Cara is right, the best and most assured way to get a correct answer is to call the school board and talk to the transportation dept. Give them the address and they'll tell you if they pick a child up at that address, where they will deliver them.

Good luck and best,

Realtors by law cannot comment on area specifics because it could be considered steering which could make the realtor loose their licensee.

Yes! just advertise on crags/list, than you can have an attorney draw up a contract or better yet, you can get one off the internet. In the past I drew my own contract up and went by online samples. You can save yourself 6% commission. In the long run your selling the house much cheaper because your saving thougsands on the commission and the buyer is also gains. too. ... more

Is it a house or apartment? If an apartment as you stated, you don't need an appraial. On the other hand, I have an adorable house for sale in Mantua and one in Deptford, please give me a call they are off the market presently. One of them qualifies for a USDA loan, meaning nothing down. My phone is 856.313.0850 Mary ... more

Mark Hebert answered:
Several factors could apply to your situation so the answer will vary. I'm currently working with a married couple where the husband purchased the property prior to their marriage so the wife is not on the deed or mortgage. As they attempt to purchase a new home it was determined that the wife only will be the named client on the purchase through the mortgage company. Since it will be a marital residence in NJ both have rights to each property where they live together. ... more

Mark Hebert answered:
I suggest you contact an agent and get set up with a property search on-line. Have the realtor send you properties and you can drive by the ones of interest to see if the property suits your needs with regards to a fence. Some times the on-line pictures or descriptions will help. We generally see in the listing if the landlord will permit pets and you can always ask the agent to call about a specific property to further inquire. ... more

You don't need an appraisal to sell your home, but you can get one if you want. Since you say you need to sell shortly, what you need is a Highest Price Analysis that shows you the best price given many factors that i would be happy to discuss with you. Our office is based in Mullica Hill, but we have offices in Sewell, Marlton and Cherry Hill as well. Your home is in the center of our 4 offices which will give you exposure to a greater potential buyer base. The sooner you home is on the market the better the net result will be for you. If you hold it for a couple months you will have months of carrying costs which most likely will offset any small gain in price. Even if you don't contact me, CONTACT SOMEONE ASAP and get your home on the market.

Jeanne Feenick answered:
If you are buying, contact the management company to get a complete understanding of fees going into the community and on an ongoing basis. Do not rely on the listing - agents often rely on the recollection of the seller, and the listing entry may not be complete/current.

Good luck to you,

Hi Ezy2004,
The answer to your question is sometimes dependent on the type and length of the deliquency, as well as the individual lender/mortgage company. I do find Gateway Funding to be a reputable lender, but I do have another lender who has been more flexible on their terms and have been able to close loans that Gateway has denied. Our real estate firm is the only broker located in Deptford Township and could offer you the best guidance in purchasing a property in this community. Please call me on my cell if I can be of further asistance to you in obtaining mortgage approval and locating you a property.

Brenda Feria answered:

Below are the payments for each loan:

30 year fixed rate at 5% - $1033.88 prinicipal & interest payment
15 year fixed rate at 4.735% - $1495,55 principal & interest payment

You can reduce a 30 year mortgage by several years by paying extra every month. The rate will stay the same, but you do have the flexibility of paying the extra $360 more or less a month or not.

You can also ask the bank to set you up on a bi-monthly payment, which will also reduce the number of years to repay. There is a monthly fee for that, but it might be worth it to you. They do require an automatic draft 2 times a month from your account. Some people prefer this to the 15 year.

I retrieved these figures from my local MLS website.

Call your lender for details about any of these loans.

Lois Buzby answered:
The banks may have asked the agent to present several offers until they found the "one they liked best". They want the best offer and often want more than one offer. If that were the case, the seller (bank) would ask for "Best and Final" offer from each interested buyer and decide from those offers. The purchase for a bank owned home generally does not follow normal guidelines. The best you can do, is give your best and final, and await the bank response to your offer. There are many other homes on the market that are not bank owned,Good Luck! ... more
