Main Line Pa Chester County Snow Day-Photo Friday



I love the snow. Especially sitting by the fireplace with a good book. Some snows in Chester County and the Main Line Pa area are not what you would call “pretty” snows, but this one was beautiful.

Daisy Bichon Puppy Snow Photo

No one can love an ice storm for example. Especially the ones that bring down wires and cause slippery road conditions but they can be beautiful to look at.

Daisy, who knows nothing of the practicalities, also loves the snow.

Who’s Daisy? The most adorable Bichon Puppy ever!

This past snow was a “pretty snow”, light, fluffy and playful just like Daisy who runs and plays in the snow like a two year old. So of course we were out before daybreak placing our first tracks in the snow. Well, actually the first tracks were bunnies, deer and other little creatures.

The combination of some mystical fading moonlight and a little daylight peeking through gave an eerie glow to our morning walk that I tried to capture.

Contact or call me, 610-889-5509, Judy Peterson, Realtor® Chester County Pa Prudential Fox and Roach Realtors. I also take pictures of houses for Home Sellers, Home Buyers and other Realtors in Chester County and the Philadelphia Main Line area. Ask about “Real Estate Photos by Judy Pete”.

Myths and Dragons of Home Selling, Once, Twice, Thrice

Chinese New Year Lion DragonOn our Chester County Main Line Pa Today Real Estate Blog we talk about tips for selling your home and home buying tips  in the Philadelphia Main Line and Chester County Pennsylvania area.  One of those myths and dragons of real estate is the idea that you only have to sell your home once, to the buyer.

Two Spring Festivals, Chinese New Year and Mardi Gras coincide with the arrival of our Spring real estate market. And like fire breathing Dragons, real estate myths can burn up a sale really fast if you’re not careful. Some real estate myths are harmless, like Chinese New Year Paper Dragons. Even so, I want my Sellers to get to settlement and celebrate like it’s  Mardi Gras!  And for that we may have to slay a few myths and dragons first. Read the rest of this entry »
