We are middle class as well and we live in USC. We enjoy it here very much. We're actually selling our 3 bedroom for a 4 bedroom home and plan to stay here. Of course the taxes are higher here than other places but you have to consider that your in the best public school district around. There are plenty of homes here that are nice that aren't in the multi $100's. And also, just for added FYI, my friends also live in USC on one teacher's salary and they make it work. Good luck! ... more

Deutsche Bank is not something you can contact. It is like saying contact the Federal Government. The people you contact over the phone have no authority to help you. Now if you want to know within minutes of when a particular home can be purchased that is a auto search set up in the mks so you are notified by email when it hits the market. I am happy to do that for you.

Hi Aubre,

Thanks for your question. The best time to list your home is as early in the spring as possible. The longer you wait to list your home the more competition you will have later in the spring.

Interest rate have stayed low and there are many buyers looking now who plan to move in June! With more properties on the market right now and it's taking some homes longer to sell so allow time. and make sure it shows well. I hope this help and good luck.

In Virginia, we have something called shrink/Swell and it is a soil that expands and contracts with moisture content. When they submit plans to build the home, the footing specifications are determined by the shrink swell soil ratio. This may be the same in Pennsylvania. I'm sure if you speak with your zoning and codes compliance department in your city or county, you will get all the answers you need. ... more
