nick vandekar team: Is this the right time to buy for you? - 03/27/09 03:00 AM
There is a lot of comments by real estate agents that this is the time to buy but is that right for you? Really it all depends on your situation and whilst prices have dropped, and interest rates are at historic lows if you don't have some funds saved and a good credit score it is not the right time.
Even FHA loans require some money 3.5% as your share of the purchase and whilst you can ask for a sellers assist for closing costs not all sellers in this market can give it to you. So you do need some funds … (0 comments)

nick vandekar team: Location, Location, Curb Appeal! - 03/23/09 11:29 PM
You know what they say in real estate: Location, Location, Location. Surely after location it is curb appeal though, so may be the saying should be Location, Location, Curb appeal.
How many of you have not even wanted to get out the car, because the house looked so UN-appealing just from the curb?
So now that Spring is finally coming.... get out there and do something about your yard and the exterior of the house. My first love is gardening, so to me it is less of a chore than for some, but there are some easy guidelines to go by.
I always … (0 comments)

nick vandekar team: Home improvement Industry to be Overhauled! - 03/14/09 08:19 AM
I am indebted this week to John Abbbott of Abbott Law Offices in Berwyn who has written a follow up article for me on the new contractor registration law.
In just a few weeks the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania will begin registering over 80,000 home improvement contractors.  This is just the first of a two-phase law that was passed in October 2008 and goes into effect this July 1st.
The registration phase is being handled by the Attorney General's Office so you know it is important.  All contractors must apply (most likely thru a web site) in order to obtain a registration number.  The key … (2 comments)

nick vandekar team: 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)

nick vandekar team: Whoa before you use that contractor! - 02/11/09 03:49 AM

 
In about five months you will be able to check out that contractor you are going to allow loose in or on your home. The new PA Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act of 2008 will go into effect. It will apply to just about any contractor doing work inside or outside a residence. All contractors will have to register with the State and provide personal and company information to obtain a state registration number. Their contracts with consumers will have to contain certain provisions relative to insurance coverage amounts, amount of any deposit, specific address of the contractor, billing procedures … (4 comments)

nick vandekar team: Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships Real Estate market recent stats - 02/11/09 03:00 AM
Last week we held a seminar at Easttown Library at which we covered some recent market stats for Tredyffrin and Easttown Township homes.
There are currently 140 homes on the market priced between $350,000 and $1.5 million. Average price of these listings is $691,238. The average days on market to sell a home last month were 106. That means that of all the homes sold in January the average time it took was 106 days. there are currently about 32 homes selling a month in the two townships so it will take about 4 months to sell the current inventory if … (0 comments)

nick vandekar team: Is the stimulus bill going to revive real estate? - 02/10/09 07:15 AM
Whilst we hear all the talk from Congress that they understand real estate needs to lead the way for jolting the economy I wonder if tax credits and hand outs are going to do the job. we currently have historic low interest rates that should be encouraging buyers to act and not wait but we are seeing buyers just looking and taking no action to buy inventory that sellers are desperate to sell.
Also how fair are the credits, if you have recently lost a job and need to sell a home are you going to be able to buy something … (3 comments)

nick vandekar team: 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)
