tredyffrin easttown realtor: 5 Star review for Nick Vandekar - 04/28/20 09:05 AM
I shared recently how one of my clients asked me to step in when they had made the mistake to use another broker and the home although it sold failed to appraise. On reviewing everything it didn't make sense as the comps were defintiely there for the home.
Anyway, we re-listed the home for a higher price, quickly obtained an offer, navigated our way through inspections, negotiations and the second appraisal for a higher price and settled last week. 
 
Today, my clients posted the following review of me.
 
"Our experience with Nick has been great! He is very accessible, knowledgeable and very communicative and … (18 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: Are you known for your value or your price? - 02/03/20 05:43 AM
What makes us different to any other agent? I have been thinking about this a lot in the last week. People who have used our services before return over and over. I have clients I have represented multiple times in numerous transactions because they know what I bring to the table.
When I speak with someone who hasn't used me before, it is a different situation. Maybe someone referred me to them or they found me online, but where they are coming from is somewhere different to past clients. Often they are only interested in how high can I price my home, and what … (30 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: What is my The Highlands, Berwyn PA home worth? - 11/21/19 12:28 PM
The Highlands Berwyn PA
 
Located just off Lancaster Avenue, almost directly opposite Nectar Restaurant in Berwyn, is The Highlands. This 30 year old community of town homes on Manchester Court, some with main floor master suites sits quietly minding its own business. Many drive past not even aware of its presence. As such it is a development that does not have a lot of traffic and is highly desirable to those buyers in the know.
Located behind a stone wall, it is set on a circular drive Manchester Court which circles the development with most homes on the inside of the loop. There … (6 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: Make Your Offer HEFTY HEFTY HEFTY, NOT Wimpy Wimpy Wimpy! - 11/21/19 08:17 AM
This is an excellent post by Candice A. Donofrio from AZ about making offers that are attractive to a seller. Everything in this post is so true that I had to repost it for any Tredyffrin Easttown or Main Line buyers who are not being successful with their purchase offers.
If a house is not selling it is often said it is the price, lower the price and it will sell. Likewise, if your offers are not being accepted, it may be the price, but it also may be the terms you are inserting into the contract. Think like a seller, what is goingto … (6 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: Tredyffrin Easttown Sellers don't be an ostrich! - 10/30/19 11:01 AM
Why be an ostrich?
As a Tredyffrin Easttown or Main Line seller it is easy to ignore an issue in your home before you list it for sale. So you are in control of the process and the cost I suggest in many istances to sellers to have a home inspection before listing to identify any major issues and get them fixed before listing .
A home inspection report issue will always cost more than fixing an item before hand due to being on a deadline and having someone else, a buyer,  demand how it is repaired and sometimes demand you need to replace rather … (8 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: Coming soon! Old Forge Crossing Condo for sale November 1st - 10/19/19 09:32 AM
A past client called out of the blue a couple of weeks ago. What was the value of their condo which they were renting to a tenant? They were interested in selling and the tenant might be interested in buying and could I handle the sale and the paperwork?
It turned out the tenant is not ready yet to purchase. So, they decided to put the unit up for sale. The tenant said it will be able to be shown during the last month of his tenancy.
So November 1st 463 Old Forge Crossing, Devon, PA 19333 will be available for … (5 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society - 09/20/19 08:43 AM
Having a resource like the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society provides a bridge to the past. This 501(c) (3) Not for profit corporation preserves and shares our local history. 
The society hosts public meetings that feature presentations by qualified speakers on a wide variety of subjects. They publish the Tredyffrin Easttown History Quarterly a richly illustrated local history publication provided to members by mail and available for purchase at selected local distributors like Easttown Library. But, probably the gem is the comprehensive website, www.TEHistory.org, this contains a searchable online archive of the History Quarterly and the society's collection of images, as well as in depth … (7 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: There is a lot of talk - 09/12/19 08:34 AM
In our 24 hour a day news cycle there is a lot of talk about just about everything. I learnt a long time ago to limit what I listen to and who I listen to as well. Making sure I read both sides of a story.
There is a lot of talk about recession, inverted yield curves, past history, etc. But there is little talk about how things are also different as well. History says that over a period of time there are going to be adjustments. Be that in the stock market, real estate or just about any other market you … (48 comments)

tredyffrin easttown realtor: 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)
