I very seriously doubt you'll find any place in Hershey/Hummelstown that's in good or even fair shape on that budget. If that's your budget and you really need all that much house in Lower Dauphin, I suspect you'll need to settle for a fixer-upper. You'll have to decide what features are the most important to you. Good luck! ... more

I'm sure there can be two ends of the spectrum for a buyer's view on HOA Fees. The HOA was a huge selling point for us at The Reserve at Hershey Meadows. Lawn care, mulching, snow removal, and outdoor maintenance in addition to a pool and fitness center membership, basketball and tennis courts was a huge plus for us. The multitude of amenities that the Association covers has saved us a lot of time and resources for the past 3 years.

Psychologically, there is a big benefit in knowing that you own your house free and clear. Is a benefit
to pay cash for your house if the amount of cash you spend does not consist of a significant portion of your liquid assets and the interest rate or a mortgage is higher that what you can earn in your other investments. And finally, if the amount of savings you get from all cash deal versus a loan deal is significant. Otherwise, having a mortgage let you free up your cash for other investments.

Best of Luck,

It is an independent decision to make. I would consider all options in concert with your son prior to making this decision.

Yes, a seller can market a home with higher than the reccomended acceptable levels of Radon. However he must disclose his knowledge of the levels along with the test dates and results. It is then up to the buyer as to what he does with that information. Failure to disclose this information could lead to problems post closing.

Hello Vinita,

A better place to ask this question would be at Here you will find expert installers and many highly experienced Inspectors with years of inspecting dryvit.

A vasic answer to your question would be it depends on how well it was installed and maintained. To give a specific number of years would not be near accurate without that information. But visit the forum above and ask away with questions regarding dryvit.

Good luck!
