Haverford Township's Historic Preservation Ordinance In December 2009, the Haverford Township Board of Commissioners passed Ordinance No. 2580-2009, a Historic Preservation Ordinance, in order to balance the Township's rich history with its future.

The Haverford Hill condominiums continue to be a popular choice although prices and sales activity have both weakened recently as compared to our last update in January 2010. Throughout the county, home prices and sales activity have continued to be weak as consumers remain wary of the unsettled local, national, and international prospects. Condominiums of existing complexes have seen lowered demand and this weakness is reflected in both the pricing and sales activity seen in the Haverford Hill condominium complex. In 2009, the average price of a 2 bedroom unit was $149,000. This eased to $143,000 in 2010 and $133,500 in 2011.  With an average list price for properties currently on the market of only $133,000, the average price appears to be headed lower for all of 2011. The same trend ...

 A touching story in the midst of all the disasters that have befallen Japan. And it's a dog story. A dog rescue story. I have to admit my bias since I'm the proud Mom of 2 black labs.  You go Pearl!!    A floppy-eared homeless pooch turned search and rescue dog has landed in Japan and is actively searching for survivors from the country's devastating earthquake and tsunami. Pearl and her handler, Los Angeles County Fire Captain Ron Horetski, along with five other Canine Disaster Search Teams from the Los Angeles County Task Force 2, arrived in Japan on Sunday, reports The Danville Patch. Last year, the 4-year-old black labrador's shelter-to-hero story was captured in a children's book, A New Job for Pearl. All proceeds from the book, which was illustrated by second graders from Rancho ...

You scroll through the multiple listing information, watch virtual tours, click on Google Earth to check out the street view and everything about the home fits your needs.  Then, you see that number, the "Days on Market" number, and find out the home has been on the market for 160 days!  Your mind races, what's wrong with this house, is it priced too high, why hasn't anyone snagged this great deal?   Its amazing the perceptions that can be created from the number of days a home has sat on the market.  As a buyer its easy to assume the worst, I do it myself.  However, the truth behind this number is much more complex than one might think.  Here's a seasonal and general guide on how to interpret "Days on Market": End of Winter/Early Spring: Expect longer days on Market.  Because winter is...

Here in Pennsylvania, especially in Punxsutawney, we really celebrate Ground Hog Day. You can even win lottery money with a Groundhog scratch off ticket. I look forward to watching the movie with Bill Murray for laughs and eating popcorn beside the fire because I'll probably need to sit down after spending a good part of my day shoveling snow. Yes, we're expecting more snow and/or sleeting rain Tuesday into Wednesday. Punxsutawney Phil better stay inside his hole with a BIG bowl of popcorn. Looking forward to the SuperBowl this Sunday to take my mind off the fact I have to stock up on Advil before the next storm hits.  Keep warm, Phil. See you in the Spring.
