nick vandekar: A conversation about mortgages and buyer behaviours - 02/16/21 11:58 AM
We all know what we should do, most of us though, don't do what we know we should or we even sometimes do the opposite. Where a mortgage is concerned that can be disasterous if you want to buy a home.
I had a conversation with Shawn DeAngelo of Prosperity Home Mortgages this week about some do's and don'ts when applying for a mortgage, watch our video, admittedly a litte long but packed with information and share any that you can think of that might derail a mortgage in the comments.
Interested in buying a Main Line home, contact Nick Vandekar, Selling the … (9 comments)

nick vandekar: How to make your offer stand out in today's market - 02/05/21 10:54 AM
We all know that in today's hot, hot buyer's market that an offer needs to stand out and be a little different. Prosperity Home Mortgage has been offering a great product the Propserity Buyers' Advantage; this is a program where buyers get fully approved for a loan, barring the appraisal and the title work. All paperwork from the buyer is reviewed by an underwriter and a commitment is issued with only the purchase details needing to be completed.
I had a great conversation today with Shawn DeAngelo of Prosperity Home Mortgage about this program and some other things about preapprovals and mortgages. … (7 comments)

nick vandekar: Why your pre-approval is no longer as good as you think it is! - 01/27/21 09:10 AM
As agents for years we have been telling our prospective clients to speak to a mortgage provider and to get preapproved as the first step in searching for and buying a home.
Most prospective buyers know this and dutifully speak to a mortgage provider and get their preapproval for a mortgage and with this in hand then contact a Realtor to help them buy a home.
But something has happened over the last few years that no longer makes that pre-approval of any value. For the past three years, agents have been talking about the low inventory of homes for resale, as well … (11 comments)

nick vandekar: 2020 sales in Old Forge Crossing, Devon PA - 01/21/21 11:49 AM
Old Forge Crossing Sales Data for 2020
 
This condominium development remains popular and whilst the pandemic slowed things down prices rose and the number of total sales for the year were slightly higher.
 
At the beginning of the year things were quite slow, and in 2020 we had just a few more sales than in previous years with 25 total sales. This is in line with what we have seen across the Main Line real estate market with a reduced inventory and many buyers ready, willing and able to snap up inventory when it has come on the market. As a result we … (6 comments)

nick vandekar: Video tour of 315 Valley Stream lane, Chesterbrook PA 19087 - 10/21/20 01:41 PM
Our new listing in Chesterbrook at 315 Valley Stream Lane, Wayne PA 19087 goes live in the MLS today. We already have multiple appointments lined up for today, an Open House is planned for Saturday from 1-4 pm and I don't think this 3 bed, 2 bath condo is going to last long, especially as it has the added benefit of a single car detached garage, a west facing patio to enjoy the lingering rays of the sun as it dips below the horizon along with a wonderful kitchen as well.
 
Take a tour, virtually with our video, and stop by on … (15 comments)

nick vandekar: Sold and Closed 744 Moore Avenue, another happy buyer! - 09/29/20 01:57 PM
Finding the right home is not easy at the best of times. Lack of inventory, moving across the country, learning your way around, looking at homes on line and virtually all made it harder for this client. 
 
But, after a couple of weeks or arriving in PA, settling down, renting a short term apartment, finding a new car, getting school established for her son, she was ready.
 
We took a day to tour, we visited ten homes, many we were able to discount right away. I had her son naming them as we left so they would remember them and ranking them as … (18 comments)

nick vandekar: 431 Ivy Mills Road - procured and closed for my buyers - 08/14/20 09:46 AM
Having listings right now is a wonderful position to be in, but that sometimes means you have clients looking for homes in a market where finding inventory is hard and when you do, most likley there is strong competition.
 
