It is the question the agents of Coldwell Banker Hearthside, Realtors hear more than any other.
Of course we're thrilled when someone asks, because that means they understand that buying and selling houses is about data, not just emotion or luck. We just need to make sure we have an answer.
The market differs from area to area - some places are more prone to economics, are more apt to have a certain type of housing, are closer to jobs/roads/shops that cause them to be more valuable and move more quickly.
In essence, the answer to "How's the market" is "What market are you in?"
That is why we have created more than 400 area-specific pages on our web site that provide a snapshot of the market. Through a data-gathering relationship we have developed with Altos Research we can now provide real-time market snapshots for all the areas we serve throughout the Delaware and Lehigh Valleys.
Click here to find market information on a specific zip code, or in towns that have more than one zip to find a compounded snapshot of the area as a whole. While this is not direct MLS data, we feel it is a good starting point for you to understand the direction markets in your area are moving.
This data changes weekly, so bookmark the page and return as often as you like. Should you wish to have the data emailed to you fill out the subscription form on the right side of any statistics page.
