Homes for Sale in Malvern Boro priced up to $500,000 Malvern Boro was recently listed as being the township that has grown the most in Chester County. So I wondered how many homes are available today for sale priced up to $500,000 and how many homes had sold so far this year. Malvern Boro is part of the Great Valley School District, and is located on the Paoli Thorndale Septa line giving easy access by rail in to Center city Philadelphia. It lies just a few minutes West of Paoli hospital and Paoli Town center. It is surrounded by Willistown Township and Charlestown Township but has it's own flavor and vibe with the revolutionary war site of Paoli Battlefield situated on Monument Ave.   Well currently there are 10 homes for sale priced from $153,825 to $484,900; there are 4 Pending sales...

The recent release of numbers from the census bureau show the fastest growing townships in Chester County between July 2012 to July 2013. Malvern Boro is a delightful place to live and the building of apartments on King Street may very well account for the large increase in population. It has a great small town/village atmosphere and is surrounded by Willistown Township and Charleston Township both of which carry the Malvern mailing address and are part of the Great Valley School district. It is also the site of The Paoli Massacre Monument in the Revolutionary War which became a rallying battle cry "Remember Paoli" But also its proximity to good transportation, easy access to the turnpike with an EazyPass only entrance/exit on Route 29, the Septa Thorndale Paoli line for center city Ph...

Congratulations to Dasa and Daniel on their first Main Line Real Estate purchase. We settled today using a VA loan on a town home, they selected after touring several Main Line single family homes and town homes. It is always satisfying to help Veterans with a purchase of a home especially in this case when it is the first home they buy along the Main Line. Their VA loan was provided through Gateway Funding, with a seller assist and lender credit, they were able to put very little money down to buy their first home. VA loans, are a wonderful benefit to those who have served with many different fees waived depending on disability status as well. If you have questions about buyer agency or finding a home along the Main Line give us a call and we will answer your questions and help you als...

East Whiteland Township real estate activity appears to be on the mend. Originally part of Whiteland Township which was founded in 1704, East Whiteland was formed when Whiteland Township was divided in 1732 and is located about 20 miles west of Philadelphia in Chester County PA. It has always been an important site historically due to its prime location between Lancaster and Philadelphia and it's proximity close to Valley Forge during the revolution. Many historic sites still remain including St Peter's Church, the General Warren Inn, the White Horse Tavern, and Wayne Tavern (soon to be replaced).  General Washington camped (and slept) in the township along Swedesford Rd - the oldest road in the state. Covering more than 7000 acres, East Whiteland Township today has a rich mixture of r...

Wow. September 11 is coming up fast.  I flipped the TV on tonite and found yet another documentary show about 9/11/01.  No matter how many times I see the photos, hear the recorded calls and hear the interviews of the family members, I'm awed by the whole thing. I didn't know anyone that was directly affected by the 9/11 attacks...meaning, I don't know anyone that died or anyone whose family member perished.  My husband's youngest brother and his (now) wife lived and worked in NYC though. On that morning, Andrew was scheduled to be on one of the planes that left Newark that morning...but was running late, so he boarded a flight an hour later.  When all of the planes were forced to land, he ended up in Ohio and rented a car with another passenger and drove back to NYC. That is definitely...

One of the things I love about our area is that there are so many things to do in Chester County and the surrounding area. Restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, sports, movies, nature, hiking just to name a few I recently came across Play-a-Round Golf in Malvern, PA. This is a unique concept that allows you to play golf and stay dry whatever the weather. I met with Steve Graves Sr. the President of Play-a-Round Golf this week and the video below gives a short overview of the facility. You can use it a sa driving range or play 38 different courses without having to travel. Play-a-Round Gold is having a Fall Harvest Charity Classic for which you can sign up right now. But whatever time you can enjoy a round of golf, wind, rain or shine without getting wet, hot or bothered. Give them a try....
