Hi Ramesh! Darczuk is a desirable community in Garnet Valley. It is also referred to as Pondview.
There are currently no listings there, and the most recent sale was for $770K in October 2013.
If you want to send your e-mail privately, I can create an MLS search for you for Darczuk. There are other upscale communities in Garnet Valley, if you would consider an alternative location.

102 Dougherty Lane is no longer on the MLS. It was removed in November. Additionally, that home is located in Aston and is in the Penn Delco School District.

Our real estate office is located in Boothwyn and therefore we are very familiar with the Garnet Valley area. Feel free to contact us if you would like to explore homes that are currently for sale in the Garnet Valley School District. Please visit our website at Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

I have had rental listings in the Garnet Valley School District over the years. It is a desireable location with a well recognized school district. I have found the rental market very brisk, meaning that the homes don't linger and command a good rent when in a good location, not busy road, and in good condition. ... more

Good Morning jlchaffin,

How are you? Thanks for your inquiry. Seller's assistance can be provided to buyers as long as you are OK with the NET amount that you are going to get at settlement day.

For example, if a buyer is putting in an offer for $100,000 with $5,000 seller's assist towards their closing cost. In seller's perspective, you're only getting $95,000 minus all of your other closing costs fees on your side (such as transfer tax, U&O, etc.). And to keep in mind is that the purchase price will still have to be appraised for the amount that is accepted.

If you're not currently working with any agent and are interested in getting a free Comparable Market Analysis emailed to you, feel free to send me an email at with your property address that you're trying to sell and I'll be more than happy to run the report for you so that you can see what's going on in your specific block or neighborhood.

Hope this info helps.

Hope that helps!
