This quiet neighborhood in the northwest corridor of Philadelphia offers tree lined streets and plenty of space to enjoy nature such as the Wissahickon Valley Park or the Awbury Arboretum, but also includes tremendously easy access to SEPTA’s regional rail lines, ensuring any trip neighborhood residents want to make into Center City will be a breeze.

We love this time of year...Philly Beer Week, and this year we are especially excited! This time around we are not only focused on the brews but the special connection we have to one local brewery in the works for Wayne Junction, more specifically, 137 Berkley Street.


Real Estate & Beer, you may be asking yourself, what do they have in common? Well for the owners of the Attic Brewing Company, Todd & Laura Lacy, we were able to work with them to find their home just around the corner from the location for their brewery! Wayne Junction is on the verge of a major redevelopment and after sitting down and speaking with the Lacy’s we’ve found that they could not be more thrilled and honored to be a part of this change.

The first quarter of 2018 equaled the opening quarter of 2017 showing that there are still buyers eager to purchase their first, or next home! Interest rates are hovering around 4% and while the number of homes sold was ↓ 3%, the median sales price for these homes ↑ 7%.

Data also shows us that there is an overall low number of homes on the market, this tells us that we are still leaning towards a seller's market. This meaning that homes in good repair and priced appropriately are anticipated to sell quickly. Although in the midst of a seller's market, homeowners cannot price their homes too aggressively. We witnessed in December the average number of appointments for a listing before it went pending was 6. Since that time, this has gone up to 10
