Hello Financially Free,

You might have better results asking in the Harrisburg Real Estate section for property in the York area. The MLS for the Philadelphia area doesn't extend that far west.


Thank You,

Brian Fletcher

The answer to this question is..... it depends. at closing you will be required to pay taxes- which can be prorated based on when you buy the home, Insurance, transfer fees, closing fees, notary servicesetc. If you do not want to cover the costs of all of these things it is good to ask for sellers assist. This will help ease the costs of closing,

Hi Pat,

I'm not sure I understand what your question is exactly so all I can say is that you have to forget what happend a couple of years ago. It's a whole new ball game now. The market has changed dramatically.

I don't care what any other Realtor comes on here and tells you, they can't tell you how much your home is worth today without coming out to see your home. They can give you numbers of how much other homes in your area sold for within the past two months but it wouldn't be very accurate or pertain to your individual home.

My advice would be to have a Realtor come ot your home and give you a home value report.

You just have to be open to "hear" what they are saying and accept it. If you do not want to have a Realtor come out and give you a home value report, your other option is to hire an appraiser who can come out and tell you how much your home is worth.

If you are interested in having a Realtor come out to your home and give you a home value report, I would love to talk with you to see if I would be the right Realtor for you.

Feel free to email me or call me at (215) 669-0589.

Hi Roel,

I know someone who is buying up all properties in that area. A property is valuable to the buyer who wants it. Are you looking to sell it?

Hi Julie,

I would need to do more research and have more information on a particular property that you are interested in. I would do you a disservice if I just said it was worth it or threw numbers out there at you. If you can be so kind to send me more information, I would be happy to give you some advice.

Chris & Stephanie Somers answered:
Lyn,

Thanks for your questions. As a Philadelphia real estate pro, it is difficult to answer your question because both of these zip codes are so large. For exmple, 19134 covers Port Richmond to Kensington. Further, these 2 zipcodes are not the closest to Temple Univ. Those zipcodes would be 19122 and 19121. Many Temple students reside in 19122 (Old Kensington) and 19123 (Northern Liberties). All of these zip codes represent investment opportunties as the future looks bright with the prospect of Philadelphia doing well in addition to the Universities, hospitals and businesses that support the city.

Feel free to email me from our website below with any other specific questions as well. Also, our site is very informative and resourceful for all of these areas as well. Look foward to hearing from you,

Chris Somers

There's really no "place" in particular that can find you a rent-to-own situation. Just talk to a good Realtor that can help you create a rent-to-own with a house that has been on the market awhile. Your areas are pretty far apart though. If you narrow it down, it might be easier. ... more

Chris & Stephanie Somers answered:
That is a difficult question... with the uncertainty in the housing market, I think it will be tricky for anyone to answere that question. Now there is also the risk that mortgage rates will be trending up above 7 in the next 3 to 9 months.

That being said, if Philadelphia does well, this area will do exceptionally well. It already has. This has been the focus of a lot of investors due to its past appreciation and expected appreciation and growth. The great news about Philadelphia real estate is that our market has been very resilient and is really positioned to do well with strong jobs, high demand of housing due to the Univeristies, healthcare industries and so forth.

If you are interested in making an investment in the area, I would recommend visiting our site below. You can contact us from there directly. Visit our blogs as well.

I really believe that certain blocks in that area are not going to increase in value. However, it is generally an up and coming area. If you were to contact me, I can send you monthly reports that show your property's value every month automatically. Of course, I would need your email and mailing addresses. There is no pressure however, you can unsubscribe at any time. My email address is gslawter@comcast.net or you can call me at 215-676-0863 if you wanted to talk prior to releasing any information. Thank you and God bless. ... more

Jeremy S. Hill answered:
KC- In terms of investment you have to think about what you are trying to accomplish. Are you looking for immediate cash flow? Or are you looking for the property to appreciate over a period of time then you get a return on your investment? Generally speaking the area's values are good and many would consider the area to be a desirable place to own a piece of real estate. ... more

it is a tough call. i checked out the place myself and can see the promise as a place for businessmen to rest. which unit letter did you buy and on which floor? you are putting down 600-2 mill for this investment... it will pay off well in 10 years because nothing else will be new construction in the area EVER..
well let's not say never, this building only exists bc a fire took the prior building

Public records at the county courthouse. This the best and most accurate way. Although it is very tedious.

I believe there may be some websites out there that MAY be able to help you. Although I can not attest to their accuracy.

Michael D Delp answered:
This may be a perfect time to buy. There is more of a market for smaller, lower priced homes, and you may be able to pick up on a larger home that has been on the market for a while. If you could hold on to the home as prices rise, you should be able to gain equity faster.
