It's called math.

If your agreement calls for the agent to get 1 month on a 12 month lease and now you get a 24 month lease, that is the same as two 12 month leases.

My parents have lived in Palmyra since they were born, and my father still lives there so he has been there for 72 years now. I grew up there Palmyra was a great place its a small community. The schools
were great because the number of kids in a class was very small so there was more individual focus.
I would diffinately recommend it as a place to live. I see you are from Philadelphia my husband is
from Philadelphia also he moved here right after he graduated High School and said he would never go
back to Philadelphia. And the water here tastes much better than the water in PA and much better than Florida its like swamp water So Welcome to NJ.

It really depends on what type of neighborhood you want and if you are looking for a single family, townhome or condo. Are you looking to be in an older more established neighborhood, or a subdivision? What is your budget? Do you have children? Lots of questions to be answered. I can help you navigate the process and figure out exactly what you are looking for. Feel free to contact me with any specific questions.

In my area there is no such thing. You can rent for a month or 10 years and pay only one fee. I find the "renewal fee" to be extreme and should have been discussed/disclosed at the lease signing. ... more

Hello Antbug2001,
Thank you for your question.
The inspection an appraiser will do is not as detailed as the home inspector. I will recommend to have a home inspector check the property. It is worth the money. You do not want to be stuck on a money pit.
Good luck on your purchase. Feel free to ask me any other questions.

Many different things can come up.... that's why you need an experienced agent to guide you thru it. Here's an off the cuff list of things that might come up.....
Well/water test, septic cert, termite cert, certificate of occupany, smoke detector -carbon monoxide detector- fire extinguisher cert, radon test, lender may require utilities to be On.... so gas, electric and water companies may need to be called and given access to the property and past due balances cleared up.

Each item and each township and each lender has thier own nuances regarding these.

Hope that helps,

I have lived in Palmyra for 25 years and think it is a great place to live. It is close to everything (I am self-employed and work many places in the Philadelphia area). You can walk to the RiverLine which will take you pretty much everywhere. It still has that small-town charm. Neighbors are friendly and always willing to help out. It even has a viable downtown.

I have no children, but my neighbors all seem pretty much satisfied with the schools. And, maybe because the houses are close together, I don't know of too many burglaries. Or maybe that's because I have 2 big dogs! Palmyra is a pet-friendly town, as long as you don't live too close to the animal control officer, who is definitely NOT pet-friendly.

Yes and not only can they but they do in 100% of the cases. If they do not counter you in price they will counter on some of the terms always.

Barbara Smith answered:

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. The good news is I believe you have alot of options for rentals here. There are quite a few perspective tenants who do not have the best credit score for a variety of reasons, especiallly in this economy. I believe if you can substantiate a solid payment history on some other things like utilities, etc and can document a solid employement history, there are many landlords who will gladly work with you.

I have attached a list of rentals available in various towns including and surrounding Palmyra. If you need any further informaiton, I'd be happy to assist you. Just contact me using any of the info below. Best of luck to you.

Paul Howard answered:
If it is the house I think it is the original asking price was 179,900. It has been on the market for 4 months and the price reduced shortly after it was listed in April but not since. The agent has done a poor job of marketing by not including photos or room sizes. This may work to your advantage as many buyers won't bother to look at it. It is odd that these were not included. Make sure your offer was presented. I don't know why they would accept it though since they could do much better just by reducing the price some more and adding the detail. (assuming I'm right about the house).
A 4 BR cape in that area would go for 180,000 to 230,000 in decent condition.
