Main Line Real Estate, Willistown Township Market Report for 2nd half of 2010. Single family home price per sq foot rose again this half year in Willistown to $220 per sq foot, from $199 and $195 previously. Days on market are pretty long at 123, and prices realized to asking price are one of the lowest in the surrounding areas at 89%. Sale numbers also were not high with only 39 sales in the second half of the year. Townhomes priced at $139 per square foot, a drop from $143 it was previously, with a property marketing period of 121 days, but realizing 96% of asking price. This number might be skewed by homes being relisted with a lower asking price as there was a big difference in days for property marketing and days of last listing to sale. For this Main Line Real Estate Market Report...

Sometimes the best location is just down the road a bit.   Willistown Knoll, Willistown Woods, and Worington Commons are centrally located but still provide the feel and immediate access to the country living in Chester County and Delaware County Pennsylvania that the region is known for. These back to back communities located in the southwest corner of Willistown Township Chester County offer an incredibly convenient location.  They are adjacent to the West ChesterPike just west of its intersection with Route 926 along the Delaware County / Chester County border. This location in southwest Willistown Township provides direct access to West Chester just minutes to the west, to Delaware via Route 926/Street Rd and then 202 south, Southern Delaware County and Media by Route 352, and to Ne...
