Tod Novak answered:

It would depend on the nature of the judgement and whether or not it will impact the bank's ability to ensure 1st lien position. This is probably worth a conversation to determine further mortgage opportunity.

As a local lender I would be glad to help! Please message me a good time for us to talk this coming week.

Asked by Ann, New Hope, PA •Sat Apr 13, 2013

Very good question Ann. Most people don’t realize how critical the choice of Real Estate Agent is to their process of buying or selling a home.

Agents for Buyers must be;

Ethical, Experienced, Knowledgeable

Able to establish the clients best interest as first priority

Establish the Steps of the Process in the most effective order

Clarify the steps

Guide the client through the process of learning their market

Able to objectively clarify which homes are the best buys

Able to recognize and clarify potential issues and Pitfalls

Able to clarify legal obligations and issues

Must be a Master of Negotiator

Experienced with Inspectors and Inspections

Familiar with the area

So the first step for someone buying real estate is to gather all the objective useful information they can find. Than interview Agents. Know the right questions to ask and what the right answers should be.

An ethical experienced Agent reduces the odds of problems to almost zero. When the clients unlock the door to their new home for the first time they will be happy after a pleasant experience and know that they have accomplished the best possible with their resources.

Home is sacred and for most rates in the top three priorities. The experience for the client of finding and purchasing Home should always be considered by agents to be one of the most important obligations of an agents life.

Very Good Question Ann, Thumbs Up!

Best Wishes, Stephen Webber, 34 Years of Real Estate for First Time Home Buyers

My recommendation is Murrysville, in Westmoreland County. It is just over the Allegheny border, has quick access to the PA Turnpike, and the school district, Franklin Regional, is one of the best anywhere. Westmoreland County has low taxes. The recreational opportunities in the mountains to the east are the best. I have a listing at 3901 Ridgemont, Murrysville that might interest you.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Depends on just how bad; most lenders prefer a 640 score, however there are other factors besides credit that determine mortgage qualification; therefore for a personalized answer, visit with any licensed loan officer, be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

There is hardly anything safe in between. Any other good area outside of center city is a bit away from I-95. Some areas of North East Phila may be OK but they are far from center city.
Northern Liberties and Fishtown are a bit closer but not more than bu a mile..
There is no truly good area sort of in between or more exactly the middle.. I would strongly suggest Art Museum Area in this case.
Please feel free to contact me any time. I will do searches for you to find something that will fit your budget.

Daniel Schwartzman answered:
Hi Billi,

Please email me at so we could talk more in detail. I want to see how I can help you find your next home. I assume that you are looking to buy rather than rent. In order to get a loan from a lender you would have to talk to a mortgage adviser, and I can certainly refer you to some good ones. After and if you get approved we can then start the process of looking for a home for you.
Please email me at the above address so we can get started.

Have a great day!

Generally no, as there is usually language in the Purchase Agreement that extends the date. The Purchase Agreement is the final say on this.
