I am looking for a large two-story twin home in either Krewstown or Sun Valley under $200,000. Is there anything on the market that you know of that my agent can’t help me find? She says there is none.
Out of the 12 homes currently listed for sale between Sun Valley and Krewstown, there is just one two-story twin listed for sale and it is out of your price range by $19,900. I know it sounds hard to believe, but these two neighborhoods have a wide variety of homes for sale, from condos to one-story twins to single homes — except for two-story twins under $200,000 at this time.
Based on my information, unless you increase your price range, you will have a hard time finding the home to which you’ve narrowed your search. In the last six months, the lowest a two-story twin sold for in Krewstown or Sun Valley was $211,000.
My suggestion would be to broaden your search to include nearby neighborhoods in the 19115 zip code that may have what you desire for under $200,000. Or include one-story twins, because there are a few for sale for under $200,000 in your preferred locations.
The information I access is not exclusive to me. If your agent is a licensed PA Realtor then she will likely access the same information I can find in TREND, the Multiple Listing Service. TREND members are licensed real estate professionals, members of their local Association of Realtors and associated with real estate offices that belong to TREND.
