Hi Mark, the monthly fee is $507 and the yearly taxes around $1,000. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me at 267-432-1893 or by email at email@example.com
Have a great day!
Have your agent contact the management company of the complex to determine if there are any special assessments that are currently in place or are planned in the near future. Asking some residents there who you may encounter might also be helpful.
And yes, the seller should know if there are any special assessments as he would be paying for it currently or should have been informed about any assessments forthcoming.
Good luck to you!

You could find a place for that much in basically all of center city: Washington Square West, Old City, Bella Vista, Queen Village, Rittenhouse, Fitler Square. Parts of Graduate Hospital are good too (stay between 17th and 22nd). Personally, as a female who has lived here for quite a few years, I've felt safest in Wash. Square West...since it's surrounded by good areas and has a ton of foot traffic. The same can be said for Rittenhouse, although you won't get as good of a place for your money.... more
i would be happy to assist you find the apt in your price range via TREND and other venues. Most of the landlord will do income, eviction, credit and criminal background search in order to qualify you. However, the credit score requirement is comparably lower than property buyers. Most of the landlords will require at least 6 months or 1 year lease. However, some of the landlords will consider taking month to month with good credit score, rental record and proof of strong income. When do you plan to move in? Please contact me with any questions. My schedule is flexible. i can email you some listings. Enjoy your weekend.

The future is uncertain, and often out of our control.
A home is the stage setting for your life, and given that the chances are that the house will appreciate or depreciate as readily as the condo, a better decision point would be: which would you prefer to live in?... more
No-one has a crystal ball but to me Old City has already proven itself as investment worthy. It is a newer neighborhood and may therefore appreciate more than some others.

Honestly if you have the means to buy in this market dont wait, the Philly region is seeing at least 4% increases in home values each year. We are in a great market to buy a home for what a home is used for... to live in, raise a family, enjoy comfort, and build equity.. we are obviously in a buyer market with a little over 9 months of inventory, so buying anytime during this period will allow you to experience home ownership and live in your investment as it slowly grows in value.. hope this helps a little.. Have a great week. Ryan M... more
You can go through an attorney, but the problem is that your friend is currently under a contract with an agent who will be needing compensation unless your friend can be released free and clear from the contract.

it is a tough call. i checked out the place myself and can see the promise as a place for businessmen to rest. which unit letter did you buy and on which floor? you are putting down 600-2 mill for this investment... it will pay off well in 10 years because nothing else will be new construction in the area EVER..
well let's not say never, this building only exists bc a fire took the prior building... more
I am not in the Philadelphia area but, let me ask do you want a buyers agent or sellers agent? Are you looking for a special property? I would maybe concentrate on the agency's as well as the agent. A great firm will have a team of agents and support people behind every transaction. If you go to Realtor.com you can search a particular area and also specify what designations that person should have. Now for a buyers agent an agent with the ABR designation is good but there are others. You will also be able to view their websites and if you like contact them. Ask them for their statistics if you like.
If you like I can refer you to a top agent in the area through our international network. Only experienced, trained, certified agents are allowed to take referral business through our network. The agent may not even be a Coldwell Banker agent but, with one of our partner firms through Realogy. So do some research and if you like just drop me a line I would be glad to help.

If you saw the house with your buyer's agent it would be unethical (not illegal) to do an end-run around him. There's no reason, however, that you couldn't tell your buyer's agent that you want to be directly involved with the negotiations, and ask him to set up a meeting with you, your agent and the other side (listing agent and seller).
You can present your case directly to the seller, the agents can sit back and watch, and you have your agent there, just in case you have a question.... more
