In the second half of February, the Lower Merion/Narberth market seems to have a little less inventory than the same time last year, but there are certainly homes to be had. A number of Penn Valley homes were among the recently listed, including the first six listed here in Cindy's tour. Check out these and a few others Cindy toured, and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to see something.
The Penn Valley market has quite a few new listings this month, and Cindy started off her tour with this Penn Valley 6 bed/5.2 bath beauty. The 3-story colonial has 5235 sq ft inside, and sits on almost 3/4 of an acre near Penn Valley Elementary. For the $1.1M list price the home delivers a list of upgrades and features, including a two car garage with a second floor just begging to be used for an office or studio.
