this really is a difficult issue, and depends on your definition of 'contaminated soil' some cases the answer is absolutely yes, but the real answer depends on you, the buyer and how much of a significance it is to you...I would recommend testing by an appropriate professional to ascertain the significance of the issue ... more

Alan May answered:
Seems as though the agent's advice was wrong... but not sure it breaches ethics.

The agent, and the buyer both, had to imagine that there was a possibility that the property might appraise, and having put the bid in writing, there was a possibility that the buyer might get caught, and have to pay that amount. ... more

Hello Sheryl,

This property is still available.
If you are interested in this property, please contact me an we can reviiew your questons on this propety.
Many times the information on line does not give a full perspective on the property. In cases like these, a buyer can greatly benefit from having a Buyer's Agent to ask the questions on behalf of the buyer's best interest.
Please feel to contact me at your convenience.

Hi Ramon,

I work with a lot of investors and have found the following key signs to look for when looking at a neighborhood:

Neighbors house. Is it maintained, How are they taking care of their flowerbeds and can you notice any defered maintenance? anyone who doesn't take pride in their house will not keep the kids in check

Cars on the street: are there any clunkers sitting out? anyone who doesn't take care of their car most probably won't take care of their house and family.

Hang-out factor: are there kids hanging out in the evenings? If there are kids just hanging out and not doing anything this usually lead to trouble.

Is there any Graffiti? if so, just run

Litter Factor: is there any litter in the streets up against the curb? people who don't clean up normally don't believe in the pride of the neighborhood and won't get involved it there is trouble brewing.

Call the local police department: get a list of the 911 calls for the neighborhood

Hope this helps,

The Kim Tokar Team

Keep in mind that taxes do vary, therefore if asking about a specific property/properties, keep in mind that any local agent/realty office can help you--if looking to buy in the near future, do consider an agent of your own. ... more

I think I already answered this question on your other post - but they can vary from 4-10k on average, depends on the part of Yardley you are looking in.. They will be less in the Boro and outlying areas of the Boro, higher in Lower Makefield Twp. If you have a specific property in mind, let me know and I'd be happy to look it up for you. ... more

Yardely is an easy commute into the city. One train from Trenton to Midtown. I did the commute for 16 years and many people do it still. There were many people in the office with similar or worse commutes from long Island and parts of the Bronx.
Give us a call if you want to discuss details or search the yardley Newtown area.

Joe Sheehan answered:
Yes you can. Bear in mind their may be other reasons besides your offer price that caused your offer to be unacceptable. I would have your agent ask the seller why they rejected your original offer before submitting a new one, unless, of course, you've already done that.

Best of luck to you. I hope that info helps.

Yes. He can be the only one on the deed, but that does not mean as a spouse that you have no ownership rights. Consult a Real Estate Attorney. If you need a reference, let me know.

Russell Volk answered:
I assume you're trying decide between purchasing a townhouse vs. a single family home. It really all depends on what type of lifestyle you're looking for and how much space you need. With a townhouse you have an HOA, who will take care of the lawn maintenance, snow removal, trash removal, may include a pool and a club house, etc. With a single family home, you get the space, privacy, the backyard and nobody tells you what to do and how to live.

There are pluses and minuses to both, but decided what type of lifestyle you're looking for and go from there.

If you need any help or have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

Ruthless answered:
What you might try doing is searching local real estate web sites the provide the tax information. When an agent lists a home in the MLS, they enter all sorts of information including the taxes. However, when that data is transferred to national or common websites, only some of the information is given. The sites that give you more information will also want more information from you in return - such as email, phone, status, etc.
Good luck,
