Will Spring Thaw the Frozen Philadelphia Real Estate Market?

Get the real story about the Philly real estate market.

The spring home selling season is usually under way by Super Bowl Sunday, but it got a late start this year between the weather and the economy. This wait and the fear of rising interest rates seem to have released the pent-up demand among buyers who have been out in droves lately. We should start to see the back-log of inventory decline for well- priced house that are updated to today’s standards. Buyers’ expectations are also greater. Buyers in today’s market are a lot less willing to commit to homes that need work.

SELLERS: Pricing your Philadelphia home correctly from the beginning is vital. However the spring market may present a new opportunity to aggressive re-price and move a floundering property.
