I am not a local agent . Just a suggestion , you can try going to auction. com . You may be able to search it there. A real estate agent can work with you on an auctioned home. They would be able to tell you 100% what to do and where to find it/ None the less i would search the site i stated above.
Good luck... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Yes, Lesley there are a lot of homes selling in Penn Hills at that price range and I feel it's an excellent place to live. Here are some reasons for the excessive amounts. If you look at the entire Penn Hills area it has a lot of homes. These homes for the most part are very similar in sqft, so the prices are going to be similar. Another reason is lets face it it's an older neighborhood demographically. And we are seeing close in age like minded individuals ready to move on.
Right now it's a very competitive market there. Homes need to be show ready (more than just clean and tidy.) Are homes selling their, yes. Will your home sell there, possibly. If you're thinking about selling your home their, I'd be happy to help show you what it's going to take, how long it will be on the market for and what you can expect to walk away with when sold. Feel free to email me direct or stop by my website. Hope this helps.... more

For the buyer, the credit guidelines are a little more flexible, and the borrower may qualify for 100% financing (depending on debt ratio and cost of the property)
For the seller, there are a few non allowable buyer fees that the seller must pay.
Best of luck... more
You have the option to pay for a subscription service to receive forclosure listings in advance (foreclosures.net, etc.) if you'd like. However, these days the bank is more likely to hold onto their asset through the tax sale process and sell it themselves after foreclosure. This means that they are almost all listed through a broker, so you can find them by just searching the area and price range you would like as you normally would.
Also, a buyer's agent can keep you up to date on foreclosures so that you are the first to see them when they become available.
Good Luck!... more
