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.

Chris,
First off, you don't have until the end of the year for the tax credit. It ends on December 1rst. Second, I would try to improve on your credit the best that you can. Third, save save save as much as you can for a down payment. Fourth, talk to a mortgage professional about what you can do to improve your situation in the next 6 months.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. the very best of luck to you!

Neilo,
Banks won't let you pick and choose. You should, however be able to qualify for a loan with a 660 score. It may limit the programs that you qualify for, but it may be done. If you would like to contact me, i would be happy to get all of your information to get you a little more accurate scenerio.
The very best of luck to you!

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.

Terrence Charest answered:
Legal options? You would have to get with a lawyer about it. When did you purchase the home? Did you go through a real estate agent or just go through the builder? If you had no representation, you may not have any legal ground to stand on. Also, could you prove that the builder's knew of this planned road work? What are the plans for the road? How close to your property will it be?

There are just too many questions to be asked for this forum. Get in touch with a real estate attorney.

Charles Allan Dick answered:
This one definitely needs to be addressed by your "real estate qualified" attorney.
While the numbers, credits, etc. can change on or just before settlment, they must:
1. Be reported accurately on the HUD1
2. Meet all the requirements of the law, FHA, agreement of sale, etc.

There are limits for:
1. The amount of gifts, credits, etc. that the buyer can receive from any party
2. There is a minimum amount of "cash" the buyer needs to supply (Lender specified)

And there may be more, but these are the first that come to mind.

Have your attorney review all of this and if you get a chance, let us know how you make out.

Since you are coming to the realization that you did not fully understand the changes thrown
at you during settlement, it seems pretty clear, it shouldn't have closed.

Chris & Stephanie Somers answered:
I think the best first step is to call a mortgage broker to see what you are qualified for. If you need a recommendation, feel free to email us from our site below.

That way you will know what your price range and so forth so you will know what price range of homes to look for.

Your next step would be to consult with a local realtor in that area. I can refer you to someone there as well who knows the neighborhoods, values, market.... etc.

William Leigh Holt answered:
Beryl: Any realtor can help. We have an MLS system that will find property in the price range with which you are comfortable. Condition and price go hand in hand and, at the price you suggest, there will be property in greater or lesser need of repair. The thing to do is to meet a realtor and review what is on the market, your source of funding and then start casting your net. You may find it necessary to look further. By the way, most of the road you like runs in Lower Makefield Township, not Yardley Boro, so here’s a clue to start with. If you would like to meet with me, I can set up an appointment for you in my office. ... more

Joe,
I don't think I would choose homes by the property taxes. They can change at any time. I bought a home with low taxes and was reassessed shortly after I bought it and my taxes doubled.
I would choose a home on where you would like to live. The best of luck to you!

Michael D Delp answered:
Hello Michelle,
In most cases, the taxes are escrowed through your mortgage lender. A separate account is set aside that you add to each month in your mortgage payment along with your homeowners insurance. Usually the taxes are due twice a year. The township taxes are paid in the Spring and the School taxes are paid in the Fall. If your taxes are escrowed, the lender pays them out of the escrow account.
If you dont want to escrow your taxes, you would be responsible to pay them at these times. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Good Luck!
Michael

Vam,
Morrisville itself, doesn't have that many condo/townhouse communities available, but you might want to look into areas of Yardley, Langhorne and Fairless Hills.

Specifically, the following subdivisions might contain the properties that you're looking for: Rock Creek Run (Yardley), Avenrow (Fairless Hills), Oxford Crossing (Langhorne) and Chestnut Grove (Morrisville).

If you have any questions regarding these subdivisions or wish to know what's currently available for sale, please don't hesitate to contact my anytime or visit my website at http://www.ephiladelphiarealestate.com.

Best regards,

Russell Volk

Keith Sorem answered:
The market speaks most loudly through it's buyers. I do not want to appear to be insensitive, or unknowledegable.
First, Cambridge is not my market area (disclaimer)
Second, how long has your home been on the market?
In that time, how many homes, like yours, have sold?
So it is not a matter of homes not selling, it is a matter of VALUE. Buyers want value, they want the best deal.
That is why you hire a Realtor to expose your home's value to the market. Of course, 80% of marketing is price. You need to be within plus or minus 5% to get a response from the market. But there is also why a buyer would rather buy your home than another.....and also, why you need to sell, when , and what are the drawbacks if it does not sell.

I recommend talking with a Local Realtor and discussing your plans. If you are unable to find one yourself, look on Trulia. If that does not work then let me know. we'll find someone with whom you can talk.

Good luck. Time is of the essence~

Deborah Madey answered:
Realtor buzz about your home might get you showings, if your are priced correctly. Realtors talk about properties because they are "good deals" or the property fits "a specific buyer" or because it has sought after features. I visit a lot of properties during broker opens so that I can keep up w/ the market. I talk about properties that are exceptional and are priced right.

You must combine the marketing efforts with right pricing. Falter on either, and it will compromise your results.

Getting Realtor attention, once it is right priced, is a matter of broker opens, good text descriptions, and good visual support in photos and virtual tours.

Ian A. Wolf answered:
Best bet is to mail to people in preforeclosure. If you go to the sheriff office link below you can get the list. That is where you'll find your best deals. Otherwise good deals do come up pn the MLS, but it depends on your price range. I can offer you more guidance as someone you has done some rehabs in the morrisville and yardley area. I also know some great agents down there that are easy to work with. Let me know if I can help you further. ian@exitrealtygold.com ... more
