What is minimum lot size to build in Heidelberg township lehigh ounty pa

Answer

You also need to research the taxes in Lehigh County! This is a very important factor! I've been working with clients that are getting out of Lehigh & moving to Berks County due to the huge tax increase/reassessment that has taken place. I also have clients that "can't sell" their homes in Lehigh County because of the taxes. New Construction creates the highest taxes for a home owner. Beware as you do your research.

are agent fees negotiable

Answer

IF you want to sell, you will pay the 6%, which is now split down to only 3% for each agent. Another agent made the point that your property will have less showings due to the lower co-op. There were very FEW cases where I ever agreed to less than 6%, and I actually received calls from agents saying, "If you agree to a 3% co-op, I will schedule a showing". Remember it's brutal out there for real estate agents. If you want a good agent, & want your house sold at the highest price possible, you will pay them to work 100% for you & compensate them for 3%. As another agent said, "you get what you pay for".

Job Switch

Answer

The best thing to do is check with your lender. I've have found with my FHA buyers that make a job change, that if they switch for a better job, it will not effect them.
