As of this morning, the MLS shows that both New Castle County DE and Delaware County PA have closed exactly the same number of properties - 4,477 properties sold in each county year to date.
This also happened in June for Chester County and Delaware County so I thought this would be a good time for another quick sales update for Delaware County PA, Chester County PA, and New Castle County DE.
Delaware County PA: Currently there are 1,367 properties on the market or coming soon, 857 properties pending, and 4,477 properties sold. This compares to 2018 with 1,736 on the market, 912 pending, and 4,635 sold. We are currently running about 3.5% behind last year in properties sold along with lower inventories and lower pending.
New Castle County DE: Currently there are 1,451 properties on the market or coming soon, 901 pending, and 4,477 sold. In 2018, there were 1,717 on the market, 967 pending, and 4732 sold. This puts us about 5% behind last year also with lower active listings and pending properties.
Chester County PA: Chester County is now the strongest area with 1,705 on the market, 1047 pending, and 4,571 sold year to date. In 2018, there were 2,083 on the market, 1,167 pending, and 4,808 sold. These numbers also put us about 5% behind last year.
Overall the market activity continues to show weakness throughout all three counties compared to 2018. On the other hand, we have gained versus the weak numbers we saw in June . With the continued volatility in the econmy, markets, and activity worldwide, the market could continue to exhibit some weakness through the remainder of the year.
