Kennett Square, PA Commercial Real Estate Market is Booming, Says Local Broker

Chester County Commercial Real Estate Agent Jeff Dowd says Kennett Square is in the Early Stages of a Market that is Taking Off

Online PR News – 28-August-2017 – Kennett Square, PA – Chester County commercial real estate broker Jeff Dowd, an (Associate Broker) at Zommick McMahon Commercial Real Estate, Inc. does about 50 deals a year. This makes him one of the top commercial real estate agents in the greater Philadelphia areas. Jeff has nearly two decades of experience in the industry, and he has done numerous multi-million dollar deals in cities and towns throughout the region. Yet in all his years serving this area, he had not been involved in a transaction in Kennett Square until this year.

“I have been in the commercial real estate business for 17 years, and I have never done a deal in Kennett Square, PA until 2017,” Dowd says. “This year, I have already completed two transactions, and I’m currently working on a third one with a well-known Philadelphia-based restaurant. There has also been talk of a new hotel coming here in the near future.”

Kennett Square is a historic town in Chester County, PA with a population of just over 6,000 people. It produces roughly 60% of the country’s mushrooms, which has earned it the nickname “mushroom capital of the world.” Dowd believes the surge in the commercial market is largely driven by a strong residential market that delivers great value for home buyers.

“On the residential side, people are flocking here because homes are more affordable, schools are highly-rated, and they enjoy a great quality of life.” Dowd continues. “People also appreciate Kennett Square’s proximity to both Philadelphia and Wilmington, DE. With the population growing, it only makes sense for restaurants, retail shops and other commercial entities to move in and serve this expanding market.”

Here’s what Dowd’s two most recent clients had to say about their decisions to locate in Kennett Square:

“I’ve been marketing to a new demographic, and I thought it was time to open another location and make it more convenient for my growing clientele. I’ve noticed recently that Kennett Square is becoming more developed, so I called Jeff to ask his advice about acquiring a property there. Jeff informed me that Kennett Square was becoming a hot commercial spot, and he went to work right away to find something for me. Jeff negotiated a great deal on a property, and connected me with all the right people to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction. I couldn’t be happier with my new location, and I’m currently putting the finishing touches on it so we will be ready to open in the near future.” Dr. Maureen O’Leary,

“I have been watching the demographics over the past years in the southern Chester County area, and it's a growing area. I thought expanding to Kennett Square would give me a good opportunity to reach the ever-increasing number of people who live there,” Joseph DeSimone, Miracle Ear.

With its storied history, numerous local attractions and festivals, high quality of life, and residential boom, Dowd believes the Kennett Square, PA commercial market is super hot and ideally positioned for exponential growth.

“If you are looking for a great place to locate or expand your business, Kennett Square, PA has a lot to offer. We are currently in the early stages of a town that is taking off, so now is the perfect time to get in on the ground floor.”
