Best bet is to find a good local agent to assist. Is there someone for your particular condo that handles most of the sales or listings?

Good Luck!

Donna Johnson answered:
I'm not from PA, however, it might be good for you to spend a day in Abesecon, NJ. Walk around to the shops and cafes and talk to some of the owners or patrons and get an informal view from people who live there. In doing so you get first hand information. Also get information from someone who is not going to necessarily benefit from your information. You might also check with the Youth Court System in that area. They can determine what percentage of their crime related referrals are race versus other such as gangs and drugs. ... more

There are homes listed as being available for lease purchase. I'd need a little more info before I could email you those properties, such as price, bedrooms, type of home, etc.

Get in touch with me via cell or email and I'd be happy to send you what's available.

Scabi - in New Jersey, or anywhere else in the U.S., commissions are negotiable, and you will find different agents, in the same town (and sometimes in the same agency) charge different commissions.

Interview a series of agents, and include that question as part of your meeting.

Hi Jopoker,

Here is the list of FHA approved condos in Galloway:

Fox Chase is not included in that list. They look at several factors including investor ownership.

If you have further questions call me at 609-484-9890 ext. 132.

Matthew & Richard Haviland answered:
Good question. I have clients that have bought homes built by both builders and they were happy with the both builders. The benefit of buying the home that is already completed is that you don't have to worry about the landscaping and fence and you already know what the taxes will be. On the other hand Foxmoor is brand new. So you won't have any problems with the house. It's a tough call they both have their advantages and disadvantages. As far as I know both neighborhoods are safe and both builders are good. You may want to call Galloway police to get an opinion on the safety of each neighborhood or you can also drive by at night to check things out.

Please contact me if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Best wishes,

Jaime Whittaker answered:
dear writer6275
It could be that the agents were more concerned with getting your home under contract(getting the listing), then get working on your purchase. The market conditions currently favor buyers, not sellers. So it would be important to get the home sold. A good agent can work with you to plan a smooth transition. Regarding the commission split listed 2.5 is the sales price commission to the buyers agent and transaction brokers dont do much in south jersey and they would receive no commision. FYI-Use a buyers agent when buying new construction, not the sales agent, she represents the sellers/developer. If you are still interviewing agents would love to meet with you. I can be contacted via email; ... more

Dp2 answered:
Although there are several reasons for why your broker might have been able to get that low rate (eg his relationships with specific lenders, new lending programs, etc), the actual reason why is probably less of your concern. Just know that some lenders are willing to refinance at lower rates than they'd be willing to lend for new financing (which could be another reason why).

Besides, whether you're able to lock in 5.0% or 5.18% . . . both rates are considerably lower than 6%.

Christine Markow answered:
Jessica, there are many programs as you mentioned, being that your husband is a Veteran and career fire fighter. If you want I can put you in touch with some great mortgage loan specialists that can discuss your options. I know there are a lot of mortgage programs even if your score is in the 600's so I don't know how low your husband's score is and why so you should discuss with a mortgage rep (who can even discuss ways to possibly improve your husbands score, depending on the underlying reason why its lower than yours). Just let me know!
