tredyffrin easttown real estate: 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 … (11 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Impossible or I'm possible? - 04/27/20 11:39 AM
Often how you look at a problem will lead you to the answer. After Roger Bannister ran a mile in under 4 minutes many others now felt it could be done and achieved similar results.
 
If we believe someone like ourselves can achieve something we want to attain, we will be able in our minds to overcome all the objections. How many of you who are brokers know people who outsell others simply because they believe it can be done and you are surprised by those who you think will be wonderful but never acheive the results you expect. It is all mental.

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Another 5 star Review for Nick Vandekar - 09/12/19 08:01 AM
Another 5 Star Review for Nick Vandekar
We recently sold the house at 407 Old State Road, Berwyn, PA 19312, it was a challenging sale as our sellers had moved out of town well before settlement and some issues arose at the buyers walk through. The air conditioning unit had frozen. This required a service call and of course a delay to settlement as the unit had to thaw before it could be repaired. 
The buyers, unfortunately took the opportunity to try and negotiate a very large discount, much more than a new air conditioning unit would cost even, and whilst they continually reduced their … (5 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Are you listening? Tuning out the distractions! - 03/25/19 07:52 AM
No, this is not about listening to people and understanding what they are saying, although it could be. What I am talking about is are you mindful of all the sounds around you?
As I was walking yesterday I realized several times how quiet it was, just the breath of a wind through the trees and there really was very little wind. The occasional sound of bird song or the flap of a wing beat. 
When we are showing homes, people often look at room sizes, views and if the house is close to a major road or train line they mention if the home … (34 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. But the next bestt hing is to re-post her blogs which are filled with great suggestions for anyone getting ready to meet with a stager.

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Are you walking today, how far? - 02/09/19 04:21 AM
Today I have woken to find the lovely spring/summer temperatures have dropped. My hiking group has a 10 mile hike planned today down on the Pennsylvania/Delaware state line. I have been promised that it is very scenic and well worth the trip. It is about an hour away, and I have not been on a hike this long since I finished my camino in October. I am looking forward to it.
I am taking my backpack, along with some additional layers, rain jacket and poncho although I don't think I will need those other than as a windbreak. But, it also allows … (21 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Not every new house gets finished on time! - 02/08/19 08:36 AM
Home buyers on and around the Main Line love to purchase new construction homes for a lot of reasons. You get to choose all the finishes, no one has used or lived in the house and everything is obviously new and clean. Everyone is new to the area and making friends in a new development can be a little easier.
But what often gets forgotten is that builders contracts often allow for pushing settlement back due to weather, extreme cold or rain. Any of these can hold construction or finishing up and delay closing.
Many buyers also forget, if they have a mortgage, … (4 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Have Bump Keys Arrived In Your Area? - 02/04/19 11:10 AM
Tredyffrin Easttown Homeowners should read this article below about home security before you become a victim!
I spoke with our Local Tredyffrin police department and whilst these are not being used currently to their knowledge.  The fact they are being used with success in Washington DC, and they have heard reports of them being used in and around Philadelphia means as they said it won't be long before they are used everywhere.
So, changing your locks as Jay Markanich recommends to a Medeco lock may be worthwhile. Whilst we usually recommend to new homeowners to change their locks in future our recommendation will be to … (10 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Why isn't your T/E or Main Line home selling? - 01/09/19 08:39 AM
Why isn't your home selling? How to get to SOLD!
Real estate is hot, it is a sellers market, we have all heard the reports, there is a lack of inventory and buyers are desperate to find homes. So why isn't your Tredyffrin Easttown, T/E, or Main Line home selling in this market?
As full time Tredyffrin Easttown and Main Line Realtors we have seen a change in the market since the summer months. This change happened as we entered June and July. And whilst historically this usually happens, it did not really pick up when September came as it did in the past.

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Moving to Tredyffrin Easttown - 01/04/19 11:56 AM
Moving to Tredyffrin Easttown or T/E as locals call it.
We moved to this area almost 30 years ago and what attracted us was the school district. With three young boys we were looking for somewhere that we felt would provide a good education. Whilst that is a subjective thing to measure, the last few years have seen Niche rank Tredyffrin Easttown School District highly.
There are some things to understand about Tredyffrin Easttown School District. It is made up from two different townships, Tredyffrin Township, and Easttown Township who combined many years ago to provide a better level of education to the children between … (4 comments)

tredyffrin easttown real estate: Buying a fixer upper. That is way beyond my skill level! - 01/03/19 08:23 AM
Buying a fixer upper.
With all the shows on TV showing homes being flipped for cash, many buyers when they first start looking for homes are asking for fixer uppers. I mean how hard can it be with all these shows on TV and everyone making money. Forget about the drama in those shows of the problems unearthed during rehab, the delays incurred waiting for permits and the fact the show is paying the wages of those featured, so those costs are not included. 
Frankly, for Main Line and Tredyffrin Easttown home buyers, buying a fixer upper can be a good option. Yes, … (12 comments)
