Home Buying in 19403>Question Details

Linda Clark, Other/Just Looking in Limerick, PA

Middleton Place, Jeffersonville, PA 19403

Asked by Linda Clark, Limerick, PA Thu Mar 10, 2011

I'm looking to purchase a home at Middleton Place. However, I noticed that there are a lot for sale and the pricing seems to be on the low side. It's a great value for me but I wonder if this is because of the neighborhood. Are there a lot of thefts around there? I am thinking of the close proximity to Norristown and I am concerned. The townhomes look very nice and the one I have my eye on is really nice inside.

I've been living at Middleton Place for over 7 years. The value of Middleton Place condos have dropped between $35,000 - $50,000 since 2008. My home has dropped $57,000 in value because I purchased it right before the housing bubble burst. Worse yet, the property values continue to drop by the month. The crime rate at Middleton Place has drastically increased in the past 2 years. Cops are constantly at the property arresting someone. It is scary just to leave your home at night. Neighbors are extremely loud. There are teenagers who play loud music in the parking lot at 3am.

I wish I could move out of here, but cannot since I'm $57,000 underwater. I regret ever moving here. The condo fees have recently increased to $412 a month. Yes, that's $412! Middleton Place does not have a pool, nor a park, nor a playground. We were also hit with a special assessment of $777 in addition to our monthly HOA fees. The management company ran out of money and couldn't cover snow removal. The best choice you can make is not to move to Middleton Place.

We just purchased 207 middleton place and will be moving after sept 26. It seems like a nice quiet community . Yes norristown made me a wee bit nervous but the remolded home came at a great price. We've been there on the weekend ans evenings and it was just as quiet. We are however investing In new locks and adt .

Hi!

I have a listing for sale in Middleton now. 906 Middleton...End unit all remodeled on the inside. Super cute! I know the prices have dropped quite a bit in Middleton but they have dropped everywhere in the past two years. They really are the best prices in the area right now.
I will tell you that this particular development does not accept FHA loans. They only accept conventional loans. I'm not sure what kind of loan you are looking for but I can have my Mortgage officer call you to help.

If you would like to see the 5 units for sale in there, please let me know. I would love to set them up for you.

Good Evening Linda,

Good advice from Phong. I would like to add you can also contact the local police department and ask them specific information regarding that particular neighborhood. You can also speak to a few of the neighbors for their insight.

I know the area well, if you need assistance I'd be happy to assist.

Hi Linda,

How are you? Thank you for your online inquiry. I think the best way to find out if you like a particular neighborhood is to drive around the area, preferably on different times of the day (morning, afternoon, and evening) just to see how the area is like. Furthermore, a "safe neighborhood" can be depicted differently by each individual.

If you are interested in finding out more about crime rates, here is a couple of websites that I provide to my buyers when they have this type of question for me and hopefully you'll find it helpful as well!
