Dear Gina:

Closing costs tend to be around 3-4% of the purchase price for buyers; sellers it is less. A breakdown of general closing costs can be found here:

Best of luck! If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I'm not sure what you're asking about. Are you trying to buy a house using a bankruptcy tax rule?

If you don't have good credit you can use a CO- signer. Someone with good credit who will sign on a loan with you. You should speak directly with a lender that works with mobile home loans. You also may need the CO-signer to sign the park lease for the lot rent. If you need the name and number of a bank who can help you with a loan, email me directly at Carla@ and I will give you the person we suggest. ... more

That is a great question. I have two buyer clients that had purchased at The Peninsula a couple of years ago and both couples absolutely love it. My husband Bill and I were there on Saturday evening for an "informal Formal" dinner dance by the pool. We were invited to join one of my clients (from PA, by the way) at their table with other friends of theirs and we had a great time. There was a good dance band, great food and service and it was a beautiful evening.

If you are looking for a resort style condo, you won't find anything else like it in Coastal Delaware. The pricing available on a few units right now present an incredible value. My husband and I have both played golf at The Peninsula and it is a beautiful course. If you would like to discuss this more I hope you'll give me a call at 302-645-4564, my direct line at the office, or email me at

I would certainly contact an attorney if I were you. There may be provisiions in the contract that a good attorney could find to help you. In this day and age of financial sensitivity, you would think that the builder would be a little more considerate. I would also consider contacting a local news organization such as Channel 6 in Philly and maybe their consumer dept could take up your case. They have done wonders for others. ... more

Kae Quillen answered:
Some homes located away from areas near water have basements. Due to our high ground water table newer homes are generally not built with basements. Single-wide mobile homes are placed on lots and the piers under the trailer are secured to the ground and shirting is installed around the bottom of the trailer. Double-wide trailers can also be placed in the same fashion or will sometimes be placed on a block foundation. ... more

Dave Burris answered:
Closing costs vary according to whatever fees the attorney and banks assign, including points. The largest single line-item for a buyer would be transfer tax, which is 3% total, usually split between the buyer and the seller. I usually tell clients to budget around 4-5%, which should cover everything within reason. One caveat to that is new construction, which can include impact fees in the thousands. ... more
