Brokers Open house in Yardley, Pa., Bucks County - 01/22/10 11:22 PM
Whenever I put a house on the market, one of the first things we schedule, is an open house for realtors, called a brokers open house. I created a short video, showing what goes on, at a typical brokers open house. Realtors attend brokers open houses, so that they are familiar with what is on the market. Often they are trying to determine whether a particular house will suit the needs of their client. My brokers open houses are generally catered, but will always include food. We invite realtors to join me for lunch, while previewing the house. This strategy ensures (0 comments)

So you have an underground oil tank in Yardley, Lower Makefield Township, Newtown, Upper Makefield Township, Bucks County, Pa. - 01/18/10 11:30 PM
I represented a seller on a house that closed in Lower Makefield Township, recently, that was heated with oil, and had a tank burried in the ground. I advised the seller, over a year ago, to have the tank removed, prior to listing the house. If you are not familiar with the possible complications of having an oil tank in the ground, you probably wonder why I would suggest that. The answer is that if oil gets into the ground, it creates a potentially very difficult and expensive, enviornmental issue. I preferred that the seller deal with the tank, (1 comments)
Tax Credit for home purchase, revisited, Yardley, Newtown, Upper Makefield, Lower Makefield, Bucks County, Pa. - 01/18/10 11:24 PM
I thought it would be helpful, today, to take a more detailed look at the 2010 extension of the 8,000 first time home buyer tax credit, along with the new, $6500 credit that is available to existing home owners, who purchase a house. I have pointed our in previous posts, that the statistics showed that the first time home buyer tax credit, that expired on November 30th, last year, clearly had an effect on the number of transactions that occured in November.

Real estate statistics in Yardley, Newtown, Upper Makefield Township, Lower Makefield Township & Bucks County - 01/11/10 01:47 PM
I have not done this in a number of posts, but I wanted to take a very detailed look at market statistics, through the end of November, in some of the markets that I serve. In virtually all of the markets in which I work in Bucks County, the pace of 2009 year to date units has continued to improve. For example, in all of Bucks County, the number of single family homes this November, was 79% higher than November of 2008. Some specific examples of that are pretty impressive.
