Homes in the Lower Merion School District are always in high demand, especially during the Spring real estate season. Well-priced homes are moving quickly now, and many are receiving multiple offers within a week of listing. Especially hot are homes in move-in condition with modern improvements, like new windows, central air and remodeled kitchens and baths. Prospective homeowners in the under $500K market are experiencing stiff competition from investors, with cash offers, looking to flip or rent out homes in the LMSD.
Every week on the Brokers Tour, Cindy Ridgway takes notes on some of the new listings in Narberth and Lower Merion. Here are some of the highlights from this week. Make sure to check back each week for the latest!
Cindy started her tour this week in Wynnewood. When you think of the Main Line, it's homes like this beautiful stone 5 bed/3.2 bath stone Tudor that immediately come to mind. Priced at $750K, it has a decent sized yard and and 2-room au-pair suite that could come in handy for the right buyers. See all the listing photos here: 12 Greenhill Lane, Wynnewood, PA 19096
There have been some really big homes for sale on Wooded Way this season; now this more modest-sized 3 bed/2 bath bungalow joins them. This 1434 sq ft home, on half an acre in Harriton Farms, pre-dates the new modern homes in the neighborhood. Listed at $625K, it offers the one-story living that many have trouble finding in Lower Merion. It has an unfinished attic and is apparently zoned for potential expansion, if you are looking to add on. See all the details at: 1311 Wooded Way, Bryn Mawr PA, 19010
Some homes with a Narberth address are not actually in the Borough of Narberth. That just a technical distinction, as these "Near-berth" properties are every bit a part of the tight-knit Narberth community, enjoying the walkable downtown, easy commute, and the events and activities Narberth is known for. This 5 bed/2.1 bath, 2770 sq ft stone colonial is listed at $695K. F\This one has a nice front porch, upstairs laundry, and a finished basement. See the rest at: 10 Iona Ave, Narberth, PA 19072
