Hi there Korto,

According to our data, the status of this home is unknown. This home’s listing agent can tell you more about this place than I can (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). You can email the agent from listing page using the orange “Contact Agent” button to the right of the home photos.

Or, you can look for other local agents on Trulia here:

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you.

Good luck with your search!

I think both responses below are excellent beginnings, I feel that one crucial element should be further emphasized. That is with the marketing side of selling your home. Home values can be significantly impacted if the home is not properly marketed. And the marketplace is different today than when you may have originally bought your home. The digital marketplace is so powerful and those agents with the right tools will make the sale much smoother. Prudential Fox & Roach has the best tools of any brokerage and when driven by an e-savvy agent, like myself, you get a powerful combination. For more details, feel free to check out my website at or call me at (610) 731-6110 and we can discuss this further. Thanks.

I was looking into rental properties because I want to rent a home and I saw that most properties wanted tenants to pay trash and sewage so I just wanted to get an estimate of how much I would be paying a month or year. ... more

Hello Nancy, the answer to your question isn't very different than what you might ask if you were the seller. What amount would seem fair to you as the seller that you would feel comfortable accepting from a buyer, that your neighbors wouldn't be shocked to hear of and that won't pull the area's home values down? Because remember this is what will set the precedant for future sales in YOUR new chosen neighborhood if your offer is accepted.
Two, what amount seems fair and resonable to pay according to comparable sale that you are happy to pay that still leaves the seller happy? That is a win win situation that can go a long way if potential issues come up where every party in the transaction needs to bend a little. Upsetting a seller early on does not help when these types of problems come up! I used to give a report out about this very topic.
Good luck and don't feel you can't ask your Realtor! They will be honest and leave the last decision up to you of course but they should be able to help in this regard! Good luck!

Usually taxes are high because of schools and other services the town provides. The more and better services the higher the taxes are to pay for it. (not knowing your area) Maybe the area has an unusually high number of kids (or special needs kids) in the schools.

It is also possible that area has a lot of foreclosures and/or other non-tax paying property so they are making up the difference with those who are paying.

If the taxes there are to high consider other places. Sometimes moving a few miles can save $1,000 or more on the tax bill.

Hello Alison,

I would have to say your right. Planning to purchase a home and worrying about bills that you don't have now are a great concern. There are certain steps that can be taken, I can start by emailing homes that meet your needs and if you take a liking at a home we can then ask a seller what his or her bills are averaging on a monthly basis. ... more

Hi Tulipia,

You should drive the area at different times of the day and on weekdays and weekends to determine if you like the neighborhood or not. These homes are located in Upper Darby Township with a Clifton Heights postal zip code. They are also located within the Upper Darby School District, with the two closest elementary schools being Westbrook Park Elementary and Primos Elementary. You should check with the school district to see which elementary school these homes will be placed with.

As far as the asking price.... I just did a quick search for active existing (not new construction) twin homes in the 19018 zip code and found 14 homes priced from $76,000 to $180,000 with most of the homes going in the $130,000 to $160,000 range. The home priced at $76,000 needs TLC and the home priced at $180,000 is completely renovated. There are also 2 new home listings not far from these homes in Drexel Hill zip code asking $209,900. Therefore, the asking price of $179,900 fits in with the market of that area.

I am a local realtor, living in Clifton Heights, and would be happy to help you look for your next home. In addition to my normal buyer and seller services, I also specialize in working with 1st time buyers and clients looking for energy efficient and "green" homes. I am a certified Ecosociate through EcoBroker. Visit my website for more info. on 1st time buyer programs, info. on energy efficient tax incentives and more.

Best wishes in your home search.
