As with many other communities you must be cautious. But in that area it is quiet and not much happens. The neighbors look out for each other.

Hi Patrick, if you are asking what are the taxes like in the area where you provided the link above (aka) Germantown. You are looking anywhere between $2000-3500. Also keep in mind you have East Germantown and West Germantown, that also plays a factor. If you have any questions you can give me a call.

You need to check to see if they have a city Housing inspection License ( Rental License) if so then they are legal or save $100 and go down to MSB in the Basement to L&I and check the zoneing yourself.

Hi Dwayne,

Some banks are also offering My Community Loans to school teachers where you only need 3% Down Payment and there is no PMI necessary.

Feel free to call me to discuss it in more detail. I can refer you to a mortgage broker who can assist you in that type of mortgage.

Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

Hi Lois,

Some sections of Germantown have recently been increasing in value. Since values vary greatly block by block, I would need some further details about current condition, amenities, etc.. so I could give you a realistic Comparative Marketing Analysis of your property.

Please feel free to call me directly with any real estate related questions. I'd be happy to help.

Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

Hi Dwayne,

As you see, licensed Realtors are prohibited from commenting on crime statistics and other data due to Fair Housing Laws.

You can find answers to most of your questions on sites like this one, Trulia.com, and many others.

As far as market value analysis, I may be able to help you. The home values vary greatly block by block. Please feel free to call me to discuss the address in question and I can send you comps and trending data that may be helpful. The Realtor who is acting as your Buyer's Agent should be able to provide this information too. Maybe you didn't secure the help of one? If that's the case, I'd be happy to help you.

Looking forward to speaking with you soon.

All the best,

Crime is moderate a busy area close to Olney Transportation Center. I know of a property in close proximity that would offer you a true no money down opportunity with all furnishing and appliances included. It is in a much safer area than 19141 area. Only 4-5 minutes away. ... more

Good Evening 3kg,

You Should call city hall and see if there are any city violations on the home that need to be cleared prior to you taking ownership. There may be fines to be satisfied also..... You should do this prior to closing so you make the current home owner is obligated to satisfy fines- or violations ( if any). Usually an agent would handle this for you?

Larry Lichtman answered:
Hi Meg,

Bruce has provided good information below.

I go to settlement on a house at 1302 South 7th St next week. My client, the Seller, applied for a 10 year tax abatement prior to re-construction. The new buyer will have an annaul tax bill of only $888. They will not be re-assessed for improvements for 10 years. It may go up slightly as Philadelphia raises taxes occasionally but this property's assessment will not increase for 10 years.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your plans. I'd be happy to help you through the process.
