Philadelphia Real Estate Helpful News and Views : Bakers Bay Condo Call for Free Evaluation Waterfront Gated Phila Pa

Bakers Bay Condo Call for Free Evaluation Waterfront Gated Phila Pa

Mid rise bakers bay

Let's see what is happening in the Baker's Bay Condo Community . This is Hot off The Press and So is the Condo market . Units are selling in a flash .  I am showing a listing and as I am returning to my car I am not receiving a phone call asking if my buyer is interested . I am told the unit is under contract ?


  • Currently listed for sale three  : 1 BR  1.5 Bath units w/den Mid-rise unit with den  + balcony - sq ft  approx 1441  Priced $131,500 - $167,900 
  • Currently listed for sale  :  2 BR  2.5 Penthouse  unit  w/den Mid-rise +balcony waterfront view sq ft approx 2530  Priced $399,900


There are six pending units in the Bakers Bay community . If you read my blogs you know the rules . I am wondering about the rules but I do stick to them . We do not discuss price or what units went under contract for . It is not public knowledge . These are the rules . If you have any questions and would like to discuss them with me feel free to contact me . Those that have know i love to discuss Bakers Bay . If I do not know the answer I will not speculate . I will find out the right answer and call you back .


It is my professional opinion that I see prices start to rise . It is also my opinion that selling the unit to the first bidder is not always in the best interest of the seller . Usually if it is my listing I allow all scheduled appointments for the day to show the property . Then contact each agent inform them I have a contract and ask if their buyer is interested . This way I can get the best possible price for my seller with the best possible terms . I believe that is my fiduciary duty to my seller . 


While showing some of these pending properties I no sooner put my keys into the ignition of my car then I received a cancellation notice of showing . WHAT ??? I looked at the time framed . No I was not late . I had scheduled my showing between 2:30 -3:30  PM  it was 2;45  PM .  The message said property under contract


Holy Bananas! I can understand you want to sell the unit but what has happened to professional courtesy . Pick up the phone before hand and cancel the appointment . Do not waste my time or the buyers on seeing a property that is not available . Second perhaps my buyer who is a cash buyer would have offered over full price .  Is this in the best interest of the seller ?  Food for though when selling your unit in Bakers Bay


SOLD there have been Five settled units in the last thirty day

  • SOLD THREE 1 BR 1.5 bath w /den Garden Units  approx 1147 sq ft 

      Priced $124,900 --- $145,000

  • SOLD TWO  2 BR 2 Bath  Garden units approx 1385 sq ft

     Priced $153,000 ---- $155,000


My professional advise to buyers is you have to decide when we walk in the door of a condo unit . I have told my buyers if you get that feeling it is home you can not wait . I will call the listing agent right away . Calling me tomorrow may be too late in today's market place . They understand if they snooze they lose . New units come on the market and I want them to find the right one for them . I also do not want them to be slow on the trigger Sellers when you list with me you will get the best possible price . That is my fiduciary duty to you .


That is what is new in Bakers Bay this month . Please stop by in the next several weeks and read Philadelphia News and Views to see what is new .
