Chester County Main Line Home Buyers, Sellers Disconnect Financing The Fantasy



Home Ownership Dreams Fail To Pricing Fantasy

I spend my days and sometimes nights helping home buyers and home sellers with the Fantasy Housepurchase and sale of real estate.  Even though we try to make it as easy and fun as possible, it’s work for everyone, the Buyers, their Buyer Agents, Sellers and the Listing Agent. I often remind my Seller clients that every offer to purchase is a compliment paid to the home Seller by the Buyers. Of all the homes on the market, the buyer chose yours!

Are Sellers Unrealistic Prices Making It Harder For Buyers to Buy?

Yes, in my experience and the experience of my Buyers, unrealistic prices are making it harder for buyers to buy.

Today’s Better Educated Home Buyers

The Consumers Guide To The Agreement of Sale that I provide free as a service to all of my Buyer Agent Clients, is a 35 page guide that gives a thorough review of each of the Agreement of Sale Clauses and choices about Home Inspection, Financing, inclusions, exclusions and the Sellers Disclosure Form that’s part of structuring an offer to purchase, or there should be.

It’s a simple question. Deceptively simple. But almost always asked by First Time Home Buyers here in Chester County, Delaware County and Montgomery County.First Time Buyers Ask And truth be known, there’s many a tale to tell.

Tredyffrin PA – Puzzled By The Real Estate Market



Tredyffrin, Chester County Pennsylvania Real Estate Market Report

We’re puzzled in Tredyffrin Township Chester County.

From what I hear at my Open Houses, you’re puzzled about our real estate market and how it compares to other real estate markets in the news and around the country.

Tredyffrin Township, like much of the Philadelphia Suburban Real Estate Market, just doesn’t quite fit the popular real estate market mold that’s frequently commented on in the news these days. Fortunately for us, we haven’t experienced the carnage of other real estate markets.

Confidence Crises or Reality Crises?

So, we’re Waiting and Waiting  – Who knows what we’re waiting for?
