|CONNECTIONS| Chairman’s Welcome Dear Members and Friends, For so many of us, 2021 is a welcomed change from the overwhelming halt to our lifestyles that the pandemic has caused, and this new year is a representation of hope with brighter days to come. We have all been impacted in one way or another, and if you are anything like me, I feel like I’ve been lured into a virtual vortex. It is time to regain control of our businesses and the way we interact with one another! I’m so thankful for our Chamber and the amazing leadership that Cheryl Kuhn, the Chamber President & CEO, has demonstrated throughout these challenging times. Cheryl and Ashley Miscevich, the Member Services Manager, have spent tireless hours to bring relevant information to our Chamber members, but also to non-Chamber members. This Chamber is truly committed to community and what better way to demonstrate that than during times when our business community needs it most. The Chamber was even able to safely hold in-person events. Thank you so much Cheryl and Ashley!

As the Board Chairperson this year, I look forward to bringing some new initiatives to the Chamber, the details of which are being fine-tuned. As with any Betsy Niedziejko organization, we welcome feedback and strive to bring services and programs that meet our members’ needs. As such, several focus group sessions were held and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. Members are definitely looking forward to getting back to in-person networking and social events. Please keep the Chamber in mind as we all look to Re-Connect, Re-Engage and ReSume our business connections in 2021! Sincerely, Betsy Niedziejko SCCCC Chairman of the Board (WSFS Bank)

|CONNECTIONS| A Message from the President Dear Members and Friends, I was recently reminded of a quote from Booker T. Washington, an American educator, author, orator, and adviser to multiple presidents of the United States: “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” This quote rings as true today as it did in 1901. One definition of success that continues to resonate is about people stepping up in support of others. I am humbled by so many who did not hesitate to ‘lean in’ for others in need. In my eyes you are true heroes of our time, and on behalf of the Chamber Board and Staff, we thank you. Washington’s quote also speaks to the countless strong leaders across our region (and beyond) who are top of mind as we steer our way through this devastating pandemic. These leaders never lost their foothold, working harder than ever to support their businesses and organizations and do their very best for their employees, families, vendors and partners, friends, and yes, strangers. Now, as the Chamber looks forward, we realize how much was learned in 2020, spinning and adjusting into, in many ways, a much stronger organization – as a visionary leader, regional resource, and powerful supporter. As always, we look forward to holding inperson and virtual programs as we prepare for the Chamber’s signature events including our Annual Chairman’s Gala where we will recognize and thank Jim Turner, the 2020 Chairman of the Board. We are where we are today because of Jim’s daily leadership and support. Importantly, we will recognize the Outstanding Citizen of the Year. The reigning Outstanding Citizen, Pastor Annalie Korengel, will

present the award to this year’s recipient. A special thank you to the Board of Directors and Standing Committee members, as well as Cheryl B. Kuhn every Chamber member, sponsor, partner, and supporter who allowed us to further our mission in a year that was unlike any other. I look forward to connecting with you in person in 2021! Thank you. Best regards, Cheryl B. Kuhn, IOM President & CEO

Real estate matters to everyone ‘This is a valuable opportunity to understand what’s happening to our region,’ chamber CEO Cheryl Kuhn says By Ken Mammarella Contributing writer This, the first themed issue of Southern Chester County CONNECTIONS is also a first look at the real estate sector of the 18 municipalities and three school districts served by our organization, said Cheryl Kuhn, the Chamber’s CEO. “There’s never been anything like this produced for our region – with numbers, real time updates and market summaries from real estate experts.” This assessment followed what can only be referred to as an upheaval caused by the pandemic and its ensuing restrictions. “This is a unique opportunity to share information,” she said. “It’s important for the business community and relevant for everyone [even consumers not in the market] to know what happened, where we stand, and what to expect.” “The pandemic affected every sector of the real estate industry, and, residential real estate remained resilient,” she said. “Thanks to the Federal Reserve’s slashing of interest rates in the face of extraordinary economic disruption, mortgage rates were at all-time lows in 2020 – and homebuyers took advantage of it.” The pandemic led the Chamber to grow beyond

