Delaware County PA Home Sales Continue to Improve

Delaware County PA home sales continue to improve in 2017.

It just keeps getting better. As of April 5, 2017 throughout Delaware County, there were 2312 properties on the market, 1050 under contract, and 1312 properties have settled since the first of the year.

These numbers all improved over 2016. Today last year, there were 2879 homes on the market, 1000 properties under contract, and 1206 properties sold. Caleb Pusey House 1683The 2017 numbers represent a 20% drop in inventory, 5% increase in properties under contract, and 8% increase in sales year to date.

They have improved every year for the last five years. Compared to 2012, the 2017 statistics show a 35% drop in homes on the market (from 3,570 in 2012), a 26% increase in those under contract (from 828 in 2012) and a healthy 50% increase in completed sales (from 869 Homes in 2012)

Since the election in November, we have continued to see a strong increase in sales and activity throughout the area. There has also been quite a bit of variation from township to township, so not all areas have been benefiting to the same extent, but the trend today is your friend.
