Big Price Increases Driven by Low Housing Inventory

The local housing market has been brisk, with homes selling quickly and for high prices. Low inventory and strong demand have been fueling the price rise. Here are average sale prices for three local counties, showing the increase in prices from May 2020 to May 2021.

Montgomery County   +14.79%

May 2020:    $375,702
May 2021:    $431,266

Bucks County    +12.56%

May 2020:    $397,167

Updated homes continue to see the strongest demand, with many attracting multiple offers. Even dated homes often are not on the market long, if their price reflects the work needed.
