Fall is in the air in Chester County!

There is definitely a hint of fall in the air in East Goshen, Chester County. The sugar maples are starting to turn orange, I can smell leaves burning and chimney smoke. Along with that comes shorter days which in real estate, means more houses being shown on the weekends, rather than the week nights. I…

Hershey’s Mill Association Fees, Chester County

Hershey’s Mill is one of my favorite over 55 communities, which is a gated and guarded community in East Goshen Township. The location is unsurpassed in convenience and the landscaping is simply beautiful in all seasons. Some people have said that they find the Association fees to be a bit high but many do not…

Another school year has started in Chester County

I live in the West Chester Area School District, where thankfully, school will not get started until the Tuesday after Labor Day. Downingtown, however, is back at school. My son is very grateful to have had one more week to sleep in and enjoy late nights with friends. During the school year, schedules get back…

The View at High and Gay Street, West Chester, PA

One of my favorite things to do is walk and drive around West Chester Borough, in Chester County, PA. The Court House is a lovely old building and while sitting at the traffic light at the corner of High and Gay Street, I couldn’t help snapping this photo. I hope you enjoy it.

When does the spring market start?

The spring market is unarguably the best time to put a home on the market for sale. I know that a lot of people think the spring market starts in, well, spring! Some even go so far as to wait until May. I disagree. I think that most buyers think they are going to buy…

Marching bands from all over come and compete for prize money, The Lone Ranger made an appearance, Emcee’s Karen Rogers and absolutely adorable Adam Joseph kicked off the parade. It was so much…
