This home does not appear to be for sale. It looks like the owners pulled it off the market 12/31/12.
If you would like I could try to get in touch with the Realtor or home owner for you to see if they plan to relist it.
In the meantime, here is a link for other homes in the area.
I can email you all town homes currently oavenge market in these towns (and surrounding towns if you wish). Please email me your email address and some of your criteria, including budget. Thank you for your question!

This is a problem in such an area. We used to have the same problem where I am on the East End of Long Island till we had a little building boom over the past 15 years. It's very hard to do comps in such a situation, but they can be done. The bank will have no problem doing them when it comes time to mortgage the property. I would ask 3 agents to do comps for me if I were you.... more
It's currently showing in the MLS as Withdrawn. Listed originally on 10/27/08 - withdrawn on 12/17/08. Any other questions, let me know.

Marple is not a very busy road. There is traffic during the day as it is a short cut to Rt 3, but at night there is very little traffic. I have gone down the street many times and not passed another car.
If you are looking in the area I would be very happy to help you with your home search.... more
You should contact in agent in the Drexel Hill area. They will be able to send you indepth details about properties in that area and in your price range. I work for Prudential Fox & Roach in NJ but we have agents all over PA that would be in the area you are looking.
Here is a link to search for an agent to contact. http://www.prufoxroach.com/Locator/AgentOffice.aspx
Either call or email an agent. If you know of someone who has purchased a home lately ask them for a reccomendation.... more

First of all, I bet you didn't know that attorneys can generally get part of the commission when they make a referral to an agent. You might want to find out if that is the case here.
Second, yes, real estate agents get paid for handling the transaction, and the commission you mention of 6%, while always negotiable, seems within the "normal" range. In fact, Fannie Mae recently issued a statement relating to short sales in which it gave blanket approval for commissions up to six percent for selling a home. So, a major lending institute, even when they are paying the bill, acknowledges that nationwide this is a reasonable fee for residential real estate.
Lastly, I am not sure I understand your question.... attorney hired a realtor and then you asked him to buy the house for half price? Why'd you do that? If you wanted to "give" your friend the house for half price, why was a real estate agent involved at all?... more
It depends on whether or not the home is IN the same section as the homes of either end of the scale. If the home is not in the same section, for instance right across the street, those homes should not be part of the comparisons. It tends to be a difficult situation for the agent, yet if done properly, the home will be accurately priced.
If you build a $350,000 home in a section of $200,000 homes, your home will be worth less than $350,000. I hope this answers your question.... more
Wait until spring! You obviously have much to do to get the home ready and most people put their purchases on hold until after the holidays. Get three good referrals for agents and follow through on EVERY one ot them ! You'll be surprised how much you will learn from each agent which gives you the edge when pricing your home. Privacy is always a concern...since Mom spends her time with the snow birds let her go and find an agent who is committed and will do the necessary work to keep your home looking occupied in her absence. Take advantage of the usual cycles and make sure the place is pristine for your first open house...good luck!... more
