Hi Ms. Maguire.

A few questions to tailor the service to your specific goals and needs:
Will you be buying on this trip or gathering information?
Have you owned property in the US before?
Will you require financing?
How long are you planning to own the property?
Is it the style of home that appeals to you? or the town? or both? Something else?
Is this a vacation home?

Best wishes, Heath

Title V does mean that the system has passed current standards, but you should take the time to review the inspection, understand the system in place, and evaluate it, using local experts where necessary. You wouldn't buy a house without knowing if the roof is in good shape or not, and a septic system works the same way. Unlike a roof though, you can't "see" it, and I think it's this unknown quality of septic that gives buyers pause. It's an important - and expensive - system for you house, so you should carefully evaluate it. It's not necessarily straightforward either - "old" is not necessarily "bad" and "new" is not necessarily "good", although I have found that some people are quick to race to those determinations.



It has become customary for sellers to be responsible for Title V for a simple reason; most banks won't lend on a property with a failed system. So when we see "seller responsibility" what it really means is "hard to borrow money against". As you can imagine, that significantly reduces the number of people who can purchase the property, so I often find that these properties sell for 30-50K below market. Most people who purchase have done a septic replacement before, and understand the in and outs, and that's a good thing - the process, while not overly complicated, is confusing to newbies, and is time consuming, expensive, and often involves a great deal of red tape.

Hi Stephanie,

There is nothing posted in the Multiple Listing Service to indicate that there is an Open House on this property. If you are not already working with an agent who can schedule a private tour, I'd be glad to!

Thank you,

Unfortunately it is no longer on the market. It sat without selling for 429 days and was then withdrawn.

Here is a beautiful attached unit that is similar in style and size:

This home sold for $1.4M in 2002, and is currently assessed at $1.6M. It's hard to give an average, because no comparable homes have sold on this street recently.
