Renee Georgi answered:
Commission is calculated on the purchase price of the home UNLESS the Listing Agent makes it very clear that Commission is to be calculated on the NET amount. If an Agent forgets to stipulate this and later asks the Buyer's Agent to honor this, it is up to the Buyer's Agent to make that decision. My personal opinion is that if you as a Listing Agent FORGET to put something in writing, then YOU personally should eat the difference, NOT your Seller. ... more

Hello,
As a Realtor and property manager we know what investors may be looking and what to look out for when purchasing an investment property. We are investors as well.
I would be happy to help you search for properties and arrange for showings.
Also, one of our investors is selling his entire property portfolio. All properties are in rent-able areas of the city and most are already rented and receiving income. Please let me know if you would like my help with your search and/or would like to see the above mentioned property list.
Sincerely,
Dmytro V. Bova

A seller of assist of $4,800 on an $80,000 purchase is 6%, which is permitted. Seller concessions such as a seller assist is common and should not necessarily deter a seller from accepting an offer. To strengthen your offer, you will want to make sure the rest of your agreement and terms are sound (tighten the contingencies (if possible), provide a pre-approval letter from a lender, and provide a completed BFI). Many times, these items are the difference between getting an offer accepted or rejected. My law firm specializes in residential real estate transactions. I offer a free consultation to buyers or sellers. I would be happy to assist further. ... more

High crime and high illegal drug sales! Lots of junkies in the area and it's filthy. So be forewarned. Just look at the map here on the high crime level and you'll see.

Credit inquiries do not affect your score by 10 points on average. Please click on the link for the myfico.com website to read more on inquiries. It may have no or little affect. New Credit only constitutes about 10% of the total credit score, and inquiries are a subcategory of that. If you are worried about your credit or would like to talk more, please contact me through my profile page. Thanks. ... more

Looks like the 3, 54 & 57 Bus would all get you close and Market/Frankford Line (El) would get you to Kensington and Tioga.
