Anyone looking to buy a home in the Philadelphia metro region is in luck, as new research released by real estate and rental marketplace Zillow puts the area among the top three of buyers’ markets nationwide, writes Shannon Rooney for

However this news may not be quite as welcome to sellers. The research has found price reductions on over 13 percent of area listings, and average time listed on Zillow of close to 101 days. In addition, it shows that in Philadelphia, home values are appreciating more slowly than the national average.

In fact, only Miami and Baltimore ranked higher than Philadelphia. The market on the opposite end of the scale was topped by San Francisco closely followed by San Jose, and Denver.

Locally, Zillow put Pennsauken, Waterford, Pennsville Township, West Deptford Township, and Deptford Township as the top five markets for buyers. They had between 131 and 173 days on the market and discounts of between 17.5 and 22 percent.

However sellers’ markets in the region do exist. These include Montgomery County’s North Wales, Telford, King of Prussia, and Hatfield with price cuts between 6.1 and 11.9 percent and 82 to 90 days on the market.
