Good evening Paul, taxes will vary depending on location. The best information about potental tenants would be supplied by thenUpper Darby Township Code Enforcement Department. A multi-family usage of a single family residence could spell legal trouble for the owner. Best to confirm the township's opinion prior to purchasing a property. Steve... more

Good afternoon Robert,
From now until the middle of November is our fall selling season. During the holidays sellers are hesitant to list. The pre-spring market starts mid-Feburary. What is your timing? Steve... more
That really depends on your situation and your desire to be a landlord.
Assuming your property is 3 bedrooms (most seem to be in the immediate area, homes are selling (not listed) between $50,000-$80,000 and rents can go as high as $1150/month.
Do you have the equity to sell? Are you looking for a monthly income stream? Can you qualify to purchase a new property while continuing to carry this one? These are all questions you should be able to answer for yourself.
I would love to discuss the particulars with you a bit more. Give me a call.

Why would the buyers have to pay the difference? If it comes back lower, you can lower the agreed price or release them of the contract. Either way that appraisal stays with your house for 6 months. I would not pack another thing until that appraisal comes back!!... more
We are selling our home in Upper Darby, only because we got new jobs and the commute is killing us. But on N Lynn Blvd its pretty safe. I have left keys in doors, heck even left the back door ajar one night and nothing has ever happened. I even walk my dog at night with no worries.... more
Yes, you can rent it out and have a licensed agent (like myself) do all the work including credit checks and screening on your behalf. I have a new listing in Upper Darby Township. In fact, I'm hosting an Open House on Sunday @ 1227 Wilson Dr, Havertown from 1-3pm. Feel free to stop by and we can chat about your needs in greater detail or feel free to call me this weekend to discuss at time most convenient for you at 484-888-4603. I'm happy to help you find a suitable/qualified tenant for your home.... more
You have a right to believe you should get that chandelier, unless it was excluded then it should convey. A good listing agent will always tell a seller to remove or replace anything they want to remove from the house before a buyers sees it because they will want it. Your story is not a new one and the result can be a lot like congress these days. It will require some communication and maybe some compromise. Have your agent bring it up with the sellers agent and go from there. Delay closing if you need to while working it out, once you close you accepted what was there.... more
First thing is when they asked for a 2nd appraisal you should have got an extension on your closing to cover you as there is no way most appraisers can work that fast. You need to contact your loan officer, tell them what teh seller said and that you are out fo contract if you do not close. They need to work some magic. good luck working things out... more
If you feel that you were misled with the details of a listing, report the facts to the broker and/or to the local Real Estate Board.
Oh, and btw, how's H-Town? I grew up on Mill Road.
Consider visiting the neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, after all opinions are often subjective, what may be good for one is not necessarily the case for another...... more
It won't go to Sheriff sale unless it is a mortgage foreclosure.
In Indiana, a property will go to tax sale approximately 3 years after first delinquent in taxes, and will be auctioned for the taxes due plus interest. Some counties are behind, so check with your local county offices to see what their time frame is.... more
It is not standard, but sometimes does happen. There are times when the file gets to the closing department, and there is something that the closer needs, which could be as simple as the fact that the title company or homeowner's company did not use the correct mortgage clause. Another thing that sometimes causes a hold-up is when the mortgage company has to re-verify employment, and something gets delayed. I try to be very pro-active on my clients behalf and follow everything right to the end, and have stepped in to solve little problems at the very end. If you said they sent the docs but not the wire, I might be more concerned. Can you reach your loan officer over the weekend? Do they know what went on?... more
Hello Ladye and thanks for your question.
Based on my very limited experience in this field, one of the comments I often hear from people "claiming" to want to buy your home or take over the payments is that they like to call the seller or current homeowner "an equity partner" or refer to the scheme as "equity sharing" in an attempt to make it sound as if you won't need to pay for the home, but later, you'll get money out of the deal if it sells for more. Proceed with extreme caution--we are, after all, talking about the largest asset you own. When I once questionned one of these solicitors about their "equity sharing plan", she got really ticked at me and started telling me that the concept was so complicated it was probably "over my head." Being a realtor with an accounting and finance background, I was pretty sure it was not over my head, but it was purposely made to sound complicated as part of the "sales tactic."
If you are approached by someone who appears to be legitimate and want to look into a sale involving assumption of your loan, that person will not hesitate to put his/her plan under the magnifying glass of a good real estate attorney. Always seek qualified legal assistance when contemplating any unconventional home selling techniques. incidentally, did you know that FHA loans are, in fact, assumable, while most conventional loans (Fannie and Freddie) are not?
