easttown real estate: Frequently asked real estate questions - how long does it take? - 01/26/17 01:16 PM
Frequently asked real estate questions - How long does it take from offer to settlement?
In Tredyffrin Easttown we often get asked by buyers how long the real estate process is for buying a home. Obviously, it depends, a buyer needs to find the right home. But Nick Vandekar, a Tredyffrin Township resident and Main Line Realtor can answer how long it takes once an agreement is accepted to settlement.
Generally, if the buyer is using a mortgage, the time is 45-60 days. Most mortgage firms since TRID implementation in the Tredyffrin Easttown area require a minimum of 45 days. This allows for appraisals, the … (9 comments)

easttown real estate: Berwyn changes - 07/14/11 01:35 AM
I wrote a couple of weeks ago about how the old Berwyn School which became the T/E School Administration building has been demolished. Was at Easttown Library today and noticed that the fences have been taken down and made me realize that the properties on First Avenue opposite the old building, just got a big boost in value.

Instead of a darkand dirty building, they now have this great view of the playing fields and when all that grass eventually comes in and greens up a bit it will be a fabulous view of Open Space.

Tredyffrin Easttown school district consists of Tredyffrin Township and Easttown Township along the Main Line, Berwyn, Devon, Strafford and Wayne are all part of the two townships.

easttown real estate: New Construction Homes in Berwyn PA - 12/23/10 07:16 AM
I noticed a couple of new construction homes in Berwyn, PA recently. A home that had sold earlier in the summer in Berwyn village in Pennsylvania and obviously the new owner got permission to tear that down and sub-divide the lot to build two new construction homes in Berwyn, PA. At the moment only one has gone up, but they have a roof on and seem to be progressing quickly. You will not have much yard, but are situated right next to the secret little park I wrote about earlier this year right in the heart of Berwyn Village, PA.

Trudy and Istopped by the Royal Tea House this afternoon in Berwyn and met the owner Eileen Hoban. What used to be the Berwyn Coffee Shop has been transformed into a tea lovers haven or even heaven.

easttown real estate: So where are prices going in Tredyffrin Easttown now? - 02/26/09 01:57 AM
With the new stimulus bill having been signed into law what effect is it likely to have on our home prices in Tredyffrin Easttown School district? Many agents are seeing increased activity among first time home buyers throughout the country and this is reflected locally as well. This being a more built up area our first time home buyers find it harder to afford homes in this district but Chesterbrook, Drummers Lane, Old Forge Crossing and Devon Green offer good alternatives for many first time buyers looking for smaller homes and willing to live in condo or home owner association developments with … (0 comments)

easttown real estate: Great shop front in Berwyn, PA - 02/02/09 02:26 AM
 

We just listed a small shop or office location right on Lancaster Ave in the heart of Berwyn Village. About 760 sq feet this would make a wonderful small boutique or coffee shop. Rent is very reasonable and the location could not be better being very close to the station and surrounded by restaurants and other retail.
If you know where Berwyn Hardware is located this is almost next door, The Art Conservatory is next door and Fritz Lumber is right across the road. It has two large windows in the front as you can see, great so your … (0 comments)

easttown real estate: More and more homes coming on the market - 05/13/08 01:11 AM
After many months of low inventory in our area, Radnor, Tredyffrin and Easttown townships in Pennsylvania we are seeing an abundance of homes being placed on the market. Amazingly in our area we are also seeing a large number of homes for sale by owners.
So what sells a home?
There are many things that sell a home, pricing it right, preparing it for sale correctly, maintenance of the home, having the correct paperwork prepared, and marketing of the home correctly. It is a combination of all of these not just any one of them. Dropping the ball in one can hinder and … (1 comments)
