Estate style living in manheim township in the Northern reaches of Lancaster. Large palacial lawns on massive acreage. It's not uncommon to see 2 story homes with 4 car garages in this community. These homes are built towards the homeowners needs.



Each home was built around the homeowner's lifestyle.  Most of these homes therefore have an out of state feel when compared to the usual Victorian Style made so common to this area.



Most of the homes in Stonehonge are custom builder showcase homes by renowned construction companies. Companies such as Simeral Construction and Costello whose projects were designed … (0 comments)

Castellum Realty llc - Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate
 
There is a difference between "appraisals" and "assessments" although the words are commonly used interchangeably. A educated consumer knows the differences:Assessments
Completed using an automated valuation program. Generally done once per year. Used to determine real estate taxes. Should be within a margin of error of +/- 10%. Appraisals
Done by licensed appraiser who looks at the home, and comps. Values property "real time" (as of the date of the report). Used to support sales prices or loan amounts. Should be as close to Fair Market Value as possible. … (4 comments)

Castellum Realty llc - Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate
Naturally, when purchasing a home, all buyers want to believe they are getting the best Real Estate deal possible. Briefly, we will discuss short sales and their relationship to the home purchase and its consumption. Let us first establish that when a buyer purchases a HOME, it is considered to be something that the buyer will live in or consume. Therefore, buying a home is naturally an emotional process as well as logical. If a buyer can streamline the emotional side and expand on the logical side of the equation, the … (2 comments)

Selling a house can be stressful and emotional at the best of times, but in today's marketplace, those emotions are exacerbated. Before a property is even listed, it is CRUCIAL that the home be in "showcase condition" or it will not stand a chance against the competition. With so many well priced, lovely homes on the market, why would a home buyer even consider purchasing a home that is dirty, needs painting, has old carpet, or is bejeweled with mirrors on the family room wall that were fashionable in the late 70's? … (1 comments)

A quick glance in the window displays downtown and at the yards in town are enough to let us know that the winter holidays are coming even without a calendar.
This time of year is both harder and easier to sell a house. Traditionally, fewer people are looking to move in the next five to six weeks, so there are likely to be fewer showings. However, the buyers coming through your home between now and January are not tire kickers. These people are usually serious about buying a home. When … (2 comments)

lancaster pa luxury real estate: Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate - What is a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure - 12/25/08 03:58 AM
 

Castellum Realty llc - Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate
For home borrowers ("mortgagors") facing foreclosure, a deed in lieu of foreclosure provides an alternative solution to the standard default process. In particular, the deed grants the lender (the "mortgagee") full rights to the property title to satisfy the conditions of the loan. Such agreements are a common form of mortgage contract settlement. In general, a deed is a right granted by a legal contract based upon mutual agreement; therefore, a deed-in-lieu must be based upon voluntary agreement knon as a "quitclaim deed" in good faith.

lancaster pa luxury real estate: Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate - Sell Your Home: Six Staging Tips - 12/24/08 11:16 PM
 

Castellum Realty llc - Lancaster PA Luxury Real Estate
How a home is presented can have a significant impact on how quickly a home sells and for what price.  Especially now, when most markets have an abundance of homes for buyers to choose from, it's important for sellers to carefully consider how their home is staged.
Buyers generally want to get as much space as their money can buy.  A moderate sized home that is presented well can often feel more spacious that a larger home that is not presented well.  In turn, that smaller home is likely to sell quicker and for a better relative price … (2 comments)
