Real Estate News

April is one of my favorite times of year. I love the weather. I love the activity around Deercreek. Also, it’s Billy’s birthday and I am always up for a celebration. April brings the Men’s Member-Guest Golf Tournament, which is a great time to showcase the neighborhood. April is also when the Deercreek Women’s Alliance is hosting their community garage sale, making it a great time to clean out those closets and garages. This time of year also brings lots of activity related to real estate.

In Deercreek, 15 homes are for sale (according to the 3/1/17 NEFMLS). Priced from $364,900 to $675,000, they range in size from 2218 to 4711 sq ft. The list price averages $148.16 per sq ft; yet, ranges from a low of $130.01 to a high of $180.30.

Six homes are currently under contract. They are listed from $359,000-$525,000, and ranging in size from 2023 to 3563 sq ft. Six homes sold and closed in the last 3 months ending 3/1/17. Selling for $335,000 to $545,000, the homes ranged in size from 2237 to 3743 sq ft. On the market an average of 80 days, the homes sold from $140.85 to $155.89 per sq ft, and averaged $146.68 per sq ft, up from $142.27.

Sales remain steady in Deercreek. A couple of homes have stayed on the market for an extended period of time, yet, if a home is priced right, maintained properly, and staged and marketed with a professional look, the home should sell quickly at the right amount. Just as April brings lots of activity to Deercreek real estate, it also brings lots of activity to Deercreek residents. Time to go and enjoy the weather; enjoy the festivities surrounding the golfers and the DWA; and most of all, celebrate the birthday of someone special!
