If you’re selling your home, your real estate agent has likely advised you to stage your home to sell. But why exactly do people stage homes to sell? Some people go to great lengths to stage their home too, even going so far as moving possessions into storage units or renting furnishings!If your home is already nicely decorated, why should you go to the added trouble of “staging” it? There are many good reasons to stage your home to sell.1. Staging Makes Your Home Appear More SpaciousHaving lived in your home for a number of years, you probably haven’t noticed how many things you’ve accumulated. When you stage your home to sell, these things get put away out of sight. This tends to clear tabletops, open up floor space and generally make your home look larger. Homebuyers will see the spa...

An estate sale is the sale of the property owned by a person after a person dies. This sale may include real property, such as a home, and personal property, such as the home’s contents.There are two ways to buy property through an estate sale. One way is to buy it from the person who inherited the property. The other way is to buy it from the estate through the executor of the estate. The executor is the person with the legal authority to dispose of the estate’s assets according to the last will and testament of the person who died.The executor of the estate may be working with the state authorities in a probate court if the estate is in probate. Probate is an action by law that occurs automatically if the person died without leaving a will. Probate legal proceedings may also happen if...

5 Things You Need to Know About Popcorn Ceilings If you’ve ever watched a home improvement show, the first thing said when the host walks into an older home is almost always “Popcorn ceilings - we’ll have to remove those”. Why does everyone assume popcorn ceilings must go? And what if you chose to leave them? What can be done with them? With some advice from a local painting and renovations contractor, we dive into this interesting topic! What is a Popcorn Ceiling?Popcorn ceiling is a kind of textured finish for ceilings. With a closer resemblance to cottage cheese than popcorn, this ceiling treatment began appearing in the middle of the 20th century. The technique is accomplished by spraying on a texture to the ceiling.

This single family home in Ardmore, Montgomery County has been completely renovated and updated throughout. The house is located in the desirable Lower Merion School District. The real estate investor that owns the property and managed the renovation project was a firm believer in the benefits of staging a vacant property. By choosing furniture and accessories that are consistent with the price of the home and the demographics of the targeted buyer, you can see what a difference staging makes in the appearance of this house. It goes from cold and uninviting to warm and welcoming! Smart investors don't underestimate the value staging brings to the selling process.                                                                                                                              ...

Having grown up on the Main Line, it saddens me to think that developers want to tear down a Victorian home to build no less than 37 condos on a 1 acre lot.  Considering the need for a minimim of 1 car parking per unit, doing some quick math means that we all know there will be a minimum of 37 more cars in that dense little area.  Add in the fact that many of those units will have two cars, means about 10-20 additional car spaces will need to be found on-street.  Oh yeah, add any friends, or family visitors, and that could add 10-30 more cars a day.  So one Victoris can be modified, but how would Ardmore adapt to up to 90 more cars on its already congested roads??? Posted on the 5th of September, 2007 in the Main Line Times:"Zoning board to allow opponents their say about 130 Cricket Av...

As quoted from the Main Line Times:"Affordable housing means more than the sale price on a home. It is a reflection of the kind of community we wish to have in Lower Merion. Successful affordable housing initiatives must be rooted in successful home ownership. To get there, several factors must be considered. Without any one of them, chances for long-term home ownership in Lower Merion Township evaporate. South Ardmore and Bryn Mawr have been targeted as locations for prime investment opportunities, and the result is that housing stock pricing has escalated, and home ownership opportunities have decreased dramatically. My community has become largely rental-based. Most of the people I grew up with have since moved away, unable to sustain the income needed to live here."To read the rest ...

As quoted from the Main Line Times:"When Lower Merion Township tightened requirements in one of its multi-family residential zones last December, the goal was to discourage, albeit belatedly, new development projects out of scale and out of character with their small, older neighborhoods.But, as one Ardmore neighborhood is learning, there's more than one way to keep the recent condo trend running in the township.A new development application, scheduled to go before Lower Merion's zoning hearing board May 10, would use a different provision of the zoning code to bring a 37-unit, three-story condominium building to the town's Cricket Avenue.A fairly new development partnership, SWL and Associates LLC, whose principals are Craig Snider and Mark Weiss, is seeking a special exception under a...
