For Rent in Philadelphia>Question Details

OD, Renter in Philadelphia, PA

I am in search of a rental realtor to help me navigate this complex sometimes seedy Philadelphia market.

Asked by OD, Philadelphia, PA Sun Jan 13, 2013

I am a single mother of one looking for a 2bd apt or house for rent in the following zip codes: 19130, 19146, 19107, 19103, 19102. I understand these are prime locations but it has been quite a challenge to find something decent under 2k a month, which is over my budget. My budget is $1000 - $1500. I am gainfully employed and would like to find a place that is within budget, clean, decent neighborhood, full kitchen, living and dining room/area, preferably no carpet and allows cats.

If there is a dedicated professional who believes they can assist me please respond to this question.

Finding a two bedroom place for $1,500 is not uncommon. You just have to be patient while your agent gets creative.

I agree with what was stated below, find a competent agent and work with them.

I can help you, sure. We are property managers and deal with rentals almost daily. 2bdr in these areas at $1000 is unrealistic. $1300-$1500 is very possible. Please contact me at your earliest convenience so I can start my search for you.

OD, I have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath available for $1550 per month.. I think that the location would work for you and I believe that the Owner would be willing to consider a cat. I would be happy to show this unit to you, please send me your email address, or give me a call, and we can schedule an appointment that will work with your schedule.

I tend to be in Agreement with Dave... as long as the Agent is available for you...... you may be better off going exclusive and..... let the Agent do the leg work for you?

You can try our referenced site below and do some of a more real time search?

Just click on "Property Types" Rental and enter you zip codes.

I am a licensed PA Real Estate broker #SB 065543 and am available if you are willing to sign an exclusive agency contract /agreement that obligates you to work exclusively with me. This contract would obligate you to work only with me and you would also be responsible to pay me a fee equal to 1/2 of one months rent unless the fee is paid by the owner or listing agency of 1/2 of one months rent. I have been renting apartments and houses for 25 years and will listen to your needs. Oe you can bounce from broker to broker. and see what happens.
Best of luck in your search.