networking for its hundreds of members. “We’ve evolved into an organization known for its knowledge, expertise, resources, and most notably for our sense of caring,” she said. After the virus hit, “we fielded hundreds of questions, provided leadership and support to businesses and individuals, held informative town halls and webinars, and offered viable options for every challenge that faced our communities.” The Chamber collaborated with government agencies, businesses and other nonprofits. “We worked to bring opportunities to our region and beyond,” she said. “We continue to lead, and will do so until we are certain every nonprofit, every business, and every individual, receives the support and resources they need.” One example was Support Local, Love Local, a social media campaign that ran for six weeks before the holidays in support of restaurants and merchants - whether or not they were members of the Chamber. The campaign highlighted menus, deals of the day, and special offers for 30+ local businesses. Another was the Community Caravan, which sent carloads of people in 28 vehicles on June 19 to help revive Oxford. Kuhn explained: “We ate and drank, and mingled with merchants and residents, in support of this beautiful downtown.”

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Chamber played a crucial role in keeping businesses working, connected, and informed – while supporting a myriad of efforts to keep our economy open for business. Along these lines, we invited our leadership to share some of what they’re doing to support rebuilding our region and beyond.

“How can your business support the Chamber’s efforts in rebuilding the Southern Chester County community?”

Betsy Niedziejko SCCCC Chairman of the Board WSFS Bank During these trying times, you certainly come to appreciate all the little things you have in life. At this time in my career, I’m so very proud to be a representative of WSFS Bank ~ We Stand For Service. Through round 1 of the Paycheck Protection Program, WSFS Bank helped more than 5,000 Customers obtain nearly $1 billion in PPP funding, protecting nearly 100,000 jobs in our market. Through the WSFS Bank Foundation, over $300,000 was contributed to local non-profits with a focus on health and human service programs, education, economic and business growth, and art education. As a Business Banker, I’m thankful that WSFS Bank is so committed to a community banking style whereby lenders are encouraged to understand what drives a business including company management, strategic plans and how a company overcomes its obstacles. Obviously, the numbers can’t be overlooked, but taking a deeper dive brings those numbers to life. Our Bank values its membership in this Chamber, and like the Chamber, I consider myself a resource through the network I’ve built and the trusted relationships that have been formed over time.

Lincoln’s distinctive history is married to the responsibility of serving our neighbors in the business community in ways that only we can. With that in mind, Lincoln seeks to support the Southern Chester County community’s rebuilding in a few different ways. Lincoln’s faculty is committed to working alongside the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce to meet the capacity-building and professional development needs of local entrepreneurs and business leaders. Lincoln’s Experiential Learning unit is eager to partner with local businesses to add qualified candidates to the local job market. Also, Lincoln University has several options for socially-distant meeting spaces when the need to meet in-person arises. Lincoln is also open to discovering more specific ways to collaborate with the Chamber and local business leaders to help our community restore its economic vibrancy.

Eric Kuhn SCCCC Board Member Pillar Real Estate Advisors While the spectrum of impact 2020 played on the Southern Chester County PA business community varies greatly from industry to industry, variables of, “essential business” designation, operational capacity restrictions, etc... have left many business owners needing to redefine and restructure their core operational processes. Importantly, a company’s commercial real estate position is an essential consideration when rebuilding and evaluating a “path forward”. As a proud member of the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce, and as a member of the Chamber’s leadership team, Eric Kuhn and Pillar Real Estate Advisors will work alongside business and commercial property owners to help them develop a strategy that achieves their 2021 goals from a commercial real estate perspective. Regardless of your commercial real estate needs, we can help you structure an approach that puts you in a position to flourish in 2021 and beyond. Lisa A. Long, CPA SCCCC Board Member Nawn & Company, CPAs, Ltd. A Chamber is the backbone of the business community. Our Chamber does a fantastic job in uniting businesses to solve problems. “Uniting” takes participation and that is where members come in. Active participation and involvement from the membership allows us to accomplish more of our goals, such as guiding our local and state legislators in addressing the needs of the business community and assisting our businesses to survive in these unprecedented times. Involvement also creates camaraderie amongst business owners which generates referrals and increases in business. Basically, involvement is a win-win for both the Chamber and its members. It will help the community and it will support your business.

