yeah good question, I am thinking about doing the same and just found out that ducks may be an
even better choice for the back yard, I think each individual community and village, city has its own
rules and regulations, first whether it is allowed at all, and then the conditions and terms under
which the village or city will give permission, so you really need to go to the village or county it depends on where your live, the zoning and the rules of your area.

Good luck to you, I believe we all should have ducks or chickens in the back yard, but that is just me.

Hi Joy!

Quakertown is a great little town - lots of good shopping around and many places to go to do things! If you're interested in going to see some available houses this weekend, give me a call! I'd be happy to take you and to see some properties in different parts of the town.

Brian Luce answered:
Depending on Location - Yes there sure is. White Tailed Deer, Fox etc are the most common. Of course you also have your "average" Raccoons , Groundhogs and rabbits in most suburban backyards.

Properties that are close to / or back to woodlands and open space are your best bet though. More built-up areas / areas that are "boxed in" by major roadways will see significantly less of the larger wildlife.

Because the carousel that was in Hershey Park was moved there in 1972.

Here's a link to the member agencies in the Bucks County United Way:

There are a lot of very good groups on there. Many of them are looking for volunteers and people doing community service.

Also, here's a link to the Salvation Army of Bucks County: That's another very good organization.

Hope that helps.

Brian Luce answered:
I worked on Business Route 1 very close to the commons. The Conrail trains do "kind of rumble by" but I never really thought it was disruptive. I once showed a unit in Yardley that directly backed to the tracks and while the freight train came by (early evening), it did seem a bit loud in that particular unit.

Believe it or not, I've spoken to quite a number of people over the years that say that they don't even notice it. I guess you get used to it.

If it helps, (like you said it's kind of hit or miss) you may be able to "hang around" in the early evenings to see if you can catch one of the trains coming by.

Martin Millner answered:
Thanks for your question.
I would say that the demographics of Newtown and Yardley are very similar. Both are very old, historic and very charming, villages, if you are not familiar with them. Most people who say they live in either Yardley or Newtown, don't actually live in the respective towns, rather they live in one of the surrounding Townships, of either Lower Makefield (which surrounds Yardley) or Newtown, Northampton or Upper Makefield Townsips, which are contiguous with Newtown. Yardley itself, is about 4 miles from Newtown. Newtown is actually to the East of Yardley. One of the main differences, is that Yardley and Newtown feed into a different school district. Newtown feeds to the Council Rock school district, while Yardley feeds to Pennsbury. I write an active blog about both Yardley and Newtown, at, and you can research schools and houses on my website, at If you want more detailed answers to specific questions, I would be happy to help, in any way that I can. Thanks again for your question. ... more

Voices Member answered:
It is difficult to really say either way if home prices will continue to drop or if they will start to appreciate. On one side you could say that with all the homebuyer tax credits and the fact that were supposedly (major word being supposedly) through the worst of this recession then you could argue that the housing market has hit bottom. On the other side you can argue that the tax credits are only temporarily inflating the marker and all the ARM loans about to reset could trigger even more foreclosures and drop home prices even more. ... more

The fact that there were two recent sales is a good sign! Things are moving. The time to be concerned is when you see all 4 for sale and no movement. The market is definitely getting better and interest rates remain at an all time low, its a great time to buy! Feel free to call me at 215-221-4677 or email me at if you would like to discuss your home buying or selling needs. ... more

Charles Allan Dick answered:

Each area has their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to real estate. All three locations are decent areas to own a home and raise a family. They are all supported by the Central Bucks School district which is a good district. Some will favor, West or South or East, but all are good. Doylestown has some very advantageous "in-town" settings for those who enjoy walking to local attractions and it also has less urban settings where you can have a larger home, with a bigger yard. Warrington and Jamison are a bit more of the rural settings. Taxes can be vastly different depending on location and the time the property was last assessed. (The age of the property). Since you are looking for a newer home, you will find all the homes will be in the higher tax brackets. And generally, the order of highest to lowest would be Doylestown, Jamison, Warrington. But remember, the school tax is usually the highest of the three and all these locations are in the same school district so the millage rate would be the same. Regarding resale, again it's the buyer's desires driving the market. Buyer's preferences (urban, rural, etc.) at the time you try to sell will define the value of the property. What you really want to look out for are any long term community projects that could affect your property. (Such as the 202 bypass plans.) Other than avoiding any loss due to close proximity to a negative change in the surrounding acreage, you hopes of a "return" is speculative. What looks like the best investment today, may not be 5 years from now.
If you would like to discuss your plans further, feel free to give me a call. I'd be glad to meet with you and discuss your goals.

If you mean Morrisville Borough (19067) it is a very small quaint town along the N. E. Corridor.
The Lehigh Valley offers other areas that would be more up and coming.
If you would like to see some homes in these areas please give us a call.

You need to contact a real estate attorney, truly up to buyers to confirm all the development taking place in a given area, not all sellers/builders have to disclose those details. Contract may specific conditions regarding this. Sorry to read about your circumstance.
