The U.S. Open is upon us ! It is certainly exciting to see a major sporting event come to our very own Merion Golf Club. However, with all the excitement and an influx of spectators for the sport, Haverford Township has issued a notice to it's residents about road closures that will effect local traffic patterns.

What Buyers Want: 
It finally feels like spring, and according to MSN.com one of the best  improvements you can make to your home (the kind of improvement that will entice a potential buyer) is central air. 
MSN polled recent buyers and found the common themes that the buyers valued when they saw a home.The top draws that they mentioned were central air, new kitchen appliances, walk-in closet and a master bedroom. Agreeing with MSN, CBS News also counted air conditioning and walk-in closets as their top two most important features followed closely by cable/internet readiness.

5 Inexpensive ways to improve the chances of selling your home.

5 Inexpensive ways to improve the chances of selling your home.


1.) Curb Appeal : Clean up the outside of your home with a good power washing. You do not have to spend and arm and a leg to re-paint. Consider adding some flowering plants on your porch (if you have one). Break out the elbow grease and the windex ! Clean up your windows. A lot of people appreciate natural light in their home and grimey windows will block it out, making a room seem darker. 
2.)  De-personalize a little :  While you may love that collection of ceramic roosters in your kitchen, a potential buyer may not be such a fan. The goal here is to appeal to the buyers ability to make your old house their future home....

Why hire a Real Estate Agent?

Mon, Mar 19th 2012 2:04 pm by Tyler Wagner Haverford delaware PA Real Estate

"Why should we hire a real estate agent?"

I am often asked this question by many potential clients. If buying or selling a home through the Internet or through regular marketing was easy, I believe everyone would do it on their own. Some have navigated the waters without representation of an agent and have survived, but many do not succeed. Many times, a real estate agent has had to come in to the process to clean things up.