supporting and promoting the Chamber efforts to rally support across our community, all those small purchases add up and can significantly help those hurt the most. Additionally, whenever the Chamber provides an opportunity to co-sign a letter in reasonable support of our shut down businesses, we all can make an impact by providing that signature. Alixandra Porrini SCCCC Board Member S&T Bank S&T Bank can be a great resource to help rebuild the South Chester County community for various reasons. We would absolutely love the opportunity to help the community grow by reviewing appropriate bank products that may meet their needs, as well as introduce them to various resources and partners to help them with business plans, development opportunities and partnerships. Lastly, S&T Bank will continue to be open to sponsorship opportunities for various networking events that help highlight business within our community. Yolande Raath SCCCC Board Member DataConnectX One of the core values of the Chamber comes to mind: Connect. As a Chamber board member and business owner, I support the rebuilding efforts by connecting people to people, and people to solutions. Our Chamber provides abundant networking opportunities for businesses in our community. I support these initiatives by participating in various Chamber events, encouraging others to participate, and by being intentional to connect people with one another. In 2021, as businesses continue to look for ways to reinvent and rebuild, it might be that one connection they need to make, or that one person they need to meet that can make the difference for their business! Furthermore, DataConnectX connects people to solutions by taking care of the “tech stuff” that often stands between an idea and a working solution. For one business, the next step this year might be to get all those disjointed piles of information organized in a digital collaboration space. For another, growth might mean to implement CRM software to keep track of leads, customers, and open projects. And for another, to have sales data analyzed in order to recognize trends and make strategic data driven decisions. By providing tech expertise, I am able to support the Chamber and businesses in a practical way. Continued on Page 18

He became a board member for Historic Kennett Square, and still serves as the head of its Economic Council. “I thought, now that I have far more free time on my hands -- and there are only so many non profits I can be involved with -- what would truly engage me?” Norris said. “I have always enjoyed home ownership and the real estate industry, so the idea to buy, renovate and rent homes in the community seemed like a strong possibility. “I quickly found out that it was not only a new career, but a great way to reinvest in a community.” Over the past seven years, Next Homes, LP has on average purchased and renovated about a half dozen properties a year throughout Kennett Borough, Kennett Township, Unionville and Chadds Ford. To Norris, the

intention for every project he chooses is “to buy these old, beat up properties that are at the time more of an eyesore than a benefit to the community, and renovate them to current standards while also keeping their historic nature where I am able to,” he said. ‘Can I add value to this project?’ Whether a property joins the roster of projects that Next Home, LP engages in depends on it registering on Norris’ personal checklist. “The first question I ask is, ‘Can I add value to this project?’” he said. “The second question has to do with establishing a possible financial benchmark. ‘Does it make sense for me to buy it, renovate it and rent it out and have it cover my investment?’ One of the more crucial aspects it needs to have is whether it will be able to fit or be able to be adapted to fit in the neighborhood it is in.” This working philosophy has also been extended to commercial projects.

together, we have been able to transform them into something that is not only useful, but unique and attractive.” Whenever Norris considers a new project for restoration, he will reach out to Rosencrans and Harlan and ask them to conduct a walking tour of ideas on the property. Before work began on the Westminster House, for example, the three discussed possible options for its renovation. Norris introduced the possibility of the structure being divided into separate living units, but Rosencrans and Harlan saw another possibility. “I told Bob that this would truly be a nightmare to break this up into different apartments, but after you chop off the ugliness, you’re left with a very comfortably-sized home,” Rosencrans said. “During that meeting, all of us came to the consensus at the same time that it made most sense that this should be a single-family home.” In recent years, the borough of Kennett Square has become the welcome recipient of its growing popularity, as indicated by the number of lease and rental complexes that surround nearby social and business attractions. Through its residential and business projects, Next Home,

Norris said he has been lucky to work alongside architect John Rosencrans of Renewal Dynamics and contractor Brian Harlan of Distinctive Homes, as well as a talented group of tradesmen and carpenters. “Bob knows that I am drawn to the unique and odd projects that help benefit the community and contribute to the aesthetic value of a town,” Rosencrans said. “He does go after some challenging structures, and working