I had been working with some clients and several homes sold as fast as they came on the market. Even homes that they saw that had been on the market a while were selling.
However, they were prepared, had their commitment from the lender, and when the right property popped were ready to make an immediate offer before even seeing it. The seller was … (4 comments)

nick vandekar: Don't wait! Taking action leads to success - 07/30/20 09:26 AM
Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor e-Pro, CRS, RCS-D, Vets is always encouraging us to Take Action in his posts. This week I got a call from a client who I have been showing homes to for a little while, but all fell short for one reason or another. They had just seen a home they had driven by and wanted to make an offer.
 
It was a coming soon listing, which meant no showings. They loved the location and the look of the lot from the road. It was an estate selling the home, and they did not want to wait till it … (4 comments)

nick vandekar: Too late for this Old Forge Crossing condo - 07/24/20 10:18 AM
 
This beautiful one bed, one bath condo with a rare water view is in a prized location in Old Forge Crossing in Devon PA 19333.
After a flurry of activity on Tuesday, we had several offers to review and my sellers selected one they thought was the best. So 437 Old Forge Crossing, Devon PA 19333 is now under contract and a pending sale.
 
The buyer had lost out on several other offers and had learnt their lesson well crafting a strong offer with great terms for my sellers.
 
 
Seen by many buyers at 437.OldForgeCrossing.com, this home had lots to offer, with many recent upgrades. Located … (9 comments)

nick vandekar: Valley Forge Park offers so much - 07/16/20 08:30 AM
When I chose to live in Chesterbrook last year I knew access to Valley Forge Park was a big reason why I chose this location. Easy access from my front door to walk in nature. I literally step out my door and start walking along Valley Creek. Almost every day this walk offers me something wonderful to be grateful for seeing.
Last night, as we were returning, I see something swimming in the creek, then realize it is a beaver. I have never seen a beaver other than at the zoo before and definitely not in this area. It was just swimming … (11 comments)

nick vandekar: What are you looking at? - 07/07/20 08:28 AM
I have been thinking or pondering about this recently on my walks. What am I looking at? Is it the whole picture or just a part? I had seen some photos of a listing recently, selling a life style they were wonderful, selling the house, not so much as they were all close ups of a wonderful bed with beautiful sheets and pillows, but that was all you could see, not the room at all.
 
Sometimes we need to focus on the details, and other times we need to step back and see the whole picture. A small detail can derail a … (29 comments)

nick vandekar: 307 Tregaron Road in Bala Cynwyd is under contract - 05/28/20 01:57 PM
As PA has now been open for just over a week for real estate, we are seeing a lot more activity. I placed 307 Tregaron Road in Bala Cynwyd under contract today, after receiving an agreement from some first time home buyers.
My investors did a lovely job, much more than they had expected when they puchased this property, updating lots of things throughout the house.
The house is in a great location in Lower Merion, close to Montgomery Avenue, lots of shops, cafes, restaurants.
So, we have a 60 day close, but my client is pleased it is under agreement.

nick vandekar: Closed - 633 Coates Lane, King of Prussia - 04/03/20 09:34 AM

This sale had some challenges, multiple offers, a bad appraisal, change of lender, new appraisal, delays and Coronavirus pandemic.
But this lovely renovated town home in the heart of Heritage Manor in King of Prussia, with three beds, 2 1/2 baths is now closed.
Settlement felt very odd, all week we have been working towards it, with deed packages, final walk through, removing the lock box, picking up the deed package, dropping off the package, key and deposit check to the title company handling closing. All done without meeting face to face with anyone. Today, is usually a day of celebration, with clients, … (14 comments)

nick vandekar: We just held our first Virtual Open House - 03/28/20 11:14 AM
These are different times. And every day we are adapting as rules change. I decided to host a Virtual Open House at a listing as my clients really want the house promoted. Initially I was going to go to the house and do it with the husband. But, then we got a stay in place order and our State Association told us we must not be having any one on one meetings with clients as part of that stay in place order.
What to do? Well I made my client an admin on my Facebook Business Page, you can find it by … (52 comments)
