Every week, Cindy tours new listings in and around the Lower Merion School District, and shares her notes here. There are fewer new listings at this point in the Spring market, as June is typically known more for closings than opens. But there are still homes hitting the market each week, and Cindy took buyers out to see a few of them this weekend. If you have any questions about these or anything real estate-related in Lower Merion and Narberth, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
