The Philadelphia real estate market is now showing activity. Homebuyers and sellers are eager to take advantage of rare opportunities this landscape has to offer. This Summer is soaring as if it were a Spring market. Strong buyer demands in price and housing attributes are putting sellers in unique negotiating positions. The homes that sell now are the trendsetters of our current society. Many are choosing a more economic lifestyle from home. Traditional commutes are at a standstill and less are going to co-working spaces that have sprung up in the city for the past several years. Now city dwellers are nestling into their kitchen or home office to work and enjoy quiet time. Family and work life are blending like never before.

Quiet nights with takeout and a new release movie on demand are a part of our typical days. With such a shift in the purpose of a home, the real estate process is all the more different. Trending home features now include a room for an office, private outdoor space, large first floor and a quiet city neighborhood away from the crowds. 

 

The work from home transition may become a more permanent situation. Homeowners want their property to be interchangeable from holding a Zoom conference call to hosting fun nights with the family. While being at home is pleasant, it is still essential to step outside for breaks. Many Philly neighborhoods like Graduate Hospital, Fairmont, Fitler Square, Rittenhouse Square and more have homes situated on peaceful streets where the only sound is a bird chirping.

 

The city has its hustle and bustle and its quaint and subdued residences. Now, the choice is yours. As a seller, you can choose to update your house to suit today’s buyer. As a buyer, you have the option to live to the tune of today’s world. 

 

As I work with clients, we choose to communicate using technology. Video calls help us make a human connection, while texts and emails are great for on the go check-ins. Virtual systems include touring properties through video and pictures along with checking out the data of home market values. Either way, I assure you the job will get done and you will be happy to work with me as your Realtor and advocate.