LP has responded to that popularity by reinvesting in the community, which in turn leads to greater investment in the local economy, in local schools and in the work force. “There has been a major trend in the real estate industry that is seeing more and more people looking at rental properties as a better financial decision than owning a house,” Norris said. “The entire country is getting more into the leasing and rental situation, and while I continue to believe in the benefits of home ownership, there is the rationale that by renting properties, it eliminates being tied down to a mortgage or maintaining an investment in something that may or may not depreciate over time.” ‘The vision of the people I work with’ On a recent winter morning, the sun burst through the large circular window at the front of the Westminster House, where Norris, Rosencrans, Harlan and a team of carpenters and tradesmen now work to convert the structure into a single-family home. What were once sketches and concepts are now near completions: In the space

where congregations once sat, the foundation for what will be a large great room is forming, and the altar area will soon become a modern kitchen. “To be able to go into a 100-year-old property and think ‘we can put an addition over there,’ or ‘we could put a wall over there’ is challenging,” Norris said. “Until you start opening the walls of a century-old house, you don’t have any clue as to what’s there. But it’s going in with a vision of the people I work with, who say ‘it’s not going to be easy but we can do that.’” “I am glad that there is someone with the foresight and the willingness to repurpose this historic building was willing to invest in it,” Rosencrans said of Norris about the Westminster House project. “We could have lost an incredible resource in our borough if it were to have gotten into the hands of someone whose mindset was, ‘Let’s just tear this old church down and build something new.’ “Bob Norris continually finds a way to save these structures.” To contact Staff Writer Richard L.

Looking back at 2020, how would you sum up the housing market? 2020: Good times and hard times By Ken Mammarella Contributing Writer

Jennifer D’Amico

Southern Chester County’s real estate industry started and ended 2020 well, said Jennifer D’Amico, associate broker and vice president of sales for Beiler-Campbell Realtors in Kennett Square. The middle was very hard, because of the virus and all the ensuing restrictions. “It was unprecedented for a lot of reasons,” she said. “First, we were deemed non-essential in our busiest season – the spring market. We were writing policies for brokers for government guidelines that seemed to change by the hour. We were selling houses, sight-unseen.”

D’Amico, a Kennett Square resident who’s been in the business for 26 years, also observed that “when we came back, there was so much pent-up demand that the market just exploded.” The hot market included houses that generated multiple offers, she said, which was a challenging situation for house-hunters. Average sale prices are on the rise for the year. Not only were there lots of buyers, but there was not much inventory in the county, an increasingly popular draw for people “leaving cities for beautiful Chester County because they were working at home.” Of course, the convenient location also allows for people to live in Chester County – enjoying its beauty and its great school districts – and work in Wilmington, Philadelphia or Baltimore. “It’s been a fantastic year for the real estate industry,” D’Amico concluded.

With regard to inventory, how many homes are currently available for sale in Chester County? How many cities/neighborhoods does this equate to, and how does this number compare to the same time one year ago? Explain. Not much to sell, and a lot of interest By Ken Mammarella Contributing Writer

“We have low inventory. No doubt about it,” Al George, a Realtor with RE/MAX Town & Country in Chadds Ford, said about the number of homes for sale in Chester County.

he expects to stay low all year. Realtors are making it easier to buy and sell homes in a socially distanced way. George is often doubling the number of photos uploaded to a listing, to about 35 to 50 photos, and 40 percent of his listings have video tours. “GenX’ers and millennials are driving the market,” he said. “They’re marrying, having kids and looking for land to play. A lot are working from home, and they expect that to continue.” That last element is why houses with some quiet space that can be used as an office are particularly attractive. In other houses, “buyers are converting a bedroom into an office until they can renovate,” he said.

On the day of a recent interview, there were 582 homes for sale in the county’s 73 municipalities. That compares to 663 at the same time two years ago and 885 three years ago, said George, a Chadds Ford resident with 30 years of experience in the industry. The current number is just a one-month supply at the traditional sales rate. That compares to the three-month supply in a normal market, he said, and 3.3 months nationally now. One reason the number is low is because construction isn’t keeping up with demand in the county. Chester County is so desirable because it’s close enough to urban amenities, yet offers country charm. Demand is strong from buyers tempted by low interest rates, which

current recovery process affected the first-time home buyer market? How does this compare to the same time last year? First-time buyers dealing with challenging times, situations By Natalie Smith Contributing Writer

Sandra Massari

When maneuvering the first time through the sometimes-overwhelming landscape of home buying, it really helps to know that somebody has your back -- especially if that somebody really knows the Southern Chester County area and beyond. Sandra Massari, an associate with RE/MAX Excellence in Kennett Square, has for six years been helping people make that move into their first home. Connections asked her: How have the pandemic and current recovery affected the first-time homebuyers’ market? How does this compare to the same time last year?

