You could try calling Westbury Apartments in Willow Grove on Terwood Road. They have one and two bedroom apartments starting around $810.00. It is really hard finding apartments in Willow Grove at the price you can afford to pay. Best of luck to you. ... more

Willow Grove has a large mix of neighborhoods. It is located in Upper Moreland Twp that provides many recreational opportunities, shopping, good schools, and a suburban feel but still close to the activities of the city.

Dear homebuyer.
I am familiar with the development and condo fees are not negotiable. However once you become an owner you can plead your case with the HOA board. I own a condo in willow grove and the fees are $412 per month. This is due in part to mismanagement of the association over time. I would be wary of buying where fees are really high as over time these properties become less affordable to the owners and delinquencies tend to increase which puts a bigger burden in those that pay. Also you will be surprised how much more you can afford if the fees were lower. For example a $150 a month fee equates to $30,000 less in mortgage that you can afford. I would be happy to discuss this with you further if you like.

That's not an easy question to answer. There are so many factors that determine what a home sells for. If you are thinking of selling or just want to know the value of your home, you should contact a Realtor and ask him or her to do a CMA for you. That would be much more reliable than taking a guess. A professional can help you look at your particular situation and see if it makes sense for you to sell now. ... more

First you would want to see actual sale prices for others in that particular area and compare features, square footage and specific location. That will be your guide as to what such a home should sell for and them make an offer with some negotiating room if you like what you see. ... more

There really are no specific govt rules so long as you go from a primary residence to another primary residence. For the best, most accurate details, consult your accountant.

I some cases yes, in most that money is better used for such things as. Only a comparison of recent solds similar to your home with and without AC will tell you. As an agent with over 15 years in this business I cant think of a home that adding an AC was the best use of $3,000.00. Ask your Realtor to do a walk through. Keeping this budget in mind, mention the AC and ask for a cost benifit comparison. ... more

I doubt that there is such a thing:

The scope of the work, the size of the job, the materials, and the quality are just too variable:

It could be $150/sqft and it could be $500/sqft; how do you average that? ... more

Hello Kie,

There is something bothering you about the property on day 1. That issue will not go away.
This is a home that you will be living in for a number of years.You are going to own a beautiful house and you will love it as long as you don't look out of the windows and close your eyes walking to your car.

If you need some good mortgage advice, drop me a line.

Just because the tax is imposed, it does not mean necessarily that you need to pay more than what you are paying to the city of Philadelphia.

In Springfield Township, the money paid to Philadelphia counts as a credit to the 1% due the township. I only wish I could use her 4% to cover both of our 1%'s. Oh well.

I would advise you to consult a tax professional to be sure in either case.
