Let's talk about Delaire Landing a gated waterfront community. What a wonderful place to live. Properties here are not staying on the market long. People question, "What is the Value? Once one of the best kept secrets in the city of Philadelphia is now well known. There are different styles of condos to meet different needs and tastes. There are also apartments within this community for those not sure if they are ready  or want the responsibility to to own. These apartments have a waiting list, some units waiting up to five years. Don't get me wrong not all units .The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Flowers are changed with each season. The trees are kept manicured and trimmed. It is also home to wildlife. You will forget you are in the City of Philadelphia. My neighbor called me o...

 Rumor has it that Elon Musk wants to buy Coca Cola and use the original recipe. Yes did you know that cocaine was in the original Coca Cola. Well never fear because even Elon Musk can not afford to buy Coke. Now would that be considered dealing? Come on everyone needs to laugh these days don't they?Let's change things around a little this week and talk Real Estate first . In some townships after a house goes under contract  you have to get certifications for the Use and Occupancy Permits. Now of course this costs the seller money. Electrical people come out to make sure the house is up to code. They test all the outlets and the electrical panel box.  This is  kind of overkill as when the buyer had the home inspected .This was already  done by the buyer's home inspector. Next the seller...

Is It Enough To Offer Asking Price in Today’s Housing Market? If you’re planning to buy a home this season, you’re probably thinking about what you’ll need to do to get your offer accepted. In previous years, it was common for buyers to try and determine how much less than the asking price they could offer to still get the home. The buyer and seller would then negotiate and typically agree on a revised price that was somewhere between the buyer’s bid and the home’s initial asking price. In today’s real estate market, buyers shouldn’t shop for a home with the same expectations Things Are Different Today Today’s housing market is anything but normal. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the average home that’s sold today: Receives 4.8 offers Sells in just 17 days Home...

How Homeownership Can Help Shield You from Inflation If you’re following along with the news today, you’ve likely heard about rising inflation. You’re also likely feeling the impact in your day-to-day life as prices go up for gas, groceries, and more. These rising consumer costs can put a pinch on your wallet and make you re-evaluate any big purchases you have planned to ensure they’re still worthwhile. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a home this year, you’re probably wondering if you should continue down that path or if it makes more sense to wait. While the answer depends on your situation, here’s how homeownership can help you combat the rising costs that come with inflation. Homeownership Offers Stability and Security Investopedia explains that during a period of high infl...

The Dream of Homeownership Is Worth the Effort If you’re in the market to buy a home this season, stick with it. Homebuyers face challenges in any market, and today’s is no exception. But if you persevere, your decision to purchase a home will be worth the effort in the end. In fact, a recent survey from Bankrate shows homeownership is so powerful that: “Nearly three in four homeowners say they would still buy their current home if they had it to do [sic] all over again.” That means the results – owning a home and the benefits that come with it – outweigh the effort needed to achieve their goal. If you’re a homebuyer, let that provide you with the confidence to know the work you’re putting in today will pay off for years to come. Here are a few reasons to stick with your search and foc...

What You Need To Know About Selling in a Sellers’ Market Even if you haven’t been following real estate news, you’ve likely heard about the current sellers’ market. That’s because there’s a lot of talk about how strong market conditions are for people who want to sell their houses. But if you’re thinking about listing your house, you probably want to know: what does being in a sellers’ market really mean? What Is a Sellers’ Market? The latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows housing supply is still very low. There’s a 2-month supply of homes at the current sales pace. Historically, a 6-month supply is necessary for a normal or neutral market where there are enough homes available for active buyers. That puts today deep in sellers’ market ...

We have all encountered a home with failed seals in the windows. How bad the window looks varies, but if we are about to list it, we know it will be better if those seals were not failed and the window foggy. Even in this market, the buyer is likely to comment or request the window be replaced. However, in our market there is another option.I recently got an email, well several emails from Derek Posch of DPGWindows explaining that his company repairs windows that might be an issue in a home inspection. Note, the difference here, the window can be repaired, at a fraction of the cost of a replacement. Well, my fiancée actually has several windows that have failed seals, and as we will be selling the home shortly, we thought we would see how well Derek's promise would hold up. See for your...

What does Active rain mean to me that is the Question!  How can I answer that as it is part of my daily life?. There were days that I felt as if Active Rain was the Real Estate Company I worked for because I learned more when I log into this platform than going to a Real Estate Office. The agents and people here taught me so much. How to Blog and get to the people I wanted to reach on the internet. The long tail and short tail and just how to use them in a post. I went to Rain Camps and met fascinating people that knew me and I knew from blogging. We learned even more technology and even more importantly made friends with the same interests. I met Ed Silva, Bob Stewart , Ben Kinney and Patricia Kennedy with her side kick Cindy Jones plus Brad Andersohn what a knowledgeable group  Years ...

People think in different ways. Some think small and some think big!Some people come from a mindset of scarcity and therefore think small, unwilling to take any risks and hence unable to receive any reward.Then there are those who know there is no scarcity, are always willing to share, and give. They think big, they take chances, and they often get a big payout, what the small thinkers then label as lucky.Last week I had a phone call from a small thinker. I had been discussing with them about listing their mother's home. The son gave many reasons why they couldn't list yet. He was going through photos and it was very emotional and taking time. Initially they had said the home would be cleared and ready to list by the previous weekend. In a conversation that week, the son mentioned how h...

I am sure everyone heard of Philadelphia's mask mandate. The stores all had signs that said mask must be worn. To be honest half the people did not wear them. The other half  kind of wore them others proudly wore their masks. Let me tell you it was so confusing, especially where I live on the boarder of Philly and Bucks County . You can go to one store and be in Philadelphia and go a few miles and be in Bensalem  no masks are required with a sigh of relief.Thankfully the mask mandate is lifted. It was all so confusing. My one friend said they should call the police if they do not have a mask on. Right the police will come and arrest them for not wearing a mask. Like they have nothing better to do forget about it is over. I do not argue with her. The Mask mandate is lifted.Let's talk abo...

Let's look for some Steals and Deals this week. I love talking to my lady friends and retired male friends as most of them know where to shop for the best deals. That is where I found the Grocery Outlet just by speaking with friends .Well to change the subject just a little last week if you remember I talked about how happy I was with the HP laser all in one printer I purchased from Amazon well it stopped working in three days. My friend stopped over who helped me set it up . We called HP support nothing worked. Amazon is sending a printer replacement I   returned  this one to the UPS Store.

An Expert Advisor Will Give You the Best Advice in Today’s Market Having an experienced guide coaching you through the process of buying or selling a home is important in a normal market – but today’s market is far from normal. As a result, an expert real estate advisor isn’t just good to have by your side, they’re essential. Today’s housing market is full of extremes. Experts project mortgage rates will continue to rise this year, and that’s driving significant demand for homes as buyers want to make their purchases before rates climb even higher. At the same time, an absence of sellers is leading to record-low housing inventory. This imbalance in supply and demand is creating bidding wars and driving home price appreciation as well as considerable gains in home equity. These market c...

Are You Wondering if This Is the Year To Buy a Home? Every year, many renters ask themselves the same question: Should I continue renting, or is it time to buy a home? If you’re a renter, chances are you’ve asked yourself that question at least once, and it’s likely because you’ve faced an increase in your monthly housing costs over time. After all, according to Census data, rents have risen consistently for decades. To make an informed and powerful decision, the first step is understanding what’s happening in today’s housing market so you can determine which option is the better long-term financial decision for you. Rents Are Going Up Again This Year Rents are skyrocketing right now. Data from realtor.com shows just how much rental prices are surging throughout the country. The graph ...