Sandra Massari: I really enjoy working with the first-time homebuyers. And they range in all ages. Recently I had first-time homebuyers who were in their 60s. I’ve also had clients who haven’t bought a home in 40 years and it’s like they’re first-time homebuyers all over again. But now it really depends on their jobs. A lot of restaurant workers or people who had to physically shut [their business] down and had saved to purchase a house don’t have those funds any longer because they needed it for their rent or just to survive. There’s not a whole lot of inventory, especially for the younger first-time homebuyers who haven’t been out in the workforce for a long time and able to save up a lot of money. Those homes that are in their range, around $100,000 to $300,000, get snatched up so fast. Those properties are very rare to come by; when they do, they’re gone. I tell them to hang tight, more are coming than we’ve been seeing. But first-time homebuyers do have an advantage over someone who already owns a home and is planning to use the funds from the sale of their house to purchase their next home. The first-time buyers have kind of a clean slate on the purchase. Connections: What are the first-time homebuyers looking for?

Sandra Massari: Buyers who are renting or have a house are looking for more space. They are finding that being home and crowded with kids and [spouses] … your significant other could be taking up your office. People are also looking for gym workout areas. And If you’re trying to create a home office or home gym, you can go to [an online marketplace] and pick up inexpensive used equipment or furniture. If their credit is kind of tight, I highly suggest that my clients not purchase anything new for their home [before the sale is completed]. It hasn’t happened to my clients, but I’ve heard horror stories of clients with tight credit going out and buying a couch or a lawnmower without asking their lender. Then they end up losing the house over a couch. So, I always advise my clients, until you have the keys in your hand, don’t buy anything. I just love working with these first-time homebuyers and just watching them light up and smile when they get a house and then they’re posting online holding their keys. They’re doing selfies in front of the house and they’re so happy to finally be able to get into something, you know, and some of them start a family. I’ve got one young couple now that bought last year and they just got engaged last month and they’ve got a second puppy on the way. No kids yet, but they didn’t have those puppies when they moved in.

How has the pandemic and current recovery process affected buyers looking to move into our region? (Southern Chester County) The pandemic housing market The Cyr Team

By Natalie Smith Contributing Writer Adaptability is a strength of many successful businesses, a skill perhaps never more valuable than during this past year while dealing with the wide-ranging effects of COVID-19. Those helping their clients buy and sell homes in Southern Chester County are certainly no exception. The appeal of the area, with its scenery, proximity to charming towns and big cities, and good school districts, has still been a draw for homebuyers. With nearly two decades of combined professional experience, Vincent and Jane Cyr of Keller Williams Real Estate on Dilworthtown Road in West Chester are ably guiding their clients through the ever-changing property landscape. The Cyr Team tapped into its years of knowledge when Connections asked: How have the pandemic and current recovery process affected buyers looking to move into our region? Vincent Cyr: When you say move into our region, we have a lot of buyers right now who are re-evaluating their housing needs and priorities. So COVID-19 clearly has caused them pause and maybe make changes based upon what now is something that probably has more permanence to it. For instance, in the past they may not have

34

v——Spring/Summer

put as much emphasis on having a home office or having a defined home gym or fitness area. Jane Cyr: Or multiple home offices. Vincent Cyr: So that’s become more important to them. And If they have a family or children, having a place to play becomes more important as well because they were relying in many cases on external facilities or locations to be able to accommodate that, and all those are no longer open or consistently open. Jane Cyr: And I think for us it’s less of a factor when a buyer wanted to know what the commute to work looks like. If there is a commute to work, maybe they’re doing it less frequently. Maybe they have to go in only once or twice a month. So, they’re willing to drive a little bit farther to get the house in the lifestyle that they need right now going through the COVID-19 safety measures.  Connections: Quite a change from two years ago. Vincent Cyr: Exactly. It wasn’t important because they had all those facilities available to them. Jane Cyr: Like pools. People were hot and cold on them, because you could go to a pool club or join a country club. Now it seems everybody wants pools. Even our luxury market was kind of sluggish before COVID, and now it’s not the case. Vincent Cyr: Another thing that has probably caused buyers to re-evaluate things is even the

2021 • Volume 6——v


idea of multi-generational living. As Jane mentioned, the larger homes became more attractive again. There’s a point in which there was a concern that the McMansion was going to have a difficult time being sold, even up until 18 months ago, and now all the sudden, those are in demand again. Not only because of the space that affords, but also the ability for you to maybe provide housing for In-laws or parents. In the past you may not have had a need, but now people are a little more reluctant to go into assisted living or retirement communities or they want to have the ability to have these multi-generations together to celebrate the holidays and special occasions that have been put on hold or people have avoided out of concern for getting somebody infected.  Connections: Are buyers looking for newer or older homes or is size the most important factor?

