selling the main line: Just Listed - Beautiful Coddington View Town home - 03/28/19 02:18 PM
The cliche of real estate is Location, Location, Location. The original buyer of this Coddington View home not only took every upgrade they could, GE Stainless steel appliances, granite counters, iron baluster railings, upgraded hardwood floors, tiled bathrooms, 9' ceilings on the main level, trey ceiling in the main bedroom, ceiling fans, a premier sound system throughout the house, piping for central vacuum system. But they also took a premier end unit lot in the Coddington View community right at the highest point giving them the most wonderful views.
On top of that, it is right next to the community playground, with … (6 comments)

selling the main line: It's not for sale or is it? Chester County Antiques Show 2019 - 03/13/19 12:16 PM
What is your response when you are told something that catches your eye is not for sale?
As you know my background was antiques, my family were antiques dealers and we exhibited at many shows around the world. We have many stories about sales and things for sale.
Growing up my father had a good friend who was an antique dealer in Dorset, England. He always had stories about a colleague who had a shop across the road from him.
One went like this. The car was loaded with a drop front desk, lying on its back in the back part of a Volvo … (9 comments)

selling the main line: Did they mean what you thought you heard? - 02/26/19 12:29 PM
I have been reading a book by Celeste Headlee, We need to talk. Something I read in there, and I will paraphrase: Do not presume that because you are both speaking English you mean the same things with the words you choose and speak.
My wife is from the Netherlands, so automatically I know she is smarter than me because she speaks English very well, plus German, and some French, and of course Dutch. Unfortunately, many English speakers speak well, English and that is it, oh yes, LOUDER ENGLISH as well, because that will help them to be understood. My mother came … (22 comments)

This is an excellent post by Kathy Streib who knows her stuff and has helped a client or two get their home ready for sale. It makes such a difference when a home is staged well and does not always have to cost a fortune. I wish Kathy lived closer and I could have her come advise my clients.

selling the main line: 6 Things to do to sell your Tredyffrin Easttown home - 02/19/19 08:50 AM
We still have the threat of snow, and usually we get one big storm in March if past history can be relied upon. But we are seeing For Sale signs popping up all over the Tredyffrin Easttown school district. 
Because of the lack of inventory that the market has been suffering there is a pent up demand with many buyers ready to make offers. So if priced right and the homes are in good condition these For Sale signs are quickly followed by Sold signs.
So what do you need to do to prepare if you have waited till now to decide to … (1 comments)

selling the main line: Tredyffrin Easttown home buying is like finding a bed on the Camino! - 02/15/19 08:01 AM
I walked the Camino de Santiago last year from Lisbon to Santiago de Compostella,the Camino Portugues and then on to Muxia and Finisterra, a distance of 532 miles. What I love about the different Camino routes is the hostels that are along the route for Pilgrims, as the walkers are called because these are all ancient pilgrimage routes.
Each day you have an intention of where and how far you are going to walk. At the end of the day you hope you will be able to find a bed in a hostel, municipal or private, or resort to a hotel. The … (8 comments)

selling the main line: Love is in the air #2 - 02/05/19 05:30 AM
As I have thought back over transactions it is so hard to pick out any of my clients as being special. At the moment, the client I am with is special. They have my attention and I work diligently to make sure they are happy and understand the process of buying or selling.
However, a recent post I wrote helped me select the second of my Love is in the air posts. I realized with a recent call from a potential client I love to work with people who really need my help. They want to live in the Tredyffrin Easttown area but for … (14 comments)

selling the main line: 3 Reasons why your Main Line home might not be selling! - 08/01/18 06:15 AM
I showed a home yesterday to some investor clients who are looking for a home to flip. We thought we had found a good contender and made an appointment to show the home. We got rejected because the agent could not meet us at the time we asked for, not sure why the agent had to be there, as the home was priced in the low 600's.
Strike 1, make your home easy to show!
Then I get an email from the agent, he is away at the moment, can we do later in the afternoon when he was going to have an … (6 comments)

selling the main line: How long will it take to sell my home? - 07/23/18 09:18 AM
How long will it take to sell my Tredyffrin Easttown or Main Line home?" is an often asked question at a listing presentation. We can answer it, using all the flashy statistics at our fingers, days on market, price points etc. But, is it the right question to ask?
A better question might be "How quickly will you have my Tredyffrin Easttown or Main Line home on the market?"
There are many agents you can use, different brokers, teams, etc. How do you know which is the right one?
We know when we list a property exactly when it is going to go live … (2 comments)

selling the main line: It only takes one buyer! - 07/10/18 06:33 AM
It only takes one buyer!
We often use this expression when you have a listing that doesn't sell for one reason or another and everything is right with the price and the presentation. Our job then is to reassure the seller not to panic and understand that you need to find that buyer and sometimes it takes a little longer than others.
But, sometimes it works when you just list a property as well. Friday morning after posting coming soon and just listed blog posts, uploading photos to our website and syndicating the listing, video of the property on Facebook and YouTube we … (13 comments)

selling the main line: Is your Tredyffrin Easttown home ready to sell? - 06/21/18 06:55 AM
Not every home is ready to sell
When a customer calls to discuss listing their home there is a lot of preparatory work that is done before we meet for the first time. Many people believe real estate agents just turn up with a sign, put the home in the MLS, the multiple listing service, and collect a check a few weeks later.
But, first we do lots of research, every home is different, we need to research the development and the street to understand the local and hyper local market. We need to work out what the current competition is and what … (7 comments)

selling the main line: Cottonwood sale sets new record in Lockwood Chase - 06/14/18 06:06 AM
Our recent listing and sale at 822 Cottonwood Drive in Malvern PA 19355 set a new record for the development selling for $626,000. This sale resets values in Lockwood Chase and allows appraisers going forward a recent comparison sale to use for on going appraisals.
When we listed the home for sale we had conducted a competitive market analysis and the seller decided to list the home at $595,000. Their knowledge of past sales in Lockwood Chase made them believe this was a good listing point and this was proved correct by the response from the market. With the multiple avenues the house … (4 comments)

selling the main line: Another 5 star review for Nick Vandekar - 05/23/18 12:50 PM
We had the pleasure of helping another buyer complete the purchase of their Tredyffrin Easttown home last week.
Located just a few steps away from the Upper Main Line YMCA it is in a glorious quiet location, surrounded by million dollar homes. The original home has had additions and extensions added over time and sits on a flat piece of land. Currently it has 3 beds, but one room had been converted from two and will be changed back to a four bed home. 
We worked with these clients through a period where there is little to no inventory and homes are receiving … (4 comments)
