As a home inspector, we do not check for codes or zoning ordinances. Call the local municipality and ask for the building inspector or code official to find out the answer

This simple means that you are interested in a property that already has offers on it. Multiple offer situation often lend themselves to the bank/seller requesting interested parties to submit their "highest and best" offer for consideration......a type of sealed bid that will be considered. ... more

Getting pre-approved and selecting a realtor are all the correct answers to getting started. Once you have found that dream house, you need to protect your interests by having it inspected. The Home Inspection will provide you with the information you need about the property, to make the important decisions as you go forth with negotiations to closing. I provide computer generated reports; including digital pictures of any deficiencies and arrange for other inspections you might desire. Covering the five counties of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Although it is correct that the law says you do not have an enforceable real estate contract until it is in writing, there is an exception to that rule which is: you can enforce the contract against the party who has signed it you haven't signed it yet. Unfortunately, this is not what happened here. That is why I always ask that the seller sign first in such a situation. But you should find out what aspect of the offer was not acceptable and see if you can resurrect this deal. If they got another offer, can you sweeten yours with a better closing date, for example. Don't let the bad feelings that this has caused get in the way of this house if it is the one you really want. ... more

Hi Junise,

I actually live right down the street from the 159 W. Plumstead property(!), but unfortunately it's no longer on the market :( The good news :-)) is that there are several homes in Lansdowne, currently on the market for sale and, while I'm sure that you were excited about the potential of the 159 W. Plumstead property, I'm 100% certain that we could work together toward finding a comparable home for you in the neighborhood. As I mentioned, I'm not just a Real Estate Agent, I actually live in the neighborhood- Lansdowne is place that my family calls home :-)) so I would love to further assist you with your search. My e-Mail is and you can also reach me anytime on my cell phone at (484) 682-3256. Whatever you decide, I wish you tons of luck and look forward to passing you on the streets of Lansdowne as a neighbor!!

Kind Regards,
Sean J. Sams