v——For

Vincent Cyr: The biggest challenge we have is finding homes – period. There are far more buyers than homes. Buyers right now just want the ability to be able to see a home and get in there. Connections: Are people willing to wait? Jane Cyr: We set the expectation with our clients that it’s not going to be quick, but we will find a home. If something comes up, we’ve got to hustle. We do a lot of research for our clients beforehand. We don’t want to go in other people’s homes unless my clients are extremely interested because of the COVID circumstance. When we put out our own listings, we do a lot of things, like a 3-D walk through the house, besides taking pictures. We want to get as much information to the community without infringing on our client’s house. Vincent Cyr: We also have a lot of protocols that we follow. It’s all about safety.

How would you define/describe the current residential real estate market and how does this compare to same time last year. ‘All indications are 2021 will be a very good year’ Sandy Yeatman

By Monica Thompson Fragale Contributing Writer The COVID-19 pandemic has fanned the flames of the already-hot residential real estate market in this area, according to Sandy Yeatman of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Fox & Roach Kennett Home Marketing Center. “Inventory is low, interest rates are at a historic low, and many people have decided that they need more space (because of COVID),” Yeatman, an associate broker, said. “This local area market is hotter due to people moving out of cities and many have realized they can work from home now. It’s a different world.”  In the first two months of 2020, prior to COVID19, the real estate market was good. From March through May the real estate market was virtually locked down, and there was no in-person business being conducted. Some real estate agents and buyers did turn to a 100 percent virtual process, and a few buyers bought homes virtually.  “After the lockdown, restrictions were lifted and the COVID-19 pandemic prompted quarantines and social distancing. Electronic buying and selling has become more of the norm,” Yeatman said. Prior to the pandemic, interested buyers could usu-

v——Spring/Summer

ally find a handful of pictures of a house. Now, it’s normal to find as many as five times more pictures so that buyers can evaluate a house. Professional staging has become much more important because, if you don’t pass the picture test, buyers will never come to tour your home. Some agents are including floor plans of the house and dimensions so that buyers can more easily picture themselves in the home. Others might have pictures of the property taken by a drone or by a professional, and many properties now include a virtual tour and 3-D photography. “The more information you can provide, the better it is,” Yeatman said.  COVID-19 has not changed what needs to be done to buy or sell a house. But it has changed how it’s done.  Having a prospective buyer tour a house is often more virtual or, if in person, “showing houses is a much more restrictive practice,” Yeatman said. “Only two buyers and an agent can tour a home at one time. Buyers are asked not to touch anything in the house.” Sellers are also asked to open all closet doors and cupboards in advance, she said, and extra time has been built in between showings. “All showings are scheduled with a half-hour

2021 • Volume 6——v


in between appointments so things like door knobs and handles can be wiped down between showings,” Yeatman said. Prior to the pandemic, agents would leave brochures and other literature in the homes for sale for prospective buyers to take home with them. Now, those same brochures, the seller’s disclosure, and other relevant information is found online.  “Contracts can be done all electronically through DocuSign,” Yeatman said. “An agent fills it all out and sends it over to the buyers or sellers for them to sign electronically, and they can electronically return it. There’s no question it makes the transaction more efficient.” Settlements that once drew the buyer, the seller, and their agents are often limited to just the buyers and their agent. “We now limit the number of individuals who can attend a settlement,” Yeatman said. 
“We are trying to minimize any possibility of COVID-19 exposure to any party involved in the transaction.”  One year out from the time when this area shut down because of the pandemic, signs are pointing to continued success in the real estate market.  “All indications are 2021 will be a very good year,” Yeatman said. “If you are thinking of selling your home, there may have never been a better time.”

