Navigating the Philadelphia real estate market can seem like a daunting task for potential home buyers – not to mention the myriad of options that are available when it comes to mortgages, home buyer’s insurance and all of the other aspects associated with buying a home. However, there are quite a few different resources available for any potential home buyer that is looking to enter the real estate market in the Philadelphia area.
Prominent Bank Websites
Potential home buyers who are considering the option of purchasing a property that has been foreclosed upon by a bank can normally obtain information directly from any of the major bank’s websites. It is important to know though, that purchasing a foreclosed property can involve a lot of time and effort. In many cases, banks are not aware of the condition of these properties either, so it is essential to have a thorough inspection performed before agreeing to put in an offer. Potential buyers should be aware of the fact that in many cases, foreclosed properties may need to have a lot of repairs and maintenance performed before they can be deemed as habitable.
The Philadelphia Landworks Website
The Philadelphia Landworks division is able to assist potential home buyers who are keen to buy property that is city-owned. However, as much as 90% of property owned by the city consists of vacant lots, which means that buyers will have to purchase the land and then have their home built on it afterwards. If buyers wish to take this route, they will need to ensure that their property plans conform to current city building codes and standards – which can be quite an expensive and time-consuming process. There may also be various terms, conditions and stipulations regarding the types of structures that can be built on these properties.
