You can click on any home you are interested in, and scroll down on that home's page. It will have a map where you can look at crime rates. From what I remember, the worst is in downtown Coatesville itself, but not much outside of there. ... more

Put a "For Sale By Owner" sign in the front lawn with your phone number on it. Shouldn't take long and the owner will call you!

The USDA PMI Rates 2015 are also pretty cheap, when compared to FHA loans. There’s an upfront, initial premium charged of 2%. This USDA PMI premium is generally added to the Loan amount. So, if the home that you want to purchase is $250,000, we would multiply that by 2% (which equals $5000) and your loan amount would then be $255,000.

Pros No water bill. Cons can be numerous and expensive if septic is not cared for properly. Always have a septic tested and inspected as it can be a $200 fix or a $20,000 replacement. Well water can taste bette than public water if capped and vented corectly and again you do not have to pay for it. Hope this helps and best of luck to you. ... more

1.75% (of the loan amount) up front MIP and 1.35% (of the loan amount) monthly MIP for FHA. .On a conventional loan the monthly would be roughly $85.50 if your score is above 680. It would depend on how you would want to structure the mortgage insurance, whether you want a upfront, single premium, split or monthly. Let's discuss your loan scenario in more detail. Contact me at 800 315 8803. My name is Bart and I have been in the mortgage business since 1987. I am happy to answer your mortgage questions, 7 days a week and review your loan scenario. Until then, I look forward to hearing from you.
