There is many renters in the PGH area that will accept a chapter 7. Most renters or property owners are very much in the same position as someone with a chapter 7. i work with a few Property owners that have no issue accepting a chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge as long as the income and verifiable and your able to pay the rent. Please feel free to contact me if you need any help.... more
You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!
The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.
There is no FORM printed by anyone; there are just too many variables.
The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?
This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!... more
The listings you're seeing on different websites are from tne West Penn Multi List where realtors from all brokerages market their properties. The agent forwarded you what was currently available from the Multi list - that is the most current and up-to-date resource of inventory. A little patience, flexibility and the assistance of one realtor and you'll find your dream home soon!... more
Thanks for posting your question on Trulia.com!
The answer you seek will depend on the area of Pittsburgh you choose to start your rental portfolio.
My office has a property management division that can answer them and help you start your portfolio prior to any purchase.
Same goes with the FHA203k question, I have a lender or two that I can refer you to for the correct answer since that is their specialty and things change in the lending world.
Feel free to reach out to me if you need further assistance.... more

Since you will be here for years would you consider buying? I agree, very hard to find a rental that allows any pets. In Pittsburgh you could buy a home for possibly less/month then rent/month. Call or email me for discuss further options! Mollyfinley@howardhanna.com 412-427-9668... more
I see a couple of properties that match your criteria. Give me a call or an email address if you wish to see more information. I can also set you up on an automatic notification if other properties matching the criteria you are seeking become available.... more
I was able to find a single townhome rental in the Cheswick area, through the multi-list. You must tell me what your budget is and how many bedrooms you need. Also, do you have pets (sometimes landlords will not accept pets), when do you need to move-in, how long do you want to lease, do you need a garage, etc..? If you want me to look for a rental for you, then please provide this information to me.... more
I can help you if you are interested in purchasing but if you are looking to rent Arbors Management may be a broker to call. Also check some of the websites like Craigslist but be very careful as there may be scams. Unfortunately most rentals are not put onto the multi-list so you may have to contact numerous places. Also rentals are currently at a premium as there are not many available. If you are thinking of buying, with interest rates as low as they currently are, you may find that the monthly payment to own is less then to rent.... more

This is the address of the Sales and Leasing office of the Summerset at Frick Park neighborhood.
There are properties for sale on Parkview Blvd that claim to have both public and school transportation. I would contact the leasing office at 412 422 1144 to confirm what transportation is available. There may be school buses running in the neighborhood, but the nearest bus lines are at Forward and Beechwood Blvd or on Browns Hill Rd, which could be a considerable walk.... more
Very likely a scam. The scammers can easily check the same records with the assessor's office, then pretend to be the owner.
Tell you what: Ask the supposed landlords to e-mail you a copy of their driver's license. It probably should show 1305 W. Pierce as their address. Even if it doesn't, it'll have a picture. Take the picture, show it to the neighbors, and ask if that person really did live at 1305 W. Pierce.
But don't send any money unless you've 100% verified that the people you're dealing with are the owners. And at this point, you haven't.... more
