Buying a home in Havertown/Haverford Township, Hershey's Mill, or any other western suburb of Philadelphia is a smart decision today for a number of reasons. At the top of the list are our stable home values. Although like most, we experienced some decline during the recent past recession, our market fared well in comparison to the rest of the nation. The area’s diversity of industry and its central location kept us somewhat protected from the national economic downturn.
For example, as a homebuyer looking to the future of Haverford Township, you’ll be excited to learn that new developments are always underway here. Most recently, these include 200 acres at Haverford Reserve with dedicated park, hiking trails and playing fields, several newer age-targeted and 55+ age-restricted communities, the new Havertown YMCA and new Quarry Shopping Center housing a large supermarket and several big-box stores.
Because our agents know their market areas so well, we each have a strong sense of home values and can quickly advise you. Although the price you pay is your decision, with our guidance and superior negotiating skills, you have an outstanding advantage in getting the home you love at a price you can afford.
We encourage you to develop a relationship with a lender of your choice early on. Getting pre-approved before beginning your home search ensures you won’t have trouble financing once you find the home you love. Your Wagner agent can provide you a list of lenders who have proved successful with our previous buyers by providing good service and delivering on the competitive terms they promised.
This is a biggie! Because our area has so many homes that are 50 to 100+ years old, issues almost always arise during the inspection. Fortunately, we have an abundance of experience resolving these issues.
Your Wagner agent not only attends the home inspection with you but also prepares you for what issues to expect and how to resolve them quickly and effectively. Plus, we provide you our list of reliable local tradesmen who do quality work at fair prices.
Although you have your choice of title companies, we’re affiliated with CU Settlement Services, which provides excellent closing services. CU Settlement Services provides preliminary Closing Disclosures in accordance with the new TRID and RESPA Regulations that informs us prior to closing exactly how much money you need. This enables us to coordinate with your mortgage company for a smooth closing-table experience.
Many agents with other real estate offices give up quickly when a transaction starts to look difficult — but not Wagner agents. Why? Because we have the support of an outstanding Conveyancing Department whose manager is diligent in pushing seemingly impossible transactions through to closing. And he’s been conquering these challenges for us for the last 35 years!
So, if you’re thinking of buying a home, email us or call us at (610) 446-2300 for immediate professional assistance. Each of our knowledgeable agents is supported by over 125 years of combined real estate management experience. And that simply can’t be topped. Call us today to get started!
