Holly is spot on. You might be able to do 0% down for a USDA or VA loan (if eligible), 3.5% for FHA, 20% for conventional, programs like "live where you work," or you might find seller financing.

I'd love to put you in touch with an expert in this area who has done all of these and can help guide you to the best option for you. Please contact me at or at or just call: 973.207.9803 and let's talk.

Do you like having a high level of privacy?
Do you like having your own backyard to putter around in?
Do you want the freedom to paint your house the color you want, or add on if you want?

All of the above may be reasons to go with a single family home, as you are the master of your domain!!!


In a townhome you will give up some of the privacy - most likely you may share a dirveway, and have at least 1 common won't be able to make any exterior changes and will have to abide by the bylaws of the homeowner's association.
(I can't even put up hanging plants outside!)

Have you ever owned a home?

I did for 22 years, and it was great while my son was growing up...... now I am enjoying townhome happy not to deal with landscapers or snow removal people or gutter cleaners or new roofs or exterior painting.......all of that is taken care of in my complex...........that's a big plus for me..........

Ask yourself what is important and would be a plus to you!

If you want the home and are willing to wait, sign it, but I would ask your agent why the delay?

They are playing poker with you and trying to squeeze every last bit from you because you've already probably let on that you love this house by offering more than listed, or simply saying it.

Tell everyone , including your realtor that you have a funny feeling about the whole thing and have to think twice but don't burn any bridges. In the meantime, get yourself some other options by getting another realtor and looking at more properties.

Jessica Nooney answered:
Absolutely consult a real estate attorney who can guide you through the proper course of action. Have your inspection reports and Seller Disclosure Statements available for review. The information disclosed by your inspectors and the previous owners will be vitale. I also believe the statute of limitations for litigation in real estate matters is 7 years, so contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Best of luck to you!

You may wish to consider beaches in nearby Delaware. Prices are much better and property taxes vastly more reasonable. But they may not work for your intended needs. Just my 2 cents!
