A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor®-Part 27: Porches are Great Investments

Who doesn’t love a house with a porch? It just says: Welcome to our home! Here on the Main Line, many of our best neighborhoods boast porches of all shapes and sizes. This Main Line Realtor® loves a porch so much that I had one added to my house where none existed before. Now almost every night, I can greet my neighbors as they walk their dogs or their children (or both, in many cases) down my street.

A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor®-Part 26: Buyers’ Best Interests Come First

Not every day in the life of this Main Line Realtor® is a profitable one. Some days my job is to end a transaction part way through and that is not a happy day for anyone. Recently, a buying couple working with me found a Main Line home they liked for its size and renovated kitchen. I was concerned about the house because it was on a downhill slope with hints of water infiltration. I also felt that the home had been somewhat neglected during the time the sellers had rented it out right before putting it on the market.

A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor®-Part 25: The Importance of Trust

Main Line Real Estate is unique in so many ways, but the trust you need to buy a home here is the same as it is everywhere. As a Main Line Realtor®, I know I am lucky to be dealing with potential buyers and sellers who have already made a wise choice. They have found an area to call home that offers a tremendous number of benefits. They may have done their research or they may live here already or, in some cases, they have been directed here by people they trust who tell them how wonderful it is here!

A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor®-Part 24: Timing Can Be Everything for Main Line Home Buyers

This Main Line Realtor® has started working with 2 couples lately, both of whom are expecting in the next few months. These types of clients are favorites of real estate agents, many of whom see the approaching deadline as incentive for the buyers to find and close without a lot of extra work. That is not my mindset, as I am trying to be sure we do not rush into the wrong house for that reason! Better for the baby to be born in a nice rental than a dilapidated and mold-infested new house.

A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor®-Part 23: Main Line Information for Home Buyers

Time to dust off some of my basic Main Line Realtor® skills, such as teaching home buyers about an area they know nothing about. It happens that I have 2 new clients moving here from other places with no real knowledge of the Main Line area other than its good reputation. It was interesting to see how similarly the interview process went for each set of potential clients—although they were very dissimilar in their needs and wants. The first few minutes were spent telling me what they had heard from others about the Main Line area. Much of it was correct, such as “the schools are great, right?” Some of it was a bit wrong, such as “there are all these little towns all strung together on a train line to the city, right?” Both expressed concern about real estate taxes being high or not being assessed fairly. Those are legitimate complaints that will be hopefully rectified when the counties reassess taxes as they are planning to do, so that newer homes do not bear the brunt while older homes get a break. I explained that it does factor into our home searches, though, as the renovated older homes do tend to have lower taxes and can be a bargain as a result. I told them that what we want is the best schools but the lowest taxes—not always possible, but a goal. As always when I have out-of-town clients, I wish there was a good Main Line map to hand out,[...]

Main Line Realtor® Discusses Whether Rising Home Prices Should Delay Home Purchases

With the current home shortage, prices on homes for sale in Main Line Philadelphia communities are increasing. But do rising home prices mean you should wait to buy? A recent blog by Trulia noted that home affordability is at the highest point in forty years, with the exception of the housing crash in the early 2000s. According to the article, mortgage costs may increase as well, and these play a bigger role in overall affordability than actual home prices.
