Featured Properties... Our Team WWW.CBPREM.COM A Message from the President: 315 MEADOW LANE $438,900—TELFORD, PA Brand new listing! Report for 2014 and Outlook for 2015 Real Estate Market continued on its path to recovery which was supported by the demand of 1st time home buyers, low interest rates, job market stabilizing, unemployment rate shrinking, and stock market hitting record highs. It is expected that this trend will continue, and strengthen the real estate market thru 2015. Housing prices across all price points saw a 6% appreciation according to the National Association of Realtors. The price appreciation creates space for the existing homeowner to consider a larger home to meet the households needs thus fueling the move up market. Again it is expected to see continued demand in the move up market. All good signs with positive results that will continue thru 2015 and beyond. 100 MARY AMBLER WAY $374,800—AMBLER, PA 3 Beds | 2&1/2 Baths | 2,452 Sqft 625 SHEARER ST 190 COUNTRY VIEW $367,900—NORTH WALES, PA $319,800—TELFORD, PA $329,890 —CONSHY, PA 4 Beds | 2&1/2 Baths | 2,752 Sqft 3 Beds | 4 Baths | 2,414 Sqft 3 Beds | 2 Baths | 2,100 Sqft 108 LIGHT ST David J.
