Hastings Avenue Foreclosure - Havertown Haverford Township PA Real Estate

Hastings Ave Havertown Haverford Township PAToday, we have another of Danielle Mateu's foreclosures but this time located a bit farther north in Havertown, Haverford Township PA in northeast Delaware County. 

This twin is located just north of Darby Road and two blocks east of Eagle Rd in central Havertown.  This is an excellent location within easy walking distance of the commercial area along Darby and Eagle Roads and just blocks from the Haverford Middle and High Schools.  It also provides convenient access to the SEPTA Route 100 High Speed Line for commuting toward Norristown or Center City Philadelphia.

Hastings Ave is a 4 bedroom 1 bath twin with a partially finished basement and detached two car garage.  The home has a newer kitchen, newer bath, replacement windows, front porch, and rear deck. This property is in better condition than most bank owned properties but will still require some light TLC. As with most foreclosures this is sold as-is and corporate addendums and preapproval will be required.  The video shows it best:


This is a newer listing having only been on the market for 6 days, but it appears well priced for homes in the immediate area.  Currently there are 6 homes on the market on the surrounding streets including both twins and single family properties with an average list price of $270,000.  This pricing is roughly in line with the past six months sales that have had an average sales price of $274,000.  In all Haverford Township there are currently 43 active twins with an average $245,000 list price.  Thirty-eight twins have sold over the last six months with an average $226,000 sales price.

Unlike the other foreclosure properties that we have previewed, this demonstrates the good condition that can be found in some of these properties.  Although this is bank owned, its condition is really more reflective of a private owner type property, and it appears to need mainly cosmetic work.

As always, should you have any questions or be considering buying or selling in the area, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.
