Your Realtor can screen homes listing on your local multiple listing service to homes that only have water and sewer.  Be frank with your agent regarding your wants & needs.  Remember that the seller almost always pays the Realtor not the buyer.

 Septic systems are common here in Hunterdon and Warren Counties. Well water is tested by the seller and unless it's a short sale, any non-functioning septic system needs to be repaired by the seller as well.  Septic system inspections can be a bit costly.

A previous post stated that banks won't write mortgages for homes without public water and sewer.  This is not correct.  Banks are very willing to write mortgages for homes with well and septic, provided the septic tank is a functioning, engineered system.  Cesspools are no longer acceptable form of waste removal in NJ.  

Good luck with your home search.

I don't think one can get a home mortgage with no water/sewer or septic tank.

Hello,

 To the best of my knowledge I don't think you can put this criteria into the "more" section. Tell your agent to provide you with listings only  with public water (non - well) and public sewer. The search field criteria settings in most MLS's are very specific.
