Our new house!! !......big update

Posted by   + Show Post

so we have been waiting on one thing before we closed on the house.the second story of the house was an addition to the house its about 15yrs old.well we had to wait on the owner to show us the permits he got to add the 2nd part and we needed the basement inspected and we were done we were closing everything was looking great we started packing and everything.no one saw what happened tonight coming.well my husband went out with the inspector to look at the basement and the people that were renting the house (the owner used it as a rental property) never told the owner that the sliding glass door to the basement was having problems with water and the basement is covered in mold there was mold everywhere and the guy never got permits to build the second story so now the bank wont give us the mortgage.so now we are right back to where we started and im so upset we loved that house and our kids were so excited about moving in.plus we just wasted about 4,000$ doing everything we needed to do on our end


this is the new house we are going to have our realtor call on tomorrow for us

I never heard of that, I need to get out more lol.
How are the taxes there?
Our house in langhorne was 5k in taxes a year-
Here in delaware it's all together with your mortgage and we only pay 1200 total (and that's with car and home owners ins too) we want to go back to pa but the taxes are so high compared to here, it was why we came- you get a big house with property and its cheap- but it sure does suck here lol


Quoting Babymama7710:


We are about 2hrs right now from there but our new house Lincoln university pa and that's about an hr away


Quoting MammaPaparazza:

I am from langhorne pa but living in delaware

My brother was living in nj near pennsauken but he moved back to pa too


Quoting Babymama7710:

Quoting MammaPaparazza:

Quoting Babymama7710:

Quoting Babymama7710:

The price really doesn't sound expensive to me for the acreage and the size of the place, it sounds like a good price. And that it is only a little more than you are paying for rent is really nice.
