As we head into the holiday weekend, the National Association of REALTORS has released the numbers for pending home sales in the month of May. Once again and for the fourth consecutive month the number of pending home sales has risen. The last time there were four consecutive monthly gains was in October of 2004.
In an earlier post this year I talked about how my company seemed to reflect the numbers provided by the National Association Of REALTORS for pending home sales. Looking at my company’s production since then I continue to see a steady rise in pending home sales. The Buyers continue to take advantage of the first time home buyer tax credit and favorable housing affordability. For further information on Buying and Selling please visit our web site at www.elfantwissahickon.com.
Please have a safe and happy 4th of July!

This information will most likely be valuable to all consumers: Buyers, factoring the cost of replacing appliances, windows, etc., into their offer to purchase a home; Sellers, contemplating upgrades or necessary replacements and their values in their home before they list it for sale; any homeowner trying to make their money stretch as far as possible while maintaining their home and comfort level.
The information provided is very interesting, especially in comparing the useful life expectancy of similar components:
Additionally useful are the estimates of when items will need to be replaced:
