Storage Places Near Lansdale, PADuring a home staging consultation with Six Twenty Designs, we'll discuss several ways to improve the look of your home. One of the biggest improvements you can make is to de-clutter. And I'm not just talking about the accessories on your bookshelves or photos on the wall. I mean all closets and storage spaces as well. Buyers will open up all of your closets and go in the basement/attic to see how much storage space you have. And while you may not have a lot (and that's one of the main reasons you're moving), you can't leave a buyer with  that image. A stuffed closet and basement to a buyer means they won't have enough space to store their things. That's why it's important to clean out all of your storage areas. For your closet, pack up all of your off se...

 A home can mean many different things to people, but I think we can all agree that a good home provides security, privacy, adequate space, and comfort.  A good home is not a money pit or leaves you cash-strapped at the end of every month.  A good home is located where you want to be: whether you want a short commute to work, good schools for your children to attend, near other family or friends, access to amenities such as parks, restaurants, shopping, or nightlife.  Often taken for granted, a good home becomes a cornerstone of a happy life. In 2011, we met a family who is truly an inspiration – a model of hope and unconditional love.  Four generations looking to move into one house together so they could care for one another.  The grandmother had dementia, the mother was a single work...

  There are many ways to sell a house: listing it with a Realtor, for sale by owner, the “We Buy Houses” quick sale businesses, real estate auctions, find a friend or relative willing to buy it.... When it comes to selling, there is no magic pill.  Time and again, no one is going to pay more than market value for your home but you can be sure, many people will gladly take a home off your hands if they can get it for well below market value. As a seller, it is critical to know the true market value for your home so 1) you don’t end up sitting on it forever waiting for it to sell at an unrealistic price and 2) so you don’t “give it away” by selling it for significantly less than it is worth.  Buyers need to be equally as careful so they do not overpay for a home. Traditionally, the best w...

The real estate market is showing signs of heating up, slowly.  The number of showings on properties actively listed for sale is increasing, as well as phone and internet requests for more information on homes in the area.  Also, a greater number of people are preparing for to buy (meeting with mortgage professional).  In talking with other local agents and mortgage brokers, the pulse of the market was unanimously, “getting warmer” and “picking up”.  Offers are being generated, and on occasion, competing offers are being presented.  Can spring be in the air early this year?  The housing climate is surely ready.  There are fewer homes for sale now than this time last year, so the supply and demand see-saw looks a little different.  Buyers still have a healthy supply of homes to browse, b...

LANSDALE REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE - DECEMBER   Units Sold - with relatively few transactions, there was an increase in total units sold in December, with 31 sold this month in Lansdale. This month's total units sold was lower than at this time last year, a decrease from December 2010.   Active Inventory - The total number of homes available this month is 264 units, which is similar compared to a year ago. This month's total of 264 is lower than the previous month's total supply of available inventory of 298, a decrease of 11%. Decrease could be attributed to seller's removing their properties from the market for the holidays.   Median Sale Price - Last December, the median sale price for Lansdale homes was $244,250. This December, the median sale price was $240,000, a decrease of 2% or...

Stonegate Home Sale Activity for 2011, Lansdale PA In 2011, 10 homes sold in Stonegate with prices ranging from $215,000 to $279,900.  Taking seller assists into account, the highest net to a seller was $271,900.  Two homes sold were short sales and fetched the lowest selling prices at $215,000 and $230,000.  Only one property was up for sale in 2011 and subsequently withdrawn from the market.  The wide range in prices really exemplify how Stonegate continues to be a popular neighborhood with home buyers.  The homes are all wonderfully laid out 3 BR/2.5 BA townhomes with full basements (many being walkout basements) and 1-car garages.  Close to Merck's West Point and North Wales facilities and the Septa's R-5 regional rail connecting Doylestown to center city Philadelphia, Stonegate is ...
