The Perils of the Same Day Sell and Buy

I recently closed four deals involving 2 sets of clients—each couple sold their existing home and bought a new one on the same day. You would think that is the norm in my business here on the Main Line, but there are often reasons why this does not happen.

Main Line Realtor Wears Many Hats

A Main Line Realtor®, at least a good one, has to wear many hats. It is truly a disparate bevy of skills that makes this job go well.

A Main Line Agent talks about the Perils of being Addicted to Zillow

Almost 100% of this Main Line Real Estate Agent’s clients admit to using Zillow. If not exclusively, then occasionally.

Timing Your Purchase

The topic of the day is the timing on the purchase. The sellers want a very delayed closing so they can finish the renovations on their new home. My buyers are concerned about the mortgage rates going up (as well they should be). They have done a good job of contacting 2 lenders to see what their loan options are but neither one will guarantee a rate for more than 60 days
