West Chester PA Market Report


It is the job of your realtor to help you and advise you on every step of the way but it’s always wise to do your own research. Your agent will always advise you and tell you about the most recent repairs that have been done to a specific home but it’s up to you to decide whether you want to buy the house or not.


Get pre-approved for a mortgage 

I would be happy to recommend a local lender.   

It’s very important that you get pre-approved for a mortgage before you begin your search for a new home. This will help you to gauge yourself and know the types of houses that you can afford to buy. In addition, it’s wise to have an approximate amount of the type of house that you are looking for. You will discover that a three bedroom house in one place might have a different selling price with a three bedroom house in another place. It’s therefore important that have a rough estimate of the house that you are looking for in the location that you intend to live.


West Chester PA is a small town with less population, low crime rate, no traffic, and quiet neighborhood and above all low cost of living. Buying a home in this town will make your life enjoyable because basic goods and services are readily available and very affordable.

The Townes at Malvern

The Townes at Malvern is a new construction townhome community in Malvern PA to be built by Ryan Homes.  As of right now no exact completion date is out or a total number of units to be built.  The details are few but I will share all the info I could find.  

The plan is for Ryan Homes to offer 5 different styles of homes to chose from, ranging up to 2500 sq. ft.  All the units will have a 1 car garage as well as a basement.  The prices being advertised can be disregarded, I would not expect to sell many of these units sell for under $300,000.  Also keep in mind it will have a hefty tax bill and a HOA payment.  

The homes are to be built in a very convenient location right off of RT 30 in Malvern.

Laurel Ridge West Chester PA

Laurel Ridge West Chester PA

Laurel Ridge in West Chester PA is a new construction community located directly off Rt 100 in West Chester PA. Laurel Ridge will consist of 17 homes on half acre lots, being built by Glen M White Builders. The sign for Laurel Ridge West Chester PA is on Rt 100 and says that the homes will start from the high $500's.  I would not expect to see too many sales in this community in the $500's, builder upgrades can add up real fast. Laurel Ridge will consist of 5 different different models to choose from with each model having 2 styles. This creates an opportunity for 10 different homes in a community of 17, so it shouldn't seem too cookie cutter.  


If you are interested in this community please whatever you do, do not call the builders agent for more information or to make an offer.  This agent works for the builder, their loyalty lies with him and the hundreds of deals they bring to the table.  You are a customer to this agent, not a client.  It is free to you to have a buyers agent represent you in the transaction and look out solely for your best interests.  I would be happy to help you with this or explain how these relationships work better.  



Also here is a short video on the builder.  


After searching the builder for a while, I can only find one homeowner who was not satisfied with his work.  They currently have 5 homes listed on the MLS with the least expensive at $590,000 and the most expensive listed at $676,500.  Keep in mind these are base prices.  


If you want to see these or any other homes check out my website  


If you want more information or to tour the community give me a call at 610-761-1602. 

Update:  Model home is complete, other homes are coming along fast.
