condos: There are many different ways to get there! - 12/20/19 05:43 AM
I love adventure and being on a quest, part of the fun is enjoying the journey not just reaching the destination or goal.
I am currently visiting a friend in Germany. She is still working so I have a couple of days to entertain myself during the day. Yesterday, I decided to go to Ratzeburg, where I have been before and know how to get there using the local bus system, or thought I did.
I duly caught the right bus, and knew I needed to change and transfer to a different bus in the next village. However, my bus driver decided I … (21 comments)

condos: Is Fall 2019 the time to sell your T/E or Main Line home? - 10/07/19 02:24 PM
Last week at our Devon office meeting Ron Clarke, our Senior Vice President for the PA/NJ/DE region, had a very upbeat message, in fact the most upbeat I have heard him be about the Main Line, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties, market for several years. So, I asked him if we could get together and I could get his thoughts on selling your Main Line or Tredyffrin Easttown home right now in Fall 2019.
I travelled into our Philadelphia Center City office and met with Ron Clarke. I apologise in advance for the sound quality, it is a busy office and I … (7 comments)

condos: Moving to Tredyffrin Easttown - 01/04/19 11:56 AM
Moving to Tredyffrin Easttown or T/E as locals call it.
We moved to this area almost 30 years ago and what attracted us was the school district. With three young boys we were looking for somewhere that we felt would provide a good education. Whilst that is a subjective thing to measure, the last few years have seen Niche rank Tredyffrin Easttown School District highly.
There are some things to understand about Tredyffrin Easttown School District. It is made up from two different townships, Tredyffrin Township, and Easttown Township who combined many years ago to provide a better level of education to the children between … (4 comments)

condos: The Tredyffrin Easttown July 2017 Market Update - 08/11/17 07:53 AM
July 2017 Market Report for Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate
I always find it interesting to hear national statistics bandied about in relation to local real estate. I noticed this year whilst everyone was talking about how the lack of  inventory was causing a drop in sales and a slow down in settlements that this was not the case for Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate. So why don't national real estate stats apply to Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate?
In May when everyone was crying how there were few if any pending sales Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate had them stacked up for June and July settlements. … (5 comments)

condos: Sorry this one is gone - 342 Old Forge Crossing is under contract - 05/08/17 02:17 PM
Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate is selling quickly. We listed this lovely 1 bed 1 bath Old Forge Crossing second floor condo last week and we had lots of showings over the weekend.
Today our Old forge Crossing seller signed one of two offers we received and we are in escrow with a quick settlement.
Maybe it was the wonderful Old Forge Crossing inner courtyard location, or that lovely dogwood blooming in view of the balcony. Being just a short walk from the parking lot this condo is a perfect quiety location in the community. 
As we mentioned when we listed, living here allows you … (15 comments)

condos: Are your home inspection reports confidential? - 03/30/17 07:25 AM
Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate Question
Are your Home Inspection Reports Confidential?
 
This question came up recently with another agent in our office when the listing agent requested on behalf of their seller a copy of the home inspection reports. Our video below covers the confidentiality of your home inspection reports.
Tredyffrin Easttown Home Buyer asks if their home inspection reports are confidential? While it would seem that you as the home buyer pay for the inspections and thus for the reports under the agreement of sale in paragraph 13 it states the seller and their listing agent can request a free copy of any … (12 comments)

condos: Is this the right question? The HOA fee is how much? - 12/20/16 03:10 PM
The HOA fee is how much?
When looking at town homes and condo developments many buyers ask how much the HOA(Home Owners Association) fee or Condo fee is on a monthly basis. Is this the right question? The benefit of living in a community with a fee of one sort or another is that these fees take care of much of the general maintenance, possibly some of the exterior maintenance and in a condo even more. It allows the home owner to live their life without having to be concerned with as many chores on days off.
Everybody likes the fee to be … (26 comments)

condos: I'm thankful for Old Forge Crossing - 11/22/16 01:22 PM
I'm thankful for Old Forge Crossing!
Within a five to ten minute drive of my home sits Old Forge Crossing. This is a most delightful condo community of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and a number of 2 bedroom townhomes as well with 1 cottage. Located on the site of an old farm, this development was built as apartments by Prudential in the late 60's early 70's and then was turned condo.
It is a delightful setting on 40+ acres, with walking trails, a reflecting pond, community pool, tennis courts and also keyed access to the Chester Valley Trail. When our son moved … (0 comments)

condos: Main Line Homes are selling but few are coming on the market - 03/06/15 01:28 AM
Main Line Homes are selling, but few are coming on the market.

The real estate market is strong along the Main Line, however there is a problem. As homes are selling, little or no new homes are being listed and those that are sell quickly. Inventory continues to fall, making buyers act quickly when new listings appear. There is little or no time to think it over if you want to buy a Main Line Home right now. Also those homes that are in "inventory" are homes that have been listed longer and rejected by many buyers. These homes need … (2 comments)

Are you connected?
I was clearing snow yesterday and stopped to listen to the silence from the snow and looked at the oak trees beside our drive. They look pretty stark right now, cold and windblown with snow clinging to their sides. In the summer though they provide us with shade, and all year long there are birds hoping through them looking for insects or building nests. In the Spring they offer a hope of what is to come as their leaves begin to show and unfold, I know if the bulbs and flowers are not yet pushing through the earth they … (8 comments)

Confused, not sure which way to go?

I totally understand, many of our clients feel this way when they first come to us looking to buy a home on Philadelphia's Main Line for a variety of reasons.
They are relocating from  a city where prices frankly are not as high on the Main Line. When we first talk about wants and needs and they tell us their price range we have to educate them that this is a different ballpark, and prices here are not at AAA price points but at major league prices. It sometimes takes a little while, … (3 comments)
