Why is it that nobody really likes splits. I do. I live in one. And have lived in one for 9 years. We have quite a few of them in our area, so I guess people like them to a degree, but I always feel, given half a chance they would move out of them in a heart beat. Splits are always price a little lower then if the same house with the same amenities were a colonial.
A very nice and large extended split just came on in our area for $715,000. It has a beautiful large 2 story kitchen family room extension, but its still a split. That's a lot of money for a split. I say that, because I'm "trained" to think that way.
When Nick and I came to the US 20 years ago and looked at houses on the Mainline, we looked at a few splits. I loved them! They're so American. So apple pie. So homey. So approachable. Its like jeans instead of a dressy suit or dress. I loved that you could send the kids down a few steps to the family room right off the kitchen, but yet they weren't on top of you. Our agent, we still have her as a friend, practically tried to talk us out of one. So we ended up in a colonial. By the way it really was our decision it wasn't hers. But after years in that colonial we now have owned a split for 9 yrs. Of course we got it for a good price, because splits are always that little bit better priced.
People tell me, why do you not like splits?
