November is certainly not peak season for home sales, but there are a few things out there in just about every price range. Here are some of the new listings Cindy saw this week.
Cindy started her tour with a Narberth twin that went under agreement almost immediately. This 2016 sq ft, 3 bed/2.1 bath North Narberth twin, was listed at $529K, and seemed to go off the market as quick as it came on it. The whole-house renovation this property underwent underscores a real trend locally - where buyers are ready and willing to pay for a house that feels updated and "done". Buyers want amenities, like new kitchens and baths, and they're fine with paying a premium to avoid living through the construction project. See the photos and details at: 507 N. Essex Ave, Narberth, PA 19072.
In neighboring Penn Valley, this 4 bed/2.2 bath split-level is listed at $550K. It has 3380 sq ft of living space and sits on a .71 acre lot near Welsh Valley Middle School. The eat-in kitchen is large, but the big yard is probably the star of the show. The property has new AC and a two-car garage. See more at: 522 Sprague Rd, Penn Valley, PA 19072.
Both sides of a Haverford twin are for sale in this little neighborhood between Lancaster and Montgomery, near the Haverford School. This side is a 4 bed/1.1 bath with 1345 sq ft of living space. Listed at $385K, it has hardwood floors throughout, and a small yard with a shed out back. See the rest at: 533 Barrett Ave, Haverford, PA 19041.
The other side of the Haverford twin, also listed as a 1345 sq ft 4 bed/1.1 bath, is priced at $399,900.

A couple of late-season settlements and few showings kept Cindy pretty busy Halloween week, but she did manage to tour a few of the new listings and added a few more as November started.
