Taxes in Lansdowne are very high and the school district is not good. I suggest looking elsewhere in Delaware or Chester county where you will pay more for the house, but will have lower taxes and better schools.

Taxes are high everywhere - the house you can get in Lansdowne would cost double or triple on the Main Line.

Taxes in Lansdowne are like all of Delaware County but not as high as some areas of the county. Still a nice community with easy access to the city, stores, airport, etc.

I provide home inspections in Southeastern, PA. If this is your first purchase, there are a lot of things to consider, but be sure and schedule a home inspection, once you have found your dream home. You do not want that dream home to become a nightmare. Please see my credentials and answers to your home inspection questions at: http://www.ProfileHomeInspections.com The site allows you to ask questions, schedule an inspection and see a sample report. I would be more than happy to help you.

Hi Tub, I can help you with your pre-approval if you haven't taken care of this step yet. I can also lay out rate and program options for you that others may not have available. I'm a big belover in looking at a variety of options and understanding all the pros and cons of each. I'm available to help you at your convenience if you wish.

I can do a full underwriting approval ahead of time if need be and I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.

When you want to buy a home the best place to start is to hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent. EBAs only work with homebuyers and there is never a conflict of interest that will jeopardize your negotiating position. Visit http://www.naeba.org for a referral to an Exclusive Buyer's Agent in your area.

I've written a best selling book called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll teach you how to buy a home and get a loan without getting ripped off. Follow the link below.

Best of luck!

Hi, Lansdowne is a great area, but high taxes. You will have to be conscious of how that affects your monthly payment and if neighboring towns may offer a better value.

When are you looking to move? The next step is to speak with a Realtor and a mortgage banker/broker.

Let Alan or I know f we can help.
