New restaurant launches in Berwyn - 09/30/10 12:44 PM
Trudy and I stopped by Alfredo last night, a new Italian Restaurant that has opened in the old San Nicola space in Berwyn at 668 Lancaster Ave. The layout of the restaurant has changed from the old San Nicola, it is now a BYO which seems to be the case for many new restaurants nowadays. The kitchen is based on dishes from the Naples area, which is where the owner comes from. As we walked in we saw friends sitting at a table with their daughter also trying it out. We had a great evening together with good food. They had (2 comments)

Main Line Philadelphia market in Devon and Wayne area seems to be moving - 09/23/10 08:41 AM
This past week, I have gone to make appointments for an out of town client only to find several houses that have just come on the market are under offer. Good news for our area, bad news for buyers as many still think it is a buyers market. Now we don't know till they settle if these houses sold for asking price, or if they will make it through the inspections and mortgage contingencies without problems to settlement. However, it is an indication that there are buyers out there, with the low mortgage rates, who are prepared to get off the fence if (0 comments)
Following what could have been a major disaster, a toilet that overflowed, the sellers recently, repainted the house, removing all the flowery wall paper and choosing neutral colors for every room. Then as some of the floor needed to be repaired on the ground floor, they chose bamboo floors and laid them throughout, choosing a brazilian cherry color, and replaced the baseboards with a classier deeper profile, what a difference. This Radnor home on a flag lot, just opposite Coopertown elementary school has one of the quietest locations I have experienced in the Main Line Area. Usually there is always (1 comments)
Stimulate, Don't Alienate - A Mortgage Proposal for Powerful Stimulus ! - 09/11/10 08:43 AM
This is a very interesting idea. I have come to believe that stimulus money for housing is not a good plan as it is like crack cocaine with everyone waiting for the next hit. I think some rules need to be put in place for this proposal but to actually reward those who have kept up to date on their payments, and allow them to reduce their payments would be a big benefit, especially removing the appraisal issue which is what holds so many people back and would avoid so many foreclosures that are in the pipeline. However, isn't this what (0 comments)
What a way to celebrate 9/11? - 09/10/10 05:54 PM
It saddens me that 9 years following the disaster of 9/11 America has moved away from the wonderful position they took immediately following that disaster and attack. Our fight is with terrorists who happen to claim to be Muslims, but not with Muslims. As was stated by George Bush himself. When Britain dealt with the IRA their fight was against terrorists not the Irish people, although many on both tried to project it as otherwise. But peace came when people, mainly women decided enough was enough. Today, in a country founded upon religious freedom and tolerance, we have so called pastors threatening to burn (4 comments)
Solving the housing and banking crisis in one step! - 09/08/10 02:33 PM
Yes, I know, if the people who got us there cannot work it out how to save us, Nick why do you think you know how to solve the housing and banking crisis. But that may be exactly why. I look at it from the outside and with street sense. So let's recap a minute some of the problems. Mortgages that no one knows what they are worth! Homes that are upside down, the owners owe more than they are worth! Lack of funds for borrowers Every bank with foreclosure and short sale inventory knows at this stage from the statistics (1 comments)
Philadelphia Area Housing Report - 09/08/10 01:19 PM
The most recent Credit Suisse Survey on housing for Philadelphia shows a lot of negative information. Traffic is below expectations of agents and prices are declining with longer time on market for those homes that are listed. 75% of agents surveyed said traffic was below their expectations for the month of August, a generally slow month usually in the housing market. Home prices continued to fall with sellers needing to reduce prices or offer incentives to create sales according to 60% of the agents surveyed. 75% of agents also said the time needed to sell a home had increased as well. Some (1 comments)
