It's time for a new Delaware and Pennsylvania real estate market update! As you know, the market is always changing, especially with the seasons, but buyer demand is still high in Delaware and Pennsylvania since buyers now shop year-round for properties on their smartphones, tablets, even set up email alerts with new listings! 

Inventory is hovering around the same mark, if not slightly under, as compared to this time last year. But remember, this is always changing! If you have questions about the market where you live, it is always best to contact your agent for an up-to-date look at the market.

From April to June 2019, 2,007 homes were sold with a median sold value of $239,000. The number of units listed during this timeframe was 2,714 homes— so as you can see, buyers are still very much browsing inventory and not waiting long to jump on the home that best meets their needs!

April: 64

May: 54

June: 47

The summer months are typically a popular time for buyers to look to purchase a new home and move, so you'll notice as the summer progresses, the days on market (DOM) drops.

New Wilmington DE Real Estate Market Stats - December 2015

by Katina Geralis

2016 is already being heralded as a breakout year for homebuyers in New Castle County. Whether or not it's your first time buying a home, current real estate market conditions—like low mortgage rates and increasingly high rents—are contributing to this year being an optimal time to make that move and become a homeowner in the Wilmington area

It's also shaping up to be an excellent year for current homeowners! In fact, the lower number of homes currently for sale will give new Wilmington DE home sellers the chance to give their property more attention in a market with high demand. 

Of course, market conditions will vary by location, but according to the latest real estate market statistics, here's what we have been seeing in New Castle County:

December saw an increase in both the median sales price, coming in at $215,000 and a 7.5% change over December 2014, and average sales price, coming in at $234,000 and a change of 1.3% from the previous year. The number of closed sales also rose to 441, up 5.3% from the year prior. 

However, as mentioned above, buyers in the market will be met with fewer choices as inventory trends lower. There were 2,142 active single-family homes for sale in December in New Castle County, a volume nearly 5 percent lower than the year prior. 

If you're wondering about the first steps to take toward buying a home or would simply like more information about available properties in the Wilmington or Newark area, do not hesitate to reach out to us! The KG Home Team has been voted a 5 Star Real Estate Agent year after year and we are here to help make the process as easy as possible!

New Wilmington DE Real Estate Market Stats - Q3

by Katina Geralis

Buying a home now offers many opportunities to Wilmington area homebuyers, especially given that mortgage rates still reside at historically low levels! And while the real estate market continues to evolve in New Castle County, here's what has been happening over the past quarter.

The third quarter saw an increase in median sales prices, rising to $247,408— up over 3 percent from last year. The number of closed sales on Wilmington DE area homes also continues to rise—a total of 1,770 homes closed in this quarter—up nearly 19 percent from this time one year ago.

And while these factors all point to a returning, healthier real estate market, buyers in the Greater Wilmington area will still be met with low inventory as they conduct their home search. The number of homes for sale saw a decline of around 9 percent, to 2,602 homes. Inventory also remains around a 5 months supply, down 22 percent from this time last year.

There are still numerous benefits to be rewarded from buying a home during this time of year, so do not hesitate to contact the Kat Geralis Home Team! As a top-ranked team in Wilmington, DE, we can answer any questions you have about the real estate market, buying or selling a home
