Research the school(s) on your own; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. Perhaps the links below may be of help...

The best source for this information, in my opinion, is the multiple listing service. Tax authority records, in my area, have the information but it is not easily divided into the categories you specify. I would find a realtor and ask if they could help me. ... more

You should give them a lower offer. For instance, say the house is 100,000$. Make an offer for 90,000$ in cash and say thats your highest offer. Hope this helps!

Hi, Shirley,

Your price range will be important here as condos along the Brandywine range from $199,000 all the way to $895,000. I can let you know about foreclosed units or those in short sale status. Or you can go to our website and specify those types of properties in your search. If I can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly either by calling my cell phone or email me. All the best! Diane ... more

Obviously, we did not hit rock bottom in 2008 and probably not yet either in 2011. With oil rates currently increasing, consumers will have less money to spend and we should see conservative activity until the oil market stabilizes again. Also, we are coming out of a near recession and conscientious retirement planners see this real estate market as highly inflated as many who purchased between 2004 and 2007 paid RIDICULOUSLY high prices for real estate are now trying to profit or recover from their poor choices in real estate investments at the standard 3%/year on te elevated price they paid in 2005. Also, as people enter or reenter the workforce, salaries are not increasing (due to the near recession) but are equal to that of 8-10 years ago while real estate supposedly has supposedly continued to increase. As consumers we should not make the same mistakes. Know your budget and don't budge. Forget about the market and concern yourself with your realistic budget! It IS a buyers' market...let them know that! ... more