As southern Chester County residents’ lives were turned upside down, incomes were impacted, and housing needs underwent significant upheavals. Hope for a return to normal appears to be coming closer as we progress through 2021, but the impact of the pandemic is likely to continue for some time to come. To get a feel for what has been happening in the southern Chester County real estate market and where it appears to be heading, we talked to area real estate agents. Peter Fitzgerald joined Beiler-Campbell to become part of their 45-plus years of local experience, trust, and dedication to this community. Since 1973, the team at Beiler-Campbell Realtors has served clients, colleagues, and the community with integrity and success. “At Beiler-Campbell, we are a locally owned business that services Chester County, Lancaster County, and Delaware County, and we have a heightened responsibility to work with our clients in a way that benefits our entire community,” Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald was asked to look back and tell us which month had the highest home sales and to summarize overall how

the market fared during this time. Fitzgerald explained, “Over the course of 2020, in particular from March to December, I noticed a number of trends that will help both buyers and sellers be better informed as we look ahead. In Chester County, the strongest months in terms of home sales in 2020 were June and July, which might be explained best from the pent-up demand from March, April, and May when we were forced to close temporarily for our public health. Home sales continued to be strong through the fall and winter, and we finished 2020 as the strongest year in home sales since 2006. “When we compare the average sales price of residential homes in Chester Country from the 4th quarter of 2019 to the 4th quarter of 2020, we see an increase of 13.8 percent year over year. The exceptionally low inventory of available homes is likely a strong contributing factor. Historically, we are accustomed to seeing a four- to sixmonth inventory of homes on the market. By contrast, in 2020, we often found ourselves with a four-week inventory of homes.”

He is well versed in helping people through foreclosures and short sales, as well as dealing with investors. “At RE/MAX EXCELLENCE we’re a full-service firm. We specialize in all manners of real estate,” he said. Orose was asked to share commentary on 2020 foreclosures in Chester County and explain and include the zip code with the highest foreclosure rate. What is the outlook and forecast for 2021 with regard to foreclosures? “In 2020, foreclosures in January and February were pretty high months with 60 foreclosures counted. Then all hell broke loose. Foreclosures in general are down very heavily from the beginning of the year and last year, primarily due to COVID-19, and the law halting impending foreclosures,” Orose said. “The Highest foreclosure rates in Chester County are in Exton (19341 zip code); Malvern (19355 zip code; and Coatesville (19320 zip code). Foreclosure rates are 1 in 7,029 for Exton, 1 in 9,850 for Malvern, and 1 in 10,512 for Coatesville. Pennsylvania has not allowed foreclosures since last year, but that order expires Feb. 28, 2021. At

the time of this writing, the order had not been extended. “What I’m looking at are two scenarios. In the first, if the protections are not extended, I think we might see is an exponential increase in foreclosures, starting in late summer 2021 or spring 2022, as they hit the market. That would create an increase in properties that will balance the demand with supply. The way this market is going right now, there is no supply.” Orose continued, “If the government steps in and extends government protections, they are not going to be able to foreclose and it will be winter 2022 before we start seeing a massive increase in foreclosures. We still might see a large uptick in commercial foreclosures because investment-owned property is not covered by these regulations. “On commercial properties, there are major retailers moving out of little strip malls—they aren’t paying the rent so the owner is not paying the mortgage. Something in the current stimulus package may help. A lot of developers are interested in getting into some of these shopping center properties. In foreclosures on the commercial properties, we are looking at an uptick that could be pretty big.”

With that in mind, one big question remains: will the housing market in 2021 follow the same trajectory, or are we facing a possible downturn? ‘We are currently seeing a 10-1 buyer to seller ratio in the market. This is being fueled by a shortage of inventory and historically low interest rates. We have seen 16 record lows for interest rates in the last 12 months. Rates in the 2% to 3% range appear to be the new norm. “The current level of inventory is the lowest that I have experienced in my 17-year career as a professional real estate agent. Sellers have more leverage and opportunity than in the recent past. However,

buyers are extremely motivated to take advantage of the low interest rates, which gives them access to housing beyond their reach in previous years. In most instances, even when houses are priced accurately and in good condition, successful buyers can expect to pay at or over asking price and must get creative with the terms in order to close the deal. “In Chester County, single-family homes saw pending sales increase by 13.7 percent in January 2021 relative to January 2020, with 482 homes selling in January 2021 at a median sales price of $382,651. Moreover, the average days on the market fell by 27 days. The next 12 months look just as promising, with interest rates expected to remain low, buyer traffic staying high, and inventory predicted to rise as more homeowners get vaccinated for COVID-19 and feel more comfortable allowing buyers to visit their homes. The key to a successful transaction in this market is hiring the right realtor, one who knows the market and can guide you along the way.”
