While the communities of Philadelphia’s Main Line literally blend together as you drive along Montgomery or Lancaster Avenues, they do retain a certain amount of individuality. Once I know the kind of neighborhood you’re looking for—One with neighbors who have block parties? One where people park in their garages and there are few cars on the street? One nearer the shopping areas? One with larger lots?—I can better advise you as to a good fit.
But location has a lot more attached to it than what the specific neighborhood is like. What about how close it is to the train line, if that’s the commuting plan? If not, how long will it take to get to center city Philadelphia to work? School districts work differently here than in most places: our towns are not necessarily all part of the same school district. Wayne, for example, is divided into three different counties, which translates to three different townships and three different school districts. People moving to the Philadelphia suburbs from out of the area can’t be expected to be privy to all of this information, so I make sure to educate my buyers as early as possible to avoid wasting their time looking at properties which won’t work for them.
