A weekly review of recently sold homes in Wallingford PA and current market statistics.

There are 93 homes listed for sale in Wallingford PA and Nether Providence Township on March 31, 2015. There is 1 settlement scheduled for this week.

Buyers and sellers signed contracts to buy existing homes in February at the highest rate since June 2013, due to big leaps in the Midwestern and Western regions, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported Monday.

NAR’s Pending Home Sales Index, which tracks contract signings, rose 3.1% in February to 106.9, from a downwardly revised January level of 103.7.

February’s index is at its highest level since June 2013, when the measure stood at 109.4.
