In January 2019, 38 homes sold in Roxborough and Manayunk. The same number of homes sold in January of 2018. We should expect to see a similar number of homes sold in February. In March, we can expect to see the number of homes sold double which makes February a very good month to put a home on the market since sold homes are an indication of buyer activity within the month or two before those sales are completed.
Home Values Are Up
The median sales price of re-sale homes sold in January 2019 is $238,250 compared to a median sales price of $225,000 in January of 2018, a 6% increase over the same time last year. The number of active listings decreased significantly from 251 active listings in January 2018 to 143 active listings in January 2019. These are indications that we can expect to be in a seller’s market over the next several months if things continue on the same path. Last Spring we saw a moderate seller’s market and the indications are that this coming Spring will be a strong seller’s market.
What to Expect
During a seller’s market we can expect to see home values increase with the increased demand from home buyers. But, it’s still important for sellers to price their homes close to the real market value so they won’t be overlooked by potential buyers. Buyers will need to act quickly when they find a home they’re interested in and should expect other buyers to be interested in those same homes, as well. For buyers thinking of buying in the next several months, now is the time to make sure that you have everything you need in place to be ready to make offers quickly.

The Philadelphia area is a great place to live and work and I love sharing all that Philadelphia has to offer. From our unique neighborhoods and towns, great parks, amazing restaurants and nightlife, museums, and events there’s no shortage of things to do and see in, and near, Philadelphia. Since 2010, I’ve been helping people buy and sell their homes in the Philadelphia area specializing in Center City, Northwest Philadelphia, and the Montgomery County suburbs bordering the city. Outside of being a Realtor®, I’m a dad to an amazing little girl, husband to an amazing wife, and dog-dad to Frida. Together, we enjoy taking advantage of everything that Philadelphia has to offer and exploring the many parks, festivals, and events in the city. Since 2017, I’ve been supporting KenCrest through volunteer efforts including organizing cleaning and painting days at their community homes, decorating for the holidays at children’s transitional homes, and coordinating fundraising and toy drives to support their efforts.
