requests to view the property. If you list the adress you might have random people knocking on your door. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me.
