I agree with Chris. Craigslist is a great resource for places for rent. Since there a lot of home on the market now you may also want your agent (if you are working with one) to contact some sellers and see if they would be willing negotiate a lease to own situation. The MLS also posts rental home altough the list on Craigslist is usually more extensive. If you send me an email to LeeStiber@kw.com I can go through the MLS and email you list of rentals if you like.

I would recommend you go to http://www.craigslist.org. It is a great site for rental listings....just click on Philadelphia and enter Conshy into the search line.

HI Nugirl63,
Everyone wants to be in Conshi either because of job, commute, attractions, low taxes, proximity to CC, etc. Unfortunately, there was a huge fire here last year that destroyed a newer hi-rise rental community (several buildings) in Conshi. As a result of the 100's of now homeless renters, the rental frequency rose very quickly here as sellers who were unsuccessful selling their homes had more luck renting them privately instead. I think we have outgrown that phase and are moving back now to a more normal rental market here. There aren't many, if any actual "new" rental communities around so to speak, not like those hi-rises we had. What you are more likely to find are homes for sale that are also for rent. Try King Of Prussia, too. Since Conshi has so many versatile neighborhoods, I would take the suggestion of the other REALTORS on Trulia to search Craigslist (and Realtor.com as well as they now have a rental section), and drive by each house to be sure about that particular block. And also link up with an agent who can search the few homes that will be listed in the MLS for you. It also never hurts if you see a home you like that is for SALE to have your agent ask if they would consider renting it for a while ("until the market picks up"). Good Luck!
