 Oh yeah...the market is slowing down.


It does every year in late fall. Though I think it's still a better time to sell than say mid Summer.


Our fall condo market replicates the spring market that proceeds it, but at about 75% the pace. 


Once we hit late fall, then it drops to about 50%.


I usually find this pattern will hold until early early Spring hits...which is about the time when it turns into a blood bath of frenzied buyers and happy sellers. 


Inventory remains low in Center City and I don't see that changing anytime soon.....

The One Condo Question That Always Gets A Negative Answer?
I get this all the time...

Is AirBnB allowed 
in this building?

No. Never. Ever.
Almost every building in town will have a clause embedded into it's declaration (under rules and regulations) that the minimum lease period is either SIX or TWELVE months.

Saturday AM is my favorite time of the entire work week.

All buyers, no office work and a full day of looking at some
really cool condos around town.
It just never gets tiring....Even after 29 years.

The best time to get me is in the AM 
when I'm hopped up on four
cups of Maxwell House.
