Note: all House Crawls™ start at 10 am--complete details will be emailed to you just before the date of each one.
So, what is a House Crawl™, anyway?
Loosely inspired by bar crawls we sort of remember, we tour several houses (typically 4-6) on the market right now in a given neighborhood. But first, we start at a local coffee and then we end at a local bar, because life is what happens between coffee and beer, right?
Oh, we actually get to go into the houses?
Yep, and all of the houses we go into are actively on the market at varying price points so you can understand the market in that neighborhood. This helps you answer questions like: What’s the difference between a $200,000 house and a $700,000 house in this neighborhood? Do condos make sense in this area? Does outdoor space come at a premium?
Sounds cool. What else should I know?
For Sellers: We sometimes call the House Crawl™ "boot camp for sellers," because once you've come on one or two of them, you'll have a very good sense of what buyers like to see when it's time to list your house. Multiple people have told us how helpful it was to see how a cross section of people reacted to various homes, both positively and negatively--it's like your very own focus group.
For Buyers: We don't just go into houses. We also walk the neighborhood so you get a good feel for what the whole area has to offer. In Philadelphia, you buy into a history, a community, and a set of amenities (like parks, schools and shops) that vary from neighborhood to neighborhood, and sometimes even from block to block. A House Crawl™ can help you find a block to love.
Are you a giant ball of anxiety who can't even commit to watching two seasons of Better Call Saul (even though everyone says it's awesome), much less buying a house right now? No worries--looky-loos are totally welcome. Whether you're just starting to explore Philadelphia real estate or you just like to look at houses, come on out.
Oh, I get it--you lure us in with house porn and then go for the hard sell
Hey, you seem great. We can work together if you want, but “hard sell” is not our jam. It doesn't matter to us if you never intend to participate in a real estate transaction in your entire life. Why? Because 1) we really do enjoy talking about real estate and Philadelphia that much, and 2) if you have a good time, maybe you'll tell a friend or two (society dictates that we have to make a living, but nobody says we have to be obnoxious about it).
