Loan Term Reduction Refinance in Drexel Hill, PA When it comes to effective retirement planning, one of the best moves most people can make it ensuring that they are not burdened with debt at a time in life when income decreases.  For many home owners, thismeans trying to get rid of their mortgage payment by the time they hit retirement age so they can stop working and still enjoy a level of cash flow that allows a safe, happy, andcomfortable lifestyle.With that reason in mind, many home owners opt to refinance their mortgage into a 15 year loan rather than the standard 30 year loan.  The benefit is two-fold, as a 15 year loan saves a borrower a ton on interest simply with the shorter term, but on top of that, a 15 year mortgage interest rate can be substantially lower than a 30 year ra...

As it gears up for its active summer season, Collen Brook Farm is holding its annual Spring Festival: Farm Life at Collen Brook  this Sunday from 1:00 - 4:00. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the current home including many additions was started in 1710. The farm was founded on 150 acres in 1692 and subsequently grew to over 1000 acres in Delaware County before much of the land was sold off for development in the 1930's - 1950's. Inhabited by direct descendants for almost 300 years, Upper Darby Township acquired the home in 1989. Today the home is opened as a museum by the Upper Darby Historical Society from May through October. The property is a great example of an 18th century farmhouse and retains many of its original features. On Sunday, Collen Brook Farm will be ...

Welcome to the Anderson Avenue station of the SEPTA 101 Trolley in Drexel Hill PA Upper Darby Township. The station itself is located at the dead end of Anderson Avenue just two blocks south of State Rd.  It is an on-demand stop located midway between the Aronimink and Drexelbrook stations just on the backside of the Drexelbrook apartments.  This location provides easy access to the entire Aronimink section of Drexel Hill. Anderson Ave has no dedicated commuter parking at this location and limited access so it is primarily a local commuter stop.  There is a small shed on the eastbound side next to Drexelbrook for waiting commuters.  The video will provide a better feel for the area: Like Aronimink, this station is in the center of the greater Drexel Hill residential area providing immed...

Be sure to visit the Drexel Hill/ Aronimink Open House at 407 Morgan Ave on Sunday October 4! Welcome to Drexel Hill PA - Zip Code 19026 for a quick real estate update. Generally Upper Darby Township PA can be split into two areas by zip codes: 19082/ Upper Darby to the east and 19026/ Drexel Hill toward the west.  The boundary between the two areas runs close to Lansdowne Avenue as it angles through the township.  The western portion of the township, Drexel Hill, is bordered by Havertown to the north, Springfield to the west, and Clifton Heights / Lansdowne to the south.  The zip code is primarily residential but has two mostly commercial areas concentrated along Township Line Rd/State Rd to the north and Burmont/ Garrett Rd to the south.  The area is well served by SEPTA with multiple...

Just a couple of quick SEPTA Update points for residents and those visiting the region: If you need access to public transportation on only a day-to-day basis, SEPTA has now added 3 new passes: the One Day Independence Pass, the Family One Day Independence Pass, and the One Day Convenience Pass.  The primary differences between the Convenience Pass and the Independence Passes are that the Convenience Pass can not be used on the regional Rail Lines and is limited to only 8 trips.  The Independence Pass only places limits on the regional Rail Lines prior to 9:30 AM. All three passes are designed to make using the system as easy as possible.  If you only need access to the SEPTA system while visiting for a short time, these options allow more flexibility then the traditional Weekend Passes...

Today we're in Drexel Hill at the Drexel Park Station for the SEPTA 101 and 102 trolleys in Upper Darby PA. From the 69th Street Terminal out to the Drexel Junction, the 101 and 102 trolleys use the same tracks before splitting. The 101 continues west to Media, while the 102 turns generally south to end in Sharon Hill. The 102 Trolley line intersects with the SEPTA R3 Regional Rail Line at the Clifton Aldan Station while the 101 generally parallels the R3 as it continues into Media. The Drexel Park station itself is a very well tended station designed to serve the local commuters as a walk up or drop off station. There is no designated commuter parking for this stop or the next stop west at Irvington (also in Drexel Park). It does have very frequent service to the 69th Street Terminal w...

Note: Property Now Has Accepted Agreement Welcome back to Upper Darby.  Now we are looking at a property that is about the same size as Union Av but needs more work throughout.  This foreclosure is located just north of Lansdowne Borough in Drexel Hill Upper Darby.  Fairfax Rd runs through Drexel Park past the adjacent trolley tracks across Garrett Rd and south toward Lansdowne.  This property is just two blocks south of Garrett Rd. Fairfax is a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath twin with a full unfinished basement and a separate one car garage.  This is another of Danielle Mateu's properties and as with most foreclosures, this is an as-is property and the buyer must be preapproved or have proof of funds.  The seller is also offering up to 3% toward closing costs.  It does appear to need work through...

Good Day Rainers!Do any of you offer feedback on your showings to the listing agent if they don't ask for it? I normally don't but this weekend, I felt that I had to. If I were a listing agent and someone showed my listing and knew that there was no way in hell it would sell, I would really want the feedback whether I asked for it or not.Home #1Me and my buyers pull up to the home which looked beautiful from the outside. There is a family standing outside looking around. When we walk up to the home, we find out that they have been standing there waiting for their agent to show up and show them the house. (I'll get into that in another post.) Anywho, they ask if they can go in and take a look around until their realtor gets there and I say, "Sure, I'm sure your agent will be here shortly...
