I would call the school district. From the listing I see two addresses. Sicklerville (in Gloucester Twp) would be Black Horse Regional Disctrict (HIghland, Timbercreek, Triton) Rt 42, Washington Twp is Washington Twp School District. If you can clarify the location I can give you better direction. If you are looking for a specific district, your best bet is to contact a Realtor that can search specific to a district. Call the district directly to find out if it is indeed choice so you are not misinformed by a middle person.... more
I agree with Larry. Most people don't understand that going in. If you are considering a lease purchase, there are a few things you have to consider. Mainly, will the property be worth what the seller will be asking at the end of the term. There are a number of owners that are renting these homes because they can not sell without doing a short sale. They opt to rent these homes until the market comes up and their mortgage balance comes down. This is not always the case, but I have run across this quite a bit while searching for a home for a client. The second thing is to consult and attorney once you have a contract. Make sure you understand fully what the terms are. Also, talk to a reputable mortgage rep that can tell you exactly what you need to do to qualify. I have a great rep in mind. You can reach me at 856.896.8078.
Taxes all depend on location. Also, you have to look at your assessment and determine whether or not your assessment is higher than your market value. If so, you can always contact the tax accessor's office and dispute the amount. If you need help determining that value please give me a call. You can reach me at 856.896.8078
I am glad you got your answer, but I would still call the school district to find out about the schools, bus stops, before and after school care if you need it, or want to look into later on. Even though this has a Sicklerville zip code, it appears to be in Gloucester Twp. The website for the school district is www.gloucestertownshipschools.org. If you would like information on how I can help you find that new home, please contact me at 856.896.8078. My office is located right in Sicklerville.
You can do a search at www.zillow.com for some recent sold homes. I would recommend contacting a local Realtor who specializes in Sicklerville who can provide you a more accurate list of homes that sold who can match up more identical matches and is familiar with the housing market there.... more
