As always, our goal is to give you some money-saving tips to help make the buying or selling process a bit easier on you. Recently, we’ve received a lot of questions about programs for people with a fixed income.

If you need to get your home updated to make it safe, april-1you need to check with your individual boroughs to determine what you need in order to be eligible for certain programs. Here are a few examples of what they might require:

  • Your income must be around a certain limit
  • You must be a resident of that borough or township
  • You must own and occupy a single-family residence
  • Your taxes and sewer must be current
  • You cannot be an employee of the borough or township
  • You cannot have previously participated in the program

Usually, if you meet all these requirements, you’re eligible to have the township or borough come in and do that work necessary to make your home safe. If you have any questions about this topic, or if you need real estate assistance of any kind, give us a call or shoot us a quick email. We are always available to give you a hand!
