Horsham is my hometown, and I love it. It is located about 10 miles north of Philadelphia in Montgomery County, right along the border with Bucks County. The township was incorporated way back in 1717.
One of my great fears as a real estate agent is missing one of the time sensitive requirements listed in the agreement of sale. There are a number of them, and missing any one of them could cause serious

I read an interesting article recently, I think it was in the New York Times, about the adverse effect that burgeoning student loan debt is having on the housing market. That’s right, student loan debt
I am convinced that the difference between sellers receiving top dollar for their homes or sellers getting bottom dollar for their properties, and a ton of headaches attempting to sell it, depends on how
Change is coming to Horsham, and it will be here before you know it. The planning for the redevelopment of the Willow Grove Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in the township is gaining momentum. The
I’ve always been fascinated with borders and boundaries. I've always enjoyed spending of time looking at maps for the dividing lines between cities and boroughs, townships, counties, states and countries.
There are a number of municipalities in Bucks and Montgomery counties that have dog parks affiliated with the township or boroughs, which is pretty cool. They seem to be a big hit with dog owners and their
Great questions. I think our house's septic system is about that old. Albett2000's advice seems to have proved true for us. We just got a pumping and inspection last week, and it's stood the test of time. Thiago | http://www.branvallconstruction.com/services.html... more
I am a tree guy. I love trees. All kinds.OK, make that most trees. I don’t really care for black walnut trees. Too much fruit in the fall. But I love trees. I think they enhance the beauty and worth
The Final WalkthroughI’ve been listing and selling homes in Bucks County for the past 20 years. Just a few of the cities that I represent are Newtown, Yardley, New Hope and all of Upper Makefield.
After 10 years in the real estate business, I am becoming more and more convinced that prohibitively high taxes, be they real estate taxes or earned income taxes, eventually start doing more harm than
Hi - Only 2 condos have sold in The Heights of Lebanon in the past few years (I was one of the agents who sold one of them). To answer your question, YES, it does matter that a large portion of the units are owned by one entity (the builder) and are rented out. It does not conform to regular lending guidelines, and therefore must be purchased under a lender's portfolio product. There are other considerations you should keep in mind too.
I am happy to answer any specific questions you have about the complex, as well as share my experience my buyer's had when purchasing a unit there.

You sound like a very logical person. Your analysis of the property in question is well thought out. When dealing with septic issues, the buyer must be very careful. An estimate of $30,000 could be even more costly, if issues are uncovered during the installation of a new system.
In making an offer on a home that needs a lot of work, you should estimate what the repairs will cost and subtract that number from what you think the house would be worth if all of these repairs were made. That would be the number you should offer on the home.
If a seller is not willing to sell for that price, it is their prerogative. Remember, the seller is usually living in the home and is not seeing the same issues that you are seeing. His toilet flushes, so he doesn't think he has a septic problem. The roof isn't leaking, so he does not care if the roof is 30 years old.
Patience may be the only approach at this point. If he receives enough low offers he may truly realize what the home is worth to the rest of the world.... more
Hi Sanal, You definitely need a lender experienced in this area to advise and pre-approve you. Many will say that you need landlord experience in this situation. This is true of some programs, but not of others. There are other possible pitfalls that must be gone through one by one to make sure you are all set and don't misstep. You should be speaking with a lender before you start the process of looking to rent and/or buy so that you know exactly where you stand and how to proceed prudently. If I can be of assistance, feel free to contact me at your convenience. You can live chat with me at the link below and my full contact information tagline will also be posted as a reply to this comment. Regards, Robert Hanson: email@example.com... more
