PA Homebuyer answered:
DO NOT MOVE HERE. This place and its management are a joke. Of course, if you enjoy paying obscenely high HOA fees, and then receiving no support from the HOA when you need them to enforce their own bylaws, then by all means, go to Greene Countrie. There's nothing more I personally enjoy than being disturbed on a daily basis by my neighbor, and then have the HOA flake out on me when they need to step in and do something. ... more

I would get the landlord involved. The last thing a landlord wants is for a quiet tenant to leave their apartment because of inconsiderate tenants. Most landlords will not renew the lease for the problem tenant if the problem persists. Record the noise so you can present it to the landlord. ... more

Zakiyyah-joyce Lyons answered:
This is utterly ridiculous. Everyone on welfare does not want to be on welfare. And most of the people who have to fall back on to welfare still work while receiving welfare. instead of condemning people on it why don't you help out by lobbying to raise pay so that everyone can make a decent living and not have to rely on welfare. The fact that you say that people raise their children to continue to be on welfare is racist. You dont know everyone's situation and you need to do research before you start spitting out untruths ... more

Haverford Township. Less expensive than Radnor or Lower Merion, but the schools are just as good (no matter what the Lower Merion and Radnor people tell you!). I know because my kids all graduated from Haverford High School and went to the elementary schools, and they are all now fabulously successful adults. Haverford Township, specifically Havertown, has great housing stock and is much more affordable than Lower Merion or Radnor too. ... more

I've lived in Linwood for over 30 yrs. and the area has went downhill greatly during that time. It used to be a working class homeowner neighborhood but has become an area of welfare/Sect. 8/unemployed scumbag families.That allow their kids to run unsupervised to all hours of the night. Kind of a Chester Jr. so I would not recommend anyone with kids to even consider this area due to the bad influence. No major crime but the vandalism is getting out of hand. It seems you're that your expected to watch the scumbags kids because they are too busy being unemployed.

Edmund Choi answered:
Havertown and Lafayette Hill are very similar. Small town feel with easy accessibility to major roadways, downtown, shopping amenities, parks and blue ribbon school districts. Havertown has a more extensive "Main Street", but Lafayette Hill is conveniently situated to Chestnut Hill. This is the 'burbs and both locations, as stated above, are conveniently situated to centers of commerce. Both offer school alternatives to the public system, if desired. I believe the major question is commute; depending on work location(s), one town may have an advantage over the other. ... more

Rich Schiffer answered:
You will be pleased to know that there are programs available to help home buyers in the City of Chester. In addition to the FHA loan programs that many lenders offer, and Downpayment Assistance Programs like the Nehimiah Program, there are county and city grants available. One county program will give you $5,000 in a 0% loan, that you don't have to repay till you sell the house, and if you live there for more than 5 years, the loan is 100% forgiven. Free money, essentially. Contact me if you want more details. ... more
