In general where there is a strong rental market, there are many renters and not as many rentals, the rents will rise, following the laws of "supply and demand". Also there is no incentive for landlords to update because "it will rent anyway". Rental homes are typically in busier locations and have less desirable forms of heating systems. Consequently they have a lower value as a single family home and therefore lower acquisistion cost for an investor purchasing rentals. ... more

Allison, why not work with an area experienced Realtor in your area of interest. That Realtor will then
always be ready to answer all your questions, get you the info you are interested in, find you the right properties for YOU in your size and price range, why do this on your own/

The buyers agent requires from you YOUR LOYALTY YOU JUST WORK WITH ONE REALTOR, so that
that Realtor is fully committed to YOU and work hard on your behalf and in your interest.....

The services of a Buyers Agent are free to you as they usually get paid by the Sellers side out of the
seller's proceeds. And the Buyers Agent will do so much more for you besides making the search so much easier for you, and the entire process pleasant leading to a successful closing.

consider, and if you need the recommendation of a good Realtor in your area feel free to get back to
me for recommendations.

You have a lot of wonderful answers and depending on the feedback that your agent should have received from showings, you should know the answer as to what the problem really is. Most all the time it is price, but it could be any of the other things that have been mentioned. ... more

Keep in mind it's also just another piece of the puzzle they review for your home loan. No biggie, any loan you get would most likely ask for bank statements
