Wayne will be a little tricky to find a 3 bed 2 bath rental for under $1500. The majority of Wayne, PA falls within the Radnor School District which is excellent and very sought after. With such a great school district and high property values, the rental prices are generally higher as well.

I would suggest broadening your search to include Upper Merion Township, Newtorn Square, and Marple Township. You may have better luck finding reasonable options. They are all easily accessible to Route 202 and I-476.

My initial search of Wayne only came up with a few listings for rent that meet your criteria and they are closer to $2000/month.

I was just at this property late last week, and I can tell you that it sits on high ground. The lot itself does slope down from the street towards the house.

I'd be happy to discuss your housing needs with you further, and I look forward to hearing from you.

You might try Home Properties in Devon. Walkable to the Strafford train station and within your price point..
I imagine there are some older rental apartments in the area but unfortunately I am not familiar with them. I suggest you try Craig's List.
Good luck with your search

Jen, I have lived in Radnor Township for over 20 years and my kids went through Radnor schools... so I am very familiar with the boundaries for Wayne Elementary School. Unfortunately, there are no 3 bedroom listings in the MLS right now in that area for under $2,000/mo. There are two listings which only have 2 bedrooms for $1,400/mo. and $1,750/mo... or, there are 2 townhouses available which are asking $2,400/mo. and $2,500/mo. Both townhomes are vacant and easy to show. Let me know if you'd like to tour them. Not sure when you want to move, but there should be more inventory hitting the market in the spring, as the peak "turnover" for rentals coincides with the end of the school year. I can be reached at or cell (610) 329-7399/office (610) 688-4310. Good luck! ... more

I just sold 71 Cabot in May. Those previous Sellers told me they heard the Association voted to not allow renters anymore, that it will now be an owner-occupied only community? They were/are very rentable. I wonder if they will allow a grandfather policy.

This neighborhood is very popular, and the house you're referencing is next to the one I helped my clients buy then sell. We looked at it at one point and it needed a lot of work.

This is outrageous. I had another client with the same problem. I believe they were able to get it corrected by calling the offending site which started with a "Z!" We all know there are lots of mistakes on sites that pull their information from tax records which are in turn inaccurate. I would expect that there will be a class action suite at some point as well. What site is it listed on? ... more

The listings belong to your broker. However, many brokers will work with homeowners that want their listings to move to the new brokerage with you. Read the Independent Contractor Agreement that you have in place with your broker as it should be spelled out in that document. ... more

It's important that you hire a competent Realtor and ensure that your protected as much as possible. There are inherent risks in renting out your property. I always run a tenant check that includes criminal, credit and lease default histories. In addition I carefully review the lease options that are open to landlords that you may not be aware of. ... more

Tim Page answered:
Ouch, neither sound like a good choice. If you have a driveway, you can remove the other dirveway to create a backyard. If you do not, keep the driveway and create a small garden patio or somthing. The function of a driveway is much better selling point with some decorated flower pots around the edges. Parking is one of the main things that can make a person really, really mad and they might not even consider your home without two places to park.

You never want to choose between a bedroom and a bathroom. But if you must, the first choice is three bedrooms and one bathroom. Next, would be two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms are best at or above ground level.

Talk to a Realtor or a Pro and have them walk through your home. You do not want to make the bedrooms too small or the bathroom too small or change the floor plan and nothing really works. Bathrooms next to the bedrooms and 1/2 bathroom on the main level is nice.

I think you should find a home you like using an agent you trust and who will give tyou straigh answers to your questions. If you find the right house now negotiate. Worst case you rent in temporary and keep looking. The cost of money right now is low and there is a lot of inventory the sellers of which may not want to sit around through another winter. Best thing get out there and find something you like in your price range and then negotiate!!! ... more

Brian Durham answered:
Dear Home Buyer,

I would like to say that to your question not sure if your thinking on selling and buying or just undecided and remodeling but how ever. I would take the fourth bedroom away and make a full bath. If your trying to sell your home or thinking about it you still have that third bedroom to attract buyers. I would say if you can make that to a master suite if you do not already have one that is a big advantage. Hope this was some help. ... more

Interest rates are not the only factor. Our housing market is very stable and has survived much higher rates than what they are predicting over the next few years. You get to deduct the interest and RE taxes from your income—where else can you get an investment like that? ... more

Hi Kacrewood,

Welcome to Trulia Voices and thank you for your question.

When you speak of the 'original sale price' in your question, do you mean the price of a prior sale or did you mean to say the original list price?

If the former, please note that sales transaction data comes to us via that which is made publicly available by the county assessor's office. I would thus recommend that you contact the assessor's office to ensure that they have the appropriate information on file for the property in question. Once they update their records, our display should update automatically thereafter with the new information.

If however our price history module is missing the original list price, we may or may not be able to add that information to our display depending on original price that was submitted to us for the listing in question. In this case I encourage you to access the link below to contact our Customer Service team with a link to the listing, or the complete property address and price, so they can investigate further.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson

If the mortgage documents REALLY are falsified, it's probably criminal and the contract is no longer valid. Get with a real estate attorney with your proof and see what can be done.
