The first two months of 2014 have been absolutely crazy in the Bucks County real estate market. With a snow storm every other week and this thing called the 'Polar Vortex', it hasn't been easy getting buyers out to see properties. Nevertheless, we still need to push forward as real estate agents. So, for today, I am showcasing the February 2014 Housing Market Report for Newtown, PA. Check out the stats for the $150,000 to $750,000 range for residential homes. I focus only on residential property because that is my main source of business.

As a real estate agent in the Bucks County area, I come across many mistakes that sellers make when trying to sell their home. It often comes down to the client not being willing to see their home as a potential buyer sees it. This could include anything from inflating their home's value to believing they do not need to remove family photos from the walls (hint: you want buyers to see themselves in the home, not you). I do understand where sellers are coming from, though. They love their home and it's difficult to see it as an asset to be sold rather than the place they shared so many memories. I get it. But, that's why it becomes so much more important to listen to your agent, who is an objective party and has no emotional attachment to your home. By avoiding the mistakes listed below,...

Homes Sold in Newtown Borough, PA in 2013 Homes For Sale in Newtown Borough PA There were 38 home sales in Newtown Borough during 2013 and overall it was the best year in Real Estate since 2006. As we enter the first week of January the predictions for 2014 call for another solid year. The hardest part will be keeping up with demand which is often the problem in our much sort after Newtopia. The biggest issue we see for this year is the rise in interest rates (a given). Most industry experts are calling for interest rates to edge closer to 6% as the year progresses. We are encouraging anyone thinking about selling in 2014 to consult with us soon – the buyers will be trying to beat the upward trend in rates in order to get more house for their dollar. Obviously, the higher the interest r...
