There are lots of nuances in terms of locations and property values with the area generally known as "Newtown Square" (zip 19073), which includes portions of several different townships and two different counties. Portions of the Newtown Square area are considered part of the Philadelphia Main Line; others are not. Ultimately your price range and your unique lifestyle needs will determine which area of Newtown Square will be the best fit for you in terms of your preferences for schools, infrastructure, proximity to commuter rail, architectural age & style, acreage, etc, etc. Same for "Wayne" (zip 19087") -- lots of nuances in terms of locations and property values. We have clients and have handled the sale of numerous properties in both areas; IMO both areas are excellent choices for overall quality of life within the Philadelphia region. Hope that helps. ... more

PA Homebuyer answered:
DO NOT MOVE HERE. This place and its management are a joke. Of course, if you enjoy paying obscenely high HOA fees, and then receiving no support from the HOA when you need them to enforce their own bylaws, then by all means, go to Greene Countrie. There's nothing more I personally enjoy than being disturbed on a daily basis by my neighbor, and then have the HOA flake out on me when they need to step in and do something. ... more

Yes Foxes Run is a small creek that runs between both Beechwood and Horton. If you look at a satellite view you can see the water that leads into a pond at Winding Way Park.

You might find this link helpful:
It will allow you to hover over any municipality and will take you to the website for that entity. You can check out the transfer tax, municipal services (garbage, etc.) and other helpful items. Of course, the most important factor for real estate purposes would be the quality of the school district. The same home in a good district will command a higher price (and will sell more easliy) than one in a poorer district. ... more

This subdivision was not built by Pohlig. It was built by Vaughan & Sautter. ( The "Springhouse" elevation & floor plan had a unique style when this neighborhood was constructed... most other new construction subdivisions had ubiquitous stone colonials - which are still very popular along the Main Line. Because this home had a different "New England" style feel, it captured people's attentions and won awards. As an agent, I often see buyers choose to build the same model that the developer has built as his "sample house". It is easier for most home buyers to visualize living in something they can see & visit. In larger subdivisions, builders will often sell their sample home and move the "model" to a different floor plan to expose more buyers to different layouts. (That is what Pohlig/Drueding/Vaughan did in the popular community of "Brooke Farm" in St. Davids - they started with the "Brooke Farm" model, then moved to the "Cheswold" model.) This helps add diversity to a bigger neighborhood... but the "Springhouse" subdivision sold out so quickly that this did not happen there. This model is still so popular that it has been custom-built in many other locations along the Main Line which are not part of the "Springhouse" subdivision. If you are interested in this neighborhood, or in finding a "unique" or more traditional new construction floor plan along the Main Line, I would be happy to help you! Feel free to contact me... Thanks! ... more

I believe that the information should be in the county records. If you would like information as to when it was being developed you might check your planning department.

HI Sandylee,

My best advice is to find a REALTOR to advise you. They are the most familar with the market in your area.

Since you do not have the money to make the repairs, possibily have bids for the pool repair along with an allowance for the floors to be redone or carpeted.

In the current market, your REALTOR may recommend you do nothing more than disclose everything and price the property accordingly. There are great mortgages available for buyers to make the repairs once they have purchased the home (203K)

Team Pulos answered:
You can search Delaware County records fairly easily by using the county's on-line database. Search the web for "Delco Public Access" to get to the home page. Then use the "Real Estate & Tax Records" link to search by township & street name to determine the property owner's name, then use the "Recorder of Deeds" link to search by owner's name for most recent activity relating to that property.

The "Recorder of Deeds" information is usually updated more quickly than the "Real Estate & Tax Records" database. If you can't find details on the property you are interested in, it is possible that the deed has not yet been recorded by the new owner, which is often the lending institution which foreclosed on the property. Lenders who assume ownership of a property will often subsequently list the property for sale, so check with your real estate agent if you are interested in a particular property. Feel free to contact me if you have more questions. Good luck!

To give an analysis of the entire zip code would probably not be as sufficient as letting me know which community you are looking in.
