Why Is NOW the Time to List Homes for Sale in Bryn Mawr?

Homes for Sale in Bryn MawrMany people think that Fall is too late to list homes for sale in Bryn Mawr. This fall, the real estate market is still very active. We just posted Radnor home sales for September—25 homes were closed in September, which was the same number sold in August, and the rest of the Main Line is seeing this year’s seller’s market continue as well.

Reasons to List Homes for Sale in Bryn Mawr and other Main Line Communities This Fall

We have already mentioned the steady home sales in the area, which is very encouraging, and we have a few more good reasons to list your home this fall.

The number of homes for sale is still relatively low.

The inventory of homes for sale in Bryn Mawr, Malvern and other Main Line communities is still lower than the demand, so competition remains high for the available homes. Some homeowners have delayed because they were concerned about being able to find the right house to replace their current homes. However, if you are in a position where those concerns are less pressing, such as relocation or retiring to a vacation home, selling now is a very good idea. Some of our sellers are renting a winter home in a new location to “try out” the area for retirement.  We think that is a great idea.

The market is right for upsizing.

For homeowners who are ready to buy a larger home, more homes are available to choose from. If you have a low to mid-level home and are looking to move up, you are in a perfect position to take advantage of the seller’s market for your home, and still get the best price possible on your dream home.

According to CoreLogic, prices in Pennsylvania rose only .1 percent month over month, but they are still rising. In fact, CoreLogic predicts that home costs will rise 4.3% by August of 2018. So if you are planning to buy a new upscale home, you will save money by doing so now, and get the benefit of knowing that you can sell your current home quickly and profitably.

Buyers who are looking know what they want.

In this extended seller’s market with low inventory, buyers have been forced to be ready to move quickly when they find the right house. Those who are still in the market for a home have been preapproved and are prepared to make the best offer that they can. These factors add up to shorter time on the market, quicker price negotiation, more reasonable inspection requests, and shorter closing periods.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
