Atco is a nice, quiet, safe place to live. Agree with everyone else about schools. Winslow is bad, Hammonton is average. Elementary schools are ok.

Hello Teresa,

Thank you for your question. Sadly the answer is NO. You will need to install a septic system and have it inspected by the county to receive all of the required approvals. Atco is located in the NJ Pinelands, you will also need to submit your new septic design to the Pinelands for approval prior to starting the installation of your new septic. The cost of the new septic can vary depending on the soil perk test results. I grew up in Atco and I have built a few homes in your town. I have the information, contractors and solutions for you. If you would like a free consultation and you are thinking of selling please call my cell 908-892-5607.

Hi Paul,

I moved to Atco 30 years ago and have a long line of friends, family & community business owners who I network with providing me buyers for Atco home owners. I am currently working with several families interested in buying a home in Atco. As a life long resident of Atco, I find it very easy to sell this great litte town that many are unfimiliar with.

I work for Weichert Realtors and have spent the last 27 years helping sellers & buyers make their move and dreams come true! I have won many high ranking awards and certifications. Your free market analysis is now available when you contact me.

Please send me and email or call my cell to talk more!

Thank You,

I shouldn't be saying this on here, but I have been called out. Robin, you are only partially correct. I didn't check to see who you work for, because that is irrelevant in regards to my comment.

Robin, with all due respect, first off, Al never mentioned Fannie Mae. Let me put this in easy terms for you then. I have an investor that will allow for ratios beyond 50% or even over 55%, as long as it is DU or LP approved. You said this to me....

"So, maybe you need to do a little more checking." Because I never talked about the MI restrictions either...

Sorry Robin, but maybe you should do the checking. All I ever said was that higher ratios can be done. Al never mentioned Fannie Mae. My argument in regards to what AL had stated was that you actually have a better chance with ratios over 50% on a FHA loan than a conventional loan. And to debate part of his statement, that conventional loans can go to 50% fairly easy. Huh? Fairly easy? Read below.

Here is what Al said... "I recently got FHA approval with a 56 DTI, and conventional loans can go to 50 fairly easily. FHA generally does not go over 50 either."

No, it doesn't. The guidelines say that you have to take the lower of the 2... which ever is lowest... the appraisal or the agreement of sale. And the appraisal being good for 6 months for the most part, depending on the mortgage program, has been reduced to 4 months.

I hope this helps some. If you are currently working with a lender and they didn't or couldn't answer this question for you, please give me a call. Even if you have other questions, I would be glad to answer them for you.

Lastly, if this was the case, as per your question, you have to pay the difference in cash.

It is a great community. The school systems are good until 6th grade. Once the kids hit middle school they are bused to other schools depending on what part of Atco that you reside.

Hello Dolce,
There is the possibility that the property may have not been a short sale at the time the listing agent proceeded to get the owner sign the listing package? Time goes by quickly and the houses are not selling that fast so a few months may have passed. Nowadays the Trend Multiple Listing Service requires to disclose in the listing if it is a short sale or not. ... more

As is tends to raise red flags. If you don't want to be bothered with fixing things you can always just say no to those items. I'd leave it off the listing. Any more questions feel free to contact me. ... more

A risk that you run is the 2.5% back for closing. That could be a sticking point for the bank.
