A Day in the Life of a Main Line Realtor® – Part 18

Changes are Constant in the Real Estate Business I love my job as a Main Line Realtor®, but some weeks in the real estate business are a bit like spinning wheels in the snow. Two clients who had been looking for a very long time with limited success finally found what they were looking for and went under agreement to buy; this Main Line Realtor® was very happy for them. In both cases, the clients then elected to terminate the deal, and being an agent means you are responsible for doing what the client wants you to do in the best way possible. Hopefully soon my clients will find just the right place.

Walkability is Key to Buyers Seeking Homes for Sale in Main Line Communities

The trend has been building, and according to a recent study by the National Association of Realtors®, more and more of the buyers across the country, including those looking for homes for sale in Main Line communities like Wayne and Bryn Mawr, place a high value on walkability. Close, walkable access to community features and even to workplaces has become a very popular home feature. Of 3000 residents surveyed, over 70% agreed that walkability, closeness to highways, and short commutes were important factors in their choice of home.

What is a Foot Traffic Indicator? I have always heard that the Spring market for Main Line real estate starts after the Super Bowl.  This Main Line Realtor® is unsure about that this year, for 2 reasons: 1) the home team is in the Super Bowl this year and 2) I am already seeing a lot of activity. Folks have waited long enough to see the Eagles triumph and buyers have waited much too long for some choices in Main Line homes to buy after this inventory shortage.

Families Impact Homebuying Decisions in Main Line Real Estate More than You Might Think

When in the market for Main Line real estate, do you choose your new home, or do the children decide? You do, of course, however according to a new report by Bank of America, family does play a large role in the types of homes that home buyers eventually choose. In fact, the study reports that 63% of homebuyers say that their children play a role in the type of home that is purchased. Among first time buyers, the percentage goes up to 74%.

It’s quiet on the Main Line this time of year.  Holidays take up most people’s time and attention and the cold weather makes house showings less desirable. Also many fewer houses are on the market. That is tough on my Main Line buyers who have been looking for a while and would really like to find something. I have one first-time buyer who seems to be leaning toward new construction, a market that, unfortunately for her, slows quite a bit in the winter months.

A Day in the life of a Main Line Realtor® – Part 15

It is almost closing day for my Main Line sellers, and most of the stress and drama is over for this Main Line Realtor®, although perhaps not really for the sellers.  Anytime you are closing the “family home” to downsize, the process is somewhat sad. Many memories are associated with “things” in a home, so having to disperse those things can be very tough on folks. My sellers did an excellent job of finding good homes for their things, I thought.  A homeless shelter took many and they sold a lot on Facebook yard sale pages.  I thought it was interesting how little difference it makes if the furniture is antique or of fairly high quality—there seems to be little market for this nice older furniture anymore.
