In Berwyn the town charges $10/$100 on top of what the county stamps $1.50 for every $1,000.
Add this to the cost of a survey approx. $400.00 the amounts add up.
Having a experienced Realtor will help inform you of all the costs associated with buying in the town. If you are looking for an agent please feel free to call me. I am a life time resident and would be happy to walk you through the process.
I would have your agent give you an idea of buyer expenses....it sound like you are looking to buy a bank owned home.
I hope this helps!
