Although everyone has their own level of comfort for safety, I would suggest that a reasonably prudent person would find 19116 quite safe.

This is a serious buy so you want someone who is a good listener. Aggressive when they need to be and passive when they need to be.
I suggest interviewing with a few different agents. Every agent brings something different to the table. Some agents are on teams so they have extra help, some are solo agents. They key is to find someone who is a good communicator and always puts your interest first. A good agent first understands what your interest are.

Are you talking about this being in a Contract of a home that you are selling?
Contracts are written where the Seller helps to pay for the buyers closing costs. You as the seller, are not paid back this in cash after closing. You are getting what you are needing for the Sale of the home.
Ex: Sale price of Home: $100K
Buyer offers you $106K with you paying $6K of their Closing Costs.
You will still net out the $100K.
Hope this helps.

Hi Mark and Dominique:
In Philadelphia there is a first time home buyer program that offers assistance via the Office of Housing and Community Development. It is not a great deal of money, and you do need to be within certain income guidelines and the property does have to be a certain type.

The commitment letter will just state that the lender is ready to provide you with a mortgage. It may have some conditions that have to be satisfied, but you're almost there when you get it.... more
you can probably find a house in that price range,depending on area,but your credit score will be the problem. right now,the minimum credit score is 620 with an FHA(3.5% down) and other loans require a 720.... more
That is a very good question. No one can tell you that because we do not have crystal balls. However, if you want a low interest rate why not pay a point or two and get a really low interest rate. Ask your favorite tax professional about that strategy and see if this helps you. Good luck... more
