Free Market Analysis Bakers Bay Gated Waterfront Condos Phila Pa


It is that time to check what is happening in Bakers Bay gated waterfront condos . Once again there is a shortage of condominiums for sale . We will check Trend for the last time as we are converting and merging to Bright MLS a much more sophisticated version that spans many states and areas .It will also allow our clients to search in a portal .This portal will give them access to our information . It will enable them to search active listings without being frustrated .Many buyers search the Internet on third party sites only to discover the houses are sold or under contract . This portal search will alleviate this frustration .


Active : 2 BR 2 Bath  2nd floor unit in the Garden Section  1381 sq' fireplace chairlift   $159,900

Active : 2 BR  2.5 Bath  penthouse unit in MID Rise 2530 sq'  w/den  $335,900


There are two properties under contract . We do not discuss these properties until they are closed . If you read my blog you know the rules .  Anything can happen in between the times . Therefore we do not discuss  If you would like to discuss these waterfront condos please feel free to call me . I love to talk and discuss but for now we will wait until they close .


Now let us take a look at closed properties .There were two in the last thirty days . One in the Gardens and one in the Mid-rise

SOLD : 2 BR 2 Bath   Gardens  1381 sq' needs updating  Sold $154,900  first floor  in 5 days

SOLD : 1 BR  1.5 Bath Mid-Rise 1441 sq'   $133.88 per sq'   Sold $164,100  2 days



In my professional opinion we are seeing prices rise again in Bakers Bay Condos . That is because of the lack of inventory in my personal opinion. I have had buyers looking for the perfect condo . Every week they had something to look at . I have them on auto email . They called me to tell me there was something wrong with their email

I had to inform them it was not their email but the lack of inventory . What they could have chosen before will now cost them more and will need updating. They are very discouraged . It is the old saying "could have should have would have "  I did warn them but they did not listen . When the right one comes up you can not go home and think about it . There are other agents that have buyers  just like you waiting for the right condo to come along .  They say well we need to think about and go home . Need I say more the property is under agreement by the time they call me back .


Bakers Bay has so much to offer it's residents . That carefree style of living . There is no outside maintenance . Especially in the winter months when it is snowing who wants to shovel snow .  Not me !  Bakers Bay has a wonderful crew of people who come and remove snow . The side walks are cleared as well as the road  . Salt is laid down and you can watch the snow from your window



There is so much to do at Bakers Bay so many trips are planned . There are Social events . Indoor pool and Sauna with a jacuzzi  what a great way to relax    There is also a gym so you can even cancel your gym membership  . That is unless you have Silver Sneakers then enjoy your benefits . There is a music group that plays . I could keep going as the list is endless



I have not sold a condo to anyone who lives there that was unhappy living here . Bakers Bay is a wonderful place to live . The management and maintenance people are some of the best I have ever dealt with . They are friendly and know their community . They bend over backwards to assist you .



Bakers Bay Condos ares located

in the Torresdale section of NE Philadelphia

and are a Gated Waterfront Community



Condo living is not for everyone but if you think it may be for you
