nick vandekar real estate: Philadelphia Main Line Luxury Market Report - 04/21/17 11:00 AM

We just released our most recent 
Philadelphia Area Luxury Property Report
Click the link above for the full report, but here are some highlights. Active inventory is down 2% compared to last year which is good for this part of the market which has been suffering from a glut of listings. Probably the only part of the market which has been rich in listings for a while.
This being said however, new listings are down by about 6% compared to last year, showing owners have some wariness about listing their properties because of the high number of listings currently on the market.
Sales of these luxury … (8 comments)

nick vandekar real estate: Blogging is my prospecting - 04/14/17 08:00 AM
Blogging is my prospecting
Along time ago I read a post or article where Teresa Boardman was interviewed. She being then known for her blogging about St Paul Real Estate and ahead of the curve, the reason for the interview, expressed how blogging was for her, prospecting. 
I hate cold calling, I am not a great fan of phone calls full stop. So this resonated with me, I thought I can do that. So my blogging began. I got on Active Rain back in 2007. Of course I was not great stsarting out the gate. Over time I dropped off as I got … (14 comments)

nick vandekar real estate: The Radnor Hunt - 10/03/11 07:43 AM
Saturday, I stopped by at the start of Chester County Day and saw the Radnor Hunt leaving at the satrt of their day, something that was traditional, but with the constant infilling happens less today than before, however, The Radnor Hunt still hunts during the season 3-4 days a week.

The hounds wait for the call, 31 in all, puppies and older dogs.

At the sound of the horn, hounds started baying and the excitement rose in the pack.

Many people turned out to see the hunt off and tour the house, which sits on 79 acres and … (0 comments)

nick vandekar real estate: Bringing your new floorplan to life - 04/12/11 01:10 AM

You know the old saying, "measure twice, cut once?"  Taking that extra step to make sure your calculations are just right can mean the difference between excitement and disappointment on the day of new furniture delivery.
Floor plans to scale are a great "first measure".  But the best way to make sure you've checked twice is achieved with the use of a little painter's tape!  Taking the dimensions of a piece of furniture and "taping" them out on the floor where you're thinking about placing your new furniture is a great way to bring your floor plan to life!  This … (0 comments)

nick vandekar real estate: Tredyffrin Easttown School District Real Estate market steady! - 08/02/10 05:17 AM
The 2010 real estate market in Tredyffrin Easttown School District appears steady. Looking at sales of homes priced above $400,000 since the beginning of the year, we see sales as lackluster in the winter months of January and February, 18 and 16 homes selling respectively, 17 more settled in March, whether this was the winter blahs or the economy it is hard to tell, snow storms definitely affected showings and Open Houses, but so did the predictions and feelings about the economy. Sales were definitely down on previous years, and the extended tax credit did not seem to be having an effect … (0 comments)

nick vandekar real estate: Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships Real Estate market recent stats - 02/11/09 03:00 AM

nick vandekar real estate: Chesterbrook, PA sales information - 01/19/09 05:21 AM

Thirty homes are available in Chesterbrook for sale right now, all are apartments or townhomes. Last year, 2008, just over one hundred homes sold in Chesterbrook from 1 bed room apartments to single family homes. Only two of the sales were single family homes both four bedroom homes in the Green Hills section of Chesterbrook; all the other homes were townhouses or apartments.
 Trying to see a pattern of sales one notices they split up into several price points for specific types of homes, although location, updating to bathrooms, kitchens and having a garage does make a difference obviously.
