If you mean the mortgage rate, it can vary depending on your situation. It is recommended that you speak to a mortgage consultant first before you start your home search. This way you'll know your buying power. Once you're approved and have selected your new home, it can take as little as one month to close your loan. Please contact Kenton Davidson of Trident Mortgage, he will guide you and work with you to get you the best loan. His number is 610-658-5382. ... more

I listed a home in Broomall about 8 weeks ago and it was under agreement within 7 days. That may not ALWAYS be the case, but with its low taxes, proximity to the Blue Route and attractive neighborhoods, Broomall has remained extremely popular.

Only you, your agent, and the other side really can answer this question. We are not a party to your transaction.

For an accurate answer as it applies to your specific situation, consider visiting with any qualified loan officer(s), after reviewing your overall financials, a determination on qualification can be made, the type of loan, how much, how much down, etc.; if you don't yet qualify, he/she may offer great suggestions as to what needs to be done in order to qualify in the near future... ... more

More cost effective than what? Raze it and rebuild with a stick-built home? Leave it as is and sell it "as is"? Rehab the existing structure?

It really depends on the condition of the property and the costs for each.

It also depends on your intent: Do you plan on living there? Do you plan on renting it out? Do you plan on selling it?

You need to provide more information.

The most aclamaided answer is:
Hire a Realtor - Contact a Realtor. If you already like the property in pictures and price wise, visit it.
Make sure the home is really a Foreclosure / REO / Bank Owned. Be aware that Multiple Offers ( a lot or many buyers will make offers at the same time) is always possible. The recommendation is to make your best and higher offer.
If paying Cash, great, but contact the City to check on work orders or Vacant Building issues. City Inspections as well. If financing, check with Mortgage Consultant about your Financing buying a Foreclosure Property in certain conditions.

Good Luck!

Property is not sold until after settlement. That's the only rule. People can still go through the property in the event that something goes wrong and the contract can't be completed. Backup offers are pretty much normal. ... more

Nancy, if the home is for sale you can include in the finance section of the agreement that the seller will consider "lease option". You can also list it solely as a lease option here in CA., don't know about Charleston. The terms of the lease are set out the outset of the agreement. Check out the link below for generic information and then research your own State for specifics. Good Luck. Cindy Vedder ... more

According to the tax records this property is now owned by a bank, Penn Business Credit Llc. Prior to it changing ownership it was on the market from October 2005 until March 2006, starting at $649,900. After the bank took it over it was listed in May 2006 for $569,000 and is still on the market but has been reduced to $475,000. Foreclosure properties are not always accurately reported in the tax records. ... more
