If you desire to do so, or if the mortgage lender requires one, then it would be obtained and paid for by you, the buyer. ( Line 432 PAR ASR). You could also Elect to do so as an inspection contingency but it is not a requirement of property transfer in Pennsylvania. (Line 281 PAR ASR)

I am not an attorney and this is in no way legal advice.

I would be happy to answer any other questions about the purchasing process should you have any. Feel free to contact me directly.

You should find a Realtor in your area who can work for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she will be able to search the MLS for properties that fit your criteria.

Your real estate agent should have sent you the new Community information feature that our TREND mls has linked to the mls number of the property. It shows a lot of this information for you . In regards to children, the very best way to find out is to ask the neighbors that you see.

If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly!
Have a great Friday night!

Michael Emery answered:
If you are considering foreclosure, you need to talk to an attorney. Without knowing your specific situation (your assets, number of mortgage(s) and type of mortgage(s), no one on Trulia could be in a position to give you advice.

You might also want to talk to a tax professional to ensure there will be no adverse tax consequences related to your foreclosure.

According to line 327 of the PA Agreement of Sale, if the buyer fails to respond or terminate within the time frame, the buyer is agreeing to accept the property as is. I am not an attorney and this should not be construed as legal advice. Please consult a PA real estate attorney for legal advice in this matter. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
You need to find out how many rentals versus owner occupied, you should check to see if they are solvent by obtaining their current budget and a years worth of minutes from their condo meetings. you should review the condo docs and bylaws. I would also walk trhough and talk to the people who live there, simply ask them what the like or dont like. Ask if there are any problems they know of.

Good luck with your search, please see my blog on condos

First, get preapproved with a mortgage company. Then call an agent to represent you and help you through the process. Is the home listed for sale?

Fran and Mark Redding answered:

There is no direct rail service to Collegeville. Check out the towns along the R5 and R6 rail lines. Paoli, Exton and West Chester would meet your geographic requirements. We like Phoenixville, which is an easy commute to Collegeville and 20 minutes to the Paoli train station.
Take a look at the Septa rail maps for help in picking an area, then find a realtor for local advice.

Which property? What are the circumstances? If you are talking about the sale of a home, then it is up to the seller to ensure that everything is removed which does not belong and that the interior of the home is broom swept prior to settlement.

Hope that helps,

Hello, Sassylady,

It would be very foolish of me to quote any numbers to you without seeing your home, the interior condition, the location in the development, etc. The David Cutler homes have always been very popular. I am intimately familiar with that model - my son lives in one in another development.

If you would like to have a peek at values in your development, please go to A "snapshot" of market activity on your particular development will be sent to your email direct.y. When you are ready to discuss things in detail, please contact me. My many years of appraisal experience, coupled with my outstanding sales background will be a dynamite combination to help you get your home priced right, so that it will sell in a reasonable amount of time, for the highest possible price and with the least stress. When have our conversation, I will demonstrate the 8 ways of how you will benefit by having me represent you in the sale of your home.

Good Luck,

Carol Murray Cei

Kitsap answered:
If the price you'd end up with is comparable to what other homes in your neighborhood have been sold for, then it might be smart to take it.

If you don't want to sell it for that price and/or you don't mind loosing the buyer, counter. ... more

Judy May, Esquire, REALTOR answered:
Hi Amit. Center Point Farms homes are beautiful! I just did a cursory search of recent home sales in this development and it appears that nothing has sold in the past 6 months in the $400Ks. In the past 6 months, 5 homes sold ranging from $335K to $380K. Of course, the value of ANY home depends upon a number of variables, including square footage, lot, upgrades, etc.

If you haven't yet hired a Realtor as a buyer's agent, I would HIGHLY recommend you do that right away. A Realtor will offer invaluable advice as you make this important investment. I recommend that you interview 2-3 Realtors and really "grill 'em" with hard questions, like: what makes you different from other Realtors? please provide me with some referrals who you've worked with before. why should I hire YOU? etc. Then, choose the Realtor that you like and trust -- you need to feel comfortable that the Realtor you hire is experienced and will look out for your best interests.

If you're interested, I'd appreciate the opportunity to EARN your business. I can be reached direct at (610) 324-5240. You can also find out more about me on my website at

Good luck to you, Amit! Don't hesitate to call me with any questions you may have as you embark on this exciting homebuying process.
